Murphy the French bulldog is deaf.
She has learned some sign language and is my constant shadow. It doesn’t matter if she is dead asleep; within a few seconds, she finds me. She turns 7-years-old in November. She is a Queen Bee and definitely knows it.
She is a tough girl. She has undergone surgery to remove 50 urinary crystals. In addition, she was rushed to the University of Florida for emergency surgery for bulging disks. UF IS FANTASTIC. She underwent physical therapy and is back to her cantankerous self. She weathered it all beautifully.
Baxter the pug just turned 5-years-old in March. He is my love bunny. He loves to snuggle and never leaves my side. Sometimes I feel like a book between two bookends, but there’s no other place would I rather be. Baxter is quite handsome and seems to know it.
They have never met a stranger and love attention. I can’t imagine life without them. They give me so much unconditional love. They are amazing.
