Default Molly ~ In Loving Memory

I had to make a difficult decision and let my 13 year old Molly go This afternoon. She's had DM for a couple of years now and the last few weeks she took a turn for the worse. This past weekend we decided it was time.

Yesterday we quietly celebrated her 13 birthday and spoiled her rotten. Our lives are so enriched because of her. We never expected her to live this long.

At 2 she started losing weight and the vet diagnosed she had exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. We've been giving her pills before every meal to help her digestion. She put some weight back but was always a little skinny.

At 6 she started limping. Her right ACL was torn, so she get TPLO surgery. She recovered nicely the 2 years later when she was 8, the left one went.

Through all that, she never once complained. She is our 1st GSD. We've brought 2 puppies home when she was 2 and at 11. Both GSD's of course. She was great little lady. Because of her, we will always have a German Shepherd's in our Home.

So sorry to hear your sad news. We just lost our male GSD to DM in Feb. as well, so we feel your sadness and pain. I feel sure Molly indeed had a very blessed life with you. And yes, once you've loved a GSD, you're hooked. Our best to you, Bob

Hi there -

Just thought I'd reach out as I just had to let my first GSD, Eva, go on 4/30/14, and I see that 4/30 was the birthday of one of your girls. My Eva had Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency too. I got her to fatten up once, for about a month - she was very vain, I used to tell people, since she usually stayed around 60-65lb (bit too skinny on her frame).

Anyway, what a wonderful legacy Molly left -- you seem like a wonderful owner and now who knows how many Shepherds will get to experience you as a guardian, and how many of your (surely) responsible, caring friends will see your GSDs and choose one for themselves. She touched your lives -- as you so aptly put it, she enriched them, and you went on to brighten and enrich other folks' lives as a result of that, too. Her presence rippled (and continues to ripple) out to affect many other beings, humans and dogs alike, and so you can know that in some ways, her spirit still lives on in this world.

Peace to you and yours. It's not easy. But then, that is a testament to the lives of these wonderful dogs - that their loss is so deeply felt.

Take care of yourself in the coming days. And as the good memories come, slowly, to your stunned and saddened mind, let them alleviate your tears and your sorrow - that's what Molly would want.

PS: You may want to ask a mod to move your post to the loving memory section (In Loving Memory - German Shepherd Dog Forums) since Molly has already passed.

I am so sorry for your loss.

We never have enough time with them, I wish they lived longer.
