MOLLY AND ME – SUBMISSION

Going “walkies” is the highlight of Molly’s day. We go out in all weathers. So far, we have walked in sunshine, in rain, in howling gales… but not in thunderstorms. I would rather risk Molly’s wrath than the fury from the skies. Thankfully, Molly is terrified of thunder! However, the weather isn’t the problem – Molly is. Although she submits …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – SUSPICION

Strange, isn’t it, that my little dog who loves me and who, seemingly. can’t get enough of me, should be suspicious of me, and yet she is.

Molly has developed an irrational fear. For some reason that I cannot understand, she is terrified of my fly swatter.

All 5 kg of her is pure aggression, despite her being well-socialised as a puppy. …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – CONTENTMENT

“Me” time! Do you have “me” time?  From 5 to 7 in the morning is strictly my time – and Molly knows it. After she has had her little run outside to do the necessary – and sometimes that includes exploring the same garden she has explored dozens of times before – she comes inside and waits patiently for me …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – COMPASSION

It amazes me how life lessons can be found in simple things. Take Molly and me, for example. As I mentioned in my last post, Molly is my thirteen-month-old, strawberry dapple miniature dachshund – a fancy title for a cute, mischievous, energetic, adoring and adorable little sausage dog. She has taught me much about worship, not the faulty, fickle and …Continue reading →
