Three Nails To Protect Us

Molly came to stay with us 2 weeks ago tomorrow to see how things would go because she needed a new home.

It’s likely pretty safe to say that she is here to stay. She has fallen right in with ease.

Almost feel like we cheated. I have always gotten dogs as puppies.
Molly will be 3 in January and she is extremely well behaved. House broken, has the run of the house when we are gone and bothers nothing. Is fantastic with our boys and already quite protective and possessive of them.
No need for a leash as she just hangs around. When you do take her for a walk she is very good on a leash, she is a sniffer though.
It was an argument each night as to whose room she would be in for bed time so we have come up with a rotation.

All 3 boys wake up and ask where is Molly first thing. They fight over who gets to feed her (we’ll see how long that lasts).
I get up about 5 to take her on a walk and currently enjoy a nice morning walk in the 60s. The cold weather is about to hit so that will be less enjoyable but will still enjoy walking while it is quiet and dark.

It’s been a long 4 years with no dog but pretty sure we lucked into a winner with Molly.

Thanks for giving Molly a good home. I’m certain she will repay your love a thousand-fold and it appears your kids have a new best friend.

Just because something is legal to do doesn't mean it is the smart thing to do.

Looks like you will ALL have a happy home.

Can I tell ya where that's heading? Wife hated it but me and my son loved adopting a pair of rescue dogs. Great that Molly is working out so well. I'm sure she'll warm nicely to the new adoption. And much like guns, two dogs are always better than one. Smile Wink

Not a chance in the world. Did the 2 dog thing once not the good option as I had thought.

Hey, you gave one good dog another chance which is absolutely great. If a second dog isn't in the cards, it doesn't distract one bit from the good you did (and are doing) with Molly.

Who adopted who?
Molly seems to enjoy being a mentor and co-conspirator to your kids.

After opening this thread I was really glad it wasn't something about the 1975 Don Johnson movie and instead a touching note about a young child and his family dog.

Great photo. Thanks for the update as I was wondering how the transition was going and couldn't find your original thread. (My search skills failed me)
Anyway glad to see it's going well as I expected.

Great news. It seems Molly won the doggie lottery, as did your family. I am right there with your comment on walking a dog in the predawn hours. One of life's simple pleasures, even when it's cold or raining.
