G’Day, Murphy here, the Wagging World News Hound from Down Under.
I’m a Collie, crossed with Aussie Cattle Dog and a stroke of Kelpie. My parents were drifters from the wrong side of the tracks (AKA the Central Coast of NSW) and I ended up mixing with the wrong crowd. I did a spot of plea bargaining (have you seen my eyes?) and narrowly escaped death row. I tend to favour the shady side of life so expect me to dig the dirt – and maybe roll in it a bit too.
These days, I’m grey around the chops, and I prefer more of an (under the) desk job with a snooze in the afternoon. I still take my exercise seriously and spend at least two hours a day swimming, running or weight training (sticks can be heavy). I also protect my humans from the multitude of birds that like to try and take over our veranda daily!
I’m also CEO of a creative content agency ‘Murphy and Friends’, with staff to run around after me. I keep them on their toes with a quick nip if they go near my fridge or forget to bring me my cheese.
Anyway, I’m off to steal another prawn from the Barbee. See you around.
