Boston Terrier

Of all our animals, Murphy is my life, my joy, my sparkle in life. She is an 18 year old Boston Terrier. She was sick as a puppy and one vet said she would never make a good pet. Needless to say, we got a 2nd opinion about her health needs and a new vet. Here she is 18 years later, the best pet I have ever owned. She and I are unseperable. I take her to work with me everyday. I love her madly. She can't see much anymore and her walking is limited these days, but she has an attitude and continues to tell us what to do. UPDATE: 6 months shy of her 20th bday, she passed on Oct 19, 2011 peacefully in my arms. Three days before we had spend the weekend with her and my mom a girls weekend in TN for one last horray. She loved the car rides. We will miss her forever. We are devastated but trying to heal. Please pray for us.

Are they fooling with you, Murphy? Hehe. Such a lovely pup! What a sweet story. :)

Mathscidi, you are SO fortunate to have shared the past eighteen years with such a beautiful baby. I lost my beloved Boston, Sparkie, when she was almost thirteen, due to cancer. She is never out of my mind, and that was seven years ago. You have obviously been a VERY good Mom to Murphy. I just love her little outfits. (Must keep her warm.) Hugs and kisses to this little Sleeping Beauty.

Lol, great picture. My husband tried to pose our puppy in a similar situation. 18 years old, wow! She would make a great portrait, I love illustrating Boston Terriers.

Murphy is so cute! I love Boston Terriers! My best friend has one named Laynie! Your baby is just adorable! How could that Vet say that about her?! 18! Wow! She looks super good for 18! I love those wrinkles in this picture :) She is just way too cute! Totally in my favorites!

you are so blessed. Unbelievable.

I have a plaque that reads " Blessed are those that have earned the love of an old dog". You both have been blessed it would appear. My border collies are now 13 and it's hard to see them aging, it happens too fast for our furry kids.
