FC: The Long Brown Joy
1: Hello! My name is Murphy Sue. I am 14 years old! I live with my Mom and Dad and brother. I also have another mother that I go to see every Thursday. I lived with her for ten years until she couldn't care for me any longer. So really I have two families that love me very much! Come see what I do from day to day!
2: This is me in my new sweater. It has an owl on it! Momma says I look good in browns and oranges. She also says that if you look up the word precious in the dictionary you will find a picture of me!
3: Although I don't really mind wearing my sweater, I can manage to get out of it if I want to. I've gotten stuck with my front paw hanging out of the neck of it before though. This proved to be very uncomfortable.
4: Sleeping in my nest is my favorite thing to do! This is a new nest that my Granddaddy bought me. This is the first time I tried it out. It was great! I snoozed away for hours!
5: When my Gramy was alive, and I was younger, I would jump into her chair and take a nap. I would look so comfy and content that she couldn't bring herself to move me! | Gramy waiting on me to wake up.
6: All days are good days but some days are just flat grand! This was one of'em! Gram let me lick the Jet Puff jar! | I licked so hard that she had to hold the jar between her feet! | This jar took some time to clean out. I was determined to do a good job of it!
7: It can get a wee bit messy too. | I licked so long and hard that I sprained my tongue! | There was one draw back - my face was so sticky that Gram had to wash it! Nobody could kiss me 'cause I was so sticky! (I've since vowed never to take a bath again - even if it is a "wash rag bath!")
8: Work that hard often brings on a nap!
9: What a shock it was to everyone when I went through my "pink" phase! I'm a tomboy like both of my mothers but all of a sudden I began to feel quite girly. I went from my blue blankie to three pink ones! It was shocking!
10: If there's one thing I hate it's when they make me go outside. What's up with that? I lost my sense of adventure years ago. I don't like to get too far from my kitchen or my nest. I'd just rather be a wee bit portly!
11: I'm goin' home.
12: All that work brings on a nap!
13: Momma says that I am the finest wennie dog every born and they should stop the production of them because all others fail in comparison to me.
14: Another grand day! Gram made cookies and let me lick the bowl. | She leaned it against the door frame because the bottom was so deep that it was making me cough when I tried to lick it!
15: lick...lick...lick | I really try to do a good job so they don't have to wash it and can just put it straight back in the cupboard. But this brought on...
16: Yet another nap! | My Daddy
17: Napping is way more fun with a friend. This is me and my Dad on the left. He travels overseas a lot so he has jet lag. This works in my favor 'cause then he sleeps during the day with me! Gramy always loved to snuggle in the afternoons. | My Gramy
18: I love Christmas! There is lots of cooking going on and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen - my favorite room. But there's also presents under the tree!!!! Yipeee!!
19: Momma caught me snoopin' around. | I wish I could tell you that this was Christmas day but it wasn't. | Sometimes when I think I'm alone (especially if they all get in the car and leave) I open all the presents! This can take awhile but I get it done! Now they put'em all on the table so I can't get to'em.
20: Opening that many presents can be exhausting. Remember I'm 14. That brought on a nap!
21: This is my original mother. She got sick and now she can't care for me. She asked my babysitter to keep me. That's my new mother. Now I have two mothers! Lucky me!
22: bently | sadie | honey | I'm not really fond of other dogs.....but these are my "friends" if you want to call'em that. I mostly just stand and scream in their faces when they come over. | I've had sleepovers with Honey. Sometimes days at a time when her family disappears on her. She cries a lot when they're gone. | me & momma
23: Fudge - I know her from Flickr. | What a bone! | Benny - From Flickr | How'd that kitty get in here?! | I'm a only child. I like it that way. I couldn't handle sharing my nest, food and toys with someone. Once Honey played with my toys and they all smell like "dog" now. Yuck. I need new ones...
24: This is me at my birthday party! Momma made me a strawberry cake with vanilla icing and pink sprinkles! I do love pink!
25: I really wanted a green monkey and a squeaky duck. | I'd ripped the wing off my last duck. LOOK! I got them both!!! A squeaky duck and a green monkey!
26: So this is what I do most days around the house. Drop on by when you can and we'll snuggle!
