I was there when Molly was born, June 11, 2007. She was the second last to be born and just a little bigger than the runt. She was so tiny she fit in the palm of my hand. I will never forget that date as it was the day my furbaby came into this world and into my life. Now, 12 years later, she’s still my baby and will always be. She’s so much more than just a pet, she’s family.
Molly is the sweetest dog, always happy to see the ones she truly loves. She greets me every time I come home and does not rest until I pick her up to hug and kiss her. She’s been my rock through all the hard times and my joy through the good times. She’s highly intelligent and affectionate, she knows when “mommy” is sad and will do anything to make sure “mommy” is ok. As a Chihuahua/Min Pin mix she’s what they call a “lap dog” – and you guessed it, her favourite spot is on mommy’s lap.
Studies show that having a pet is beneficial to your overall health, such as lower blood pressure, reduces stress, boosts the immune system, adds meaning and purpose to one’s life, staves off depression, etc.
Service dogs provide assistance to those who have mental illness, hearing impairments, visual difficulties, seizures, autism, diabetes, emotional disabilities and other disabilities.
There are so many benefits to having a dog as your best friend. Their love is unconditional, the best kind of love.
My Molly will forever hold a very special place in my heart, after all she’s my furbaby.
