Happy 12th Birthday at the Rainbow Bridge

Today would have been when we celebrated Murphy’s birthday. He was about 8 months old when we adopted him, so we don’t know his exact birthday, so this is the day that was guestimated as his day. A year ago we were celebrating with peanut butter apple cupcakes, this year it’s just another day. I was trying to just let the day pass, but I can’t. So I’ll share a couple of my favorite pictures of him.



he loved Cassie right from the beginning 


they always raced around the yard


he always laid flat on his belly


sitting pretty and catching treats!


Daddy always rolled down the window so he could get fresh air


chasing squirrels


He wasn’t supposed to get up here, but he always did!






always wanting a belly rub


He loved the snow!


He often watched us in the kitchen from the hallway


Miss you Murphy!  I hope you’re chasing all the squirrels away!

    Happy 12th celestial birthday, beautiful boy Murphy. I’m a little misty, as I know Mom and Dad are, too, but I am happy to be celebrating the wonderful dog and incredible warrior you were here on earth.

    Wonderful pictures, Donna.

    Manni’s eleventh is coming up at the end of the month and maybe you two could celebrate together with peanutbutter apple cupcakes and squirrels and snow and make it a big birthday bash and invite all the others.
