My “brother from another mother”


Hey, gang,

The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and cool, and my nemeses the geese have taken wing for warmer climes. Must be autumn.

I thought I’d take this time to tell you a little bit about my “little brother,” Oliver Murphy. He’s older than I am, and, although he’s a lot shorter and lighter, he’s still kinda the one in charge. (don’t tell him I said that, though!)

Oliver is a Dachshund, another breed (like Doberman!) that began in Germany. Dachshunds are fearless for their size – and they’d have to be! The name Dachshund means Badger Hound in German, and have you ever heard of a friendly badger?!

Oliver (sometimes called “The Murph”)  usually hangs out at home with our “mom,” but occasionally he comes to work, too.  I like having him around, although I like to play it cool and pretend like he isn’t there…. lol!  When he is here, he likes to curl up in my friend Kit’s chair:

Keeping warm in the autumn cool!

Stop by to see us – maybe you’ll get to meet The Murph!
