Memories of Molly
My dad and I found Molly at the pound, on March 11, 1995. She licked my face, and I knew she was the one for me. Molly rode in my truck like she was born to it. She was already trained, knew how to use the doggie door, took a drink from the toilet and jumped right up onto my bed within 5 minutes of coming through my front door. She plainly was happy to have found a home with me. What a joy she was. The vet said she was a lab/border collie mix, and I know mixed in there too was a big heart, lots of smiles, and unconditional love for me, no matter what. The last thing she did before she drifted away from me was to lick my hand, as if to tell me everything was ok. I miss her so very much.

9/4/07 - 2 weeks ago yesterday, Molly tamale, and I sure do miss you. Have you seen Miss Kelly yet? She probably won't hiss at you now, such a goofy bird she was, and so jealous when I brought you home. She did mellow, though, and learned to love you, too. You're back home here now, in time for Labor Day. I know you remember our Labor Day campouts!!! You and Jake have the place of honor in the livingroom, on Grandmother's precious tea cart...I know she's ok with that, in fact, today is her birthday! Wish her a happy one for me, ok? Love, Mom

9/17/07 - You've been away now for 4 weeks. I still see you at the fence watching me leave in the truck, and your little seat belt is still in your spot on the front seat. The weather is finally cooling down, your favorite time of year. Your chair is still by the firepit in the back yard, you always liked to sit in the chair or in my lap, though you were a bit large for a lap dog, and be warmed by the fire and enjoy the peaceful nights. The quail and bunnies still wait for me in the morning, but nothing's the same without you, my friend. xoxox, mom.

9/19/07 - Tomorrow marks one month since you left for the bridge. I thought it would get easier, but I still look for you at the door when I come home. When I lock the door at night I see you grabbing your snowman and running down the hall to jump in bed. All your toys were called 'snowman', even your tennis ball, which is still against the wall by the back door. Please share your toys with all your new friends, little one, and know you are loved and missed more than I can ever say. xoxoxo, mom

10/16/07 - Well, today is my birthday, and it is a sad day without you. It was a nice day spent with Dad, who misses you, too. In a couple days you will have been gone for 2 months. I miss you still, and not a day goes by that I don't think of you and smile and/or cry. Cousin Cathy lost her beloved Jasmine a couple days ago, so look for her and remember to share your toys and show her around, ok? xoxoxox, mom

11/13/07 - Hi, sweet pea. As you must know, Miss Ellie came to live here almost 2 weeks ago. I certainly had no idea I would have another dog so soon after you left. She needed a home, as her moms had their hands full with 2 other dogs and she needed special care. Ellie is a border collie, with a lot of your traits, but she was badly abused as a pup, and has a bad shoulder - like me - and is quite timid. She was nursed back to health by the ladies who gave her to me, and they did a great job. She has not touched anything of yours, except your tennis ball, and has decided to stay for awhile. I still miss you so, but she makes it easier to come home, and makes me smile. You'd like her, too, Molly tamale...xoxoxo, mom

12/19/07 - Tomorrow marks 4 months since you left for the bridge. The Christmas decorations are up, and your Christmas picture is up, too. I imagine all will miss your Christmas card this year, the tradition ends, but I certainly have a number of entertaining photos of you in your Christmas hat! I already miss you tearing open your present on Christmas morning...I hope you have lots to open from all your new friends at the bridge.....xoxox, mom

12/25/07 - Merry Christmas, my dear friend. I miss you so this day, but I know you are happy and enjoying all your new toys and friends. I sent my 'after Christmas' cards last evening. Your silly hat and 'I can't believe she made me wear this damned hat again' expression will be missed. Be well, and rest in peace on this blessed Christmas day...xoxox, mom

01/14/08 - Happy New Year, little one! A bit late, but I know you are ok with that....You are missed by all, your Christmas funny face made quite a few folks smile; many dear friends told me so. I hope you are enjoying your new flowers! xoxox, mom

02/15/08 - Sweet Pea, it is raining so much lately, I know how much you hated getting your feet wet. I know you are warm and dry and healthy, and that brings me comfort. I miss you, little one. xoxox, mom

3/11/08 - Happy Birthday, dear friend. Of course I didn't forget! I know you have lots of presents to open, remember to share! Have you met Trixie yet? She arrived befoe you did, and tells her dad it is really a great place. She says angels give good belly rubs, but it isn't quite the same. Enjoy your special day, and know you are always in my thoughts. xoxoxo, mom

3/23/08 - Happy Easter, Sweet Pea! I'll leave your Easter Tree up for awhile, it looks cute. I'll bet you finally are enjoying chocolate Easter eggs...I wouldn't share them with you here, but I'll bet you can have as many as you want now, and not get sick from them!! Eat up, little one, and have a few Peeps, too! Run and play and have fun....I miss you. xoxoxo, mom

4/17/08 - The year is flying by, Miss Molly! The grass is silly-high in the back yard, I remember you used to hate the weed eater....me too! Getting warmer, your blankets are off the bed and back into the closet until winter. Wasn't the same without you this cold winter, but Ellie did her best. She's quite respectful of your things, and still won't let me take her picture. Did you warn her about having to wear a Santa hat if she got too comfortable getting her picture taken????
Miss you...xoxoxo, mom

5/25/08 - Another month almost gone, my friend. You're in my thoughts as always, and I miss you so. You're in good company up there on this Memorial Day weekend....xoxoxo, mom

6/14/08 - Well, it's hot today, 111 or something like that. I know you don't miss that, in your heavy black coat. Stay nice and cool my little friend, and say hi to mom....she left us 8 years ago today and I know she would love to visit with you! xoxoxo, mom

7/17/08 - Busy times, little one. My art is selling, and our new business is taking shape. God has blessed me with so much, especially all the wonderful memories I have of you. My goodness, it's almost a year since you left for the bridge. I miss you, pup. xoxox, mom

8/20/08 - Dear sweet Molly. You left me 1 year ago today. I know you're there, healthy and smiling, and know it is the best for you, but it doesn't make me miss you any less, my friend. Share your toys and dust off your Santa hat...Christmas will be here before you know it! I miss you, sweet pea. xoxoxo, mom

10/15/08 - Well, Sweet Pea, it's been lovely and cool, chilly enough to get the penguins out...where did the year go? I know your happy, especially now that you can eat all the candy you want for Halloween! Tomorrow's my birthday, wish you could celebrate with me. Miss you, sweetie. xoxoxo, mom

12/7/08 - My goodness, where did November go? I know you enjoyed your turkey. Christmas decorations are going up today, I miss your funny pictures. That tradition went away when you left, sweet pea. I've decorated your spot, too...hope you like it! Added some Christmas music for you, too!!

12/25/08 - Merry Christmas, sweet pea. It's cold and rainy, I know you're warm and happy and playing with all your friends. It's been a wonderful year, and I am blessed with dear friends and family and a prosperous business. You must be up there whispering in God's ear...Miss Ellie is curled up at my feet watching over me, and she'll have none of the Santa hat nonsense. You trained her well! xoxoxox, mom

01/01/09 - Happy New Year, pup!! Your darling Christmas pics are wrapped and put away until later this year...celebrate 2009, and know you are missed and loved. xoxo, mom

04/17/09 - Oh my goodness, pup!!! I have not forgotten about you, I remembered your birthday in March, just didn't stop by...I know you understand!!! The weather is lovely, the time of year you like. Scamper is there now, he's my friend's cat, I know you'll take good care of him!! xoxox, mom

06/14/09 - Hi, sweet pea! Been such a cool June, I know your black coat isn't a bother now! Planted a veggie garden, more careful now with my health since the diagnosis...I know God will heal me! Ellie is very healthy and watches over me, as do you. Say hi to Mom, been 9 years since she left us. You are missed, my friend. xoxox, mom

07/26/09 - Sticky hot, my friend! I know you have some new friends to play with now, don't be too frisky around those horses, they're much bigger than you! God bless you, my dear friend. xoxox, mom

08/20/09 - My dear Molly...you're gone 2 years now, and it still seems like yesterday. As you know, my darling father, who loved you so, went home to be with God a week ago today. I know he stopped by and picked up his darling hunting dog Jude, and little Moose, too. The rest of the gang were waiting for him already, as I imagine mom picked them all up earlier. I hope you saw him, and he is ok...I miss him so, my heart is broken. Miss Ellie is at my side constantly, she understands...God Bless you, my friend. xoxoxo, mom

11/18/09 - I'm not doing very well without dad, but am adjusting, I guess. Not looking forward to Thanksgiving or Christmas, but I know you are - lots of treats for you, my friend! I think of you often, and miss you still....God Bless you, sweet pea! xoxox, mom

12/14/09 - Christmas is almost here, my friend. I hope you enjoy your treats, and all the stuffed animals you can handle! Thanksgiving was sad for me, but we made it through. Enjoy your tree...God Bless you. xoxoxo, mom

02/22/10 - Well. It's a new year and a lot of changes, but life goes on. Ellie has picked up on your trick with the rain. Did you tell her? Miss you, sweet pea. xoxox, mom

04/04/10 - Happy Easter, sweetie! No, I didn't forget your birthday last month, I know you had fun. Take good care of Bon Ami, his mom really misses him.... xoxox, mom

06/25/10 - Hi sweet pea! Well, it is sure summer now. Adjusting to many changes, but life goes on, and my memories of you bring me many smiles. Play nice and share your toys, ok? xoxoxo mom

08/20/10 - Gosh, my friend. You've been gone 3 years now....I do miss you, and hope you are happy and having lots of fun. I came across some pics of you today, darling as always. xoxoxo, mom

11/15/10 - Well, wrapped up the final paperwork for dad's stuff today....I miss him and you so much. Cooler here now, your penguins are out and ready to keep me warm. Ellie says woof, she takes good care of me. xoxoxo, mom

12/23/10 - Thanksgiving came and went, now Christmas. How fast time goes now. We still miss your goofy xmas cards, pup. Merry Christmas, sweat pea. xoxoxox, mom

08/8/11 - Summer almost over, been a hot one. Miss Ellie is better, valley fever has settled in her bones but it is treatable. She takes good care of me, like you did. You left 4 years ago in August, and then Daddy left 2 years ago in August. I hate August. Hugs to you and big kisses, sweet pea. xoxoxox, mom

08/27/11 - All is well, my friend. Thinking about you. Ellie is much better, and says 'woof'! xoxoxox and hugs, sweet pea.

04/01/13 - Little Molly, we're almost packed and ready to go! Your chair is still by the fire pit in the back yard, and the bunnies and quail still play back there, too. So many new things to get used to, but your memory and your goofy ways are still with me, and will go along to my new home. I promised you a big adventure. It's April already, spring is in the air, and this year we'll have snow. I would have loved seeing you play in the snow...Miss Ellie will be wearing her jacket! ....xoxox mom
