My Baby Girl Molly, My Heart Hound


Recommended Posts

Molly, my baby girl, my heart hound, born 04/01/92, NGA name Inky Flake, went peacefully to The Bridge today 02/15/05 at 11:50AM. Molly was just fine on Friday, a little tight in the neck area, but otherwise ok when Dr. Robin came to do her adjustment. By Sunday night she was not feeling like eating much and was having some difficulty lowering herself to lay down. On Monday she was having trouble with her rear legs, it was like overnight she began to waste away. Her vet gave her 40 mg injection of steroids, we both were thinking either she now had a tumor in her spine or she had lumbosacral stenosis, if it was the LS the steroids would help. She was also on pain meds, torbutrol and another stronger drug. Her vet and Jim and I agreed that it would not be in Molly's best interest to put her through x-rays or other testing since none of that would change the outcome, and if the steroids didn't help, then it was not the LS, but a tumor. By this morning she was getting worse and we knew we had to let her go. She was very stressed up until the last 15 minutes as I held her she began to relax and became peaceful, the panic was gone from her eyes. She went to the Bridge on her soft bed with her head in my lap while Jim and I stroked her and told her what a good girl she was and that she could rest now. Molly was our baby for just a couple of weeeks less then 10 years. We were so fortunate to have her with us for so long, she had her first cancer diagnosis 2 1/2 years ago, so we were truly blessed to have had her with us, but to not have her right now seems unbearable. Molly has gone to join Maggie, Charlie, Casey and all the others who were waiting at The Bridge. I hope by now she has also met up with her friend Magic. All of these precious souls we are allowed to love and care for are such beautiful gifts from God, and the spooky babies are an extra special gift. My baby girl Molly, I love you so much and you will always be with me.

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.

I've been weepy all day. Molly is such a sweet girl and was such a good girl when she came to vacation at my house. I think she liked the senior home :) She was never any trouble. I bet she's chasing Magic and it's got to be a great race!


I know how much she is loved by you. I know your pain.




Love you Molly girl! :f_white
