Trying to Drive

First I have to say to all that asked, yeah, my lady lets me on the coffee table. I am one lucky sun of a gun, or she's just a bad dog owner, but I think it's the first one!

Anyhow, yesterday it was time to go to the dog park, I got put in the back of the truck, as usual, but I had some better plans. Now, listen,


I am a trained pain in the butt, danger loving, trouble causing pup, and this was performed in a parking lot with no other cars, and much preparation went into this trick. So once again,


(Serious note from Kathleen. We were just entering the parking lot for the dog park and my friend unbuckled Murph's seat belt. Murph then got up and started looking over my shoulder, my friend snapped a picture, we started laughing and kept driving in a slow circle around the empty parking lot and snapped the following pictures. Just wanted to make sure you knew we weren't driving around on the streets of Dallas with Mr. Murph doing all that because that would be very dangerous!)

Okay, now that all that legal mumbo jumbo is out of the way, here I go.

There we were driving along and I decided that this was my perfect chance to figure out how to drive. So, here is my lady driving along, do you see me?! Nope...

But let's look at it from another angle, Yup, THERE I AM!

My lady looks so worried, she takes this driving very, very seriously, but me, I think it's kind of fun.

That's better, smile for the camera.

Now look to the left and see if there are any cars over there. Let me get a closer look.

Now, exactly what are you doing with those pedals down there? And if I push on your arm, what exactly happens?

Let me try to see it close up.....What?! You can't see around me, why not!?

How about here, is that better, I mean this way I can see the pedals, the steering wheel and the other cars. This is a great spot to learn to drive.
Hmmm, maybe I will do down there and try out those pedals you push with your feet.

Here I come, pedals watch out, I am going to try to push you and figure out which one makes the car go and which one makes it stop.

This looks harder than I thought it would be. Maybe I had better give up on this idea of driving.... I think I'll just go to the dog park and run instead.

Legal mumbo jumbo aside... I think Kathleen is one lucky lady to have you in her life! You have so much personality and so much spunk!!! Those are great pics!!

Hi, Murphey.
I liked a lot your post. All those are great pictures of you and your mom. Better let her to drive you where you want to go!
Have a good night

murphey, i hope you don't cause accident. :) can't believe your lady was still smiling.

wet wet licks

Hey, Murph!

Was your mom doing that nervous little giggle while she was fake smiling with you behind the wheel?

My thought is, why bother? You already have a personal chauffeur, and look at all of the trouble Paris Hilton got into because she didn't use her driver.

Goob love to you, man!

Sparky said...

Goodness, Murphey! I'll bet you'd be a fantastic driver if you practiced more! Keep up the good work.

Woh Murphey. Good try there to learn to drive. Maybe you should get more doggies to help out (some at pedels, some at wheels) to drive the car

Toby said...

OMD Murphey, that looks like SO much fun!!! You are one super lucky dude that your Mom lets you drive!!! Although there were a few pictures were your Mom looks terrified! LOL!~

So when are you gonna be applying for your official drivers license??

Way to go Murph, totally takin' over. Those photos with you and your mom are so super cute. You lucky dog, my mom won't even let me sit in her lap when she drives. She probably would if she were driving in an empty parking lot too though.


Bella said...

very tricky Murphy - I like to supervise and give directions, but am happy to be chaufered - let the hoomans do the hard work i say !!

T-man said...

Murph, if you drive be sure to keep your paws firmly on the wheel. Maybe your lady can work the pedals and you can steer. (Of course my mom says it's dangerous for doggies to sit in Bummer!)
