Shady Pines Stay Evergreen aka Murphy
Well, we weren't exactly looking for a dog especially after losing our doberman. I figured we would wait a couple years but as fate would have it.. Murphy joined our family in May 2022. He made the trip all the way from Ohio! He came from Operation 6:12 which is basically a ministry based organization that helps people of all types who are facing life struggles of all types. They were wonderful to work with and Murphy has been an amazing addition to our family. He was very well socialized when he came and the day he arrived we loaded him up to bring Lillie to school and he met the staff, teachers, the entire first grade class and instantly became their mascot.. without a care in the world.. He has been to school drop off and pickup every day until the end of the year and takes everything in stride..he even went to his first horse show not long ago! My chosen sister Beth helped me with his AKC name as I always have these thing planned in advance but this was a spurt of the moment decision! Shady Pines for the farm.. Stay Evergreen.. Evergreen meaning timeless.. We are a golden family forever.. we have had other breeds and have finally realized ( even though I guess we knew but didn't believe it) this is the breed for us forever..7 years was too long without a golden since Foster passed and the yellow dog hair was missed for sure!
