At around 2:00 a.m this morning Molly finally passed away, and she did it at home. She was getting so bad Thursday that I thought I was going to wake up to her gone Friday, but she kept hanging on. I think she knew DH and I had made the decision final to take her in Monday and she was determined not to go like that. Molly had so much fight in her, she might have been a mutt breed but her heart and soul was all Husky and she was determined to do it her way. The last two times we thought we were going to have to put her down, she would perk up immediately and I thought maybe she was just going through some rough time but now I know she was just determined not to be taken in and put down in a cold room, in a place she hasn't had the greatest memories in over the past few months. It still doesn't feel real, I just don't want to believe that she is gone. I was almost 12 years old when she found me, she was 7 months old, back in '99 and for 13 years she had been by my side, on adventure after adventure, I always made sure to buy the best food for her, buying treats that were healthy and wholesome and I always made sure that she had her annual visits to the vet, and ones when she was having trouble. She got to be a real dog, a real husky running around in the woods on an almost daily basis. My husband used to call her 4 Wheel Drive, back where we used to live, there were these 90 degree angle hills, might have well been walls of dirt 20 feet tall that she would just run up with no effort, she made it look so easy. Where ever she is, I hope she is running through the woods and splashing in the water, I hope she has all the dead things to roll in and it is a perfectly cool temperature for her. She deserves the best, she was the greatest dog for me, she was awesome and unforgettable.
I don't know how I am going to do this, but I've got to be strong for Dorian, Molly would have wanted me strong and determined.
Rest in Peace Molly

All typos, spelling errors and grammar errors I blame autocorrect.

So sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself during this difficult time.
Run Like a Mother
I am sitting here choking back my tears and I didn't even know you or your dog. I am so so sorry. You are a true dog hero for giving her the life that she had. I have two rescue dogs and they are like my children (and I have two children also). We will do anything for them. My oldest (9) has cancer and has had two surgeries, radiation, and just started chemo. I don't know if she'll make it. So I am crying for Molly because I know how much you are hurting right now. I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry. It's never easy losing a beloved pet.
more miles = more beer
I am so sorry for your loss hugs!
She had a great life, full of love and happiness! Remember the good times and she lives on forever.
Run Lanie, Run!
I am sorry. It is really hard. My cat is getting older and I am scared about it.
*HUGS* to you. I'm so sorry for your loss.
