A tale of two street pups

While our neighbors went on a trip back to the States over Christmas, we watched their street pup, Tucker, for three weeks.  The first few days were a real struggle as Murphy and Tucker figured out who was boss (they were both shocked to learn it was the humans…).  But they fell into a groove after we established some game rules and provided some pretty comical moments.

We realized during this visit that our dog, Murphy (the small black dog), is quite a spoiled brat.  We would hate the human form of him, but as a pup, he’s the best!  He doesn’t share well, is a terrible host, and teases his friends.

Here’s a few of my favorite moments from Tucker’s stay at our house.

Murphy stole Tucker's bone.  Tucker decided to pout rather than kick Murphy's butt to get it back.

The day Tucker's family got home, Murphy piled all of his toys by the door and stood watch, just in case Tucker walked by.
