 Molly

Hi Shirley,

We just saw pictures of Jackson (Molly's "brother") and were inspired to send a success story of our own.

Molly has grown to 48 lbs and is still sweet and cuddly -- she follows us around the house, she sits on the couch with us and lays her head in our laps, and she showers us with constant kisses. One of our nicknames for Molly is "Thumper" because you can hear her tail thumping against the floor or the furniture every time you come near her, and especially when you scratch her belly. When we get home from work Molly greets us at the door with a toy in her mouth ready to play fetch or tug -- her favorite "people" games. But when we take Molly to the park, she is a terror: she instigates other dogs into a game of chase through any means necessary -- her dogwalkers tell us that Molly is especially fond of the fluffy dogs in her playgroup. She loves to play fetch and has a whole routine with her best friend Shady where they relay the ball back. Molly is also the first dog I've ever seen who plays "soccer" with her tennis balls.

Our biggest scare over the past year happened in June when Molly was scared away from my mom's house in Brookline and she embarked on a 3 day adventure camping out in Boston's Archidiocese Campus in Brighton. Those were the longest three days of my life -- I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, and I couldn't stop crying. But we were also relentless in our search for Molly and it paid off. Someone at the Archidiocese recognized her from the signs we posted and called us. She's a little shy with strangers and she must have been terrified to be so far from home, so she wouldn't let anyone come close enough to read her tags, but the people at the Archdiocese were kind enough to feed her and leave water for her. Molly doesn't seem to remember anything from her adventure and I think we're more traumatized than she is.

Molly has a network of people who love her and who can't imagine life without her -- my husband and I, our friends (who are also Molly's part-time caregivers), and her dog walkers.

We've attached a couple of pictures of Molly (her best friend Shady is napping with her in one of them).

p.s. If Jackson's parents are local, we'd love to arrange a "meeting" for Molly and Jackson. We were amazed by how much they still look alike.
