| But he will never be forgotten.My murphy left our world today and I am heart broken. He will be my friend always and forever. My heart is breaking and I am so very sad that we were not able to help my big red boy, he was truly a gentle soul that loved everyone he met.
I love you big guy and your sweet gentle sprit will always be with me, always and forever.

| Run Free and shine your love down upon us from the stars
Slide on the rainbows and jump between clouds......

| Another star shining in the sky tonight. I am sorry for your loss of Murphy. I am sure he is running and playing with all the other doggies and Lincoln and our Zues and Annie.
Run free sweetie.

| "From Friend to Friend" by Karen Clouston
You’re giving me a special gift,
So sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days,
Your courage makes me proud.
But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.
So looking deep into your eyes,
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic, that will
Once more make me whole.
The strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.
That strength is why I've followed you,
And chose you as my friend,
And why I've loved you all these years...
My partner 'til the end.
Please, understand just what this gift,
You're giving, means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost,
And all my dignity.
You take a stand on my behalf,
For that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right,
For I believe it too.
So one last time, I breathe your scent,
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within you,
To now grant me this appeal.
Cut the leash that holds me here,
Dear friend, and let me run,
Once more a strong and steady dog,
My pain and struggle done.
And don't despair my passing,
For I won't be far away,
Forever here, within your heart,
And memory I'll stay.
I'll be there watching over you,
Your ever faithful friend,
And in your memories I'll run,
...a young dog once again.
Murphy is now running on winged feet at The Bridge until you meet again

| Thank you for your kind thoughts and thank you Beryl for that endearing poem. Murphy will truly be missed by everyone who knew him. It was a tough night last night and I believe Henry is missing him very much, I just can not believe he is gone, I look around and expect to see him on the sofa or in his bed next to mine. I wanted to post this picture because it shows just how sweet my big boy was. My grandaughter had gotten a little doctor kit and decided to give Murphy a checkup and he was glad to help out. He was wonderful with little children and seemed to understand that being gentle was important. I really miss him.
