"The Bichon Frise is a small dog breed, sturdy, lively, with an air of dignity and intelligence...It has a cheerful attitude, friendly, outgoing, and an affectionate nature which has made it a favorite companion and family dog." - DogBiz
Born October 12, 2008, Murf is our resident bichon frise (who came into my life through the dating/marriage compact circa 2012.) Spirited, affectionate, and take-no-guff, Murf mostly enjoys food, licking, sleep, food, bones from the butcher, licking, sleep, and food.
Murf contracted glaucoma in one eye in 2013 and the other in 2015, and is now completely blind. To reduce the chances of continued bouts of migraine-like pain, we had both of his eyes eviscerated after he lost his sight. This doesn't seem to have interfered with his joie-de-vivre or appetite much at all, and he still gets around our apartment just as well as before.
