Yesterday we had to make the difficult decision to let our golden retriever, Molly, cross the rainbow bridge. I'm sad and miss her so very much! All our animals have something special about them, and Molly was no exception. Molly loved everyone she ever met, both human, canine or feline. They all loved her in return. Another special thing about Molly is that she's the only dog I've ever known to have a "boyfriend". Our pekingese, Riley, was her boyfriend. He was completely devoted and always protective of her. He didn't even want to go for walks with me because he didn't want to be away from her. He got away from me once when we were out walking, and he started running towards home. I know he wanted to get back to "his" Molly. I'm worried about Riley and how he's going to adapt to life without her, but I know if he could understand he'd know that she's in a better place and he'd be glad that she's not struggling to walk anymore and isn't in any pain.
There's a very empty spot in my heart right now. I'm filled with sadness and have shed many tears. Molly wasn't a pet - she was a very special part of our family. I'm glad that the last words she heard from us were "I love you". Molly...I miss you!!!!!
