River Dunce

Yesterday, because it was not raining here, we went down to the river.

Belle watched the boats.

Murphy joined them.

I found a bottle!

Throw it for me!

Throw it again!

MOAR!

My dog is an idiot.

But as you can tell here, people still love him.

A lady offers to hold Belle while I help Murphy out. I have no intention of going down on those slippery boards to grapple with him so I wait for him to just go to the side of the steps and climb out. (He did.) But before he's even out, the lady asks if she can pet him.

And I did give permission, and when he got out she went over to pet him. And true to form, he shook river water all over her and several other tourists who were sitting on the steps nearby.

That's my Murphy.

  1. I have a swimming dog. She won't shake off to soak you, as long as you keep a careful eye and a firm No! handy when she comes towards you dripping. Every single time.

  2. The last picture of Murphy before the video is so funny. I love seeing their doggie personalities.

  4. Why didn't Bell join him for a swim? Too much of a prima donna?

    1. She's never been a swimmer. I can get her in if I'm in but she's not happy.

  7. He did it simply to get YOUR ATTENTION. And you gave it, right?

    1. Nah, he did it because he likes to swim. The fetching part happened because I like to see him happy.
