I did the same thing
Wed Aug 21, 2013 11:20

hang in there! It's worth the wait!
I will never forget when we went to
pick Murphy up--Lisa opened the door
as we were walking up. She was holding
Murphy, then handed him to me and I
almost melted ;)
The process was fun, she's taught me
SO much and her passion for what she
does is evident in her babies.
The evening that we brought Murphy home,
my husband's boss called and told him
his position had been "eliminated." Not wanting
to spoil the excitement from bringing Murphy
home, he tried to keep it in but knowing
something was wrong, I kept pressing. I
will never forget what happened next. My
husband was sitting on the couch and as he
told me the news, tears started rolling down
his face. Murphy, then only 8 weeks old, went
right up to him, crawled up his chest and began
licking his tears away. We both cracked up
laughing at the totally unexpected, heart-warming
gesture and then our tears turned into those of
fear to those of joy. Murphy immediately helped
us to put things into perspective. He has a special way
of knowing when tears are really sad ones--the second
time he did that was recently, when my 9 year old
son learned his best friend, his Peepaw was diagnosed
with stage 4 cancer. Skyler was sitting on the floor,
he bent over and silently started crying. When he
sat back up, tears were rolling down his face and
then Murphy came over and did his thing--licked
away his fears and exchanged them for laughter!

My 17 year old son put it best when he said the
other day that whenever he goes to his friends
houses who have dogs--it's just not the same! He
said Murphy is like a part of our family. He also
said, "Don't be surprised when I go off to college,
when one day you will wake up and Murphy will
be gone." Lol -uhhhh I DON'T think so! ;)
I am confident our experience would not have been
the same had we not found Lisa so hang in
there!! Don't forget to post on here when you
finally get your puppy!! <3
