Went to Rainbow Bridge 24.12.09


A Tribute from Sandie

Murphy, the very first dog to appear on the IRR website with his pal Shera, went to Rainbow Bridge on 24 December.  

Murphy was surrendered to the Pound together with his best pal Shera back in 2005 and the McVey family made the journey to Sandie's home in Ireland to collect them and take them back to Scotland where they have lived a very happy life since, particularly enjoying the company of Liam and Eve who are devastated at their loss. 

Although Shera is missing Murphy, she's enjoying the extra special attention being paid to her. 


Old Dogs Do Not Die

We have a secret, you and I,
That no-one else shall know.
For who but I shall see you lie,
Each night in fireglow?

And who but I can reach my hand
Before we go to bed,
And feel the living warmth of you
And touch your silken head?

And only I walk woodland paths,
And see, ahead of me,
Your small form racing with the wind,
So young again, and free.

And only I can see you swim
In every brook I pass.
And when I call, no-one but I
Can see the bending grass.
