Call it Kismet when Murphy became a welcomed addition in the home of Agency Resources Manager Tom Barnes and his wife, Erin.
Tom and Erin rang in 2021 by adopting Murphy, a male Golden Retriever, who was 8 weeks old at the time.
How did they choose their new pet’s name?
“The puppy is cream color, loves the water, and is a bit feisty, so the name Murphy fits,” Tom said. “The Irish name means ‘white potato’ or ‘sea warrior.’”
"This is the third Golden Retriever we’ve had and we love the breed,” Tom said. “They have the perfect mix of energy and quiet time. They are one of the friendliest dogs you can ever know.”
