Sad Today....Part 3!

....It's been a bit of a traumatic 6 months I have to say. First it was the death of my lovely MIL last August, and then in December my gran who was 93.

Then, if that's not enough, this week we've lost our lovely dog Molly. She had mouth cancer and the vet said it was for the best. But still, it's a massive loss. We were both devoted to her. She ruled the roost there's no doubt about it, wrapping both myself and the DH and my other dog Bob around her paws like no-ones business! But she was my fur baby. I've never had children, and I'm the first to admit that I treat my dogs like children. Some people don't understand how an animal, be it cat or dog or whatever, can take the place of a child. But then others can.

Anyway - to say I've shed a bucketload of tears these past 3 days is an understatement. My only consolation is that we had her for 7 fabulous years. She came to us aged around 6 from the dogs home, having been abandoned and then picked up by the dog warden (who I know through work). She was in a very poor state when we got her. Skin and bone. But we fed her up, took her for long walks around our lovely island here on Anglesey, and she soon forgot all about her poor start in life. She especially enjoyed our outings in our old motorhome.

Anyhow - choking up now. So RIP Molly - we loved you so much.


  1. Oh Caroline I am so sorry. They are such a big part of our lives and they give so much and ask so little in return. How can we help but love them with all our heart?
    She had a wonderful life with you and you must hold on to that. It must have been very hard for you to post this.
    Sending you love and hugs and thinking of you xx

  2. Big hugs, Caroline. So sorry for your loss. It does sound like you gave her a wonderful life though.

  3. Thanks Teresa, Jackie and Pat. Caroline x

  4. So sorry for you Caroline and completely understand how you feel. Next month it will be 4 years since we lost our beloved Zoe and I still think about her all of the time. We have another dog and love him dearly but I still miss Zoe. I also understand the children thing because I do have human children and my dogs are like my children too. Sending you a big hug.

  5. Caroline - huge hugs. I know how completely devastating it is to lose a beloved pet and how it makes your world feel out of kilter. Sending you and yours much love. Take care of you.
