The Real-Life Stories Behind the Book

Molly P Napping with Stuffed Animals Nov 18 10 52 15 PM

Before I knew Molly Paws, I had won a stuffed wolf toy at a local county fair a few year back. I named him Wolfy and when my wife and I moved to our house, I put him in one of the chairs in the living room across from where I usually sit on the couch. Molly Paws loves to lay on chairs and claimed the one with Wolfy as hers. Molly never treated him like a chew toy and didn’t seem to mind the stuffed toy sharing her space. She even took to snuggling up to Wolfy like a pillow for naps. Wolfy became Woofy during the proofing process because we thought it would be a cute detail to add.

As a part or our routine, I let the girls out each night between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. to potty. Marley has never liked going outside, even when she was a puppy for potty training. Sometimes she would go right away, but most of the time she would sniff around. And sniff some more. Then sniff other things. And then forget that she had to go potty. We’d come inside and she’s be asking to go outside right away because she remembered that she still needs to go potty. While she has outgrown it mostly, she still gets what we call “Puppy Brain” where she goes out and then gets distracted.
