Well I hate to say this but I actually done my nut today with Murphy.
He was at fault but so were our 2 grandies, both girls.
Well Murphy has got toys to play with inside, but decided as all young ones do that the other ones are better.
I was on my own with the gorls and this does take a lot out of me.
And to see him with the toys in his mouth just was the ticket to push me.
I told him off real bad and while I was doing it I began to think.
Why is he in trouble when the girls are the ones leaving these thing's on the floor.
So I told them that this was the last time he was going to be in trouble for that and it was now them who have to pick up thier toys.
And after that things went way smoother and I think Murphy understood cause I told him he was not going to be in trouble for that again.
Gee I was so mad at myself for doing this but when I have got heaps of back pain and no one else at home to help things do get smudged. And the thinking leaves for a while. But I will never tell him off like that again and this is a promise.
In the end Murphy was getting patted by the youngest one who is a little scared of dogs in general, so I think things may be a lot better now.
