Puppies Are Better Than Apologies

July 23, 2009 at 8:53 am 15 comments

I am having the worst blogger’s block ever. I know, I know. Second time this week. I think it’s because I’m really tired. (No, I’m not pregnant, I’m just tired. I’m allowed to be tired and not be pregnant.) So instead of coming up with a bunch of junk and then apologizing for it later, I’ll show you pictures of Molly. For all of you newbies, Molly is my mom’s dog. She got her from my dad for her 50th birthday.

I’ve shown you a few pictures of her in the past. This is me when I kidnapped her one day.


This is why I kidnapped her. You can’t leave a puppy alone when she looks at you like this:


You just can’t. She’s always had that cute, innocent look to her. I think the breeders trained her to look like that. Deep down she’s pretty evil. Just look at her trying to attack my mom’s face the night they brought her home.


I know what you’re thinking. “Silly Chelsea. That’s not a dog! That’s a guinnea pig.” You may be right. I’m not sure. All I know is that she barks… you be the judge of that. I’m just here to show you cute pictures.


I think she’s trying to bite my mom’s neck here. I’m telling you, this chick is trouble.

Every now and then she’ll do something really cute so that you let your guard down.


This was her trick at the beginning. She loved to sleep on our shoulders. We aren’t sure what to make of it. We have a few theories. She’s either trying to be cute. Or she’s the little devil on our shoulders. Or she thinks she’s a bird. The latter is her namesake. They played with the name “Polly”… it didn’t work. So my sister’s friend recommended Molly. It felt right.


Awww, yeah I know. I can hear you. Yes, she’s cute. She looks more like the angel on her shoulder. Everyone looks innocent while they are sleeping. But what about when she’s awake? Just look at her, feeling trapped in this life. She wants out. She’s longing to be wild.


A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to catch her living her double life. She had sweet-talked my brother and grandma into supporting her behavior. I’m so thankful I had my camera with me or you’d never believe me.


No Shih-Tzus were harmed in the making of this presentation. Well maybe one of them, but don’t worry, only her pride was hurt. For the record, we found out later that Molly was downing an O’Douls. PETA, you can move along.

    I love picture blogs! I’ve started to try and add them to mine since they seem to make the flow better.

    Also, I think all dogs like beer!

    How cute! I would kidnap her too!
    P.s. The disclaimer to PETA seriously made me LOL

    Too cute! I’ve never seen a dog sleep on someones shoulder before — but you’re right, it is probably to make you think she is sweet!

    Molly is too cute!!! Thanks for sharing!

    Too cute on the dog. First it was O’Doul’s and then the dog will be wanting to break out the good bottles of wine.I will ignor the UT tee shirt that your mom is wearing (me being a Baylor U grad and all). And it is also jarring to think that your mother is only one year old than I.

    Your Mom looks so young!!!

    Also, the picture of Molly drinking a beer = PRICELESS!! you should make a Mastercard commercial/blog post and end with something like that….HI-LARIOUS! 🙂

    awwww – I forgot how little she was when we got her!! She DID look like a guinea pig! She IS a devil somedays though…like today, she ate Zoe’s food AGAIN!!!! I can’t turn my back on her for one second or she is over there eating it. It is much better than her own, of course cause the grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side…. 🙂

    P.S. THANKS DEBBIE, whomever you are, for the lovely comment on my age! 🙂 And to DebbieQ, Hook ‘Em!

    Being anti-beer myself, I can’t really comment on this but I would think that O’Douls would be some of the foulest stuff on earth. The nasty taste of bad beer AND no alcohol?! My parents had a dog once whose favorite thing to do was drink beer with my dad while we were cooking out on the grill. Travis, RIP…

    Having met Molly, I can affirm that she is one of the cutest animals God has ever breathed life into.

    Molly is sooooo cute! I like her impatient dance the best. Too bad you can’t really capture that in a picture.

  • 11. Jill  |  July 23, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    Hehehe! That last picture is hilarious! She is absolutely adorable! I love doggies, especially little shih tzus 🙂

  • 12. Kristin  |  July 23, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    She was the cutest frickin’ puppy! When in doubt post pups and bambinos. They’re always winners!

  • 13. Aurelie  |  July 23, 2009 at 3:13 pm

    Molly is adorable. At least she’s drinking non-alcoholic beer!

  • 14. Natalie  |  July 24, 2009 at 2:45 pm

    My dog LOVES beer.

  • 15. Candi  |  July 26, 2009 at 11:52 pm
