Time does fly! Remembering Abby and your dedication to her well being. Wondering often why these beautiful beings couldn't be with us longer.

Give Duncan a scratch or two for me.

Barb,
Three years doesn't seem possible. It's amazing how much our hearts expand to love in so many different ways. These fur babies have so much to teach us as long as we are open to learning from them.

Missing your sweet Abby. Glad You have Duncan to love and make you smile.

How can this simple animal teach us anything ? they look nothing like us dont speak our language cant even drive a car .

well there are things out there that we just cant see and dogs and small children can see . they have an understanding that just naturally comes to them that we struggle to comprehend . Maybe our logic gets in the way

Jesses education process of me gave me a touch of that other special place that maybe most think lives in our imagination but really it exists and is very real

maybe once in our life is that very special spirit that lifts up up beyond what we could do ourselves and abby was one of those for you barb . It forever changed you for the better which means abby became apart of you forever as her personality became part of yours

I feel guilty sometimes when I look at my needy Ranger and miss my Jenny. But Abby was definitely a special sweet girl so I get your feelings.

Abby... it's hard when the anniversary of a dog's passing falls on a day that marks so much. We lost a kitty on New Year's Eve years ago.

Scary how fast the time goes by. Our once "baby" Jack, adopted at about one year of age shortly after Chris passed away, is now nine years old.

Abby was such a sweet and beautiful girl. Not the sort of thing you ever get over...

Came across this on a Westie site that I belong to today, so I can not help posting here. My Abby still fills my heart after 5 years of losing her.

Grief never ends, but it changes.
It's a passage, not a place to stay
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith
It is the price of love....
