I would just like thank you all for your kind words and prayers. I am so blessed to have such great people in my life (and on the web).
Molly is recovering and seems to be doing really well. We drove down to their house on Saturday, and she was her usual cute self. The teeth marks on her cheeks had faded and her lip swelling had gone down. She was comfortable around her dogs...throwing the ball to them and herding them into their kennel when playtime was over. I'm so glad that this incident hasn't soured her towards all pups.
At my house, my kids have processed the incident and are ready to move on. Reilly said to me last night, "Mom, can we not talk about this anymore?"
I'm trying to move on, but still harbor feelings of guilt. Molly did absolutely nothing to provoke the bite, and the puppy had exhibited some aggressive behaviors before this occurred.
Anyway, I am tired of talking about it, and am going to try to move on...let sleeping dogs lie;)
Thanks again for the encouraging words.
