murphy5Hi Joy,

Happy Holidays to you and your family!! I hope your holidays were filled with joy and happiness.

As you can see by the pictures Murphy is doing very well. He has been part of our family for almost 2 months now and we love him so much. He loves everybody and is so sweet. Remember how skinny he was? Well his first trip to the vet he weighed in at 23 lbs and he is now 31!!! He looks wonderful !! He loves to eat and has filled out so nicely. He loves to play and has so many toys but his favorites are the ones that squeek!! He also will steel your slippers if you don’t have them on! He loves to go in the car and for walks. Walks are a bit tough right now with this winter weather in NY. He didn’t really like the snow in the beginning but he really didn’t have a chose. That white stuff is here for a few more months. I sent you a few recent pictures. As you can see Murphy loves sleeping with my youngest son, Kyle!! They didn’t even know I took the picture. He is still a “scardy cat”and is afraid of a lot of things but we are working on that with him. I hope you have a Happy and Healthy New Year. Thank you for saving such a sweet dog!

Chris, Murphy and the entire Snyder Family
