It is with a very heavy heart I have to report that Murphy was put to sleep yesterday. He had been battling ill-health for some time and was losing lots of weight, finding it hard to eat and sometimes couldn’t muster the strength to enjoy life. A lump was finally found in his bowels and when operated on it was discovered his bowels were covered in small tumours as well as the big one initially identified.
Forgive me if I don’t write more here – please look at the final chapter in About Murphy here if you’d like to know more. Suffice to say his ‘pain has gone’ and I hope wherever he is now is ‘a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day’.
