Meet Murdoch

February 18, 2011

This is Murdoch. We just adopted him from a shelter today. He left behind 5 other littermates. We wanted to take them all. They were so well behaved for 10 week-old puppies.

Murdoch is a Border collie mix. I think he’s mixed with the flying dog breed. Of course there is such a breed. See the evidence in the picture below.

So far, Murdoch is slightly shy but still inquisitive. He whined in the car a bit, but when he found his place between the kids’ car seats, he seemed right at home. He slept for most of the ride home.

So far, he seems to be photogenic, although his eyes seem to show his uneasiness in a new home. The only home he ever knew was the shelter.

It turns out that he really likes raw-hides. But, what dog doesn’t?

I’m sure you’ll see more of Murdoch in future posts. We are so happy to finally have a pup again. Our house seems complete now.
