LPBW Fans Just Love Murphy

This isn't the first time that Little People, Big World fans were worried about Murphy. Back in June, speculations started circulating that Murphy was given away after some followers noticed that the Roloffs weren't posting as many photos of their pet as they used to.

Tori Roloff addressed these concerns on Instagram Stories by showing a photo of Muprhy with a caption stating they did not give him away. She also mentioned that Murphy "is still living his best life waiting for snacks to fall."

The LPBW star added that there are times she feels discouraged by the criticism she gets online just because she opted not to share much on social media.

"What you see is such a small piece of our whole story," the soon-to-be mom of three shared. "Just because Murphy isn't shared every day doesn't make him any less loved. He just has to compete with two kids for screen time."
