Molly (Boston Terrier)
We love Molly, a Boston Terrier puppy, we adopted from the Kennel.
Born in January 2008, Molly would not have survived in many situations. But she was blessed to be born at Martin’s Double E Kennel, where Erla and Edwin never give up on a living animal no matter how grim things may seem. Molly was the runt of the litter, born with many problems. Her left eye never developed and it took more time than is usual for the soft spot on her head to close. She wasn’t expected to live. She is a living breathing miracle that we think is just perfect, in spite of her physical imperfections. She has spunk and the word terrier (terror?) fits.
Molly is forever annoying Mick, our 2 1/2 year old designer dog (a Brittany Spaniel/Samoyed mix?). She attacks him and chases him, bites his back legs and is just plain annoying like any little sister should be. He fights back playfully and is ever so gentle with her. We are amazed at their loving relationship because Mick is territorial and doesn’t like strangers (and sometimes familiar people) coming into our home, a result of his own tough struggle as an abused, neglected pup.
As you can see in the photo above, they’ve bonded. Molly is definitely the boss in the house. She is feisty, active, smart and funny. As much as Mick hates strangers, she thinks they are coming just to see her. She loves people and is a cuddler.
I lovingly call her Molly Mugly because she is so ugly, she’s cute … and she knows she has all of us wrapped around her little paw! Thank you Edwin and Erla for the blessing of Molly.
