I refuse to be sad (OK, maybe just a little teary, but in a good sort of way)! Murph's story is one of such caring and love it just makes me want to celebrate! First, Lee helped care for Murph's elderly mom in her last days and worked very hard to find him a home. My friend, pet-diva Cynthia, heard and passed the word to everyone she knew and asked Space Paws to post it. We did and gentle readers picked up his story and carried it to the CB.
And what happened next was truly amazing. Person after person, around the country, stepped forward to say they'd help make Murph's last days wonderful. Pati was the first in driving distance to write, her vet vouched for their family, and in days they'd scooped him up and made him their own. Imagine the comfort it gave Murph's mom to know her old boy would be well cared for... and that so many generous souls stepped forward to help!
Pati's message from this morning:
Please join me in celebrating Murph's awesome story!! And in thanking Pati, Will, Ian, Sean, Taryn, Lee, Cynthia, our readers, the CB and everyone who helped make this love story possible!
To quote the dad of one of the great folks who offered to take Murph, E.W. Tiemann, Jr., "There's too much bad in the world, so the good should be recognized and enjoyed!"
