Welcome to Murphy's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Murphy
Murphy came to us after losing two other Greyhounds. He was "fluffy". He enjoyed being outdoors and would lay in the grass and not want to come back in the house. Murphy had to learn to do steps learned how to get on the sofas and beds. His best teacher was our older dog, April. She taught him everything he learned after coming off the track. One of his favorite places to sleep was on the bed. We had to use treats to get him to sleep in a position so that there was room for us to sleep. When April passed we got another Greyhound, ( Avery ). Murphy soon became in charge. He and Avery became buddies, loving to go for walks and car rides. One evening when we let the dogs outside to take care of business, they ran and played bumping into each other. Murphy collapsed and it was discovered that he had dislocated his hip. He was placed in hobbles for a week to keep the hip in alignment. It did not keep the hip in alignment so it was suggested that he have surgery. He was hospitalized awaiting the surgery. The surgery was scheduled for a Monday but Murphy passed over the bridge the evening before. Goodbye my special fluffy buddy, Murphy. I will miss you and still do. It has been almost a year since you are gone and there is not a day that goes by that we don't think about you. Avery looked for you every day for a few weeks too.
