Desmond and Molly

A young boy enjoys growing up with his “nanny dog”

By Amanda Fitzgerald

This picture shows my son Desmond and my pit mix Molly on Halloween. He was a firefighter and Molly his faithful fire dog!

Molly is so wonderful with Desmond – although we do have to intervene with all the kisses he receives from her. We had Molly before our son, and since the day we brought him home from the hospital she has been a wonderful dog.

In the morning, she sits outside his door and whines, waiting for him to get up. Desmond can be rough with her but is learning, and she always takes it in stride. I never worry about letting him play in the background with Molly protecting him. I couldn’t ask for a better dog for my child. They aren’t known as the “nanny dog” for nothing!

    The picture is so cute! Pit bulls don’t hold back with the kisses, so I can see that you might have to intervene, lol One thing about pit bulls, their tongues are always at the ready!
