Freckle-faced Murphy, a cocker spaniel, came to Preston Hollow after being rescued from the Wilmer-Hutchins area of Dallas. While it took him some time to acclimate to the clang of church bells and elevator confines, he’s now happily settled into his Preston Tower home. He loves riding in the car and regular walks to Lucky Dog Barkery. “I wasn’t sure I wanted another dog until I saw this face,” owner Nancy Allen gushes. Readers agree, naming Murphy the winner of the 2015 Advocate Pet Contest out of more than 100 votes.
