Mollie Bijou one of the brightest stars in the heavens above…
May 18, 2015

Queen Bijou on the couch throne with her baby- -she would growl if anyone tried to take her baby from her!
Mollie also LOVED going for bike-rides, even after i wrecked a couple of times. Luckily with only
a few scrapes, but Mollie was always ready to go for another bike-ride……

Mollie bijou was adopted in 2005 from Houston Humane Society. She was kicked and had broken legs. We calculated her birthday as September 9, 2014. She learned to stand on he front legs to potty. It was really sad and funny. She got her name at a party. Other dog moms put names in a bowl and I chose Mollie (ie like mom Cherie) and bijou. Later when we traveled with my dad to Canada he added alberta to her name. When she was about 2 she lost all her weight and the tips of her beautiful little ears developed ulcers. It took a couple of months for the vet to diagnose EPI. We wouldn’t have made it without all the amazing folks in the forum. These last couple of years we switched to Diane for enzyme. We foster often and it was MBs way of helping the family with expenses 😉

She started getting bloated the last few months. She hated the B12 shots so I was always trying different things to try to keep some vitamins on board. She was looking jaundice recently and panting all the time. We could feel a mass in her belly. She had been through so much I just couldn’t do a full work up. We used some sedation and let he go here in the house with her family and her bear. A brave little girl who always wanted a treat but knew she wasn’t allowed to participate. That is such a hard thing when other dogs are in the family.

I know she would want to help another pup with EPI and we appreciate everything we learned from having her in our lives. I’m sure she crossed the bridge in the ever so sassy swagger with her sunglasses on. Bye my love…….
  My body is gone but I’m always near.
I’m everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I’ll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
We will always carry you with us in our hearts, love your mom, Cherie
