Sarah here. This Saturday, March 13, is Molly O'Mally's one year anniversary here at Brandt Drive Home for the Visually Impaired! I should have known life with her would be....um......."interesting" as it was FRIDAY the 13th when we met!
Seriously, she is a great little dog - friendly, affectionate and a real trooper. Other than her sassy, LOUD, old-lady-who's-smoked-three-packs-a-day-for-fifty-years-bark....she has been absolutely delightful to have around. She never leaves my side (can't remember the last time I went to the bathroom by myself) and her #1 favorite spot is on my lap.
Yes, she's had her health issues this year, and I'd be lying if I said I'd rather pay vet bills than go on vacation or treat myself to that motorcycle I keeping saying I'm going to get before I'm fifty. However, some things are just more important.
I suppose Hank (who never minces words) sums it up best: "Yeah, sure.....she's old an' she's ugly an' she smells like pee an' she's got a big mouth, but gosh dang it.....I kinda LIKE her!".
Molly deserves a lot of credit. She reminds me time and time again that seniors (both canine AND human) have a lot to offer. They've "been there, done that" and love you with life experience that a young dog just can't match.
Here's to you, Mol Bol. If I ever get that motorcycle, there's a sidecar with your name on it!
