View Full Version : Molly passed away last night

31st May 2009, 12:14 PM
Molly passed away last night at the age of 9.
She was a beautiful gentle dog who arrived 18 months ago to my sister courtesy of Karlin and Cavalier rescue.
She was an ex breeding bitch who adapted wonderfully to her new life as a beloved couch potato.She had a double heart murmur and despite this lived life with great enthusiasm as if her previous life had never existed.
She seemed fine yesterday. She stayed indoors yesterday in the heat and my mother was looking after her all day.She went home later that night with James and Kate and fell asleep around midnight.Apart from some extra panting there was nothing to suggest that she was in distress.
She was found in her basket at 2 am having gone to the bridge.

:hug:so sorry to hear of your loss take comfout in knowing you made
her last mouths happy.

She lived with my sister Kate,her finacÚ James and their little boy.Molly only stayed with me for 8 weeks although I saw her almost every three weeks.So she's their sad loss- not mine,although I was very fond of her.
They're very upset today as she was their first family dog. We all adored her as she had the most loving and kind soul.It's hard to describe how calm and serene she was.
When she first came into rescue she'd never been indoors,was afraid of her own shadow but within weeks she'd blossomed into the ultimate housedog.
But she'd had a very happy and content final 18 months,knowing what it was to be wanted and loved,just for herself.

so sorry to hear of her passing.
As sad as your sister's family is, I guess they must get some comfort knowing she lived fully in their care and passed peacefully without any intervention. As dog owners and lovers, when the end comes, isn't it what we all hope for?

I am so sorry to here this news but she knew that she was loved :hug:
When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not there to see;
The sun will rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
Remembering how I'd lay my head, In your lap that special way.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you.
And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name, and petted me with her hand.
She said my place was ready in Heaven far above

:hug:I'm so sorry to read that Molly has gone to the bridge :( it is wonderful that she was able to know real love and home comfort with your sister and the rest of the family but so sad that she had so little time with you all. My thoughts are with you all at this sad time :hug:

Hi Sins -- Am just online again after the holiday weekend -- so very sorry to hear this. :(

As Sins knows, Molly was a breeding dog from a club breeder who has sold many pet puppies to Irish and US homes. Supposedly the usual much loved family pet (as stated on the website) she actually lived outside (because she supposedly preferred to) and had hideously infected ears, was filthy and timid. Her heart issues had never been picked up. You have to wonder if a vet actually ever looked at this dog.

She was transformed in the care of Sins and her sister, and they got her ears sorted.

I met Molly a few months ago when she went along with Sins and family when we were swapping around another rescue dog. She was a really lovely, sweet girl.

I am so glad she had this time in a decent, warm, caring home where she was kept clean, had a warm basket, and got her health issues seen to properly.

Thanks so much to your sister and her family for their care for Molly. My thoughts are with them; I am so sorry for their loss. Thankfully, it sounds like she went peacefully, and in the home where she was loved.

Molly was a lovely pet, she got on well with my son, very gentle.
she was nervous when we received her from sinead. it didn't take her too long to settle down on our couch.

:d*g: molly had trouble with her ears when we got her, they were very bad, the vet cleaned them out and checked her out. we knew about her heart murmours, her time was good here.

Condolances to you and your sister
