Molleigh Anna

I made a really hard decision this week. I gave Molleigh Anna to a new home with a new mommy.

Molleigh and Maddox spend all their time outside (thanks to Maddox. I'm sure Molleigh curses the day he became to big and obnoxious for the house) unless it's cold winter nights or storms. The summer they are stuck outside because our air conditioner is broken and it's cooler in the shade of the trees. Molleigh is the sweetest most loving little thing in the world. We rescued her when she was just skin and bones and showing signs of major abuse. We nursed her back to life into a caring sweet beautiful little girl.

She just doesn't get the attention that she deserves. Niether of them do. A friend of mine just got a fence built in her yard and was talking about wanting a dog and I said "take mine" and the rest is history.

This morning we took her to the vet to get all of her shots updated and took her over to her new home. I am really going to be sad to drive in and out of my driveway every day and not see her run up to greet me or say goodbye. But I know in my heart that I did the right thing. I can still go visit her and take Maddox over to see her (until I find him a suitable and lovable home) and I will see her new mommy every day.

People kinda think I'm a bad person for giving her up, but she deserves so much better than what she has at my house. Her new mommy even went straight out and spent 200 dollars on toys and treats and new shiny bowls for her. I'm so glad that she is somewhere she is going to be loved as much as she deserves. I really think I did the right thing, but I can't help but be a LITTLE sad to see her go!!!


Wow what a mess that house was in back then hahahahaha


8 people that love me told me so:

You did something so amazing.
And self-less.
I don't think your a bad person, you are a beautiful person for thinking more of the dog than you are of yourself.

I'm glad your dog has a new home, one where you can visit.

I whole-heartedly second what the previous commenter said. It takes a lot of strength to recognize that it's time to let a pet go. And if you weren't more than a little sad to see her go, I would be worried. ((hugs))

Heather said...

You did the right thing.

Clare said...

What a beautiful dog, she is gorgeous! What you did shows how much you really love and care for her. Im sure she will enjoy her new home and be very glad when you come to visit!

I totally get the mess and living with dogs thing. I've got 2, and have told my husband that we are having no more. However, he knows I'm a softee, and he'll bring me home a puppy and I won't be able to say no. *sighs*
