In August 2000, after always having owned Irish Setters, Ray and Sue, who had been transporting for GRRMF, adopted a 7-month-old Golden named Molly.
Given up because she could barely walk, the couple assumed that a little red wagon would loom large in little Molly’s future. But time, patience and joint supports happily proved them wrong as Molly grew stronger and stronger until she was “whole” again.
“Our adoption of 4-year-old Julie from GRRMF helped give Molly the added confidence she needed to become the ‘queen,’ ‘trainer,’ ‘boss,’ and everyone’s best friend,” says Sue. “At the age of two, Molly ‘strutted her stuff’ in the Parade of Rescued Goldens as part of the Golden Retriever Club of America’s Specialty. Then, at the regal age of 12, she led the Parade of Golden Rescues at the GRCA Regional Specialty. She and the other GRRMF Goldens proved they weren’t show dogs, but rather vacuum cleaners ‘woofing’ up any and all treats dropped by the handlers preceding them!
“Over the years, as we adopted six more GRRMF Goldens and fostered nine others (in addition to our four rescued felines), Molly continued to be the wonderful, sweet soul who still ruled everyone’s hearts, and who gifted us with unconditional love, laughter and happiness for 15 ½ years.
“Thank you, our miraculous, marvelous Molly, you will never be forgotten!”
