Happy 13th Birthday, SuperMurph!

goodstuff1Another year/7 has/have gone by already! Noooooo!!!

It’s amazing how dog years can put time into perspective. Last year, Big Murph was 84, but today she turns 91. When we moved here to Florida, we were straddling 40 together. Today, she is twice my age…

I’ll redirect you to a post I wrote about her on her birthday last year. There’s nothing much to add except that my girl is in excellent health today, zipping around the neighborhood like usual, resting a little more often but still feeling zesty!

So the race is on between her and my car to see who can make it the longest. I have set a limit of $500.00 a year in maintenance for each of them. After that, all bets are off — if the transmission goes on either one, it’s sayonara! Murph was just a pup when we picked up Big Red at the dealership, so the day either one of them goes is the day the other goes too. I will load Murph up in her back seat and set them adrift like an old Indian in his beloved canoe when it’s time for that final journey.

    Sweet old Murph, it’s hell getting old but it’s better than the alternative.
