I have had the good fortune to meet a new friend, Murphy. Sadly, Murphy lives many hours away, but his people are Woman’s cousin and her boyfriend, so I am certain that our paths will cross again.
Murphy and I had much in common, in particular our passion for ball chasing and catching, as well as for good, old-fashioned running.
Murphy is quite young, at nearly a year old. I was impressed by the way his paws seemed barely to touch the ground as he ran and pranced gracefully in play.
I quite enjoyed meeting Murphy, who seemed a sensible and skillful dog whose company I look forward to enjoying again. I think I’ll give up tennis, though. The pavement of the court was a bit rough on my pads.
