These Paws Are Made For Walking

Before we get to our post, we wanted to pay tribute to the life of our furiend Benny who lost his battle to liver cancer yesterday.  He Fought Like A Frenchie and all of Blogville had his back.  We will miss him a lot and our prayers go out to his mom and sister Lily.  Leave them a message HERE.


 We went for a 5 mile walkie on Tuesday. You might think we've been doing extra walkies lately and you would be right.  Mom says we need to walk for 2 reasons.  First of all it is beautiful weather and mom says we are on "borrowed time".  I don't know what that means.  And secondly, mom is on ANOTHER diet.

So we don't mind the walkies at all.  We usually get to put our paws in the river so there are benefits.  We also like the smells.  And of course Stanley is still practicing lifting his leg to mark.  He is still figuring it out.

And you know mom always poses us for a Doodle Brothers photo.  

This time I made mom post for a Doodle mom and son photo.

Murphy & Stanley


  1. Whatever the reason Doods extra walking is always a good thing

  2. Hi Murphy & Stanley,
    Oh how I love your Autumn walks, you really look great, your furrs stand out in front of the colourful leaves, it really is beautiful with you, I love seeing your smiling faces, the Doodle Brothers photos are wonderful you both are great models and even while mid-walk you manage to strike a pose!
    Your tribute to our friend Benny is beautiful, I miss him already!
    Benny was such an inspiration, he was so brave and a real Hero!
    Prayerss and love for his family at this very sad time!
    This really has been a very sad week in Blogville.

  4. Epic win with the extra walks. Have a fabulous Friday.

    PS Benny will be greatly missed. We are very sad for his family.

  5. Walk while the weather is gorgeous! Of course, we also like walking in snow storms, too... In fact, we'll take any excuse for walkies! Our Mom is taking another long weekend, so we're hoping that means long walkies!

  16. Hi there, My heart is hurting for Benny's family-prayers going up for them. Love your pictures today-you and Mom look like the perfect match together. So why in the world is your mom going on a diet, and what type of diet is she on? I've got to cut back because we aren't bike riding now; I've put on a couple
    of pounds and don't want it to continue. I hope you have a furtastic weekend; make sure to love up on your mom and dad in case they are sad about Benny.

  17. Hi Stanley and Murphy,

    Your fall fotos are just beOOtiful! We will miss our furiend Benny too, what a sad week it has been in Blogville, so much loss.

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae and Max

  18. Those are all great pictures. Good thing you mom has a tight grip on you in that last photo. We want to know how many takes it took to get your mom looking at the camera properly?

    Millie & Walter

  19. I love love love the photo of you and your mom! The fall colors there are spectacular right now. And, I guess there are benefits to mom being on a diet - more walkies for you!

  20. Millie and Walter's comment made my mom LOL! I agree....we should get to see the outtakes! 5 miles?????? OMD! Can you imagine how many steps that would be for my short little legs? Waaaay more than 87! I think Stanley would have to give me a doggie back ride.

  21. Wow, your leave are changing pretty colours. We forget that it is Autumn where you are.

  22. Oh! So you are the infamous doodle mom. Nice meeting you, by the way. Well, I think walkies are great. The farther they are, the more ground we cover.


Don't just sniff around, leave your mark with a comment so we know you've stopped by. Wags!!
