Memories of Molly Gunn
Let me start at the beginning of an amazing adventure with my beautiful Molly. I had decided that I wanted and needed a puppy to give my love to and went online in search for English Springer Spaniel puppies. There was a litter born but not ready to go to their forever home. So out of a litter I saw Molly. She had the most beautiful eyes. The kind that you could look at and just know all about her personality. She is black and white but on her back, which was black, she had a small white shaped heart. I contacted the breeder and had her reserved and two weeks later went to pick her up. Upon arrival and after speaking to the breeder, she released all the puppies to run outside. If you ever experienced this then you know what I mean when I say it was fun. They ran in all directions BUT Molly. She ran to me. When I saw that white heart running to me I just couldn't believe it. It was then that I truely can say, "it was love at first sight." On the ride home I asked her what she wanted to be named. I said Lucy, she turned her head. I said Molly and she licked my cheek. So I said, "Molly is your name from here on." As time went by she became my shadow. In the house, everywhere I went, she was at my feet. At times I had to go places where I knew I could take her with me and she became my co-pilot sitting on the passenger seat looking straight ahead: I sometimes wondered if people thought I had a statue on the front seat with me. At sad times she would put her head on my lap and just petting the top of her head made things better. She was my best friend and knew all my secrets. I would talk to her and I do believe she understood everything I said. If we were outside and I said let's go back inside, she would turn and head towards the door. There was a closeness that I felt with her that I didn't have with any of the dogs in my past. I miss her very much. She was very special to me. When she was diagnosed with cancer we all gave her so much love. I don't think she knew she was sick. She was always so happy. That stub of a tail would never stop wagging. I may be sad now because she isn't here but I think of other times, good times, times when I knew what she was going to do next and they make me smile. Plus the day she left me, she also came to me in a dream that night, so I know her spirit is still with me. Molly will never be forgotten. She took a piece of my heart with her the day she left. I love you Molly and always will... I hold you in my heart... I miss you...

My beautiful Molly, I went home for Thanksgiving with the family. Your toys are sitting there and my thoughts of you playing with them came to me. It was also snowing. As I type this I am recalling how you played in the snow and it brings a smile to my face. And of course you also had your turkey dinner which you loved and it was gone very fast. I have so many wonderful memories of my sweet Molly. I miss you...

Molly, today is New Years Eve 2018. Tomorrow will be the start of a new year. Will I see the earth go around the sun again or will I find you and hug you? We will see as time goes by. You have a new sister who has come to live with me. Her name is Alice. She is young, playful and full of energy. You can never be forgotten. My beautiful baby girl Molly, I won't compare her to you and will give her love just as I had with you and hopefully the day will come when she also will be my best friend. But that doesn't mean you aren't in my heart cause you always forever will be here with me. I miss you...

My precious friend, it's spring time and the flowers are budding. You are in my thoughts always. Soon the days will get hotter. Made plans to go to the shore this summer for one week and again thoughts of you came to mind. I remembered the last time we had gone and how I just opened the door and you ran to the back of the house to do your business and came running back into the house. You have given me so many memories. It seems that no matter what I do thoughts of you come rushing into my head of what you had done in the past. How could I ever forget someone as precious as you? You will never be forgotten my sweet baby girl. I miss you...

Your 10th birthday will be here in a couple of days. As I type, Charlie came to lick my hand. I know he also misses you very much and he's so use to hearing the background music that I know his thoughts are also with you. His birthday was on the 4th and I remembered how we celebrated both of you with a cake and many presents. It was silly but so much fun. I shared eight wonderful birthdays with you and how I wish there were many more but regardless I am so very thankful for those birthdays we did share. I look at my pictures of those cakes that said, "Happy Birthday Charlie and Molly" and now it is only cupcakes. Your new sisters did enjoy them. Alice ate hers very quickly. Stella took a bite and crumbs fell out of her mouth and all over the floor but she ate them very quickly before Alice could get to them. My darling shadow, not a day passes that I don't think of you. I miss you...

Molly, it's summer now. Soon it will be one year that you had to leave. I dread that coming day. Time flys by so very fast. It seems like only last week when you left. I think about you and the connection we had all the time. I will forever love you. I miss you...

Today is July 3rd, 2019 and the town had their fireworks tonight. I started thinking how you were so afraid of the sounds and how you cuddle next to me and just shake until it was over. In a couple of weeks I and the family will be at the shore. Same house as before. I know that when I let your sisters, Alice and Stella and Charlie out into the yard that only I will see the forth paw prints that belong to you. Thank you for coming to visit me in my dream. You look absolutely so beautiful. Huggs and kisses to you, my friend. I miss you...

Today is Sept. 3rd 2019. Well, it is one year since you left and yes that day my thoughts were with you the entire day. It was like time was suspended and the event was relived. Tears did come to my eyes but I also thought of good times which brought on a smile instead. But a day doesn't go by that you aren't in my thoughts. You were so very special to me and I miss you, my special friend, my shadow, I love you now and forever...

Today is Dec. 18th 2019. Christmas will soon be upon us and so much to do but thoughts of you come to my mind constantly. Remembering how you liked to open your gifts only to play with them for five minutes and you wanted to see what else you had gotten, just like a little kid. They and so many others are precious memories and will stay with me until the day comes that I take my last breath and see you once more. Huggs and kisses my special friend, I love you and miss you...

January 17, 2020. Another year without you by my side has come. Time passes so quickly anymore. Charlie will be 12 this coming year and I can see him slowing down in his movements and wonder how long it will be before he joins you. I know you both will be so very happy when that day does comes. My beautiful little girl, I love you and you know that I miss you...


All good things Must come to an end,
And today I said goodbye To my very best friend.

The house will seem so still, Now that she's gone.
There'll be no one to wake me up To go outside at dawn.

Her bowls will sit there empty, But I'll leave them in their place.
No more will water drip down From her thirsty, furry face.

There'll be no one to bark When the paper boy comes by.
It's going to be one of those moments When I'm sure I'll want to cry.

But I know the day will come, When my tears will finally fade,
And I'll focus on the good times, and all the fetch we played.

So until the day that we Can be together once again,
I'll keep your memory alive 'Til we meet in Heaven, my friend.
