In the wonderful picture book, "Let's Get a Pup," Said Kate, by Bob Graham, the family decides on a cute pup but leaves the Rescue Center with a heavy heart after seeing Rosy, who was "old and gray and broad as a table" and "radiated Good Intention." Needless to say they become a two dog family when they go back the next day and adopt Rosy.
While Murphy, who was known as Mayor at the League, is not old and gray he did radiate good intention. His adopter saw that right away. In a recent update she wrote, "He's doing wonderfully. He had a little problem with the steps at first but now he's running up and down them all on his own. He gets taken to the dog park near my house to play fetch in the morning when we usually have the place to ourselves and then we go back once I'm home from work so he can socialize and run around with other dogs.
He's such a cuddly, sweet, gentle dog and I'm so happy I adopted him! I've included a few photos of Murphy loving life!
Thank you so much for the help with adopting him. Murphy and I could not be happier!"
And, the email and pictures of Murphy enjoying life with a bone and toy and a crate of his own and a person who loves him unconditionally absolutely made my day!
