The white dog is Murphy. Our intern says, "Murphy is the greatest dog that ever lived! Period!" Murphy is about 3 years old and, since he has better bathroom habits, he is allowed to go visiting. Murphy enjoys visiting. He is a Yorkie Maltese mix.
Hybrid dogs are becoming the latest, greatest fad with people paying high prices for Labradoodles (Labrador Retriever/Poodle), Cockapoos (Cocker Spaniel/Poodle), Pugles (Pug/Beagle) and, of course, Malkies, like our friend Murphy. Purests are not sure why the hybrids are gaining such popularity, especially here in America. Could it be that we Americans just want what we want? Even when it comes to our dogs?
