April 13th 2001
rides in the car, attention from my adult kids and my grandchildren, treats
eating dog food, especially out of a bowl on the floor or even on the bed; coming out from under the bed when i call her
i have tried but she doesnt seem interested in toys, but she does love to play with blankets and pillows
chicken, loves any human food which i have been breaking her from
from car to pet store, from car to library, from car to my daughter's house
she gets up on hind legs for treat, she rolls around on the bed and we play "gentle wrestle"
Original owner got her when she was just 6 weeks old. Within the last year, the lady had twins who were allergic. She adopted Mollee out to a lady about 8 months ago. At that time, Mollee weighed 8 pounds. That woman put ad on craigslist to rehome Mollee and gave her to me about 2 months ago. Mollee weighed 2 pounds when i got her. She was extremely friendly and affectionate and just loves everyone in my family, adult kids and grandkids, too.
Mollee originally was professionally groomed until being rehomed. When i got her, she really needed a grooming. I bathed and blow dryed and brushed her and she acted like a princess on stage. I also did her anal glands because she was scooting and i was told to do that. She didnt react to that either. Cleaning her "weepy eye" has been difficult, but she tolerates that too. Also, i clipped her nails which she allowed, but not smiling. Her hair seems to be thinning some and very pink belly and chest, with little hair there. She was fixed early on and never had puppies. She is not a barker, but does let me know when someone is at the door or in the yard. She goes out to potty and comes right back in. She does like to hide under the bed. She's been acting pretty tired lately. She is a very picky eater and will only eat when i give her one tiny piece of food at a time. She loves to play and roll around on blankets, and just loves going for a ride in the car. She is adorable, and she is my best companion (i am a disabled widow) and if i go somewhere she goes with me. I never leave her home even when my adult sons are here. She loves cheese and i got her some cheesey puffs for dogs and she loves the smell of bacon, so i got her some tiny doggy hot dogs for special treat.

Within the last month, i have noticed that Mollee's long golden outer layer of fur is gone. She is mostly white now and her hair seems quite thin to me. What could be causing this? She is eating much better and i am being really good about not feeding her people food. i do add some olive oil occasionally to her food and i did give her some cooked casrrots, potatoes, and beef broth added to her regular food. I wonder why she is losing so much fur? Is that normal for a pom to lose her outer fur this time of year? Seems like she would need more fur now that it is getting cold in Michigan. I have also started giving her a little squeeze out of the tube of NUTRI CAL tht has all kinds of good stuff in it and also stimulates the appetite .........she is so small. I did give her some REVOLUTION FROM THE VET 45MG...JUST HALF OF IT that gets rid of fleas, heartworm, and intestinal parasites. She is my baby girl although she will be 9 in april. It is the 30th of october 09 and i am very thankful for Mollee being in my life. i just worry too much i guess.

When i got Mollee, i also got her license tag, and receipt from last vet visit which showed her up to date shots and when her boosters are to be done.
I did not get Mollee from her original owner. She had been rehomed because of the original owner's new twins being allergic to her.
One thing great is that she has always had the same yet since she was 6 weeks old. hopefully, i will like this vet and hopefully, this vet is not more expensive than the one i have gone to.
Since the original owner's name was on the license tag papers, i was able to contact her and get a lot of history about her which has been helpful to me. We have exchanged lots of emails and talked on the phone. she is very happy that i have mollee and is happy to talk with me about her and answer questions.
Mollee was fixed when she was much younger and has never had puppies. She is going to be 9 years old in April.
If it is 7human years for each animal year, then that means that mollee will be 63? Is that right? That will make us very close in age.

I have not done anything with deworming and havent seen any sign of worms so far, but since she pottys outside, i guess i might not know about that.
is deworming something that should be done every few months or what? Is that something that you have to get from the vet? Would i have to take her in for an office visit for that or just call my vet?
I just want to make sure i have covered all the bases and done everything i can for Mollee to be as healthy "an ole girl" as possible.
I used to have dogs years ago, but they were BIG dogs who were outside dogs mostly and i really dont remember dealing with some of this stuff. I have mostly been a cat person for the past ...........over 20 years actually.
