The Last Chapter: Mollie The Border Collie

The Last Chapter: Mollie The Border Collie, Hello friends, Happy Wednesday. So how are you today?

 Welcome to This Week’s Wednesday Link Up. There will be no blog hop for a while as I need time to grieve but I needed to get this post out today.

Thanks so much for stopping by here today and joining us for The Wednesday Link Up. Do you have any posts to share with us this week?


The Last Chapter: Mollie The Border Collie

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. We were best friends and spent hours together every day of her life.

As if my life hasn’t been bad enough with losing my dad in January, I now have to deal with losing my fur baby.

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.

I loved her from day one; Mollie: My Adorable Border Collie I Love You.

She was such a pleasure to own and raise.

I can’t believe how sad I feel even though I knew in November of last year that the tumours she had removed were cancer and it would be back. Finding Out My Dogs Tumours Were Cancer.

I have cried most days since know one day I would have to make the decision to put her down.

Favourite Photos:

One of my favourite photos of her was a lion King moment: Mollies Lion King Moment!! Mollie On Snake Rock?

Also, love this photo when she would not let me set my table up because she wanted some attention: Close To You!! Mollie The Collie Diary’s. 

It wasn’t always easy, having a dog. She loved to rip things up It Wasn’t Me!? But how could you tell her off when she had a face like this!? How adorable was she in her Christmas Jumper?

She was my best friend and we loved going walks together and it has been so hard watching her get poorly with cancer. I miss seeing her beautiful face around.

The Last Chapter: Mollie The Border Collie:

We used to play Mollies favourite songs and you can see how much she loved Pulp here as Common People was one of her favourite songs.

Rip my beautiful fur baby. Love you so much. Only just turned 6. Cancer is so cruel. No more suffering…

Miss you so much Mollie I hope your round something up, somewhere.

    I am so very sorry Claire! I can’t imagine. We have 2 shih tzus and they are my world! I love them to bits, and tell them that every day.
    My heart goes out to you. I love all of the posts you shared of Mollie, she sounded like a wonderful dog and so beautiful. I know Border Collies are active and smart dogs. Saying prayers for you, think of all of the good times.

    My heart breaks for you Claire! I cannot imagine the pain that you must be enduring. Cancer is such a cruel disease that spans species. Mollie was a beautiful fur baby! Praying that God gives you the peace that surpasses all understanding as you deal and attempt to come to terms with your loss. Thank you for still hosting the party. Prayers!

    I am so so sorry for you! I know the pain of losing such an important part of the family. Take your time to work through the grief, there is no time limit. I know you have had an incredibly tough year and I am praying you find peace very soon. Mollie was absolutely beautiful and you gave her a beautiful life. Such a blessing you were to each other. Sending prayers your way. Take care.

    Oh, I’m so very sorry that you lost your Mollie. I’m so sad for you. I know that, eventually, the wonderful memories will help to replace this terrible grief you’re feeling.

    This is so sad, to loose your best friend at such a young age…
    May she rest a while and then fly all over the meadows at the RB, chasing whatever she wants…
    Hugs to you at this most difficult time.
    (I sent you an email with a memorial card in it, to honor Mollie’s Memory.)

    Very sorry to hear about the loss of your dog. I know how devastated you can feel by losing your pet. She was loved and there was taken great care of her, so she had a good life with you. Maybe you can get a little comfort out of that.


    • 9 August 2021 / 07:43

      Thank you Liz, yes I keep trying to think this now

  11. 9 August 2021 / 06:59

    I am so sorry to read this! I am have always enjoyed your photos of Mollie. She was a beautiful dog. I hope you can enjoy some good memories of her xx

      Thank you Lisa. I have started to go through old blog posts and smile at our time together but it has been so hard

  12. 6 August 2021 / 14:47

    Oh bless you Claire, sending you a huge hug – I must admit to shedding a few tears for you too. Wasn’t long ago I went through with my little fur baby. xxx

    • 9 August 2021 / 07:41

      Thank you Jacqui. I did too when you lost your fur baby too. I knew I was going to be going though this anytime too.

  13. 6 August 2021 / 11:28

    Claire, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Mollie was so beautiful, and was clearly a very dear member of your family and it’s absolutely heartbreaking. I’ve lost a few deeply loved animals over the years and it never gets any easier. I just take comfort in the fact that they had a wonderful life and are no longer in pain. Huge hugs

      Thanks Suzy, I am starting to realise this but it is so hard to get your head around at first.

    So sad, she was so young. What an incredible bond you formed and she leaves such a huge gap in your family. But she leaves love and beautiful memories for you all.

      Thank you Pamela. It is so sad that she was so young. I though we would get a lot older together.

    Dear Claire,
    I am SO heartbroken over your loss. I have been with you since the beginning and have loved every beautiful post you have written and every beautiful photo you have ever shared of precious vivacious Mollie. I share in your grief. It is just about the first anniversary since we have lost our precious Tsunami and not a day goes by that I don’t think about or miss him. Our lives are forever changed by our precious pets. Take all of the time you need to grieve… it is a testimony to the depth of how much you and Mollie loved one another.

    • 9 August 2021 / 07:38

      Thank you so much for your kind words. Aww I remember stopping by so much and seeing photos of Tsunami and thinking how adorable he was. Yes I miss her so much, even when I was typing on the computer she would come over for cuddles xx
