About a month ago she escaped from a bad home in a nearby town and made it to a home where a very kind lady rescued her- got her some vet care and groceries. I believe she saved the dog's life as the poor thing weighed less than 40 pounds and had lost a lot of her fur due to malnutrition. But the kind lady already had a dog and couldn't give this girl a forever home.
At the same time she was being rescued, I was in deep sorrow over the loss of my beloved beagle, Daisy. Daisy had been my rescued companion for the last seven years and had just passed away due to liver failure. My heart was broken. She had filled up so many lonely spots in my life and was irreplaceable.
But I did have room in my heart to love another dog in need of a friend, so last week into our home came Molly. She's been a real hoot so far. She's 65 (and still growing) pounds of slobbery, jumpy, chewy, wanna be lap dog- a mixture of lab and spaniel- all fun and smiles (yes, she smiles!) She's approximately 2 years old and is on a fast track course of basic obedience and manners. It took her two days to learn "potty outside" and just like that she was house trained. She's mastered "sit" and is working on "stay." We're on our way to a great life together!
