Rescued by Mary from the Dogs Trust at approximately 18 months old, Murphy has been our friend, companion and protector here at Our Garden@19.
His contribution to the team can be read in ‘The Garden – Garden Team’. He was always ready to play with his toys, leaving them conveniently around for us to trip over, endeavouring to keep the garden free of cats, letting us know when the Badgers were visiting the garden and joining in when the church bells rang! He would happily spend his day with us out in the garden, either up in the potting shed or lay just outside the summer house and looking hopeful when we had tea and biscuits! During his later years the open fronted potting shed became his favourite daytime, summer retreat. One event transcended all this for him and that was going for a walk with his mistress.
Oh! he did not like having his photo taken.
The garden seems empty at the moment.
