Beloved Olive U, American yellow labrador retriever, passed away quietly at home with her loved ones at 3pm on Sunday June 9th, 2019 at the age of 15 years, 4 months, and 7 days. She was born on Tuesday 02/03/04 at Harrison kennel in Trinity, Alabama. Olive U had many nicknames including Olive, Oly, Miss Ol, Miss Olive, Oil (Anne), Petunia,Oly B’ Golly (and the Binks), Cutie Pa Tooty, My Peach, Good Girl, Sweets, Goodie, Kimmy, and Tammy. Owners John and Anne- Marie Murphy along with trainers and caregivers David and Adam Jacques were her best friends along with Nancy, Kate, Emily, Mel, Coach Carron, everyone at the therapy pool, and custodians, groundskeepers at Ponaganset High School. Olive U shared a wonderful life with her late siblings Katie Binks, her big sister the late Sandy Cheeks Waterwalker, as well as cats Zippy and LU. Some of Olive U’s favorite toys were tennis balls (not thrown very far, she liked to play shortstop), along with her frisbees thrown high enough to catch in mid-air. Her favorite activities were walking on the trail and training every day in the field with her two sisters Sandy Cheeks and Katie Binks, receiving treats from everyone at the school, and just floating at the therapy pool. She was truly a Lab and at her best when she was soaking wet. More of her hobbies included pulling John on skis, fetching and finding in the woods and in the field, visiting and playing with the kids at the school, walks in the woods and just taking in the smells, riding in the car with John, laying in the snow on the back deck and laying by John’s feet in the evening. Her Favorite place to sleep was under the coffee table (Olive’s cave), and her favorite food was people food, small pieces of chocolate and anything John was eating. Miss Olive was a very easy dog to live with and to train; she was very gentle and loyal. Olive was always the first dog out of the woods on her way back when John blew the whistle. I fondly remember the day she carefully alerted me to a Newborn fawn she found in the woods. I will always remember the happy look on her face as I pulled her around in her cart (the Oli cart). She was so happy to be visiting places she used to frequent when she could no longer walk to them. She will be truly missed and forever loved.

A final loving message from Olive U’s dad John Murphy:
“You are the last of my Three Yellow Labs. Each one of you and all three together have changed our lives in so many ways and in ways we will probably never know. Thank-you for watching over us. Thank-you for being my very loyal friend. Olive U, what a great name! I will miss you and love you, Sandy and Katie every day, until the end of time, and forever. LOVE LOVE LOVE”

Olive was a great dog. I first met her and her sister Katie Bink as they started their swimming adventure. Olive was the lifeguard and loved to watch Katie swimming. She would walk down the ramp to get her feet wet and a treat then back up to the dock. She won the medal for walking backwards up the ramp. After gaining her friendship and trust we were able to get her swimming. Even though she would rather not, she tolerated this activity for treats. Olive was a gentle soul and it was always a highlight of the day when she came swimming. She and her sisters had a perfect dog’s life with the Murphy’s and it was beautiful to hear John talk about their adventures. I am so blessed to have know her. I will continue to retell her stories and the love they all shared. - Nancy
