After losing our 15 year old springer spaniel, Maggie, in early June this year to a ruptured abdominal tumor, my husband and I, along with our 10 year old beagle, Daisy, were devastated. Daisy didn't know life without Maggie. Just after Maggie's death, Daisy had to have ACL surgery, which made her even more dependent on us. Daisy got more depressed each day, so we decided she needed a buddy - another Maggie dog. We decided to adopt a rescue springer through MAESSR, which is an excellent organization. We knew we had to wait until Daisy's rehab was finished, so started the adoption process the end of August. We were approved and found 6 year old Molly Marie on the list. She sounded very similar to Maggie and really touched our hearts because of her story. She had such a rough life, being abandoned by her owners because of mammary tumors. She was turned into a shelter with a HUGE tumor plus smaller ones, and bad ear infections. We don't know how long she was on her own. The first shelter wanted to euthanize her because they assumed the tumors were cancerous. Someone there got Molly into a second shelter and someone there contacted MAESSR and they took her. She had two surgeries for tumors, had bad ear infections taken care of and was in a wonderful foster home. I can never thank Renee enough for the care and love she gave Molly before we became her forever family. It was love at first sight when we met Molly on adoption day, Oct. 14. She’s helped heal our hearts and given us more than we could ever give back to her. And Daisy – she’s back to her old self again due to her new best friend, Molly Marie.
