Today on our walk, Murphy discovered the snow outside of the hockey rink near our house. He jumped on it, he played in it, and he ate quite a bit of it. I think Murphy likes snow. We haven't had much of it this year, so it'll be interesting to see what he does with it if we get a big snowstorm.
It's not always easy to get a good picture of a black dog. Now we have 2 of them! Black dogs do photograph well against the light background of snow though. So that's how I have chosen to interpret this week's theme: the contrast of dark against light.
On another note off the subject of the assignment, Murphy is becoming quite an imp. He is now stealing silverware from the dishwasher, and tries to bring random things out through our electronic dog door to play with in the pool area. Today I caught him taking one of those barbeque brushes with him (stolen from the dishwasher), and earlier this week he actually tried to drag a mop with him (stolen from the pantry). We are learning to close doors and to pick up anything we don't want him to spirit away.
It's a lot of fun having a puppy in the house!
