You came to me in the Fall of '09 to foster and you were in such sad shape. Matted fur, teeth broken off or missing, a heart murmur and other problems. With love and care, in less than three months time your coat was full, your eyes sparkled and the little character in you came out. You had some health issues, like a heart that was showing early congestive heart failure, but with medication, food and daily walks it barely bothered you.
Then suddenly, in the last month, what I thought was a problem with your heart wound up being on that fateful night I let you go an insidious disease known as cancer. You have no idea how difficult it was for me to let you go and how I have been crying and second guessing my decision. You were only 7 years old and I was hoping to have a few good years with you... Yes, I adopted you Ms. Molly Mooo and made you a part of our family.
There is a big hole in my heart today but another paw print for even though we were only together 10 months, I felt like you had been my little character for life.
God speed Molly, and look for Penny, Cassie, Maddie and Hannah...these are my girls that have passed before you! May you all be happy and playing until we meet again!
Dad, take care of my girls. It's been 10 years since you passed and not a day goes by that I don't think of you!
