I said goodbye to Murphy this morning. She almost made it to her 15th birthday. I think her heart just couldn't take it anymore. She was laboring to breathe and I laid her on the cool tile floor in front of the door (her favorite place) and at around 7:30 this morning she passed on to the bridge. I will miss her greatly, but I know that she is running & playing with all the other pets.

Oh, Teresa, I am so sorry for your loss. I know far too well how painful it can be. Just take it a day at a time.

Thoughts and prayers coming your way :hp
RIP sweet Murphy :hp

Teresa: I'm so sorry for your loss. Murphy was well loved and will be sorely missed. She's no longer in pain and is running happily at the Bridge. You gave her a wonderful, long life and now have your own special angel watching over you. Sending prayers your way in the days ahead.

I am so sorry Teresa. I really think that each of us that knows what that loss feels like has their heart break along with yours as we each remember. You are right - she's likely running free and happy. I hope you find comfort in your memories and the fact that she is well.

I'm so sorry for your loss :cry I hope you will keep all the good memories of those 15 years dearly in your heart. I have never suffered the loss of a cocker, but I have tears in my eyes every time I read the Rainbow Bridge section. I can only imagine...

Sending hugs :hp

Oh, Teresa, I am so sorry to hear about your Murphy!! I don't know if you remember, but we used to talk about our Murphys, but mine was a boy and passed last December. I know that my sweet boy, Murphy would be so happy to see another Murphy at the Bridge and greeted her with a "Welcome" bark (He always was a barker). May you find comfort in the happy memories. My thoughts are with you!!

I so agree with needing group hugs. I just know that there will be a party on Murphy's birthday (Sunday). That girl loved to party!

Having just recently lost my own sweet Murphy-girl, I truly understand the heartbreak and sadness you are going thru. :cry My heart goes out to you. Right now a little girl named Rosie is cuddled up next to me, healing my heart and making me smile! Think of all the Murphys at the Bridge, never to be sick again! :sun :run
