Pets

It’s raining cats and dogs in here.

Life with Dogs

I’m pretty sure anyone with a dog or cat has been here…

“u poopin’?”

It took Ollie 10 years to learn to nudge a door open so I’ll let him have his victory.

The home office staff

I have the privilege of working from home one day a week, and being a former gamer with a former gamer’s large monitor makes it easy. But I couldn’t do it at all without my home office staff.

This is my security guard. He makes certain that I’m aware of anybody who tries to enter the premises. He often patrols the back yard and loudly informs me that all is not well. Or well. He’s just kind of loud.

“there’s a #*^#@ squirrel on the #$(&@&( porch!”

This is my IT tech. He’s most often found under my desk as I work, making sure the wires are fine. He’ll even unplug one once in a while to make sure I’m on my toes.

“i’ll let you know if the computer gets too warm”

And this is the Harry, the intern. He’s here to observe how often I get snacks from the kitchen.

*bubbles happily!*

Happy 2nd Birthday Murphy!

Two years ago today the skies grew dark over Hannibal, Missouri as this crazy knob entered the world.

who needs a nice yard?

In two years he went from this:

The face that destroyed a thousand things.

To this:

The face that still destroys a thousand things.

Lin-Manuel Miranda said this about his dog Tobillo…

To paraphrase:
Murphy had arrived, with all his fearlessness, tenacity & joy.
We made room; he curled right up.

“you want this ball? well you’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ well do ya, punk?”

Murphy does everything at 100%. He is HAPPY or he is SAD or he is ANGRY. He likes cold coffee, Sunday morning sausage, evening snuggles, and morning runs. (He runs, we try to get him to walk.) He hates the dark, my guitar, and when people dare walk by our house. He bites my pant legs when I practice yoga. He covers our faces with kisses when we come home. He still thinks the dog in the mirror is his mortal enemy.

And consider this Murphy’s contribution to the 10-year challenge, except this is a 10-minute challenge.

RIP, Barkbox toy.

Murphy brings an inordinate amount of joy to our home every day and he is worth every single sock he’s destroyed x 1000.

Snugging on a winter’s day.

Happy birthday, Murph. Here’s to many more! <3
