Anything made of fleece, mom's socks, Mr. Ropeman, any squeeker toy

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
A walk thru the fresh dirt at the construction sites near our house, around the block and up to the mail box, any forested area or trail

Best Tricks:

Arrival Story:
Before we were married we decided we should have a dog. I went to Bonnie Hayes shelter and there she was. She was about 3 1/2 mos old and someone had already adopted her and returned her! I felt sorry for her so I took her home. Let me tell you there was a reason someone returned her! She pushed every button a new dog owner could have. Although....the one thing she wasn't was destructive. She stress whined for the first 2 years. Any time there was nothing going on, she would start whining for no reason. They call it stress whining. She stayed in our kitchen with a baby gate while we where at work. We tried the kennel and she literally screamed for hours. Until we got Riley a couple months later and she watched him go right into his kennel and be happy in it. Eventually she was very good in the kennel. My husband came home for lunch every day to let her out. She potty trained emediately. She learned obedience well enough to walk her politely. She was a sweet and misunderstood puppy. The best thing we did for her in her life was to adopt Riley. They were best friends for a little over 10 years. They never faught either. After Riley died, she suddenly got old. She slept more, lost weight even though she ate the same, suddenly started showing symptoms of back and hip problems, could barely walk around the neighborhood and was slow about it, she was behind everyone else by the end of it. We could see how rapidly Molly was deteriorating, her head became sunken in, she was boney from muscle wasting, she could barely get up the stairs w/out assistance. We hoped that bringing a puppy into the house would brighten her spirits a little. And it did......for a while. Roxy gave her something to do, that didn't involve a lot of work. Molly helped raise lots of puppies, so it was like second nature to her. But then Roxy got bigger and was more of a challenge to play with, so Molly just started egnoring her. Roxy was 6 mos old when Molly died and she was a little bit lost without a big dog around. Molly was a symbol of my husband and my love and devotion. If we could get through raising a puppy like her, we could get through anything. To show my devotion to Molly and to thank her for the love braught into my life, I had a portrait of her tattoo'd on my left leg. That way she will be with me forever.

Molly has had a tough life. Being our first dog she didn't get consistant training. We call her our troubled child. But she never ceces to amaze me. She is always so happy. You always know when she is sick because she is so depressed. She also developes Mast Cell tumors all the time and has to have surgery to remove them about every 6 months. Our poor old lady. We've been very lucky that it has been 9 months as of Sep 2007 that she has been cancer free. I am always looking for lumps and bumps and poking at her. Molly loves to play in the morning with anything she can get her mouth around. She tosses it up and catches it. It's just a Miss Molly thing. It's quite cute, even if it is my socks!!BOL!!

Ever since the day I came home I've been daddy's little girl. I have always listened to him better than mom and that used to make mom sooo mad! I am a die hard Eagles fan. That's right pups.....football is the only sport for me! I even have my own Donavan Mcnabb jersey (their quarterback) and an Eagles Logo leash. I like to lay on the couch with dad while he watches and yells and screams at the tv when there is a game on. In our house, the NFL station is on all the time as soon as pre-season starts and doesn't stop until the Super Bowl. Being the first dog and daddy's litle girl, that gives me full right not to listen to mom whenever dad is in the room. That's just the rules.....of Miss Molly Girl at least!!

As of June 3, 2008 my mast cell cancer has come back. It is on my tendon on my back leg. Therefore it is not operable. At my age mom doesn't want to put me thru chemo or radiation. I will fight like the dickens and try to be around for my next birthday which is August 13th. Power of the paw!!!! I will make it and survive!!

The life of Miss Molly

One year without you.......

My dearest, dearest, sweet Molly girl,

You have been gone from my sight and my arms for one year today. But you haven't been gone from my heart and my soul. I think of you every day and wonder how you are doing at the Bridge.

You were our first dog. You taught us to love unconditionally. If it weren't for you, we probably would never have seen Riley and braught him home for you. My love for you will never die. When you took your last breath, a piece of my heart broke off, never to be fixed.

I love you Molly girl......

I miss you Molly girl.....

I wish you were here with me right now.......

One year.....One life time....



Take care of him.......

To my dearest Molly Golly Girl,

I know you are safe and happy up there with Bubba and all your Bridge pals. But, I miss you. I'm sorry I wasn't there for you like I should have been in the end. For the first time, I had to chose a human over you. My dad. I know you were fine, but after your first siezure........I asked God, "Why???? My dad is dying and now you take my dog from me?" I know it was you time. That's why I chose it for you. But it seems like I never even got a chance to mourn your death. Then.......dad died. Is he up there with you? I don't think he would have fun in Doggy Heaven. Are you at least watching out for him? I have to believe that you are. If I don't, I think I'll go crazy. I miss you so much. Your softest hair and ears. Your vet said hi to me the other day and I said I didn't have much use for him, now that you are gone. The other mutts are all so healthy. BTW......you taught Roxy well before you died. She is a total sock theif! She doesn't toss them like you used to, she just hides them all over the house! My dad didn't have many loved ones. Just me. And his little brother. I just wanted to ask you a favor my sweet love? Will you just check in on my dad from time to time? He would never think he needs it, but he does. And I know you are hovering over Sally's bed right now. She needs all of you Angel pups right now.
Your loving mama


Mom's newest tattoo

Mom just came home from getting her newest tattoo. And it's of me!! Nothin' says love like ink!

Ha! Ha! Now she's suck with me forever! And aparently, it was just as much of a pain as I was too. Literally........I could feel her pain while it was being done all the way up here!!!!!!!!

Mom is REALLY happy with it and so was the artist.

I'd write more, but frankly.....I'm tired from feeling all the PAIN.
