July 4, 1995-January 17, 2008
We will miss you old guy!
Murphy woke up this morning with the usual arthritis in his bones, ate his breakfast and went outside to do what he always does in the morning. After awhile I went looking for him and found him in our woods. To make a long story short he suffered from a stroke this AM and then proceeded to have more while at the vet's. We are happy that we were all there to say
good-bye. He still recognized us at the end and gave us a tail wag for a send off.
He will hold a special place in all of our hearts.

Stopping by to say hello (from Leslie's site) and also to say how sorry I am to read about your dog.

Jane said...

Thanks everyone. All are doing okay. The boys are keeping busy and asking a lot of questions. He was a huge part of our family so it's pretty weird not to have him around.

Oh, Jane... just got your comment about Logan on my blog, and came right over. I am SO, SO sorry. He is such a beautiful boy -- and I can only imagine how much love and joy he brought into your lives. I think that what they say is so true... the joy of having them is worth the pain of losing them. I am sure that Logan will be right at the entryway of that big dog park in Heaven, just waiting to welcome Murphy to a place where he can run pain free and look down with great love on all of you. My heart goes out to you and your family.
