Milestone alert!

Cue the bells and whistles!

Sweet little Molly has made it a record day here at Greater Grafton — we closed the day at 1,627 hits, mostly driven by links from the fantastic Universal Hub and a LiveJournal community dedicated to cute animals.

And we’ve had our 1,500th comment — isn’t that worth joining the blog, Jessica?

Finally, before finishing off little Molly, I’m going to link you to a whole mess of photos and video. The videos are QuickTime, which I’m unable to embed or link to directly.

Oh, and by the way? Molly’s on Boston.com, the AP story has been picked up by newspapers around the world and —  it appeared here first (thanks Michelle)! You know who doesn’t have it online? A certain newspaper that has Mendon in its circulation area…

Good night sweet spotted girl!

  1. What a scoop by GG, Giraffe-gate. Yes I’m guilty of a lot of hits, once my daughter got a peek at the Giraffe she kept wanting to see it.

  2. We only -gate scandals. (Wags finger) That would be something like, say, a giant python escaping the animal hospital and swallowing frolicking dogs in the dog-walk area. Or a commuter train. Your choice; it’s fiction so this could be a REALLY big snake.
