I think we found it this time, girl! The Furever you’ve really been waiting for. We’ve searched high and low and finally came up with the best home ever for you – and you deserve it!
Molly’s new People are Mike and Marla. They lost their beloved family dog, Annie, to old age a year and a half ago. They were understandably devastated, and needed to take some time before they added another furry member to their family. This past winter, Marla saw Molly Tamale’s profile online, and that little spot in her heart that had been reserved for puppy love, that had been locked up tight since Annie’s passing, started to crack open. Unfortunately, Molly got adopted before Marla could inquire about her any further. Disappointed, she put her dog search on hold.
When Molly recently came up for adoption again, Marla took it as a sign of “meant to be.” She filled out an application right away, and as soon as Foster Dad and I saw it, our hearts leapt up into our throats. On paper, Mike and Marla were exactly what we had pictured for Molly! But, having been wrong before, we wanted to make sure we got it right for Molly this time. We held our breath and decided that the best place for Molly to show off her real personality would be in the house that she’s used to. So we dropped the boys at daycare (to eliminate distraction) and invited Mike and Marla over to meet Molly.
It could not have gone better!
Foster Dad and I have never seen Molly Tamale warm up to a “stranger” like she did with Marla. As we’ve mentioned before, Molly has an independent streak. She’s affectionate in her own way, but she rarely seeks out attention. So when Molly chose, on her own, to go over and lay at Marla’s feet – I knew it was Right.
Molly must have felt the puppy love pouring out of Marla’s heart towards her, because she was glued to her for the entire visit. Mike and Marla were both sold, and so was Molly Tamale. We moved forward with the next step, taking Molly out to their home to we could
see where Molly would hang out make sure they had a window. Check and check!
Molly Tamale seemed as equally smitten with Mike and Marla as they were with her.
I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. Maybe Marla wasn’t truly “ready” for a new dog in her life during Molly’s first go-round at Foster House. Maybe Molly Tamale wasn’t done exploring the globe yet. Call it fate, call it destiny, call it divine intervention. I call it Furever.
Congratulations, Molly Tamale! We love you forever, and we’ll never forget you.
