Happy Murphy and Vote Sugar

We have some good news. Remember Murphy the dog? We have written about him before -- "Murphy" and "Murphy, Mercy and Merci."  Murphy was beaten over the head with a sledgehammer and left for dead by his owner in December 2008. He was saved when a man named Robert Kennedy found him, rushed him to a vet and assumed personal responsibility for the dog and his huge vet bill. However, donations poured in to cover his expenses.

Well, the trial is over and Murphy, who was evidence against the man who tried to kill him, now legally belongs to Kennedy.  These two belong together.  We hope they have many happy and healthy years together. You can read the Atlanta Journal-Constitution article about the dog "back on his paws" here.

Oh,and would you please vote for our blogging friend Sugar the Golden Retriever to be on TV. You can watch her promo video here.  There's no sign up or password necessary. Voting requires only your name and email address.  Sugar would appreciate your daily vote through the month of June but we imagine even a one time vote would be helpful.  Click here to vote for Sugar for WCIU Top U Dog.

Have a purring and tail wagging day.

  3. I am so happy for Murphy. He has a good home at last. I am also glad that Murphy's previous owner got a year in jail. He richly deserves it. I voted for Sugar.

  5. Oh my goodness! I've just read the newspaper article about Murphy. Thanks for the link.

    Poor Murphy. I'm just so so so glad that he is now with the lovely Mr Kennedy. I'm just so glad that the trial is over and that Murphy and Mr Kennedy can enjoy a wonderful life as family now. It never fails to amaze me how pets - so mistreated and abused - always bounce back given love and care.

    I'm off to vote for Sugar!

    Take care

  22. Thank God for people like Robert Kennedy. Really enjoyed seeing the photos of Murphy in the parade as an honorary golden retriver. So thankful Murphy made his recovery. Thanks for updating. Going to check out Sugar.
