ME: In May of 2019, I began to share my home with a 3-month old Black Lab Puppy named Molly. The story of how that came about can be found here. If you were to research the breeds of dogs that might be recommended for a 73-year-old with arthritis in most joints, a slipped disk and a bum knee, Black Labs would probably not appear on the list.

MOLLY: I lived with a family in a big city. I was still getting used to being in a home without my mother and brothers and sisters. I liked this human family, but one day some strangers came and drove me away to the country and said this was my new home. I’m just a dog and didn’t get a vote. But they turned out to be really nice and I like living in the country.
