Murray’s Latest Doggy Days

Posted on

Murray (my dog) has taken on a new hobby, whimpering. He usually is quiet (for the most part) and sweet, but lately he has been whimpering a lot.

When my dad got home from work yesterday he whimpered. Murray sat at the door and whimpered away. After waiting at the door for a few minutes the whimpering became loud barks. Imagine doing your homework with a dog whimpering and barking frequently. Let me tell you, it isn’t very fun.

Murray has also started to howl. Each howl is mixed into a few barks. This is how my dog sounds when he hears something outside: arf arf arf arf arf arooooooooooo arf arf arf. There are plenty of people (and dogs) walking in our neighborhood so we hear that bark howl combination quite often.

Now I know that I have been complaining this whole post but Murray really is an awesome pup. Murray is a loud, sweet, and happy puppy. Although I don’t really like his new “hobbies” I love almost everything else about him.

Here is picture I took of Murray:


My Saturday

Posted on

Yesterday was an insane day for me. My Saturday was pack jammed with activities. My day started off with me waking up at 6:00am. 6:00am! I very rarely wake up that early on the weekends. There was a reason for waking up though. I woke up at 6:00am to run a 5k.

There was an hour drive to get to the 5k but it was worth it I ended up in first place for my age bracket and I got a cool trophy. The free running foods and cookies were a bonus along with the free stuff from each sponsor of the race. That was a fun race but that was only the start of my day.

After the race we got home and went out to breakfast. When breakfast was over we went home and then I had to change for my soccer game. This soccer game in particular was an hour and thirty minutes away.

Then, after I played soccer and had gotten back home I needed to shower, change, eat dinner, and brush my teeth and get in the car to go to my friend’s house. The reason I was going to my friends house was because my mom and dad were going to some October Fest and my brother was going to Home Coming. I really didn’t want to spent 7:00pm to 11:00pm alone so I went to my friend’s house. Anyways, I had tons of fun with my friend and then my parents came to pick me up.

As you can imagine, I was EXTREMELY tired. When I got home I brushed my teeth and flopped into bed. So that was it. That was my super insanely pack jammed day. I really hope my Saturday isn’t as busy next weekend.
