A Dog's Tale cont'd.

Well it looks like I will soon be a dog owner. I have now officially rescued the little dog. She is currently on a ranch with the Humane Society people. She has been to the vet and had a check up, shots and was spade. She is not pregnant. She has had pups in the recent past. I never saw or heard any puppies. I shudder to think what may have happened to them. They also gave her a bath. What I thought was caked mud is sap, from that tree she lived under. The sap will not come out of her coat. It will have to wear off. Humane Society people say she is indeed house trained. (Mark is relieved.) She will walk on a leash but attempts to tow you along. She gets along with the other dogs. All in all, "A great little dog," says the dog walker. I wanted to call her Mollie. The Humane Society people are calling her Mollie Bea. I am touched.

Mark is less than thrilled, but resigned. "I knew the moment you started feeling sorry for that dog we would eventually own her." I was never that sure. I am grateful to God for how it all worked out. (Rest assured I am not a criminal.) I am not sure what we are going to do with her. We have two sides of a fence, not four. But with winter coming on I don't have to worry too much. For the frozen season she will be an inside dog who goes for walks. She can stay where she is until we move in. H.S. people say she smiles all the time.

Can you believe it? I will have a new dog and a new house in the same month. I am kind of shell shocked. The cats hate me already. Whomper Dinky will, I think, get along with Mollie Bea. Rocket Socks will sit on top of things and stare at me reproachfully. October promises to be an interesting month.

I am going to start painting kitchen cabinets this eve. The job is awful but I will not gripe, the cabinets are MINE.

Take care of yourselves. Love Bea

I am absolutely thrilled for you and for Mollie Bea! You will be a good mother to her. It was great talking with you the other night. I don't remember when I've heard you so upbeat and happy. May it last forever!! Even painting won't be so bad when its your place your working on. We're gone for the weekend but it will be back to work come Tuesday. Love, Marti

Congratulations! It was such a good thing that you did for that dog! She will love you endlessly and be senselessly devoted to you. Kudos for a "mitzvah" worthy of praise.

I'm catching up on your life, WOW - what great things are happening. The couple who offered to help, the dog becoming yours. Wonderful things. I hope you let those people help you. It will be fun. I am very excited for your new life!

I'm so happy for you. Dog is God spelled backwards. She'll give you far more love than you can ever imagine.

I have two and can't imagin life without them. House dogs are not a bad thing - you just have to take her out.

I'm so happy for the dog and you (and Mark). You will be a fantastic owner/mom to her. I'm so happy to hear the good news. (I've been thinking about the poor little dog myself.)

Have fun with making your house yours. I hope you post a photo of Ms. Mollie Bea!

I have to admit I'm glad you're adopting Mollie Bea. You have been her rescuing angel.

I felt bad hearing about the nonsense about the house, but I'm glad you stood up for yourself and forced the real estate guy to fess up.

Sorry I've been so MIA lately. I think I'm finally getting my butt in gear and returning to some sense of sanity. I promise not to disappear for so long again!
