How To Spell Trouble
I'm not an advocate of anyone getting a dog for their kids. Getting a pet is and should be a family decision that everyone agrees on. Murphy is our dog (mine and Jim's) - we're hopeful that he and Bennett will become friends but we did not get Murphy for Bennett.
Fortunately, it seems that our two babies have fallen in love. Murphy follows Bennett everywhere and Bennett's face lights up when he sees the puppy. However, I think their friendship is going to cause some problems as the two of them seem to get each other in trouble a number of times throughout the day. If Murphy wants into the bathroom, Bennett will gladly open the door for him. If Bennett starts pulling toys out of the toybox, Murphy will quickly jump in to help.
This morning, Bennett decided to share his pacifier with Murphy. This resulted in a very early morning race through our house. It was very amusing to watch a rather large man chase a rather small puppy - both of them at top speed. Jim eventually caught him but it took a while. Bennett and I agreed that it was probably one of the funniest things we've ever seen.
