Someone got a name for Christmas

Any dog can get squeaky toys and rawhide chews from Santa. But this one...he wanted a name. So henceforth, the Dog Who Resisted Being Named shall now be known as: Audie Murphy, or "Murphy" for short.

Like his distinguished namesake, he's intelligent and resourceful, but also calm, cool and quiet. He stands tall and responds decisively when challenged, but he also has a touch of roguishness about him at times that only adds to his charm. Even though he started out with a bad hand early in life, he's clearly a diamond in the rough that I expect great things from.


So Murphy it is.

  2. It will be interesting to see how well Murphy develops over the next few years, as he benefits from a stable environment and develops bonds that only time can cement.

    Good luck to you both.

  10. "Murphy" was a good cop in his rebirth as Robocop.

    Tell him he's wearing a proud name.
