Oct 1999-Aug 2009
Our beautiful Mollie Dog passed away yesterday after a very brief illness. After suffering a touch of something we thought was heatstroke on Sunday, we kept a watchful eye on her. She became lethargic and listless over this past week and after several vet visits, blood tests showed she was bleeding internally, probably from a ruptured tumor somewhere in her upper body. We decided to not prolong things with more tests or surgery, because it wasn't very likely the problem could have been fixed once found.
Her very kind friend (and Vet) Sarah, made her last few minutes warm and comforting by taking us outside, and we sat in the grass, enjoying the sun, chatting and petting her. She lay with head in my hands and fell asleep as peacefully as she does any other night in my bed in front of the TV.
She leaves a huge void in our house and our family. We will miss her smiling face, her shoe carrying, her door bell duties, her nut cracking snacks, her hugs, her conversation and so much more.
