Local Dog Meets Idol
A local dog named Murphy was overjoyed on Monday when he finally met his boyhood idol, McGruff the Crime Dog.
“This was a seminal moment for Murphy,” said longtime friend Avis Long. “He’s been a huge fan of McGruff for years. He could barely contain himself.”
According to Long, McGruff was making a scheduled stop in the area to speak to a local neighborhood watch. Friends of Murphy arranged for the meeting as a surprise, initially telling the pup that they were going shopping for a new flea collar.
