My Best Friend

I decided to make a card today in honor of my best friend, "Mollie".   She greets me excitedly every morning, whether I'm late or not, to feed her and turn her out.  I'm entertained whenever I toss her ball as she cavorts and prances around every time she makes a catch.  I never worry about having company when I'm sitting on my swing, she always jumps up beside me, taking more than her fair share of the seating area.  

Every child is always greeted with a wagging tail and a kiss if she can get away with it.  And if they can toss her the ball, she will keep them occupied until either she or they drop to the ground in utter exhaustion.   Unknown adults are properly barked at until I make introductions, then she is begging for a good scratch.

Mollie and my cat Tink "tolerate" one another.  Tink sits and glares ar Mollie and I when we are playing ball or spending time together on the porch.  Mollie sits quietly in her fenced yard and observes Tink and I when she is getting her "kitty love",  eyes asking "is it my turn yet"?  

She endures my singing and patiently listens to me when I share my sorrows.  Each day is a celebration of life in her book, full of adventure and possibilities.  No matter how I'm feeling, she always brightens my day.

I had to come over for a closer look at your sweet Lab! I agree completely with your story of Mollie. We have a black boy and chocolate girl. Both greet me each night after work. It really makes the difficulties of the day fade away! This sweet image is a perfect likeness of your Mollie!
