Molly has gone on to a new home

To some of you, this may not be a shock. I've had a few private conversations in the last month or so.

I love Molly so much. She is such a wonderful dog. However, as some of you may or may not have noticed, I haven't been posting on this forum as much. This is not by choice. It's because I'm out on average (with commute) 12 hours a day with work. Jessica is currently working three part time jobs and is gone 10-12 hours at a time too.

We have no idea when our lives will calm down. It could be within 6 months or so, it could be another year or longer. Molly has seperation anxiety and gets destructive/depressed when she is left alone. It was just not fair to keep her like this for an indefinite amount of time. As much as the selfish side of me wanted to. It is just not the right time in our lives to have a dog.

We couldn't have found a better home for her though. It is a long story but we met with a lady who runs a local animal rescue. She fell in love with Molly and decided that she would be the perfect dog for her retired parents. She also had to see how Molly got along with her three dogs because if something were to happen to her parents she wanted Molly to fit in with her. Everything worked out well, so they adopted her. I'm told that she is doing well.

I am going to meet them Wednesday night after work for one final goodbye.

My heart goes out to you.
Dogs like that need a super amount of attention and want to be with you every minute of their waking moments. Its torture for them to be alone.

A friend is going thru this with his cattle dog. He can take the dog to work with him but when he travels he has to have the dog cared for every second of the day!

You did what was right for Molly. Dont beat yourself up. Sounds like you found the perfect home.

What a tough decision... You and Jess are doing the right thing, though, and Molly will be grateful.

Aww, I'm so sorry, Rob. That's a shame. You did the right thing for Molly, though. Glad to hear she's doing well with her new family.

Dogs can be a lot of work - and I think that you've done the best thing for Molly. I'm especially glad that you found a nice home for her.
