Sad News

Our Internationally know... Molly
Born in 2001 in Mexico City...
Abandoned to the streets in Huixquilucan and rescued by the Whiston family.
After 2 years she moved with us to Cascais in Portugal, where we stayed for almost 6 years... She moved again with us to Staffordshire, UK where we have lived ever since.
She had epilepsy all of her life but it was controlled by drugs so not a problem really.
In later years she lost her hearing (curiously, this stopped her well known barking!) Her eyesight gradually failed but there was no problem with her sense of smell!!
During the last year, Dementia settled in with all it's complications, at times rather amusing but gradually it became tricky to live with.

Being lame in three legs didn't help at all...
So, we made the very tough decision this week, to let her go...
 Aged 15 years and 3 months
Missed muchly already, our Molly xx

What a sweet little girl. Sounds like she had a wonderful and well traveled life. I'm so sorry for your loss. We had a similar experience with our beloved Pokey - loss of hearing, eyesight and dementia. I think of her often with fond memories. She was our first dog and I've tagged her "the best dog ever." Left us at age 18. It's a hard decision to let them go but they're forever in your heart.
