Hi everyone,

This is a tough update for me to write. Murphy had to go to Tufts yesterday. He was favoring his left hind leg same side as his amp. Went in and they discovered he has a torn ligament in his knee. What's worse is that his cancer spread to his spine and right below his left knee. I am heart broken and now have to make the hardest decision any pet parent has to make. Can you all please send my brave guy love and positive energy through this tough time. 

Much love to you all,

Katrina and Murphy

You know we will. Our heart aches for Murphy and you, I'm really sorry. Whatever you need we are here for you OK? And never forget that you have been an amazing pet parent to your boy. Murphy's body might be weak but his spirit is still strong, and will never leave your side.

Oh Katrina. Like everyone else here, I am sooooo honored to know this magnificent Soul named Murphy. We are all so sorry to hear this.

Murphy has been doing so well and has handled all his hurdles like an Olympian Champion. And as a testament to Murphy's incredible determination and resolve to continue to make the most out of every moment, the only "sympton" he showed was some "favoring".

This rotten piece of crap disease is so brutal. It shows no mercy to our beloved furbabies. And yet brave Murphy plotted on without giving in...regardless of what xrays show.

I do hope some treatments are still possible to keep things at bay a bit longer. In the meantime, Murphy is by your side right now. None of these "results" changed anything in Murphy's world. Each moment with you is an eternal and never ending moment of happiness to Murphy. Do not let ANYTHING interfere with those moments! Don t waste ine second worrying about the tomorrows. Your love for Murphy is so strong you will get through this with total and complete focus on staying in the present with Magnificent Murphy.

And you already knkw this, but nothing is off limits when it comes to food! The more decadent a dd loaded with sugar, the better! Ice cream, cookies, cupcakes, and more ice cream...even a bit of chocolate syrup over the ice cream!

We are here with you, okay? We have the TRIPAWDS HELPLINE too, so don't hesitate to reach out.

Surrounding you with love and strength

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

It is with a heavy and broken heart that I am writing this post. I returned home from work today to find out Murphy passed away this morning. He was my best friend for the past 9 years. I will never forget and will always love my goofy, loveable, gentle giant lug of a dog. He will always be in my heart 💗 May he rest easy and have a safe journey over the rainbow bridge💕💗💕

Oh Katrina, to hear this just breaks my heart.

The tears we've shed this month seem to be non stop. And now we shed tears today for Murphy. This sweet "goofy gente lug of a dog" touched us all! Murphy will continue to touch lives with his brave and inspirational story.

Murphy got almost an additional year of loving and spoiling and enjoying a pain free life! He was a ROCK STAR in so many ways. He showed the world how well big dogs do well,; he showed the world how to sail through challenge after challenge; he even made the new because of the trial he was in!

Yes, Murphy's life mattered and he DEFINITELY made a difference!!

Many of us here know the deafening void that faces you now. We know the hurt, the sadness, the gutwrenching and non stop crying.

We also know that the sadness WILL subside. The thousands of happy memories will push the sadness further and further into the background. We also know Murphy WLL send you messages and show you signs that he is happy AND still by your side!

Stay connected. We would looove to hear more About Murphy and all his delightful adventures with you. And we know you and that goofy boy had plenty!

Surrounding you with our love a d lots of hugs

Ohhhhh my gosh this is just the saddest news, I'm sorry about Murphy!

I know it's hard to cope with such a huge loss in your life. Murphy was a big dog with a big presence. I'll bet everyone who met him will remember your handsome pup. And on three legs? What a hero!

You and Murphy went through a lot together. Give yourself time to grieve. Remember there is no set timeline and if or when you want to talk, we understand what you are feeling. Never forget that you gave him the best home and love and care that any dog could ask for. Through thick and thin you were there for that boy. May all those good times surround you with love and carry you through the sadness.

Oh Katrina I am so sorry to hear ;"(.   I am glad I was able to meet you and Murphy at TUFTS and see him on TV.
