Murphy turns nine!

Happy 9th Birthday Murphy!!
Aww Murphy. My problem child, my bad dog - if I had known then what I know now I never would have come home with Murphy (or Teller for that matter) - but he's changed my life in so many ways and set into motion the wonderful things that have followed Where does the time go? Seems like only yesterday he was a naughty little puppy! Now he's blossomed into a naught big nine year old senior dog.

Murphy has been 'retired' from dog sports for a few years now, but he still takes great pleasure in finding new and exciting ways to push my buttons on a daily basis...You want me to eat that stuffed toy? No problem! How about I dig on the sofa again tonight? Perfect! Counter-surfing? Yeah, he's got that too. He drives me crazy sometimes and I hope he's around to push those buttons for many more years.

Inquiring minds would like to know how Murph celebrated his big day? He started the day with a bully stick and some extracurricular chewing on a knuckle bone while I unloaded, sorted and organized my raw food order. He got a couple of extra duck necks for supper and we all went for a 4 mile walk. All in all, not a bad day for a golden retriever.

The boys wait for their annual CERF/OFA eye exams!
Three passes!!
