My word for 2021 is: Relaxed
I chose relaxed for my word because I'm over being busy (and being asked if I have a busy day planned, it seems as if it is a competition to be busy)
and I think that the way the world is at the moment with COVID-19 it is
important to be relaxed as things can change so
the fabric I used for the letters
Having Murphy in our lives has changed our daily rhythm, I tend to do household stuff while he is asleep so I have very much enjoyed spending an hour or so in my work room while he has been asleep.
Our original intention was to show him, but the breeder didn't think he was going to be show-worthy as only one testicle had dropped, (it has since dropped) and dogs need two testicles to enter a conformation show. Initially we were disappointed but are now quite happy that we won't be showing him as we have more time to enjoy him.
He had his first bath last weekend, he was quite happy to start with but ended up looking like a drowned rat and not so happy. He is the ideal size to be washed in the laundry tub although I now wish we had installed a tap with a pull out spray as it would have been perfect for rinsing him off.
Murphy has no problems at all with being relaxed and for such a small dog he does take up quite a bit of room on the couch.
