Poor thing! Tori Roloff recently shared a very stressful story about her family’s dog Murphy, revealing they just had a huge scare after he ate something he shouldn’t have. The Little People, Big World star said the whole experience was very eye-opening.

“Sometimes I wonder why I do this to myself,” the mother-of-one wrote began her Instagram post on Oct. 4. “All the extra stress and work that comes along with having a puppy and a toddler. Yesterday I was reminded of why. Murphy ate something he wasn’t supposed to… as puppies do… and it made him really sick. He spent all day throwing up and we thought he may have to have surgery to remove it.” The TLC star explained how the ordeal made her appreciate the Bernese Mountain dog more than she could have imagined.

“It’s sad that it takes something going wrong for me to realize what I have and how grateful I should be for them every second of the day,” Tori added. “No matter how crazy Murphy drives me he is a part of our family. Thank the lord it all passed and he did not need surgery! He is back to his durphy happy self.” Fans couldn’t be happier about the good news and many were noting how easy it is to fall in love with dogs. “They become a part of the family so fast that you don’t know what you would do without them,” one commented.

After Zach and Tori’s announcement about their furry new addition on July 11, former LPBW star Audrey Roloff took to her Instagram Stories to share snaps of Ember and Jackson bonding with Murph. And since then, he’s become a certified member of the squad. Just one day ago, Tori shared another sweet photo of Murphy posing with her one-year-old son in a pumpkin patch, revealing that Roloff farms open this weekend. Keep the cute pics coming!
