The Snow, Murphy and Me
The days have been cold and windy, but those are the types of days Murphy loves best. So, being the good doggy-parents we are, we took him for his favorite walk. We trudged through snow and ice at the back of our housing addition. He ran ahead and sniffed and pawed as he enjoyed the white stuff. We were bundled up so much it was hard to get the camera out of my pocket to take a picture. As we got to the end of the mile walk, he began to slow down and walk behind us. We would walk for a while and then turn around to be sure he was still there. It can't be too cold for this old boy. He loves rolling in the snow and comes in looking like an ice dog. We rub him off with towels and let him loose to shake the final bits of snow from his heavy coat. This is the part of winter I love...taking Murphy for long, snowy walks!
