RIP, Murray the Furry

You were a good dog.

You were fuzzy and you shed quite a bit, but you were also patient with the kids.

As a rescue dog, we wondered what we would get when we adopted you. We couldn't have picked a better dog if we tried. You were just the right speed for us: You didn't require much beyond occasional long walks, loving attention, dog treats and pets.

You hated to be brushed.

You loved rolling in the grass, leaves and snow. You especially loved doing it after I gave you a bath.

It is strange to not see your grinning face looking at me in the morning now. You could drive me insane, because I probably would have loved you more had you loved me less. But you were a good dog, even for cat people at heart.

We miss you already.


Your MommyTracked Family.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. It's just heartbreaking to lose a true member of the family.
My heart is with you guys.

I'm sorry, Sherrie. I know how hard it is to say goodbye to a dog. But I also know how sweet the memories will become over time. My family and I laugh to the point of tears sometimes over the silly things our beloved beagle did years and years ago.

Ah, I'm so sorry. It's amazing how much we can love our furry friends.
