According to CNews, Dan and Sara Cannon have agreed to name their first-born child (due in three weeks) after the person who rescues their beloved pup Molly Jane. A Possible Dognapping The Cannons let Molly Jane out into their yard in Richmond, Ontario, on the evening of Jan. 4, and never saw her again.
