An Update

Thank you to everyone who commented and e-mailed about Mollie-dog. Your words were very helpful to me.

The latest report is that Mollie-dog has settled in at her new home without a problem. B's dad's house has tile throughout, so Mollie-dog is enjoying sleeping on the cold tile during the heat of the day. His house is also out in the middle of nowhere, and there are deer and raccoons and all sorts of other creatures for Mollie-dog to sniff around after.

I think she'll be enjoying her retirement years.

We're still adjusting. It seems strange not to hear her collar jingling or her nails ticking on the floor. The girls are handing things well. We haven't had too many bouts of tears, but we have had requests for a visit. We'll make that happen in the next week or so.

In the meantime, Grey Kitty, the stray who adopted us three years ago and who lives on our front porch, is getting lots of extra love, which she's not sure she appreciates.

But I bet little Grey Kitty would LOVE to come in the house now that there's not a big dog to chase her out.
I'll have to bring that up with the kids while I'm there.

Poor Grey Kitty! Hopefully she'll adjust. Nice that Mollie-dog has a good retirement home.

That's tough about Mollie-dog. I am glad my son will be older as my older dog ages, and will know to leave him alone. You made a horribly hard decision, but the beat one for all.

I bet your kitty is in heaven right now with all the extra attention.

BTW- the American Girl Doll situation is something my mother deals with exclusively. I would never spend the money on those dolls ever. It's grandma's job if she wants it

So good she's settled in, she looked like a lovely dog. I don't know how you do it with all those kids, dogs, cats . . .

I'm late to the story. Sorry about the household change with Molli-dog's departure. Thankfully there's another around to get the extra love and help you all get used to the absence.

*big hugs*

I'm so sorry she had to move - but for what it's worth, probably a great decision. We had a similar problem with our dog right after our first baby was born and he is SO happy with my sister and no kids.

So glad the dog is settling in and happy with her new home. Be interesting to see how the kitty reacts to all the attention
