One Year On

Murphy & Me 1995 - she was 2 months old
This time last year I lay cuddling my 16 year old Westie, Murphy, who I knew would not be with me for long. It was her birthday and it also became the day she chose to leave. I can’t explain the pain that her death brought me; the overwhelming sadness of no longer having her constantly by my side.
I know that there are loads of people who will not understand the devastation a person can feel at losing a pet and that’s OK – this site (findingmurphy.com)isn’t for you but there are so many people who do need to grieve and share memories in order for them to heal. I am hoping that this site will help.
