The Story of Molson

by Michele Buchko
(Hamilton, NJ USA)

We rescued you from a family who couldn't take care of you. You were my best and only friend when we moved 40 minutes away from my family. You were stubborn and ripped my house apart when I went to work. You scaled my six foot fence to get to the neighbor's house to play with the dog. But yet you won my heart for all the years to come.

Then we found out you had a heart problem. You were ok, then at age 10 it got worse. After thousand of dollars in vet bills, we could no longer save you.

I loved you with all my heart, my precious dog. I will miss your smile your hugs and your presence. Rest in peace. I hope there is a doggy heaven, and I hope you are running with dogs, playing like you were young again. I will miss you, and I will see you on the other side.

To Michele re Molson

Michele, my heart goes out to you. It is a very sad time in your life, no doubt. Molson was obviously a special dog to you, your one and only best friend, from what you wrote. I liked the part about Molson scaling your 6-ft fence to play with his doggie friend. Wow!!! A very happy and mighty strong dog Molson was!

Michele, my deepest sympathy .... You are hurting now. Grief is not easy for all of us. It is a process that we must go through with the loss of our loved ones. I do hope though that, in good time, your heartache will ease and help you to move on. It is still too soon though.

I too, lost my "Tiger" in June and I don't think I've ever felt so much heartache in all my life. For a dog? Yes, for a dog. It's unbelievable. So, I know what you and all the other owners on this website are going through. Talk about truly heart-rending!

I still find myself asking God why He put these faithful and loving pets into our lives, only to take them away in such few short years. But then again, I/we must learn not to ever question God. He knows best and there are things to which we will never know the answer.

Keep as busy as possible or else you could get into a very bad depression, like I did. I found that by learning to be grateful for all the good times that Tiger and I had, I felt a whole lot better. No one lives forever, and as soon as we can come to terms with that, the better for us.

Molson will always live on in your memories. You will always love him and he, too, will always love you, wherever he is.

Again, my deepest and heartfelt sympathy. Peace and love!

It sounds like Molson was your forever dog. I have one, Gus. He is now twelve and that is getting up there for a black Lab. There will never be another one quite like him and I cherish the time left with him. I swear I think I love him more every single day. My husband said he thinks Gus "pines" for me when I am not home.
