The "Unsinkable" Mollie

This is my close-up shot...Don't I have
the most gorgeous, liquid-brown eyes?

        My name is Mollie and even though it's not nice to question a lady about her age, I will tell you. I'm six, which in Golden years means I am still active and playful. It also means I am past the puppy stage, so I don't chew up things and I have good house manners.

       I used to have a family but they moved away to a house without a fence.  I don't know why they chose a house with no fenced-in yard, knowing that I was a member of their family, but they didn't consider me, and so I was given up.  It was very sad---I had lived with them and had been loved by them for all of my life, and I didn't quite understand why they left me.  Why did they leave and not come back for me?  Why did I have to go to a "strange" house and live there?

       Well, it has worked out for the best, I guess.  I now live in a foster home where I get lots of love and attention.  But I certainly would like a home that is mine, a home that will be mine forever...

       What else would you like to know about me?  I get along with children (but please, don't apply to adopt me if you have any kids under the age of 4.  That is something the Love a Golden people are quite persnickety about.) and I get along with cats.  (Of course, cats are inferior to dogs, but they're nonetheless nice to have around.)

         Did you know that Golden Retrievers think life is a party, and they are the guest of honor? It's true.  We enjoy life so much and have such a great time.  Our enthusiasm and zest for life cannot be squashed.

         And I'm ready to start enjoying life with my new family.  Could you be the one I'm looking for?  If so, go to  You'll find me along with other Golden Girls...

Apparently Foley writing this blurb on his blog was a great idea, because I am now adopted!  I found a forever home!  I have a family that loves me!  But there are many other lovely and loving Goldens who are not so lucky.  Check them out on this blog, or go to our site to see all the four-legged friends available for adoption...
