    Default Go get your bone, Murphy

    This is a regular morning routine that I wanted to get on video. I eat my breakfast on the couch while watching TV. Murphy always wants to cuddle with me on the couch, and he always has to have his favourite NylaBone, which, at this point in the day is usually on the bed where he left it. It seems like he often has trouble finding the bone until I remind him where it is.

    That is so sweet. And I loved the quick glimpse of Sparky, too. He's doing well now?

    If, by chance, Murphy left his bone in a different place would he know what you meant if you said "it's in the kitchen"? Just curious. He's such a smart boy that I'm sure he could learn it if needed.

    They do love their routines, don't they, and they won't let you forget them either. Love your boys!

    Sparky is doing great. I don't think his injuries were nearly as bad as the x-rays suggested. You can see in the video that his tail still doesn't have the life that it used to. He does carry it over his back, but it doesn't have the same tight curl that it should, so there is likely some nerve damage there. Otherwise he is exactly his old self.

    I have told Murphy his bone is in other rooms when he's left it somewhere other than the bed. He generally finds it eventually, but I don't think he's really understanding the difference between "on the bed" and "in the bathroom" or whatever.

    Your boys look great. You've done well at not giving in to the brown-eyed beggars.
