I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

Good Golly, Miss Molly!

Hey Blog Buddies,

Call the Men in the Little White Coats!  I believe I've totally lost my mind.  Our local humane society participated in Pet Smart's Mega Adoption Event this weekend.  DH wanted to go there "just to see what was happening."   yeahright.   So we went, and my Better Judgment was screaming at me to get back into the car and just drive away, but did I listen?   No.   So, this is the result.

She was found as a stray, and her shelter name was Dollie.
We didn't care for that name,
so we decided to call her Molly.
(Who could resist that face?  Not me.)
The shelter guesstimates that
she's about 4 years old.
She appears brownish in this photo,
but she's almost all black.


She was marketed as a lab mix.
A lady we met in the pet food store
swore she was mostly coonhound.
(Oy!  I really didn't want another scenthound!)
Our coonhound-owning friend says her face
reminds him of a pointer,
but acknowledges the coonhound
ears and tail.
She's already treed a squirrel in our yard --
something coonhounds do.


But whatever breed Molly is,
she is very calm around
adults, kids and other dogs.
She's active outdoors,
but this is what she likes to do indoors.
She's very sweet and gentle,
without a mean bone in her body.
And she appears to be housetrained!
As she settles in and
unpacks her bags,
we'll get to find out more about her.
Stay tuned for updates.

Thanks for visiting!

Gorgeous face. Rescued is my favorite breed! (We used Canine Heritage to find out "what" Stella was, mostly to answer questions we got at the dog park.)

What a pretty dog. She looks so much like our last dog, Sammi. We had to put her down due to illness last year.

I'm so glad you made room in your home for her. We have rescued many animals over the years.

Oh my - she's soooooooo beautiful. I would have named her Seal. She will give you so much love. You're both lucky to have found each other. Aren't you glad you didn't get back in the car? I will stay tuned. Patsye
