Murphy Monday


Here's the Murphster...in his favorite location, sniffing after mice and other creatures out in the farm fields around us.

Lately, Murphy's been getting carried away with his herding instincts--barking whenever the phone rings, until I go answer it--problem is, he also tries to nip at my heels on the way to the phone. Any ideas for breaking him of these bad habits? I plan to check out "The Dog Whisperer" book for additional insights.

Why do I feel as if I'm raising a toddler all over again??

My dog, Australian Cattle Dog, nipped at heels when we first got her, too. loud shouts of "NO!" largely put an end to it. I know,it seems to simple to be true.

This is a gorgeous photo of Murphy.The colors, the shadows, it all looks beautiful. This is one for a frame.

What beautiful lighting for this photo!

I'm not a dog-savvy person, so I'm just here to comment on the photo. :)
