Me and Holly ....

Last night I told you all how I got my name. Tonight I will tell you how Holly got her name. Holly was my big sister. She is not around anymore. I am not really sure where she went .. but she was very old so I think I know.

Holly was a Christmas present to the kids that used to live in this house. The kids were in elementary school and they had watched a Haley Mills movie before Christmas. They wanted to name her Haley at first, but since they got her for Christmas .... decided to name her Holly ... as in a Holly bush. At least that is what they tell me.

One day the girl in the family had to make a certain kind of poem for school and she wrote this:

Holly Polly rode the trolly,
To and from the city.
She was very pretty.
And so was her friend Molly.

My Mom still remembers that poem. If I had been a girl, my name would have been Molly .... I guess. This picture is of me when I was about a year old and Holly was 14.

Holly looks like a sweet little old lady. There was an old dog living at my house when I moved in, too. And she was an itty bitty thing. Linda still gets teary when she talks about her. I hope I never get old.
Big Wags,

Oh, poor Holly. But, I think I know where she went. She went to Rainbow Bridge. Do you know about Rainbow Bridge, Copper? I learned about Rainbow Bridge this year.

Wow, Holly must have had a great life! I hope you didn't drive her crazy before she left for the Rainbow Bridge.

Holly looks like she was nice. We hope we make it to 14 years old and can see new little dachsies. But no more new ones now! There are three of us already. You were lucky to get to meet her.

What a sweet story, especially with Hershey's mom being the girl who wrote the poem!

Saw your post on Pippin's page. I'd be your girl but it would have to be platonic cause I've been fixed (didn't know I was broken!) and I am a little tall and large for you!
