My Big Furbaby and DT Secret Crafter Saturday #76

Morning peeps. Gosh, we have a lovely sunny day this morning!  Didn't feel too bad temperature wise either when I went out to check the fence!  We have quite a large garden and the dogs have direct access from the house to a good part of it.   However, Murphy has decided he's not happy with this arrangement and has broken one of the sections AGAIN so he can get into ALL the garden.  Pete will not be happy when I tell him LOL!

Thing is Murphy then forgets how he got out and so barks to wake yer up and come and let him in, am sure he has doggie dementia hahaha!!
Seeing as I was then wide awake at 4 o'clock this morning, I thought I'd make a start on todays post.  He LOVES the camera and having his pic taken so whilst  was trying to photograph the card - Murphy was growling, grumping, giving me his paw and generally trying to push his way in front of the lens lol!  Did get some shots of him so thought I'd blog him and keep him sweet - maybe he'll leave the fence alone til Pete gets home next week and can fix it!
This is Murphy getting impatient for his pic..................

Then he immediately went stupid with excitement, jumping about on the spot and madly wagging his tail.....

before finally composing himself and striking a pose.....................

He always looks away from the camera slightly and gives me his best side - have you EVER seen such a big poser ROFL! You can also see from the top of his head that he's been having fun rolling in some mud - little monster!


Ok onto todays card.  Big thankyou to everyone who joined in Helen's challenge last week over at the Secret Crafter, we all really enjoyed having a nosy at your creations.  This week my lovely teamie Jane has set a fabulous challenge -
