ASPCA Happy Tails: Molly, Stay Forever Young!
Everybody remembers Sassythe saucy Beagle whose youthful exuberance disguised her true age. We’re happy to report that the popular pooch (now known as Molly) is happily living with Bronx, NY, resident Floree Jackson and her loving family. On September 19, the day after Floree’s 26th birthday, the demonstrative canine became the missing puzzle piece for the Jacksons’ growing family. Now eight years old, Molly has a new name and a new lease on life. We recently caught up with the family matriarch and her fun-loving fur kid.
“Molly’s doing great!” Floree enthuses. “She has claimed the love seat by the front window as her ownshe is really laid back, and gets along great with my kids.”
It seems Molly is finally enjoying the quiet wisdomand the joy of nappingthat comes with middle age. “She likes to sleep on her back on any pillow or pile of clothes!” Floree reports.
But don’t be fooledMolly hasn’t totally left her puppy ways behind. Just as this former wiggle worm gets used to her new two-legged parents and siblings, so, too, is Floree adjusting to the unique habits of the canine kind. She says, “Molly is my first dog, so it’s funny to see her sniff in circles before she goes to the bathroom. She is definitely getting accustomed to my work schedule and wakes up with my alarm clock.”
“Molly is a wonderful addition to the family,” Floree adds. “She is a great pet for my children and fits right in. She’s made us the ‘typical family’mom, dad, kids and a beautiful Beaglewho could ask for anything better?”
