Murphy likes the fact that I am spending lots of time lying around as he can join me. Sometimes he gets a bit mopy that I haven’t moved for a few hours, but most the time he tells me to stop moving.
I bought him a new collar just before going into hospital. He does not like the plastic collars you can buy at a petstore, so I get him collars from Moon Valley Collars as they make them in cotton. They wear well so he only needs a new one about every two years.
