MONDAY MEETING WITH MS.MOLLOY





Hi! It's Monday, and I decided it was time to introduce Ms.Molly. If you can recall we have 5 babies(dogs) and so far you have meet Mr. Murphy and Ms Missy. Molly was the 2ND. baby we adopted after we got Missy. We found Molly who was a homeless baby pent up in a wire cage. She was being sold at a flea market in Collins ville, Ala. This market is only open on Sat. At this market you can buy produce, jewelry, crafts, household items and of all things , animals, from chickens, turkeys, goats, cats, dogs. I love going to this place, but have to admit it bothers my husband and myself to see the animals. Well, back to my story, we spotted this small dog in a small cage. My husband and I saw her we walked a short distance and turned around and paid $100. for her. We wanted a baby sister for Missy. Oh! how good it felt to give this baby a home. We named her Molly, as once again my mother with her accent had to have a name she could pronounce, and as well we started the requirement to name any other adopted babies with names starting with the letter M, to rhyme with our last name. Molly, wasn't a puppy but a small hairy puff ball with the most bright beautiful brown eyes. Molly and Missy, her sister looked at each other and slowly, the sisterhood began. As sisters, can be they had their share of fights about meals and who was going to sleep with Mommy and Daddy. Molly is a cry baby. She cries when she accidentally stumbles, gets a bath, gets a hair cut. She was a timid and quiet child when she was adopted. After adjustment, Molly, has now a voice, A LOUD VOICE. She has now become 'the leader of the pack". She creates a "BARK A MANIA" SINGING GROUP. Unfortunately, she starts singing anywhere between 2 to 6 a.m..When she starts, all of the 4 other babies join in the "ROCK BARK ALONG". Never know what inspires Molly to begin to get the concert going, maybe food, drink, I, need to go to the potty. This usually happens every night. As parents, you know it's very difficult to ignore your baby crying so down the hall you go. Sleep deprivation can sometimes be a problem. Molly is our"GATE GREETER'. Once she runs to the gate, the 4 other babies are in hot pursuit and join in the welcoming people to our home.Molly, has a compulsive disorder. She will post herself and steadily bark and stay at the barn or elsewhere to hunt down a mouse, rabbit or bird. We sometimes have to bribe her with treats to get her in a different direction. As a parent, you know that this is not the best way to handle your child, but it works. Molly, has a personality change which is good and bad. No matter, we love this addition to our household. When you adopted your baby, babies, where did you locate your child? Did you notice any personality change? Next week, I'll introduce to you another baby who is a part of our family.

  2. I'm glad you could give them a good home.
    I have two cats and a dog. One of the cats came from a friend giving them away when they were kittens, and the dog and our other cat came from our local animal shelter.
    Thanks for sharing the pictures! :)

  3. That is one cute dog/baby! We have flea markets in Amish country that sell exotic animals. Lions, and tigers and bears..oh my! It makes me sad that people actually cage up these wild animals and try to make them tame, house pets. Crazy! Our first dog came from the animal shelter. He was awesome! Eddy is from a Mennonite farm. He's awesome too!

  4. What a beautiful story. And that little fluffy ball of yours is just adorable. She was truly lucky at that market that day.

  5. Molly is so adorable, except for the barking, though in those early morning hours. We got our corgi from a breeder in Alabama when we lived in Montana. It took him over 11 hours and 3 flights to arrive to our house.

  6. We found OC's dad when he was a pup, running the streets and when no one answered our ad, we kept him. We bought her mom from a breeder. Their stories are linked to their pictures in our sidebar. Mist only had two pups... OC and her brother, though we had lots of people waiting for corgi pups. OC never got pregnant until her mama passed away, and by then, she was about 7 years old and we didn't think she COULD be bred (She had never taken though we'd tried for 5 years) when she found her own "guy." She had 8 pups, though only 5 lived. Dott & BG are two of those 5.

    We sometimes foster dogs for my Sister's Rescue Organization and while fostering a corgi for them, Dott ended up pregnant and had 4 pups. We kept 3 and gave one to a wonderful home. They are all being spayed and neutered so there won't be any more problems like that.

    We use water spray bottles to stop barking around here. Works MOST of the time :)

  8. The first dog me and Mr. Skittles had was a rescue dog. After a few years though she started showing signs of aggression and with grandbabies here now and then, we couldn't have that and we found her a new home.

    We now have a chocolate Lab and she's our "baby." We got her from a family in town as a puppy.

  10. Oh what a cute story and so glad to hear that you rescued her. I find so many strays and also have seen ones at flea markets and just want to scoop them all up and take them home which is what hubby is afraid of. I don't think our other two would be too friendly if others invaded their space. They just have a way of getting into our hearts.

    Our one doxie hates rain, thunder and lightening and knows well in advance of an storm brewing and she cries to get in bed with us and so then the other one follows. Last night the crying started at 1:00 AM, so needless to say I got little sleep but that is what we do for our kids (human or fur).
