Murphy loves his big sister. He cries when he can't find her and loves to snuggle on her when they are done playing. She puts up with him for the most part and actually loves playing with him, too. We just make sure she gets some personal space from time to time as a way of keeping the peace.
He also loves his daddy, who is teaching him to swim and retreive. He loves to snuggle up to us and prefers to sleep with us, although we don't really allow this. I don't know he wants to be near us, rather I think he prefers a soft bed to his crate with a towel. I know I would!
