Dear Molly,

I know that Molly gets neglected A LOT in my postings! She was my first baby and will always have a special place in my heart for her. For different reasons (i.e. 2 babies in 2 years) she has taken to be her Daddy's girl and spends most of her time frolicking on the golf course and riding to and from work with Tex on a daily basis, I know that is where she is most happy! I love Molly and I can't imagine our family without her. I got this email today and I just cried my eyes out for some reason! I feel guilty because I don't always get to curl up with Molly and spend quality time like we did before the "kid days" but we still have our special moments together when everyone else in the house is asleep and she will stay up with me and watch my dvr'd shows :) Love you Molly!

This is one of the best emails I have gotten in a while!

An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard.
I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.

He calmly came over to me, I gave him a few pats on his head;
He then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the
Hall, curled up in the corner and fell asleep.

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out.

The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour.
This continued off and on for several weeks.

Curious I pinned a note to his collar: 'I would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is
And ask if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.'
The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar:
'He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3 - he's trying to catch up on his sleep.
Can I come with him tomorrow?
