Upon my doctor’s recommendation, I went to our neighborhood pharmacy to pick up some Listerine mouthwash. I was excited to find the bottle of “Listerine Naturals.” Inside the bottle was a clear liquid, a noticeable contrast to the impossibly blue “Cool Mint” version sitting on the shelf next to it. Eager to figure out the difference between the regular stuff and the “natural” version, I started comparing the labels.
We’ve started taking Molly to Dr. Palmquist, a holistic veterinarian who practices both Western and Eastern medicine. One of the foods he recommended for her healing is bone broth, telling me: “There some magic stuff in those bones.” I’m inclined to agree.
Ever since Molly joined our family a little more than a year ago, I’ve been wanting to tell you all about her… but never quite seemed to get around to it. Well, it’s time to fix that. This post has turned into a rather long one — but I need to write this for my own peace of mind, and maybe you’ll get something out of it too.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with love, family, friends, gratitude…and garlic.
