Love is…

July 9, 2011

A game of fetch where the stick is always returned a few inches out of reach in water…

A wet nose knocking my arm so that my hand always lands on your head for a quick pat…

Crawling under my feet for a foot pet on your belly…

Miles and miles and miles of the best running partner a girl could ever have…

Doggy breath in my face in the middle of the night, instead of barking to go out to potty…

Eyes closing and deep sighs of contentment with every ear scritch…

Love is living for 16.75 years when your body could barely hold you up anymore…

Love is Murphy

October 1, 1994 – July 7, 2011

    I have no words, but know that my thoughts are with you and your family. It’s never easy, but try to think of the good memories. ((HUGS)) & love.

    Gretchen came and sat in my lap while I read… and cried. The greater the love, the deeper the loss… Hugs to you!!
