National Pet Day With My Mollie The Border Collie!!

National Pet Day With My Mollie The Border Collie!! Hello friends, so how are you today? Happy National Pet Day, too!!

Can you believe My beautiful doggie Mollie is nearly two years old!?

 How time flies!! (Talking of time flying it is my youngest son’s birthday today too. I can’t believe he has turned 14).

National Pet Day With My Mollie The Border Collie!!

It only feels like month’s ago that we brought her into our lives and not years ago. I remember carrying her into our home, in one hand and promised to look after her and care for her forever. She was so beautiful, and still is 🙂

Here is a flashback of the first full day Mollie came to live with us:

 How little and cute was she!? So small and sweet. She followed me everywhere and still does, come to think of it. She wasn’t too impressed wearing a collar at first.

Getting her to walk on a lead was a challenge. Then again it still is.

She is car mad and spins everything one goes by. Trying to round it up with the sheepdog instincts in her. She settled in straight away and loves playing ball or frisbee.

Her little button nose looks so sweet hehe 🙂

Mollie was only 8 weeks old in these pictures in June 2015. Just eight weeks old lol. Adorable then and even more adorable now!!

Don’t get me wrong, she has her faults. Spinning around like mad trying to round up the cars being her biggest one!!

As long as she gets at least 2 x 1 hour walks a day she is OK. If not, she will follow me around the house all day until I take her.

We try to take her first thing, then everyone is happy!!

Mollie going all camera shy, haha!!

National Pet Day. Do you have any pets? Are you a dog lover or do you prefer cats? Or do you like them both the same?

I used to have a cat when I was growing up. Her name was Hollie and she was black and white just like Mollie too.

Thirdly, Mollie The Collie On The Beach: How Adorable?

No, Mollie disliked the sea; there was something about the sound of the waves that bothered her. She, on the other hand, enjoyed digging in the sand!! Isn’t she adorable? My prized possession. We didn’t spend too much time at the beach because Mollie didn’t like it. There was just enough time to obtain some cute pictures of her. So, before it got too hot, we went for a wonderful walk around Skegness. Mollie The Collie On The Beach.

Last But Not Least, The Last Chapter: Mollie The Border Collie. It is with a heavy heart, I let you know that Mollie The Border Collie has died. I am heartbroken as I loved her so much.

When we first brought her home, she was so tiny at just eight weeks Mollie The Collie: Puppy Diaries. We have had such a great journey together and she was one loved dog.

Did you know that today is National Love Your Pet Day? Do you have any pets? Please share with us what you have if you do have any. At Home With Murphy On National Love Your Pet Day.

Secondly, Meet Murphy- The Goldendoodle. Murphy, the Goldendoodle, is here to meet you. Dogs are said to have a knack for locating individuals in need. On the first anniversary of my father’s death, this lovely boy entered our lives. We called him Murphy in honour of my father, and we adore him. He’s roughly 9 weeks old in this photo. Meet Murphy- The Goldendoodle.

Last But Not Least, The First Week With A Goldendoodle Called Murphy:

The First Week With Murphy, A Goldendoodle. Bringing a Goldendoodle home was not the same as bringing a Border Collie home. Murphy, on the other hand, prefers to go with the flow, but the Collie, bless her, was pleased to be on the go, constantly. So, starting today, I’m going to share my Goldendoodle’s week-by-week progress with you. He began softly, shyly, and unassumingly, but now he is emerging from his shell and commanding the roost. The First Week With A Goldendoodle Called Murphy. You can follow his daily antics over on Instagram here: murphygoldendoodle2021.

    We have two cats. I used to have a dog but not any more. I really do miss her sometimes but we are too busy to care for one properly right now. Maybe when I retire I might think about having another oneMollyx

    Mollie is a gorgeous girl. They grow so fast, hey? I'm more of a cat person, but I love my pup too. We have 3 cats and 1 dog (a beagle), plus a ton of fish. It's a busy home!

    Molly is a beautiful young lady. We've had our new pup (cocker spaniel) for about four weeks now. I can sooo relate to the collar thing. Lucy is still not a big fan of her kennel, but it's getting much better. She is doing great with the leash & harness. Pups are just the best adventure ever. Have a blessed week.
