Molly joined us in the Summer of 2001; a time before Facebook and WordPress, before William met Kate, before 9/11, before London hosted the Olympic Games and when The Poff had hair and mine was lengthy. It seems such a long, long time ago.
‘Avice Classy Claudia’
15 May 2001 to 24 Dec 2013
Molly, Molls, Hairy Bear, Pumpkin, Monster Dog, Sweetpea, Hairy Mary (? it rhymed), Molly Polly, Molly Poo and Fart Bum (? yeeeees).
Molly was almost impossible to draw as she fidgeted when being watched, however as a sketching companion in the park or the pub she had the patience of Job. It will feel terribly lonely for the next few weeks.
A big thank you to the Everills who provided us with the healthiest, happiest, good natured puppy and who loved Molly until the end. We could not have found better dog breeders.
Thank you to Geoff and the staff at Fleet Ashworth Veterinary Group who were wonderful these last 12 and more years. If a consistently healthy dog is a vet’s nightmare you never showed it!
And a thank you to all the groomers over the years, including Suzi of Bark Avenue, who grappled with a 7st hairy monster who loved the outdoors enough to carry it around with her.
And here’s looking to 2014, a new year. KN
