Murphy The Timid

My friend Kelly's dog Murphy is a scruffy, shy lil' guy, and man oh man, does he make you WORK for his affection. It took him a few months to warm up to me despite my repeated attempts to let him know that I would not eat him, and now that he loves me, my world is complete.

I took these photos while we were at Kelly's getting our friend Shannan ready for a photo session. Murphy had already met me multiple times at this point, and I had pretty much just given up and started antagonizing him with my camera. Interestingly enough, once I took a bunch of photos of him, that's when he finally decided to chill out and be my friend...diva much? Maybe he just wanted to know he was the center of attention all along. 

Happy Tuesday!
