Holly's Story


"In October 2021, I got the devastating news that my dad only had three to six months to live after fighting cancer for five years. My world was turned upside down. My comfort blanket was our beautiful Westie, Molly, who was by my side every day to cuddle and talk to. Sadly, in April 2022, my dad lost his battle and passed away. Part of me died with him".
"Two months after losing Dad, to add to the grief, Molly was very poorly and I had to make the heart-breaking decision to put her to sleep. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make. As she closed her eyes for the last time, another part of me went with her".
"My heart is broken into a million pieces, and some of those pieces are missing forever... but then Jamie and I saw Holly on the Street Hearts BG website. It didn't take long for us to start the adoption process to bring Holly into our family. We were not looking for a dog, but a few clicks on the internet and there she was on my screen... and the rest, as they say, is history".
"Holly has brought a smile back to my heart. She gives me a reason to get out of bed in the morning. The greetings she gives every day are full of love. She is such a happy dog. Taking her out for walks and seeing her face light up is the best feeling. My heart is a long, long way from being fixed, but day by day, Holly pieces it together one piece at a time (and she doesn't even know she is doing it)".
"They say a house is not a home without a dog, and it is true. Holly has made our house come alive again. We can't thank Street Hearts BG enough for bringing Holly into our lives, our home, and our hearts". - Nicola
