Haha! Great pics! Over beans? Wow!

P.S. Hope your son feels better!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

They both love beans. Never thought they would like the raw ones so much, though. I have to ration them out and try to keep Murphy from picking his own.

Thanks for the good wishes for my son. He's doing amazingly well.

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

But...but..But, Hannah. BEANS ARE FOOD!

The beans here are soo sweet that I just know you would love them. Gus says that I can have cake because that means he will get all the beans.

Love, Murphy

PS. Thank you for my card
