Why you don't want a short dog with long hair
Notice the difference between the tall dog with short hair and the short dog with long hair.
Doesn't seem to bother her too much, though.
So Murphy and I were strolling along, when suddenly she pulled me over and dragged my lifeless body to your front door. We knocked and all I saw was Ray's sad face staring back at me. " Sorry Murphy, nobody is here!" I told her. Murphy whined. She pulled me over to the the gate. "Murphy you will just have to play by yourself back there!" I said. A lightbulb went off over my head, "There's a dog door!!!"Being clever, I let Murphy into the backyard. I walked over to the dog door and hollered at Ray. Murphy slipped right through my legs and into the house..."Craaaaap!" Realizing that I didn't have my phone or your house keys, I started to dance in front of the sliding doors to convince them that it was more fun outside. Finally, they stopped playing and stared at me. I ran over to the dog door and shouted to Murphy. " Come hereeeeee Murphy!!!!" She ran right out the door. Ray's head stopped dead in front of it. I called, "Come on Ray! You can do it!"I pulled back the plastic; Ray ran out.After about 20 minutes, I said, "We gotta go Murph before we get caught!" I put her on her leash and I called Ray over to get him through the door. He stopped inches from where I could reach him. It's like he knew I was going to grab him and push him inside. He looked at me like " I'm not done with her yet!!!" and then ran away. " Okay, fine!" I said. I let Murphy back off the leash ..... They continued to pay for about 15 minutes. Then Murphy came over and I said " Okay, let's go."We walked over to the gate and I put her collar on. Ray of course, thinking we were leaving, ran over to me and I grabbed him! We walked over to the door, which he told me he'd rather die than go through, and with two hands on his butt, I pusssshhheeeddd him through the door. Quickly we ran to the front door and knocked so Ray wouldn't run back into the yard.... Whew! The perfect escape.
