:: View Pedigree ::

Murphy originally came to Kiesha Crawmer, imported from Canada thanks to Penny Wilmot and Catherine O'Brien.  Kiesha leased our girl Daisy to breed to Murphy and ever since we have been involved in Murphy's life!  We often took him to race meets and lure coursing trials and we helped finished some of his titles, including his ORC and FC titles.  While Murphy lived with Kiesha he produced 2 beautiful litters and then 3 puppies for us... so Murphy has been a big part of our lives and retired here at Shannon Down.  As a younger fella, Murphy distinguished himself in extremely tough competition at the WRA/NOTRA Nationals in 2003.  He placed 10th at the NOTRA National earning 1/4 ORC point and then placed 26th at the WRA National the following day.  He was over half way to his WRCh, pointed towards his RCh and LCM pointed!  Murphy almost made it to his 16th birthday, we let him go as his mind was failing him, though physically he was doing great (other than some iffy teeth), he never had a lump on him or a sick day that we can remember.  We decided to let him pass on July 27, 2015 as his dementia was getting worse.
