I didn’t take on last week’s challenge – to include the words: I blamed it on the dog.What do I know about dogs? I thought. Yet this week….

The challenge is to include:

…Murray was just about to serve for the Championship when…

Championship Point

Murray, the Scottish Terrier, and Federer, the Swiss Greyhound, were arguing again.

“I’m small and can retrieve things from small places.” Murray stuck his chin up in the air, although it was still well below Federer’s eye level.

“I can run faster and fetch things more quickly.” Federer smirked at Murray from his great height.

They agreed to hold a contest to determine, once and for all, which of them was better able to serve their master.

At the final test, they were still neck-and-neck. Clutching the slipper between his jaws, Murray was just about to serve for the championship when the heavens opened and rain stopped play.
