In Memory ~ Molly, we miss you.

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive. Gilda Radner

My friendship with Mitzi was like the friendship that many children have with their pets. My mother and father thought it was "good for me" to have a dog for a companion. Well it was good for me, but it was only many years after she died that I began to understand how good it was, and why. Fred Rogers

Children and dogs are as necessary to the welfare of the country as Wall Street and the railroads. Harry S Truman

If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans. James Herriot

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. Roger Caras knows not its own depth until the hour of separation. Kabil Gibran


  1. Molly had those eyes that seem to be looking at you with love and total trust and devotion and the "I'm checking it all out and taking it all in" sort of feeling. What a wonderful companion and "family member." Celebrate your memories in tribute to her.

  2. Oh, Linda, this was just beautiful and brought tears to my eyes! Our beloved Plato and Willie have been gone now for so many years, but they were part of our family for 17 and 14 years, and I miss them both still!

  3. This brings back my dear Ellie. She came into our lives late in hers, but every day she was with us was joyful! (And I had a Willie, but he was an East Texas scamp. Still, I loved him even when he ate the tomato plant I'd replanted eight times. It was a war of wills and Willie won.I hadn't realized how appropriately he was named.)
