UPDATE ON MOLLY from Michelle:
I know some of you have been asking for an update on Molly. She’s doing well! After being in the doggie ICU for 5 days, she finally came home on Saturday. She thankfully beat the odds of sepsis and quickly responded to the IV antibiotics. Additionally, they gave her a form of a chemo transfusion to suppress her immune system to “restart it” into being normal again.

She is very happy to be home, and took a 2-hour nap (in which she slept on her back and snored extremely loudly—see video) upon her return home. She is slowly beginning to walk again, and is back to her usual tricks of begging for “snacks.” However, she hasn’t entirely escaped the hospital, as she is on SIX medications, for a total of NINE pills/day. Molly is not a big fan of pills (as she managed to eat all the food in her bowl except for the three pills in there), but she is now tricked into taking them using Greenies Pill Pockets.

For now, we’re still not 100% sure about what caused this, but the vet thinks it is an autoimmune disease, that once Molly’s immune system turns on, it doesn’t know how to turn itself off. We are still waiting for one final test result to come back to be sure. In addition, she has a follow up visit with the vet to re-check her blood work to ensure she is getting better and better!

HUGE thanks for all your support. This is the best outcome that we could have asked for!


Little Miss Molly Connelly, Michelle's adorable shih tzu, started having some trouble walking last week. The vet was able to rule out foot problems and tick diseases. The vet put Molly on steroids hoping she'd get better in a few days. Unfortunately, she didn't bounce back the way we'd hoped.

Now Molly has a systemic infection and will be in the in the doggie hospital for the next few days receiving IV antibiotics. The next few days are critical.

Please help us raise money to help Michelle pay for the impending vet bills associated with Molly's illness and send positive thoughts her way!
