Murphy is wonderful. We found out today that he likes to swim. At first he was tentative but he found another dog he really liked and she was swimming. In order for him to follow her he had to. He seemed to like it. He is still obsessed with our chickens so he can only go out of the fence when they are not outside. He is doing better with the pulling on our walk. My husband found that he doesn't pull as bad on a regular collar. He still pulls a bit for me. He enjoys his long 3 mile walk/run. I have taken him to Boston Store twice and he is a hit with everyone. He is very friendly and lets them pet him. He does like to sleep with us....he starts in the bed and gets down sometime in the night. In the morning he is usually back in the bed. He is on a grain free diet and has Zyrtec and Thyroxine everyday. Every other day or three days he gets a small dose of prednisone.
