I had not planned to spend the afternoon crying because of a Skyrim mod, but when there are dogs involved in a story it is quite difficult to hold back tears. Especially with a story as touching as this.
"Murphy" is a mod for Skyrim that introduces a dog as a new companion in the Bethesda game, but this good boy has a particularly special story behind. Its creator, a twenty-year-old kid named Daniel, made this mod as a tribute to his English greyhound, who died last year.
"On April 14, 2018 my dear dog, Murphy, passed away," the description explains. "As soon as I could compose myself that same day, I started working on what I knew I needed to do."
"I needed to immortalize it, the only way I knew how to do it: through Skyrim's modding."
