The ad in the June 1998 newspaper said, “1/2 golden retriever, 1/2 golden lab, 11-month-old-male, needs good home. ”They forgot to say how sweet and wonderful Murrey was and how he would become just our best buddy ever. He was big and so smart, gentle, tenderhearted, funny, furry and fluffy (after a grooming) and just full of pure love.
Chasing rabbits, “wrestling” with Jeff, greeting trick-or-treaters on Halloween, fetching tennis balls (and playfully refusing to bring them back). . visiting Ursula and Walter for daily hugs (& treats), helping Jeff in the shop, rescuing Julie from the wild raccoon and helping us through our own health challenges. You were the most unselfish, giving soul we ever met.
We miss you, dear Murrey. But we are grateful for your gentle trip Home on August 21st. Our lives are forever blessed by the eleven wonderful years we shared with you.
Julie & Jeff Brand and family and all your friends
