Look out doggy heaven…Molly has arrived!!
We said good-bye to our Molly this weekend. Anyone who knew Molly will understand what I mean when I say it was with mixed emotions, but much harder than we imagined it would be! Molly has challenged our patience many, many times in her 14 years and to say she caused much frustration on many occasions would be an understatement…but despite her size she filled the house, and anywhere she was, with her personality, her antics and her enthusiasm! There aren’t too many out there that exuded her joy of life and joy of meeting people the way she did, and had the smarts to pull it off…but it was always on Molly’s terms, obedience wasn’t a big word in her vocabulary. In retrospect I realize that Molly had many life lessons to teach us… such as greet everyone, whether you know them or not, with utter excitement, no matter how many times someone tells you to stop, bounce off the walls if that’s what you feel like doing…if you want something, keep asking for it till you get it, or keep digging till you find it…if it’s edible (in your opinion) and within your reach, eat it, shoe polish, lip gloss, underwear, someone else’s chocolate cake….if you’re not hurting anyone or anything, and especially if no one’s home, your place is wherever you choose it to be, the view was better from the top of the table…if you are excited about doing something, show it!...be the best cuddler ever, and you will be forgiven for almost anything…give lots of gentle kisses that say I’m not mad at you…why should you be mad at me, life is meant to be fun, live it! And one of the greatest gifts Molly gave us was to get us up every morning and out the door for a walk…rain or shine or snow…+30 degrees or -30 degrees, doesn’t matter, it is the perfect way to start the day!
As big as your heart was for life Molly girl…you wore it out….

i still remember the day bunni (originally ronnie row) became a part of our family – she was 6 years old, sassy, and full of life. after about a month, we all developed an unbreakable bond with her; she loved to play outside, go for car rides, and go for walks. as a dog instinct, she wanted to protect her family but unfortunately picked on animals much larger than her, including deer. she had been trampled many times, and even lost an eye in one of the disputes – but that never stopped her from enjoying life. fast forward to 2014, we could all see that her hips were beginning to bother her and she was starting to lose her hearing. when she had her 14th birthday, we could all see that she was struggling. she was my baby; the thought of putting her down was very difficult. january 29th, 2016 was bunni’s appointment to be put to sleep – i spent every last moment with her (i even gave her some red velvet cake). my mom contacted our family friend karin, from halo pet aftercare & pet cremation, who met us at the armstrong veterinary clinic. bev from the the armstrong vet clinic was absolutely amazing in handling our situation. karin overall made this experience a lot less painful than i had anticipated. i was reassured knowing that bunni would be cared for and surrounded with love through every step of her afterlife. thank you ever so much karin – i will never be able to fully express my gratitude and appreciation for such a wonderful and heartfelt experience. rip bunni } 2001-2016
Don't think of her as gone away-
her journey has just begun.
Life holds many facets,
the Earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting from
the sorrows and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days, no months or years.
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
For nothing loved is ever lost
And she was loved so much.

Your favourite chair is vacant now...
No eager purrs to greet me.
No softly padded paws
to run ecstatically to meet me.
No coaxing rubs nor plaintive cry
Will say it's time for feeding.
I've put away your bowl, and all the things
You won't be needing;
But I will miss you little friend,
For I could never measure
The happiness you brought me,
The comfort and the pleasure.
