so very sorry to hear your sad news you must be truly devastated. My heart goes out to you. Run free dear Murphy over the bridge. I stood by your bed last night I came to have a peep. I could see that you were crying you found it hard to sleep. I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear, "It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, and I?m here. I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, you were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me. I was with you at the shops today your arms were getting sore I longed to take your parcels I wish I could do more. I was with you at my grave today you tend it with such care. I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there. I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key. I gently put my paw on you I smiled and said, "It?s me." You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there. It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday. To say to you with certainty, "I never went away." You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you. The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I?ll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side. I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me.-Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I've not spoken to Joanne since last night but she did say to pass on her thanks to everyone who has been involved in helping to find him. It's devastating news as there were so many sightings of him and everyone was so full of hope that he'd be found safe and unfortunately this has happened. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

By the edge of a wood at the foot of the hill, Is a lush green meadow where time stands still, Where friends of a man and woman do run, when their time on earth is over and done, For here between this world and the next , Is a place where each beloved creature find's rest ! On this golden land they wait and play till Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day. No more do they suffer in pain or sadness for here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness!!!! Their limbs are restored their health renewed their bodies have healed strength imbuled !!!! They run through the grass without even a care, untill one day they Stop and sniff the air !!! All ears pricked forward, eyes dart side to side, Then all of a sudden one breaks from the pack ! For just that instant their eyes have met Together again person and pet, So they run to each other these friends from long past, The time of their parting is over at last !! The sadness they felt whilie they were apart has turned into Joy once more in each heart, They embrace with a love that will last forever and side by side they cross over together !! Run wild and free MURPHY with the warmth of the sun on your back forever x x Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I'm going out for a wander on my lunch around Navigation Road area.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Come on Murphy, your just too handsome to be out there on your own.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Just spoken to Joanne, another possible sighting of Murphy (on his own again) on canal between Timperley and Brooklands. Just off out for a little scout about. MandyLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I've been out with the smaller flyers this evening and pounced on everyone I saw walking around the area. I've given to all the shops to display on Riddings Road and Hayes Lane. The Sylvan pub have about 25 to pass to customers which is really good of them! I spoke to Jo before and she is extremely greatful for all the help her and Derek are receiving and passes on a huge thank you to all. I'll get out later in the week with the larger posters to stick up on lamp posts etc. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thanks Mandy, you are a star. Jan xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Have just printed off some of the smaller flyers have added Murphy to Manchester Gumtree Lost and found section. Will look at other free ad sites through out the day. MandyLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Posters put up around the Leigh dogs home area on Saturday and everyone on our Manchester walk made aware of Murphy. Am going to give a local taxi driver some flyers to hand out. Altrincham Mail sorting office is a good place to try to get a poster up too, cant get there myself today. MandyLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Your new small posters for Murphy are now ready for you on the info centre, left hand side above Dollys Directive logo. Please download and print. Use these for your hand outs and for posting through doors. Murphy is gorgeous ! Good luck with your search. You are doing really well, just keep going until you get some news.

dcmurph, welcome on board DL and thanks for registering and updating us. Thanks to everyone who is helping in the search for Murphy. Smaller posters now done for Murphy and emailed to Yasa to go on the Info Centre. Hope they help and we see this lovely boy in the BLUE soon. Good luck. Jan x Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thankyou to everyone for all the help so far, we were out again today looking, putting posters up and trying to raise awareness around the area of last possible sighting.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Murphy not at Manchester dogs home, there is a EBT in the hospital part not on view to the public, so I didn't get to see him or her but the staff have said it's colour is brindle and white. Your picture is now on the display board. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Brilliant - thanks very much! My printer is playing up at the minute so I can't print posters (all the colours are blending into one) so I'm going to have a walk down the canal this evening. I'll get posters printed asap and hand out near work. I've crossposted Murphy to Facebook so all my friends in the area are aware he's missing. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thanks!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hi Clare here .......leaflets handed out at Northern Prov. Bull Terrier Club show today. Special attention paid to those who live up and down M6 corridor and those in the cheshire area.

Spoke to Joanne late last night and managed to get a picture sorted, flyers have gone to the show today and will be handed out. Am doing more to take on the walk with me tomorrow. Joanne said the possible sighting was near Halfords with is close to Broadheath Retail park.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
When was the sighting? and where is the navigation pub?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Poster has been e mailed out to over 300 local helpers and registered organizations.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Text sent to Joanne chasing up photo as it would be really helpful if Pigpad could have it in time for the show today. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Sorry forgot there is a BT show tomorrow in Manchester, I will give out Murphys details but a picture would be useful. MandyLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Only just spotted this, though I have a Manchester postcode Timperley is 5 minutes from me, will put the word out here and get on Unmissabull, picture would be great. We have a bully walk in Manchester on Sunday so if possible to get a picture asap I can make up some flyers and get them handed out.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thanks Tab! Owner left me a voicemail earlier today stating there is a possible sighting near Navigation Road tram station. I work quite close to this area so will be going out at lunchtimes and evenings etc. If anybody has family that work on Broadheath Retail Park, please pass them a poster as this is also close to where Murphy went missing. If this is Murphy it seems as though he's staying along the canal area. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I will be at MDH on Sunday, hopefully Murphy will already be home, I will print his poster and put it up on the notice board, if no one else hasn't. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Ive checked the link, there are no EBTs showing on there?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I can't view the link. Just spoken to owner (Joanne) and she said she's so glad she spoke to Admin this morning and is very greatful for the information she recieved. Murphy went missing from the fields near the Sylvan pub. Joanne is going to register as a helper later this evening and a photo of Murphy will be emailed over. Could any visitors to MDH please also look for Murphy as it's doubtful I can get there this weekend. However, I will be out with posters Sunday evening. xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
