    Re: Murphy's gone

    We are so sorry for your loss. It's been two years, and my heart still aches for my little Maggie...

    God Wanted a Dog...

    A dog that loved her people completely.

    A dog that would look Him straight in the eye.

    A dog with a sense of humor, and the knowledge of when to use it.

    A friend to everyone, two or four-legged.

    An easy-going dog, not moody or melancholy, and never mean-spirited.

    A dog with a waggy tail, and bright shiny eyes.

    A dog who knows what He's thinking, sometimes before He even knows.

    A dog who gives hugs, and loves laps.

    A dog who understands the importance of a good nap.

    One who's always ready for a walk, or a ride.

    A dog who's strong-willed and independent,
    and lets Him know it once in while.

    One who loves water, and boating, and just being outside.

    A dog who likes to stand facing the wind, ears blowing back along her head.

    One who could show her love in every sideways glance.

    God wanted our Maggie, and she's with Him now.
    She romps in Heaven's soft grass, the
    warm sunshine on her back.
    And lies at His side in the afternoon, and dreams

    I am sorry for your loss. We have a 15 year old Chocolate Lab. I almost don't want to come home at night for fear of what I might find. The good memories will see you through.

    Thank you all for your kind words. She was a sweet dog and we will miss her greatly. Here is a picture from Lonz Winery at Put-in-Bay.

    Re: Murphy's gone


    I remember bringing you home. You were so small and cuddly with your tiny paws and soft fur. You bounced around the room with eyes flashing and ears flopping. Once in a while, you'd let out a little yelp just to let me know this was your territory.

    Making a mess of the house and chewing on everything in sight became a passion and when I scolded you, you just put your head down and looked up at me with those innocent eyes as if to say: "I'm sorry, but I'll do it again as soon as you're not watching."

    As you got older, you protected me by looking out the window and barking at everyone who walked by. When I had a tough day at work, you would be waiting for me with your tail wagging just to say, "Welcome home. I missed you." You never had a bad day and I could always count on you to be there for me.

    When I sat down to read the paper and watch TV, you would hop on my lap looking for attention. You never asked for anything more than to have me pat your head so you could go to sleep with your head over my leg.

    As you got older, you moved around more slowly. Then one day, old age finally took its toll, and you couldn't stand on those wobbly legs anymore. I knelt down and patted you lying there, trying to make you young again. You just looked up at me as if to say you were old and tired and that after all these years of not asking for anything, you had to ask me to do one last favor.

    With tears in my eyes, I drove you one last time to the vet. One last time you were lying next to me. For some strange reason you were able to stand up in the animal hospital - perhaps it was your sense of pride.

    As the vet led you away, you stopped for an instant, turned your head and looked at me as if to say: "Thank you for taking care of me."

    I thought, "No - thank YOU for taking care of ME."

    Re: Murphy's gone

    My GF had a Yorkie for over 19 years!! Great dogs.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think you have to be a pet owner to really appreciate the level sadness when we finally lose them. There's nothing like the love, devotion and companionship of a dog. My Sheltie is over 13 now, just diagnosed with bladder cancer and undergoing treatment. The prognosis is fairly good, for now. I hate the thought of losing him.

    Sorry to hear about Murphy, you have some great picts there and apparently some good years with her to remember.

    Re: Murphy's gone

    I personally like animals better than most people, they are much more honest.
    I am very sorry for your loss, I know what you are going through.

    "RLW", that was one of the most incredible things I've ever read. Thank you.
