Nothing is certain yet, but there might be a new senior in my home soon. The passing of Max and Bailey have opened a space that will surely not take long to fill.
I got a call yesterday from a lady who just took a new job. (pretty lame excuse). She will be on the road 2 to 3 weeks at a time and there is no one to take care of Molly while she is gone. I am going to offer Molly for adoption since she is still energetic and young enough looking, but if no one adopts her before September 1, she will come here and possibly stay as a member of the family.
Molly is 12 years old and it is almost scary how much she looks like Diesel.
Honestly, a home with a family of her own will be the best thing for her. That would be so much better than sharing me with 15+ other dogs. Either way though, I will be here as her safety net, and if she ends up staying for life, well then it was meant to be.

Saving one dog will not change the world But, surely, for that one dog the world will change forever!
What a beautiful girl! I agree, lame excuse. >
I can't imagine giving up a dog after all those years.
Good luck, sounds like she will have a great home weither you keep her or not though!

They're giving her up after 12 years. After six months, you'd have had to shoot me in the head to take Theo away from me. I just can't imagine.
She's a beauty. I hope she finds a true forever home soon. Bless you, Joe.
She is gorgeous......and once again a lab is lucky to have found you!
Me either! There's no way I could take a job if it meant having to give up Boomer. I wouldn't even consider.Originally Posted by Tanya
She is beautiful...she will have a loving home no matter what.
Neither can I....... but I'm glad she's found her way to you.Originally Posted by Tanya
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
People gave up my Maggie after 1 1/2 years. They had kids and I just wonder if Maggie misses them? NOOOOO! She has me! I'm like a kid!
I really do wonder what Maggie thought at first - Where is my family? Where is my little friend? But not anymore. If I ever gave her up, what would she think? Where is that butthead that keeps me from chasing those cats? That keeps me from sleeping on the couch? etc....
Life throws us bad situations all the time so I won't judge the lady for giving up her dog.
I am thankful she found a good place with you.
I myself have taken on a foster dog before who was an 8 years old American Eskimo and for nearly the same situation. It was painful for the owner. I did it for the health reasons of the owners of a 11 yr old Doberman. Sometimes life deals you a bad hand but in those cases the people went through the proper chanels to place their dogs. The AE found a home. The Dobe stayed with me until she passed.
