WCAX in Burlington, VT is reporting that Murphy, the Golden Retriever who ran away after a car accident 18 months ago, is finally home with his family.
When Ed Hamel’s granddaughter was in a car accident in 2014, Murphy escaped and ran away. His brain immediately shifted to survival mode. He never left the Waterbury Center area, but he refused to be caught, even running from Mr. Hamel when he saw him.
Neighbors finally built a humane trap and caught Murphy, returning him to his home. Once back in familiar surroundings, Murphy settled back in as if nothing had happened.
So nice to have a happy ending!
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
