Nibbs Murphy

I was saddened to hear about the passing today of Nibbs Murphy!  Nibbs was a dog, a beautiful, tail-wagging happy dog – adopted 13 years ago by two people who loved him and made him part of their family, Mike and Kim Murphy.

Nibbs brought so much joy to the Murphy family, especially with the addition of  their two sons Elijah and Gavin.  The 5 family members made a home… a home filled with love, laughter, and joy!

I love these words from John Galsworthy about how a pet can make a pet a home!

    “N ot the least hard thing to bear when they
    go from us, these quiet friends, is that they
    carry away with them so many years of our lives.

    Y et, if they find warmth therein,who would
    begrudge them those years that they
    have so guarded?”

    And whatever they take, be sure they have deserved.”

    John Galsworthy “Memories”
