I don't know why, but I brought the dogs to the beach this morning before work and let Molly "hunt 'em up'" for the first time since her Oct. spinal surgery. She was out for about an hour and opened up on a rabbit for about 5 minutes (conditions were not great, it's been storming for 3 days). It's the first time I've heard her voice in 8 mos. MUSIC TO MY EARS! I'll see how she is tommorrow, and if all goes well, she is officially out of retirement! I am one happy camper, as is she!! I love this dog! Take care, Belinda.
