As I watched them together, there was no denying it. I knew Molly being with them was how it should be.
This evening, I got the below e-mail from Judy:
I think Molly must have read the playbook for how to win the perfect dog award.. She has chosen to lie quietly within a few feet of us ever since we arrived home. Late afternoon she starred in a SKYPE call with our kids in Brussels. Of course, they thought she was beautiful. Then she ate her dinner, went out for a very brief walk and did her business. She came home and has now joined us in the tv room where she is lying at Dick's feet after licking his hand.
She is still a bit tentative but I am very encouraged that she will relax in the next few days.
We couldn't be happier that Miss Molly has joined our family.
So, no forever home for Max, and I am not disappointed. Because as I just said, it's how it should be.
