I'm so heartbroken. My best friend that I've known almost all of my life is gone.
She passed over the rainbow bridge today. I just can't believe I'll never see Molly ever again. Molly was only 9 years old. We used to walk almost every single day for YEARS! My mom and Miss Barbara, Molly's mom, are very dear friends. We were just pups when we met each other.
Molly was Barbara and Chris's first dog and they worshipped the ground she walked on. Molly was so loved and she was the Princess at her house just as I am at my house (well, I was until Mitch came along!)
Molly's dad Chris works long hours and he works 6 days a week and Sunday was Chris's day to walk Molly. Chris is so much fun. He calls me ChuckleHead!
When my dad was sick and hospitalized with all of his heart problems, mom had her good friend Barbara to lean on and she helped mom get through her days and months immensely! Molly and I would walk side by side and listen to the two of them chat up a storm. When mom had to spend days in the hospital with dad, it was Barbara that came to let me out to go pee and she would feed me and sometimes she'd take me back to her house and I played and stayed with Molly till mom came and picked me up way after dark!
Once dad has his heart transplant and he was strong enough to walk with me and mom again, I didn't see Molly as often but we always remained very good friends. Chris and Barbara were always there for us. They were life savers for me, mom and dad!
And now their precious girl is gone and they're hurting so much and so are we! Mitch has met Molly two times - once this past Sunday on our walkie and yesterday mom brought Mitch out to do his peepee's and Molly was on her way home - the last leg of her walkie. We only lived doors away from each other.
She was a beautiful Golden Retriever - always the lady, although she did love to walk in her puddles and bark at the ducks and geese at the pond on our usual walkie route.
I'll miss you so much Molly! No one can ever take your place.
We'll always be friends forever.
Godspeed Molly! I love you!
I'll look for your star shining brightly tonight!
