All We Want For Christmas…

All We Want For Christmas…

…is Spring! Brr! Murphy sez: I’m not a cold-weather dog. No way, no how. So you can imagine my dismay for the past two weeks when it’s been too cold to walk, or even hang out in the backyard barking at squirrels. It was okay for a night or two, but this is getting ridiculous. Mica sez: I’ll tell you what’s ridiculous. Ridiculous is those stupid fleece booties J makes us wear when it gets below about 5 degrees (f)….

A Fly-By “Hi”

A Fly-By “Hi”

Murphy sez: I think you all know by now that J is an unreliable translator. She gets confused sometimes, and we were too last week, on account of her being home an extra day for something she called a “fed-er-al hol-i-day”. I think it addled her brain a bit, but it’s okay. We got extra bully sticks, so no one’s complaining, right Mica? Mica sez: Nope. Well, not too much, anyways. I mean, the couch is always mine during weekdays,…

Coolin’ Down

Coolin’ Down

Mica sez: I noticed you’ve been more excited about walkin’ lately, Murph. What gives? Murphy sez: It’s not 9 billion degrees out, for one thing. I like walkin’ when it’s cool. We can go fast, and smell lots of stuff, and not fall over half-ded when we get home. It’s awesome! Mica sez: It is more comfy out, for sure. Of course we have to walk after dark now, which is okay until the lights in our leashes both run…

Go Away, Rain!

Go Away, Rain!

Mica sez: Rain sucks. I mean, how are we supposed to go out in the yard, much less go for a walk in this weather? Go away, rain. Bring back the sun! Murphy sez: Yeah – what he said! Wet feet are no fun, and I need my sun, dang it. Warm, sunny sunshine to nap in. This cold cloudy stuff is for the birds. Or not even for the birds. For no one. No one likes this! Mica sez:…

Itchy Scratchy

Itchy Scratchy

Mica sez: So Murph – I hear you’re gonna have to start wearing your cone at night too for awhile. J sure seemed upset this morning when she saw what you did to your scabs… Murphy sez: I know, I know. I was doing pretty good, leaving my leg alone not just at night, but early mornings. Especially after J started putting the yarn leggings over the top of my normal ones. I don’t like how the yarn feels on…

Night Walkin’ & Yummy Stuff

Night Walkin’ & Yummy Stuff

Murphy sez: Man, oh man. What are we gonna do about J, Mica? I mean, skipping one week’s blog post is one thing, but two? That’s a serious in-frack-shun. I think we should come up with a suitable punishment. Like she has to give us more treats or something. It’s not like we can type our stories ourselves… Mica sez: Humans are weird, Murph. Always doing all these things that they *think* are important, but really, nothing’s as important as…

Convo Corner: Aliens, Cats, & The Great Pumpkin Shortage

Convo Corner: Aliens, Cats, & The Great Pumpkin Shortage

Murphy sez: I’m not sure where to start this week, Mica. I mean, there’s so much to discuss. A cat, a pumpkin shortage, aliens, a hair guy, someone at the front door, those pesky squirrels in the neighbor’s tree, new sidewalks, new posting days…I mean, how are we gonna keep it all straight? Mica sez: Well geez, Murph. I think you just told everyone everything we had to talk about. We might as well just let the nice people go…

What A Week!

What A Week!

Mica sez: Wow, Murphy. It’s been a crazy week around here. I don’t even think people are going to believe it. Wild, wacky stuff. But I think we’re handling it pretty well, don’t you? Almost as good as those olympic people that J and B have been watching on TV this week… Murphy sez: Of course we are. Because we’re just that good. The “only a tiny bit of a freakout at the motorcycle gang who nearly ran us over…

Healing is Hard Work

Healing is Hard Work

Mica sez: Hey Murph – I notice your leg is a little worse for the wear. What’s up with that? I thought you were healing? Murphy sez: Well, I was. But then J was home last week, and B was gone, and I had a legging on all the time instead of my cone, and there’s been construction for that new school just down the street…I sorta went backwards a lil bit. And J put some “healing” gel on my…

Two-Wheeled Sneaky-People

Two-Wheeled Sneaky-People

Murphy sez: There sure are a lot of sneaky people riding those two-wheeled contraptions around lately, don’t you think, Mica? Seems like they come out of nowhere on our walks, and mostly from behind us. What’s up with that? Are they trying to scare us? ‘Cause it’s working. You’ve been pretty skittish lately when we’re out… Mica sez: I just wish I could hear them coming, ya know? It’s kind of freaky to be walkin’ along, minding my own business,…
