R.I.P. Dear Abby

DSC02086    3

Our sweet Abby had a stroke tonight - we had to make an emergency trip.

It was time.  Her back legs had been failing her lately.

There's lots of pics here, I want to remember her.

And just - a few days ago.

She rallied enough at the vet's to sniff all over the room, sniffing good sniffs and playing like a puppy.  I'm so glad we got to see her walk again before we said good-bye.

RIP darling girl, you'll be missed.

And an eternity of thanks to my sister-in-law, without whose help we wouldn't have made it tonight.  Bless you, Juliet.

Dearest Abby, lovely photos in the snow, looking through the fence. Goodbye is so hard, but with you there, maybe the best way for a loving farewell. Hugs, as we share in your sadness. So many of us have been there, but for each of us, the loss is huge, and so personal. Take time to grieve, and have memories in your heart always.

Awwwwwwwww Allie I'm so sorry about Abby - she's a beautiful girl (how old was she?) and the fact that she'll be so greatly missed, is testament to how much she was loved. I feel your pain, but I know she was greeted at The Rainbow Bridge by all of our much-loved furbabies, and they're showing her the GOOD spots now ... and maybe a few naughty ones.

Dear Allie --- I'm so sorry to hear the news about sweet Abby (love those photos). It's such a sad time when a beloved pet dies, but it always helps me to make a little mourning quilt in their honor. You're so artistic -- perhaps you could design an Abby embroidery pattern.
