Little People's Tori Roloff responds to fan speculation her family dog Murphy has DIED after she says he's 'in heaven'

LITTLE People's Tori Roloff responded to fan speculation that her family dog Murphy had DIED after she said "he's in heaven."

Her fans worried for Murphy after the miscommunication, as Tori and her husband Zach lost their dog Sully to cancer back in 2017.

Tori, 30, had posted a photo of Murphy playing in a winter wonderland of snow.

She originally captioned the adorable post saying he "was in heaven" but intended it as a non-literal use of the world.

Many fans panicked and thought Murphy had passed away.

Tori quickly corrected fans and posted a video correcting the misunderstanding.

The TLC star posted: "I feel like a terrible person. I meant that Murphy was in heaven with all of the snow.

"He's still alive, he's running around outside. I'm so sorry!

She said: "Murphy's right here. See, he's still alive, still doing his thing!" as Murphy happily pounced on her face.

Tori re-posted the photo to her Instagram Story and wrote: "Hahaha this is Murphy having so much fun in the snow.

Zach and Tori's beloved dog Sully was riddled with cancer, which they revealed on their reality show.

Sully died days after they found out.

They were seen on the show, hugging and crying as they buried Sully, who was only three years old, on the Roloff farm next to three other family dogs that had died in the past.

Zach explained how the loss hit them especially hard because they expected Sully to make up their dream family after the arrival of their baby.

"We were supposed to make a family together," he said. "Sully was supposed to take care of the baby and be his friend. Just tons of dreams and visions were crushed."

Tori was most devastated by Sully's loss, saying: "Sully, for me, especially before I got married – he was just my best friend."

The dog had liver cancer that spread to his stomach, and he told his mom: "He's infected 75 percent. He's pretty much dying. Tori's a wreck."

Sully sadly died at their house. Zach explained: "It was peaceful."

The Bernese Mountain dog was buried on the family farm.

They got another puppy of the same breed, Murphy, a year later.

Zach and Tori are parents to son Jackson and daughter Lilah and Tori is expecting her third child.


Tori showed off her growing baby bump before the holidays in a series of sweet photos.

The Little People, Big World star – who is pregnant with her third child with husband Zach – reflected on her devastating past miscarriage in the emotional caption.

In the photos, Tori wore a clingy black dress and posed side-on to display her stomach while standing in front of a Christmas tree.

She wrote in the lengthy caption: "A little pregnancy update: I feel like miscarriage truly steals your joy. This pregnancy, it’s been so difficult to get excited.

"However, we have seen baby multiple times and we’ve heard his/her heartbeat a ton. And it’s strong. I’m at the point that my husband makes fun of me for going to all the appointments because my OB teased that by the third most women skip out on them."

The TLC star had suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage back in March.

The mother of two explained during a LPBW episode that they found out about the tragedy several weeks into the pregnancy during an ultrasound appointment.

Tori said she now feels reassured by her baby's movements, penning in her post: "I’m starting to feel baby move pretty consistently.

"That has really helped me relax and enjoy these moments with our sweet babe!!"
