Murray 7.15.03-1.8.16

Recommended Posts

Tricia, I'm shocked, tearful, and deeply sorry as I'm just learning of this. (Flattened by flu for weeks.) Words just about fail me. That was a beautiful tribute you wrote, illustrated with your always-stunning photos of His Handsomeness. All of Greyhoundom will miss your Murray. He'll never be forgotten, that's for sure. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

I don't know how I missed this, but I was shocked to see this. As I read your story, It brought tears to my eyes. He was a beautiful boy. I loved that you called him your son, and your sun! You always took such beautiful pictures of him. I am very sorry for your loss of your sweet Murray. :grouphug May the memories of him bring peace to your heart :beatheart

He was so beautiful. I totally understand why you were so into photographing him. Bless his nervous soul. Ours was like that, too. She taught me so much. I am so sorry for your loss and so grateful for your presence here.

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." -- Unknown

My Murray is home tonight. This has only served to reopen the wounds that were starting to heal. I miss my boy so much. :(

I felt that way when I got Neyla's ashes back. :( I think about you and Burke a lot. This is a difficult time. You have a lot of friends who care about you and who understand your connection with Murray. Don't be afraid to reach out. I'm always available if you want to talk, cry, etc. Edited by NeylasMom

Sometimes life just sucks...I understand, I am still stuggling as I try to learn without Ben. It can be a long, painful process. :grouphug

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

I, too, missed the news somehow.


We are so very sorry for your loss.

What a long journey you all had together. I am gratified to think of you and Burke and Bee Wiseman did to heel this poor sweet soul. I am saddened by your loss.

I think Rocket put it best. Now, he's having stinky fish at the Bridge's all you can eat buffet and he'll no longer feel fear of storms or being alone. :brokenheart

He and Rocket are probably hanging out at their own "Camp Cocktail" and telling stories about what suckers we are.

Dear God, I hope so. :)
