~REST IN PEACE - SWEET MOLLIE BROWN~

 Dear Friends...

My husband, Steven and I shared the news earlier today via FB that our little Miss Mollie Brown passed away yesterday afternoon.  I'm beyond torn up over losing my furry friend and our hearts are completely broken.  I know for certain mine will never be the same.
Our girl was beyond precious and lived to be almost 15 years old.  She was truly one of my dearest friends, my constant companion and 24/7 shadow.  She saw me through many things and only asked of me to provide a warm place to lay her head and food and water for her tummy.  Gentle hugs, cuddles and kisses were optional, but she welcomed them always, but never demanded them.  She hated bath time, but loved how she felt after she was dry.  Her favorite pastime was hunting June Bugs and she could snatch them mid-air when she was younger.  Always the huntress, even when her eyesight dimmed she could scout out a Scada Bug, wings and all, and swallow it down before you could swipe it away.  She loved to give wet kisses and she would sit and politely beg for any scraps the minute you sat down to eat...

Such a little lady our baby girl was...

Last September I found a bump on her belly and it was a tumor.  In March she was was getting thin and by last Thursday was very frail and had lost down to a little over three pounds...  Her original weight was 6-7...depending on just how much people food she could convince me to pass her under the table.  

Late yesterday afternoon she passed away with both me and my Mr. AGP Man at her side.  Her little spirit is soaring high tonight and she is safe and sound.  It is my belief I will see her again...  I know I will.

Your prayers for Steve and I are greatly appreciated.  Right now we are both overcome with grief and sorrow...

Miss Mollie Brown

Love to you all...

Dear Rebecca,

I knew this was coming and my heart is breaking for you and your husband. This is so hard and takes a long time to recover from, if ever. I will keep you both in my prayers and thoughts.

We lost our dear Annie last October after fourteen years and I still hurt. Only a pet mother understands. Bless you.

Love to you,
Barb

I tried to reply to you and then go to your blog, but I can't find you, so I will hope and pray you find this comment here.

Steve and I are beyond inconsolable. Today at 4:40 will mark 48 hours without our beloved girl. As pitiful as it sounds I have done little more than snuggle with her little pink bed and cry. Steve is trying to be strong, but it is also hard for him. Saying goodbye to our precious, furry friend was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. Truly. How parents bury their children is beyond my scope of understanding.

I'm sorry to read of your losing your Annie after 14 years. You know my pain well then...as do others I am sure. My hope is we will be able to somehow press onward and that healing will come and at some point I'll be able to breathe again without pain. I pray this for you as well.

Love to you, friend. Thank you so much for caring.

Love, Rebecca

Oh Rebecca,

It has been a few years since I've visited your blog and something told me to go there today. I am so very sorry about your beautiful doggy. Your Sweet Molly Brown will live on in your heart forever.

I had written to you over 6 years ago and expected a cold shoulder reply, instead you embraced me and helped me. You graced me with prayers and understanding.

I have a Great Dane, named Alfie and I remember you telling me about your Molly. I had wondered what having a 6 pound dog would be like, compared to a 200 pound Great Dane. Now I have 2 Great Danes, I've added another boy, Sigmund. They make such a difference in our lives.

And don't forget, talk to Molly, she will answer you in the most unusual ways. I believe that the greatest gift you could of given her, was the comfort of dying in your loving arms. She was truly loved.

xoxo,

Lana

Oh Rebecca, my heart is breaking for you right now. I totally agree...I think we'll see our sweet fur babies in heaven too! Prayers for you as God heals the hole in your heart. Hugs. ♥

Oh dear Rebecca, I wasn't going to visit blogs today because it is my anniversary but I am so glad I did...otherwise, I would have missed this. I am so very, very sorry. I know the heartache of losing a beloved pet..and some of them make a deeper impression on our lives than other ones do---even though we love them all deeply. As sad as it is, at least you know your sweet Mollie is beyond all her pain and suffering and is running free beyond The Rainbow Bridge. I am sure you know that writing well---but if you don't please google it and read it. Blessings and love- xo Diana

Dear Rebecca, I'm so very sorry for your loss; I understand how you are so lost and grief stricken. Miss Mollie Brown was a very special girl indeed. Like you, I know I will be greeted in glory by my beloved pups.
Sending you big hugs and prayers.

Very sorry.

I am so very sorry about the loss of your sweet Mollie! I understand the pain you are feeling. My daughter lost her little sweet Bichon Chloe' in July of 2916 and even though she was our grand dog, we loved her dearly. We had her for 12 years. She was such a part of our life and there is still an empty place in our hearts for her. I haven't posted a comment here in a long time, but I read your post about how ill sweet Mollie was, so I checked tonight to see how things were going with her. Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and praying for you both.

Sending you a GINORMOUS GANKY sized HUG this morning:( SO sad for you and Mr. AGP Man! I will be praying for you both as you try to heal your broken hearts!

Dear Rebecca, My heart goes out to you and Mr. AGPMan. I've been there 4 times, and it never gets any easier. I will be praying for you and hope that your memory of all the good times you had with her will ease your pain some. Your friend, Vikki

Old Time Cindy said...

So sorry for the loss of your furry baby. May sweet memories overtake the pain you are feeling. Hugs.

Jen said...

I'm so so sorry Rebecca. I wanted to share something with you that helped me tremendously when I lost my Abby 5 years ago. I found this on a blog, unfortunately can't remember which one.
"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are."
It gave me great solace to read this over and over again. That and reading about "Rainbow Bridge". It didn't make the pain go away, but like I said it helped and I sincerely hope it helps you.
Hugs to you both - Molly was lucky to have such a special Mom and Dad

Take care
Jeannette

I am so very sorry for the loss of Mollie. You must be crushed and missing her so. I myself have a cat that I love to the moon and back and he is 17. Take care, I am thinking of you both. Kit

To all of you who have left comments about us losing our precious, Mollie....

Today we passed the three day mark without our beloved doggie and friend. My heart is still raw and I have cried more tears than I ever thought I could. I'm riddled with guilt over our decision even though I know our suffering meant she wouldn't have to endure any. Our hearts are shattered and breathing in and out is still hard.

All of your sweet words have meant so much to me. I love the Rainbow Bridge Poem and the words you shared with me, Jen, put a smile on my face... Thank you all so very much.

Steve is picking up Mollie's ashes in a few minutes. I will be so happy to have her back with us again. One day we hope to give another little furry friend a home. But, for now we will cry and grieve until at least a little of the sorrow passes...if it ever does.

Bless you all...and thank you.

Love, Rebecca

Dearest Rebecca,
Oh so sorry to read about Miss Mollie's passing...
Yes, I do know that raw feeling of grief, after losing our mini companion.
My Mauzie, the miniature Dachshund was about Mollie's weight. She lived to be 12.5 years of age and had cancer so we had to put her down. So sad!
I'm hoping to have once a 15-year old pet. Our Barty boy the cat being 13 now and he's the oldest I've ever had.
A big warm hug and remember your cute fur baby Mollie from her happier times!
Mariette

Rebecca,

My sweet friend, I am so sorry for your loss. I know all too well the overwhelming grief and sadness you feel. Hold fast to all the memories and know that she will be waiting for you. Run free Miss Molly, to the Rainbow Bridge.

Hugs to you and your family,

THis is definitely a hard time in our lives when we loose our beloved pets to death. I didn't think I would ever get over my little Sissy dying.
Your friends will tell you that she had the best life any little dog could have had.

Peace be with you and your husband and thanks to Mollie Brown for being a part of your life and love
