Good bye old friend...

I had to say good bye to who has been refer ed to by many as "The best dog ever". She did not quite make her 14th birthday which is almost 100 in dog years.

I remember taking a road trip with my friend Chad Tepe to go get a couple of puppies. He wanted a German Short Hair and I wanted a Yellow Lab. We first went to Salina, then further east and eventually I bought Molly only a few miles from where I grew up in Topeka (Same with Zach the Short Hair) That definitely was a late night!

Me and my pal Molly did everything together in my single days. From trips to the lake to trips home. I knew Jenifer when I got Molly but we were not quite engaged yet (I think). But Molly accepted Jenifer and Jenifer eventually accepted Molly. I think that happened the day that Jen taught Molly to speak.

Then I remember bringing home Caden from the hospital. That crying definitely drove Molly crazy. She wouldn't even look at Caden for several days. The second baby (Carsen) was easier transition.

The last new addition was a bit more annoying to Molly, that was Jersey (The Yellow Lab Puppy) Molly bit Jersey the first night. (My fault, do not put the puppy by old dog when she is eating) However the constant activity did Molly good! She even played ball!

Hopefully Molly had enough time to teach Jersey the right way and gave her some good advice on dealing with me and the kids.

We told the boys what was happening a couple of days ago and they took it well. Thank goodness we had Jersey to help us through this difficult time.

Good bye old friend. I will miss you.

She was indeed the best dog ever! You'll always have those good memories to share with the boys. Thinking of you all.
