While Spud and I traveled, Murphy was making himself right at home at my mother's place. This became evident when I got back and we sat down to the first family meal.
Brazen sucker, isn't he? A few seconds later, he actually put his chin on the table and got a rap on the snout with a spoon (from me) for his trouble.
And I wonder why every time I get a dog back to the Lair after having him up here for a bit, their begging activity is off the charts.
