Good-bye Faithful Friend

Check out this post on my NEW blog!

A couple of weeks ago we had to unexpectedly say good-bye to our dog, Abby.



We knew someday it would happen, just not that day!

Our family first met her when my son brought her home at four weeks.

A neighbor down the block was giving away puppies because the mother stopped nursing. There were 11 puppies and this is the one my son brought home. Convincing hubby and me that he’ll take care of her we decided to keep her. Our son kept his end of the bargain.

Kitty (her nickname) loved to hold paws!

Abby was nicknamed Kitty after the family watch Monsters Inc. Like the monster called Kitty by the little girl in the movie Abby grew rather HUGE so we started calling her Kitty!

Now over 12 years over we bid her farewell. Hearts heavy.

  1. I am so sorry for your loss! I went through this with Miss Muggins two years ago, and I still keenly miss her. They are such a fabric of our lives and it makes it so hard when they are no longer with us. Hugs to you!

  2. I was so sorry to hear of her passing. Pets really are family members and take a piece of our hearts with them when they go. At least they let us love them while they are here.

  3. I’m so sorry to hear of Abby’s passing. I would say something sappy, like think of the Rainbow Bridge. But that never comforts me when I start to missing my fur-babies. Hugs to you and hubby. I know she is in your hearts. And you in hers.

  4. Thank you friends!! It has been challenging on so many levels.

  5. I am so, so sorry! I understand how it feels to lose a wonderful doggie companion. My heart goes out to you and your family.
