Blue Opal’s Mollymook    –       Summer

Blue Opal's MollymookMolly” is one of Sydney’s girls.  She is so, so sweet we could not give her up; consequently, she is our family pet.   Due to her height (22 inches at her shoulders) she  is considered a Small Standard or Large Medium. Since she is always on our laps we are glad she only weighs 35lbs. We are considering breeding Molly when she comes into season next June or July.
