Abby
7/28/2009 - 6/3/2020We spent 11 great years together. She moved with me, slept with me, traveled with me. She was there through every boyfriend and breakup. She was there when I brought home orphaned animals. She was there when I met and married my husband. She was there when I had my daughter. For 11 years she was there.

I know like many pet owners that coming to the decision of it being “time” was one of the biggest challenges I’ve faced. I doubted my decision as she jumped up on the couch when my husband arrived home and grabbed her ball. But I grew confident in my decision as I watched her body fail her and she could barely keep up with us on our walk from the car to our front door.

She loved food. She loved squeaky toys. She always had a blanket that she would sleep under. She never learned any tricks but would sit back on her hind legs and beg, sticking out her tongue. She loved kittens and puppies. She grew very tolerant of my daughter.

I keep randomly hearing the tip tap of her little paws on our hardwoods. Or see her in the corner of my eye. It takes me a minute to realize I have to clean up the cheerio my daughter threw on the floor, because she was giving it to Abby and Abby was a little vacuum cleaner.

This is super hard. She was a very good girl. Thank you to Dr. Jennifer for making her so comfortable.

I’m so sorry for your loss. It is felt by the whole family since she was such a big part of you. She was such a great little dog and I know how much she was loved and gave love.Donna Knock - June 4, 2020
