Arrival Story:
I had to give away my cats when moving overseas and my parents agreed to a dog. Labs are real common in the UK and I fell in love when I saw him at the breeder's.

Murphie is a Scottish Lab who is an inside dog by default. It was to cold to leave him outside as a puppy and by the time he was old enough to handle the weather he told us no by first going under the fence and then by going over the gate. He loves to give snogs (kisses) and is a big lap dog.

Murphie's Life

Getting Old

I try to act like a young sprout, but I've come to the conclusion that I'm getting old. Quinten and Duncan wore me out while Dunc was here with their constant bickering. Mama says they were playing, but what does she know-she can't speak dog. They were constantly picking on each other and I had to referee and intefere with the occasional shout. Clueless Mama claims I would bark when I got jealous of the two brats 'playing' with each other. Little does she realize what a hard job I had with those two. I enjoyed having Dunc Munc around and harassing him some more, but I was glad to see him go and get some realitive peace and quiet around here.

Another reason I've concluded I'm getting old is I"m getting moles. Mama normally leaves them alone, but she had two taken off the other day. One had doubled in size in about a months time and was leaking serous fluid which was causing a secondary skin irritation where it was matting to my leg. The other one seemed to have the same initial characterisitics so it was also removed while I was asleep. Thankfully they weren't cancerous. Getting old is the pits, but at least Mama lets me sleep in now.


Another Brat!

Huuhh! Mama brought home another dog. Yeah-not. Actually I was excited at first, but Ellie doesn't like to play with me. She's such a dud. All she wants to do is lay in Mama's lap. She never wants to chase ball or wrestle. Although she did have fun on the walk the other day. Sissy dog was scared of the creek though and wouldn't walk through it. She followed Mama across a log. Then on the way back she fell in and was trying to jump back on the log instead of just walking out and the water was only up to her back. It was so funny! Hopefully Mama is able to find Ellie a home real quick. I want Mama back to myself. Plus it would be better for Ellie when she finds her forever home.


Goodbye Ivan

Ivan has come and gone. We moved back into the house early Friday morning before Mom went to work. Thursday night was loads of fun. I got into a fight with Sugar at 4:30 in the morning. I just wanted to sample some of her food and she got mad at me. Sheesh. Females. Thankfully we never lost power and no serious damage occured.
