Hello Ian and Di,

Sadly I am writing to let you know we made the really hard but right decision to have Murphy put to sleep on Tuesday evening. He was i struggling with his hind legs collapsing, eating and drinking, along with being very old (possibly about 15) and basically increasing weaknesses.

He became blind 2 years ago due to progressive retinal thinning. A more stay at home boy and certainly a cuddle bunny evolved.

He was such a privilege and joy in our lives and we were so incredibly lucky to have this bumptious but brilliant boy for just under six years. He was such a character, so loving, determined and adventurous in his younger days No hedge was impenetrable, I lost count of the times I had to crawl down the banks of the beck to fish him out when he couldn’t scramble out after chasing ducks or even just a swim when his stubby little legs couldn’t get him out. Always me finishing up wet along with him... he was not the best or elegant of swimmers!

Huge paws with a huge heart, our special Murphy who will forever live in both of ours, he will be so missed.

Sue and Brian
