Molly Sue Collins -- April 28, 2006 -- September 20, 2016|
Approximately, seven years ago Molly came into our lives. Thank you Golden Beginnings for making this adoption / rescue a possibility.
Molly was supposed to be Kyrie's baby, however, it turned out Molly had other plans. Just before Thanksgiving in 2009, Molly came to mom and dad's home and decided this would be her forever home. Molly did more than fill a void left by Murphy, our yellow, Labrador Retriever of eleven and one half years, who had crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday, September 16th, 2009.
Molly quickly ingratiated herself into the Collins family. She was always on her best behavior. However, as years went by, she became more sensitive to thunder storms, especially the thunder part. Molly greatly enjoyed going for rides in the car, long walks, and attempting to catch some of the wildlife that live around Central Texas. Molly enjoyed her treats and knew exactly how to get them.
Molly received certification to be a Service Dog. For a while, Molly also had opportunities to visit with residents in various nursing homes in and around the Austin, TX, area. She was a very beautiful Golden Retriever and everywhere she went people would comment on her good looks. Molly had a very sweet and gentle, calming spirit. She always knew how to get someone to give her a rub without them realizing it.
Molly was a survivor. She overcame heartworms, a rattle snake bite, and for more than a year, mast cell cancer. Many thanks to Dr. Caplan at VCA Capital Area Veterinary Specialists for her surgical expertise. We are so grateful that we had one more year with her after the cancer surgery and recuperation. We are thankful that we were able to spend one week at a lake house with Molly and her extended family. We all had fun swimming in the lake, campfires, s'mores, and fireworks.
Molly will be missed more than words can say. There will never be another Molly like our Molly. No dog will ever compare to our Miss Molly.
We do not say, "Good bye," we will just say, "See you later."
