After the doctor gave him a complete examination, he told Murphy that he would need a complete hip replacement.
When the surgery was scheduled and Murphy was being wheeled into the operating room, he told the doctor he only had one request.

Murphy replied, “I have a large Irish Wolfhound at home and I was just wondering if you would save the bone for him.”
