Upping the cuteness factor
The littlest GEB "trainer" and his charge .... Andrew takes very seriously the idea of making Murphy mind. It's cute to watch. (And like any older sibling, he also is happy to rat Murphy out if the pup is doing something while my back is turned...)
Several folks have asked "What about Andrew?" in reference to the prospect of Murphy leaving us. (Usually in a tone that suggests we're ripping the boy's heart out.) It's more complicated than that. More on the boy/dog dynamic in an upcoming post, but for now, they both need to be fed.
