This has been a life-changing week. A couple months ago we decided to get a new German Shepherd puppy. Our German Shepherd, Mollie, is nine years old and we wanted her to help train the new kid and we thought a puppy might just help keep her young. Not that she isn't plenty energetic for a 9-year-old. As Robert Burns said ,,, "The best laid schemes of mice and men go often askew."
We had planned for several weeks to pick up the 8-week-old puppy on Friday, February 19. That way we'd have the weekend to get her adjusted before going back to work. On Friday morning, Mollie wouldn't eat, was drinking a lot, and generally not feeling well. So my husband took her to the vet who ran some tests, and decided to keep her overnight. We decided to go ahead and get the new puppy hoping that Mollie would come home feeling better in a day or two.
Long story short, we ended up picking up our new puppy, Lexie, on Friday as planned, and saying goodbye to Mollie later that night, which was definitely not the plan. It was quite a blow and we are still reeling from the shock. But Lexie is keeping us very busy. We think maybe God planned it that way so we don't have time to mope around about our huge loss. Our dogs are truly members of our family, and we take them with us whenever we can. My husband works at home so they are always by his side. Mollie is sorely missed.
So, I haven't got much reading done in the past week (or much else either) and am still very sad (and exhausted.) So keep me in your thoughts!
Rest in peace Mollie
