It is with a heavy heart that I write these words. This morning my parents and sister said goodbye to their beloved Molly Dog. Despite years of medical issues (Addison's Disease, hip dysplasia, severe arthritis, etc.) Molly was peppy, spirited, and bright and brought much love to my family. She served as a consistent, dependable companion to my sister, brother, Mom, and Dad through some challenging life experiences; was a loyal guard dog protecting her home from anyone who dared to knock or ring the doorbell; she ensured my mom never talked on the phone for too long; loved Cheez-Its, Goldfish, and anything else that fell on the floor; and she always made sure Max and Annie knew who was boss. My kids and my nephews have never known my parents house without Molly, she has been there since they were born and they will sorely miss her.
Molly, you were such a good girl, you'll be missed terribly but there is nothing better than knowing that you are no longer suffering and that your soul is in peace.
