Mollys Momma Again

It is with a breaking heart that I must tell you my sweet, beautiful, brave and wonderful girl crossed over the rainbow bridge this morning at 11 minutes past 11, I believe she willed herself to get better enough to spend one last night with her Poppa and I and to let us know that she loved us as much as we love her.

She was the bravest soul I have met and she taught me what courage is.

This morning she was very sick again bringing up all her dinner from last night and she had difficulty standing again. She let me know she was tired and I spoke to our lovely vet Anthony who agreed that if she could not keep her food down without being on a drip that the time had come to let her move on to the next stage in her existence.

Thank you all so very much for loving my girl I know she held you all so dear as do her Poppa and I.

I  consider myself blessed for having had her in my life and for bring me such joy and luvs.

So look up tonight and find the brightest, shiniest most twinkly star you can find and that will be my Angel Princess shining down on us.

Oh my gosh I am just in shock! I am so so so sorry that Molly had to leave for the bridge. She was such a beautiful sweet girl. I know this has to be so hard for you but it was also so selfless to let her go when she was suffering. You thought of her instead of yourself and for that you deserve some extra hugs. We are sending over lots of comforting purrs and prayers for you - and we are sure that Molly will be there watching over you from the bridge.

Beaglebratz & mom too said...

We read the news over at Puddles blog - so very sorry for your loss of Molly. Even tho we are not followers, I have heard of Miss Molly on different blogs and always meant to stop by to meet her. Even if it is not a dog I know, my heart still breaks when I hear about one crossing the Bridge. I feel like we lost out on an opportunity to know a great little doggy - I have read some of her posts and the "About Me" page - what a fighter she must have been and what great doggy parents you were to her to care for her so much. I hope you will smile again when you think of your little Divine Miss M, playing in the green meadow by the Rainbow Bridge, now totally pain-free forever.

The Heartbeats said...

Oh no! Miss Molly had the most love that any pup could ask for. She was lucky to have you and you to have her.

Hold her in your heart and meet her at the bridge one day.

Hugs and Love,

Heartbeats

Frankie Furter said...

Dear Ones, Please know that there are broken hearts in my home right now. I feel so bad for you two. We know Molly is where she needs to be...
I totally agree that she WILLED herself well enough to be home with you.
What a wonderful dog.
My your heartache be light and your memories be STRONG!!!

JD and Max said...

Miss Molly's Mom and Poppa, our hearts are broken for you. Miss Molly knew how much she was loved and we believe also that she wanted one last night with you - what a brave and wonderful girl she was. She'll watch over you from the Rainbow Bridge now and she will always be around as she's in your hearts.

"Don't cry because I left, smile because we met."

We'll be thinking of you tonight. Much love - JD and Max and Clare

mayziegal said...

Oh, Tea. I am so very, very sorry. My heart is just broken. She was such a sweet, strong, brave girl - just like her momma. I am just so sorry that you couldn't have had her for longer but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making these last few months so full of joy and love for beautiful Molly. She has touched us all so much and she will be missed so much!

HUGS and lots of love,
Amber (and Mayzie)

JD and Max said...

JD and Max here again - we wanted to mention that sweet Shelby went into labour about the time that little Molly crossed to the Rainbow Bridge.

(http://justustexasdachsies.blogspot.com/2010/09/four-and-counting.html)

We believe that this timing is no coincidence that that the spirit of Miss Molly - of hope and courage and love - will live on in these young puppies, who are lucky to even be alive, thanks to the kind angel who found her and is nursing her back to health.

Much love - JD and Max and Clare

Nadine, Chewy and Lilibell said...

I am so very, very sorry for your loss. What you did was a brave and selfless act and has allowed Molly to live a happy and carefree life over the Rainbow Bridge. I can fully understand the most difficult decision you had to make, as I had to go through the same thing several years ago with my cat Phoebe. My heart goes out to you for your loss, but Molly will live on in your memory and everyone ele's memories.

Hugs, Nadine, Chewy & Lilibell

Two Pitties in the City said...

We were so surprised and saddened to read this. Although we never met in person, I feel like we really did "know" Molly; we knew her even more than some of our neighbor dogs we see on a daily basis. The positive thing about blogs is that Molly did impact so many people, and you have all those memories preserved on your blog.

rottrover said...

Tea and Steve - so so sorry to learn of Molly's cossing. Her strength and courage, like yours, are an inspiration. I love that Shelby's puppies were born at about the same time that she crossed. May her spirit live on in them as it will in all of us who came to love her spirit. I'll be watching the sky tonight for that star.
-Lisa

Lola said...

Oh, we are so very sad right now. Not for Molly so much as for everyone else. We know she was very sick and probably lived longer and most certainly more happily than she might have without you and her Pops. She was loved and cared for until the very end and that's all any of us can really hope for. None of us are promised tomorrow. But you must be so very sad and we all will miss her so very much. I'm so glad she had you in her life. Every dog should be so fortunate. I also hope you'll stay with us and keep in touch, no matter what your dog situation is.

Much, much love, Lola and Pat

Ivy, the Yellow Lab said...

I am so very sorry to read this. I am glad I got to know Molly. Another Angel Dog waits at the Bridge.

sprinkles said...

I didn't keep up with Molly's story as much as I would have liked. But I wanted to say that I am so sorry. I feel your pain. I'll light a candle for Miss Molly now and tonight, I will make a point to look for the brightest, shiniest most twinkly star and I'll know that she's looking down upon us all.

Mr. Pip said...

Dear Sweet Molly,

I am heartbroken ...I know you would not want me to be sad, but I am very sad and will miss you forever. But I know some day we will meet again in a better place where we will be forever young and free.

Love always, Pip

P.S.: I went to bed early last night and didn't get your facebook message until it was too late ...I am sorry.

Mr. Pip said...

Tea and Steve,

We are all grieving with you. When we start blogging it is all about the dogs, but somewhere along the line real friendships develop and will continue now that Molly has passed. I know I speak for many when I say - we are here for you if you need us!

kalon said...

She made sure that she got one last day with her momma an poppa, once that was done she let her momma know that it was time and she was ready to cross the bridge. I haven't really followed the doggie blogs, Tea keeps me up to date with events and all the kind words. However many of the words of support and comfort have moved me so much that I feel I must thank you all for the love you have shown our sweet little Molly Popples and her momma. there is a hole in our hearts that will never be filled.
with love

I am so sorry to hear about Sweet Molly. Tonight she is happy and running and playing with friends at the Rainbow Bridge.

Oh No!! We're so sorry to hear about this! It brake our heart. Taking in the older ones when you don't know how much time they might have is a risk. But our experience tells us we get so much more than we give. You all were Molly's angels. I know she's watching over you now.

Zona said...

We have just returned from a trip away without internet and are so very saddened to read about this. Miss Molly was a very brave girl who brought us all lots of smiles and laughs. She will be missed and remembered with love until we all meet again at the bridge. I'm sure she is running free and taking in all of the sights there are to see while she waits for you. Take good care of yourselves during this difficult time.

Hugs,

♥MONA + MOMMY TOO♥ said...

We were so sorry when we heard of Molly's passing, we didn't know Molly but have heard a lot about her. Frankie's idea of naming one of the pups, Molly, was wonderful. Little Molly was born just about the same that your Mommy went to even. Mommy said she bets they even crossed paths and Molly told little Molly not to give up and thats why little Molly is alive now.

Mommy will send you a picture of Moma if you'd like when she takes one. Would you, like that?

God bless...Mona & Mommy, Sarah, too

Frankie Furter said...

Dear Ones, I hope that you find some COMFORT in this.
I see that you have a comment from Sandra of the Kiss A Bulls, and she mentioned Shelby.
Shelby had her puppies and I have purchased the right to name one in honor of Dear Sweet Brave Molly.
