Now, on a sad note, I want to tell everyone that my adorable little cousin Mollye the Shih Tzu – one of my auntie Carol’s two doggies, went to the Bridge quietly in her sleep this past Saturday night. It’s how we all would like to leave this world – sleeping in innocence and peace. Mollye as I’ve told you all before was a rescue pup…….she had spent all her previous life in a puppy mill having babies – babies she’d get to have with her for a brief time before they’d be taken away and she’d become pregnant over and over and over and live in her small cage alone. It was a terrible life – one we’ve all heard about before with puppy mills. Mollye had never had any vet care but Aunt Carol did everything to get Mollye into the best health she could have in spite of having to have most of her teeth removed due to infection, never having previously been diagnosed with a heart condition and a collapsed trachea making it hard for her to breathe, nor treating the beginning of her glaucoma. She’d also never really learned how to run – even walking was difficult but Carol was patient and Mollye’s new brother, Toby the Shih Tzu, was too – taking Mollye under his wing and showing her the ropes! Mollye enjoyed freedom to be a dog……a happy dog…….running with the wind in her ears and face – chasing her brother – giving her brother wonderful tongue baths (!), and learning to totally adore her Mommy. She was GLUED to Carol…..she was so very smart and understood so many things above all else she knew she was safe forever.
Her glaucoma had gone unchecked and undiagnosed for so long and eventually she had to have one of her eyes removed………..Carol did everything she could to keep the progression of the disease from causing total blindness including help from a canine eye specialist but the excellent care and treatment was not able to STOP the glaucoma – it just slowed things down so we believe she had minimal sight – but even that didn’t slow her down! She knew her house so well – every corner and couch but especially she knew how to find her Mommy’s lap!
She just went to bed one night and when my Aunt Carol got up the next morning Mollye was still there…………………she’d hopped on a rainbow and gone to the Bridge………….where all the other angels are. Mollye was a dear and sweet girl. My Mom loved her too……a whole lot. I even forgave Mom for bringing Mollye and Toby’s smells home from her visits with them! So I also loved them…………..and all of us will remember her journey over the Bridge every Christmas from now until forever.
