Be the first to offer your condolences on Murphy's Tribute Wall
Murphy was lying under a Christmas tree when he was chosen by the Osborn’s to become a member of their family on December 17, 2007. His family included Brian with who he could count on for quality time in the recliner and snacks; Eric with who he could always make laugh and count on for care; Erin who he lounged with frequently and taught him tricks; and Carol who he cuddled with and was her constant companion.
Murphy’s full time job was overseeing all family activities and keeping the yard secure. Once, during middle of the night patrol he managed to save the yard from a marauding skunk and got sprayed in the process. The skunk never returned.
Murphy’s hobbies included tracking chipmunks, walks, supervising all meal preparation activities, sleeping, holiday family gatherings, lying in the sun, and perhaps his favorite, pushing his ball around the yard.
Murphy was a lot of fun and gave love unconditionally. He was a friend and a very loved member of the Osborn family and will be greatly missed.
