well, a literal translation would be 'welcome back, crumb (of cake or biscuit) - but that doesn't quite capture the colloquial sense of endearment ;-)

For instance, the British comedy series title "Auf Weidesehn, Pet" - pet was translated as muru.

Endearment is too scarce these days not to be taken for what it is and heartily thanked for. Good to see that in our ever-changing world, the best things (and people) remain unaltered.
