Murphy was the center of our family. He was truly the best dog ever and will be so missed. We are very thankful to have had so many great years with him. He definitely lived up to the bearded collie nickname of bouncing beardie; full of energy and happiness. He enjoyed running laps around the pony paddock, chasing the trash truck up and down the fence line, going for car rides, and running along the shoreline chasing seagulls at the beach. He also loved to go camping with us and was always up for long walks and new adventures. Murphy always found himself the comfiest place in the house, usually in someone's bed, we would find him nestled among the pillows and blankets and it would make us laugh every time. He has been there for many life events, including college graduations, new jobs, a couple of moves, marriage, and welcoming baby Evan to our family. We are thrilled that Evan was able to have him in his life for almost 3 years, he loved Murphy and always gave him hugs. We feel a deep void without him here, but find comfort in knowing that he had a great life and he brought immense joy to our lives. He will live on in our hearts forever.
