"Gotcha Day" is the day you adopted. Today is that day. Three years ago Molly became a permanent part of my life. She is definitely more than I bargained for, but she is my baby.
Here she is when I first got her.
And here she is today ~ much more grey and with a host of medical issues.
First of all she is the world's meanest pug. So un-puglike. I lovingly call her Bad Molly. She HATES all other dogs. Cannot be near them or she goes in to "kill" mode. It makes is difficult to be around DSO and his pug Ernestine, but we deal with it. Initially they got along ~ not sure what went wrong! Not easy but it is what it is . . . and the hatred between the two is mutual. Thankfully she loves people, except for the mail carrier 😁
In addition to being so mean, she is deaf, prone to UTIs (cha ching $$$), and has pug myelopathy. Myelopathy is an incurable, progressive disease of the canine spinal cord that is similar in many ways to ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Bottom line is that she is losing the use of her back legs and bodily functions. Oh, what I do for this baby!!! The good news is that is does not cause her any pain.
Happy Gotcha Day, little Miss Molly.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs 😊
