yesterday was murray's 13th birthday...can i get a "woot woot!"  i'm sure by now you're all tired of my murray stories but if you'll permit me i'd just like to reiterate that he hurts my heart every day.  if you're not tired yet you can read this or this or this...or you could just do a "murray" search over there to the right (sadly i've done it on my own blog several times - just to see what i've said about murray).  ...

i work out most mornings on an elliptical machine.  i’m only imparting this information because it’s pertinent to this post, otherwise i would keep my workout schedule to myself and let you think i come about my zaftig figure naturally. phineus is my consummate workout partner, however, the only physical activity he does is the short run it takes for him to get to the room when he realizes working out is happening.  it seems like he thinks if he’s in the room while...

so the dogs and i are enjoying a lazy, chilly saturday at home and carly can’t find a seat on the couch.  i happen to be sitting on her favorite chair with my computer (and wilson) so she’s kind of out of luck.  the video below is her reaction to the predicament.  i should state that 93.75% of our dogs inherently know not to get on tables…the other 6.25% is carly and her very soft brain.  normally she would be told to get down but i figured i’d see...
