beach dog full of joy makes Molly's heart melt

I promised to post this video ages ago, and never did. Partly because I couldn't convince Molly to let me show her "without hair, makeup, or adult behavior."

:-) She gets pretty emotional in the video (in a good way) and even cries a little because she loves Kanga so much. It was taken very early in the morning, and we had just rolled out of bed, so we both look a little messy.

It was Kanga's third time walking on the beach, she was three months old, and she was having a ball. She didn't care what we looked like.

Molly jokes that she regressed to age four in the video. She even talks like a child, and she doesn't normally. When I saw what an open state she was in, my journalist background made me ask her lots of questions that really "drew out" her emotions.

I finally got her to give me permission to post it. After all, the whole point of this site, and of my book and work, is to celebrate exactly the kind of heart opening she experienced that January day on the beach. She had just realized how badly she'd wanted a dog of her own, her whole life, and was so happy ... and so was I, to see it.

So while this is a very raw and intimate family video, I know that this community will understand and connect to it and be tender with her feelings. Dog lovers get it, right?

Now, go hug your dog(s)!

Very touching. Thanks for sharing such an emotional and tender experience with us. I love that we regress back to our childhood. These little angels in fur coats (Bailey & Dodi) make me feel young and alive when I rumble and tumble with them. Bailey, my 12 year old, developed a hard red lump (grows out, but moves around) in the last two months that has to come out. Not sure what it is, but please remember to say a little prayer. I'm sure they'd rather be running on the beach with Kanga. You are very blessed to have such a beautiful family and a beautiful place to live. Jenny, Bailey & Dodi from Vancouver, Canada

Both Molly and Kanga are beautiful. You are lucky to have the love of both of them. Thank Molly for sharing her feelings with us. She is so sweet and generous to show herself at such a vulnerable moment. What a dear soul she is.

How beautiful and touching! You can tell that Molly is going through the healing process after the devistating loss of Maui and is learning to love again thanks to Kanga. Thank you for sharing the honest, the love and your new found joy.

This was a delight to see and share with you three. My dogs are my life now that I am retired and partially disabled. I live alone, as far as people go, but my life is rich with companionship and love from my 4 legged family. They take care of me as much as I do them. Thank you all for sharing those sweet moments.
Love Roberta,Aussie,Azali,Quigley,Kirby,Adora, AhMahr,Precious and Fluffy

Molly, if that is what you look like early in the morning then James you are a very lucky man. You have the sweetest smile and those dimples. Thank you for allowing James to share the video. One of your posters said some one is never more lovely than when they are loving their dogs. I COULDN'T AGREE MORE. Thank for the intimate look into your little family. P.S. I loved the look Kanga gave her "Mama" when the water finally reached her little paws. She looked up like she was asking what the heck was that! Simply priceless!

James, that is a wonderful & candid recording of your two beloved girls. Very sweet. Molly, thanks for allowing us to share your time with Kanga & James.

One thing I would like to ask you to do is to invest in a halter for Kanga. It is so much safer for their delicate little necks and you never know when she might be jerked by the neck either by her own movements or by unplanned movements by someone else or their dog. It will help in keeping Kanga from developing a collapsing trachea later in life.
God Bless you all.
