Spartans among us

November 29, 2017 - 11:06am
It was an absolutely gut-wrenching day. A little less than two weeks ago, my brilliant little ball of light, happiness and goodness laid down her fluffy head in my lap for the last time. For 16 years, Molly, Molly the border collie (mix) had been the simplest joy and the kindest of souls for my family. Steadfast, loyal and the sweetest dog you've ever met, every day was better when she greeted us at the door. She honestly was the perfect dog. I know everyone says that, but seriously, she was. Yet, as we know when we get them, they can't stay with us forever. Though, a kind friend pointed out that it is their forever, and we hopefully made hers wonderful. A shelter dog we picked out when she was about six months old, we lavished love and attention on her every single day. She grew up with my daughter, stood by us on bad days, and always made us remember that there is good in this world. I'm still trying to figure out how to go about my routine without her and without crying. And on that horrible day, when we needed it the most, another kind and compassionate soul stepped in to be there for us. Because of illness and some other circumstances, we ended up with a veterinarian who we had never met and had never before cared for Molly. She came recommended by a friend who also had experienced this loss recently. She held us up when we couldn't, cared for all of us, and said some of the kindest things we needed to hear. Most of all, she made sure Ms. Molly was comfortable and at peace.
