In Loving Memory of Molly for Mary Cunningham "Rainbow Bridge Memorial Giveaway" (Winner #1)

This is "Molly "pet of
Mary Cunningham
and this is what she had to say about her

She adopted us when she was about 3, at least that's the age we were given by the Miami Animal Shelter. Her first mom died and a neighbor brought Molly into the shelter because there were no relatives to take her. Lucky us.

We'd considered getting a dog for several years because my husband traveled during the week and I was getting a little lonely.

He missed Molly on his first trip through the shelter, but on a second trip (he felt compelled to give one more look) past the cages of older dogs, there she was; sitting with as much dignity as a little lady could muster behind two barking German shepherds. My husband asked to meet her and the rest is at first sight.

Molly left us more than two years ago. We had 13 years with her, and if we'd had our druthers, we'd have 13 more.

When Molly died, I was in the middle of writing the 4th book, The Magician's Castle, in my 'Tween series, Cynthia's Attic. I developed severe writers' block and wasn't sure I'd be able to finish the book. Gracious friends suggested I make Molly a character in the book. I did, and she is one of my favorite all-time characters.

I'll close with a suggestion of my own. Please consider adopting a dog or cat. You might be lucky enough to get a Molly!
