Hi Marlee 2,
I am from the CP forum but saw your post. My heart goes out to you, my 14 yr old Lab/rotty's health was declining and I prayed so hard for her to die so I wouldn't have to make the decision your are at right now. My prayers were answered and she did on January 2. My heart still is broken and there is a hole in our home!
We found a place called Fairwinds here in Phoenix, we decided to have her remains cremated. I gives me comfort having her ashes. Someday when I am strong enough I will either bury them or sprinkle them.
Do what your heart tells you to do! You are in my thoughts and prayers!

I apologize for writing my post to Marlee2...it was for you!
Your Mr. Murphy is precious! You will remember all the cake eating and deer chasing later and it will make your heart happy....sounds like he enjoyed his life with you and your loving family!
I received a book from my sister in law after Cinder passed it is called "For Every Dog and Angel" by Christine Davis! Everyone should get this book, it explains beautifully about our FOREVER DOGS and the forever connection we will have with them.
Do Over, I'm so sorry and I know how you feel, exactly. We had to call the vet on Memorial Day because my 18 year old Dalmation could not take another day. Mr. Murphy has let you know it's okay to let him go. Peace to him and your family.
