Imagine having a dog who chases her tail in circles, or who loves to eat bubbles. Imagine a dog who spazzes out when you blow on her face or pushes your head off your pillow only to replace it with hers. Imagine having Murphy, my family’s loving, seven year-old golden retriever.When I found out we were getting a male puppy, I immediatley knew his name would be Murphy. Nobody wanted to fight with me, so we agreed, our puppy’s name would be Murphy. My mom called a lot of breeders until she found the perfect one. We were second on the list for a male dog. It was weeks before we were scheduled to pick him up when the breeder called us. The puppy we were supposed to get died, so instead of waiting for another bunch of puppies, we took home a female, still naming her Murphy.My parents aren’t sure where I came up with the name Murphy because i was so little. They think I heard them talking about Murphy’s, a resturant in Seattle were they met. My brother believes I came up with the name from Seargent Murphy, a police officer dog in a toddler show. To tell you the truth, I really do not know where Murphy came from. Right now, Murphy is a seven year-old naughty and nice dog. Murphy is naughty when she digs holes in our backyard (which is often), refuses to listen, and pulls during walks. She also whines a lot, pushes your head off your pillow only to replace it with hers, and hovers around you when she wants something. A lot of times. Murphy can be a huge nuissence, but at the same time, she is the sweetest thing. Murphy is always there when I need her. She comforts everyone in order to make you feel better. At times, Murphy is spicey, but she is usually as sweet as sugar.Some of the most hilarious things she does is eat bubbles, chases her tail in circles, and traps squirrels in trees! Every time my brothers and I blow bubbles, she jumps up and pops them with her mouth. After, Murphy licks her lips slurping up every last soap sud onto her tounge! It’s really funny to watch. Murphy also chases her tail around and around in circles. She bites it and growls! We make many jokes about this like saying her tail is a giant french fry! Another funny thing my dog does is trap squirrels in trees! She chases up the trunk then sits at the bottom staring up at the helpless animal. These are three out of a million hilarious events Murphy does!As you can see, Murphy is the best dog I could ever ask for. She is nice and naughty, funny and annoying. even though Murphy has a lot of weird quirks, I wouldn’t trade her for anything because she is my best friend!
