Rainbow

Hello Friends

I'm back from my adventure with my MOM and my gal pal Belle.  And what an adventure it was!  I will be sharing that adventure with you soon.  But today I need to do something far more important.  

It is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to my good friend Murphy.  Many of you know Murphy, he has been on my blog many times.  He is one of my Fort adventure friends, he did Search and Rescue with our buddy Bert, as well as therapy at the hospital with Bert and my MOM. 

Murphy went to the Rainbow Bridge on September 1st.  It was sudden and unexpected and his family misses him very, very much.
On that day while MOM, Belle and I were hiking around at the end of a storm, this beautiful rainbow appeared.  I can't help but think it was made just for you Murphy.  I will miss you deeply my friend.  But I know that someday we will romp and play and chase kitties together again.  Until we meet again my friend.
Blessings,
Goose

  2. I was shocked and saddened to see Miss Vickie's post yesterday concerning Big Murphy. I am so sorry, my thoughts go out to his family and all his buddies both 2 legged and 4 legged. He will be missed great by many. Please let his family know how deeply sorry we are for there loss.
    One of my favorite posts about him was when you said he looked like a giant floating bedspread at the river. He must have been an AWESOME dog.

  37. I am so sorry to hear about your friend Murphy. It is never easy to say goodbye to a friend let alone one who did so much good in the world. :(

  38. This was terribly devastating and I thought of you all hiking, knowing it would be difficult to learn about when you returned. My heart breaks for Miss Vickie and Bert and all their extended family, including you and your MOM, Goose. The rainbow is beautiful and I truly believe it was a special reminder that what's at the end of the rainbow is far more wonderful than we can ever imagine. That's where Murphy is and there's some peace in that.

    Sending see beautiful thoughts your way! With love, Lydia

  39. I am so very very sorry. Murphy was obviously such a very special dog, and a great friend to you and Bert. I send you healing thoughts... and I hope that you can provide some solace to Murphy's family. I'm sad too.

  40. Add my heartfelt sadness to all the others. Murphy stole my heart as well. Even though he did not have a blog, his personality shone through in your posts and Bert's. I could not believe my eyes when I read that Murphy had crossed the Bridge. What a handsome, wonderful pal to all of you. I am sending each of you hugs. Nothing can ever replace a friend such as Murphy, even if we only read about him.
