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.
