Abbie Girl, you will be missed so much. You have been a huge part of our family for 13 years. How do we say goodbye to such a loyal and loving companion? Mom and Dad gave you to me for my 20th birthday. You were so tiny with the BIGGEST ears. I was in love from the moment I saw you.
You were with me when I moved into my first apartment, you helped me get through nursing school, you were there when I went on my first date with Joel, you were there the day I headed off to my wedding, you welcomed three beautiful brothers into our home. So much has happened in our thirteen years together.
You have always been a daddy's girl.
This is what we call an "Abbie Hat".
You had no problem claiming your space in our bed.
You have been the best dog. So obedient, loving, gentle, and never short on kisses.
(Abbie and Clayton)
We are so sad to see you go, but we know it is time. We love you too much to let you go on like this. You will be able to see again, hear again, run again and do all the great things that dogs love to do. You were the BEST dog!!!!! WE LOVE YOU, ABBIE!!! You will always hold a special place in our hearts.
