Meet Murphy (Lhas-aposo mix) rescued from an abusive and neglectful ‘home’ by my friend and husband 15 yrs ago.
He passed on Feb 17 (16 yrs old) after a brief and brave battle with cancer having sailed thro ear surgery 2 mons prior despite the discovery of the cancer (during his surgery).
He was my surrogate furfriend…doing long walks and visits to my place. He is the reason I adopted Tye.
Unfortunately Tye and Murphy never connected as I had hoped…each believed that I belonged to their pack and no chance of integrating the 2…both strong willed, alpha dogs that like (good) people more than their own kind.
I miss Murphy but everyday his spirit is close to me knowing Tye and he are very similar both in personality and quirky behaviors.
