Meet Murphy The Gorgeous Goldendoodle. No blue Monday here as I love Mondays.

I have every Monday off work, so I look forward to it. Especially when it was my weekend to work.

I have been a bit quiet here and over on Instagram just lately. This is because I have been feeling a bit down. Sad as it was approaching my father’s 1 year anniversary of his death.

The sadness is always there but the thing’s like this just highlight it. You know how much I miss Mollie The Border Collie too.

Meet Murphy The Gorgeous Goldendoodle. They say dogs have a way of finding people who need them. On Thursday, the 1st anniversary of my dad’s death, this beautiful boy came into our lives.

We have been looking for a dog for a while now but nothing ever felt right, until Murphy came along. We first had to find a dog that we all agreed on. I wanted a bigger dog like a Golden Retriever and my husband like the idea of a smaller dog liked a Cavapoo.

Then this beautiful boy came along and it was one of those adverts we kept going back to, hoping he would not go before we had the time to go and see him. Lucky for us he didn’t.

We named him Murphy after my father and we love him to bits. Here he is around 9 weeks old here as these photos were taken as soon as we got home. He looks huge in the photo as they are close up. But he is not, he is small. It’s his curls that make him look big.

Bless him, he will need more hair cuts than me! I love spending time with him and he is so funny to watch. He has his little moments where he runs around the garden or does a cute little bark when you run with him.

10 days ago, I lost my wonderful, funny, caring father. I am now starting to cope but still can not get my head around that is has gone. Last week is a blur. This week is a blur. Also, I’m sure next week will be a blur too.

I am a big believer in trying to post happy things, the yummy things on the blog, or fun things to make people smile but sometimes life gets too real.

I’m just letting you know this is why I have not been around here for a while. I am now feeling that I can hide my grief and go back to posting happier things, again.

Secondly, The Last Chapter: Mollie The Border Collie. It is with a heavy heart, I let you know that Mollie The Border Collie has died. I am heartbroken as I loved her so much. We were best friends and spent hours together every day of her life.

As if my life hasn’t been bad enough with losing my dad in January, I now have to deal with losing my fur baby. When we first brought her home, she was so tiny at just eight weeks Mollie The Collie: Puppy Diaries. We have had such a great journey together and she was one loved dog.

    Hi Claire!
    You know I LOVE dogs! If I won the lotto, I would be starting up a Dog Rescue as my own business. Hubby has allergies, so..
    I loved reading about Mollie, and am sorry to hear about your Dad. I have been feeling a bit gloomy as well, my Dad passed 6 yrs ago. I feel for you.
    You have the cutest names, and I love Murphy! Goldendoodles are so loveable and friendly, he is just adorable!! I look forward to hearing about his antics! Congrats! I love that you say, “Love him to bits”! I say that to Gibby and Truffy every day.
