A New Dog Cousin!

My parents got another dog to add to their pack! Her name is Mollie and she's a 14 month old golden retriever. She is so cute and friendly and she smiles non-stop. Patch (my parent's other dog) is really excited to have a sister! They get along really well, although from what my mom says, it sounds like Patch still likes to have his alone time because Mollie is so energetic and wants to play all the time. Mollie will most likely be my dad's new running partner, which will be great for her so she can get out a lot of energy.

Mollie looks almost identical to our latest family dog, Annie, who passed away a couple years ago. We had Annie for 14 years and was a beloved member of our family. Annie was a very friendly dog just like Mollie and she was my dad's running partner and best friend. However, besides going for her daily runs with my dad, Annie just enjoyed laying low all day, getting in plenty of sleep. When she did play, it was only for about 5 minutes and then she would go back to her dog bed by the fireplace.

Although Annie could never be replaced and we will always love her, we are very excited to welcome Mollie to the family!! I'm sure I will have lots of stories to blog about when Mollie comes to play with our 7 dogs!

How exciting!! Congratulations on your new cousin! There's nothing more exciting than bringing home a new puppy. Even if it means living vicariously through your parents. At least you don't have to get up in the middle of the night ;)
