    Abby, my 13 1/2 year old Schnauzer died in our arms last evening. We knew the time was approaching and you think you’re ready for it.
    Nope. Not ready at all.
    A wonderful companion who hung on every word, every morsel, was so excited to see us come home, who loved to be with us wherever that was.
    I never cried when I got diabetes or had a heart attack or had bypass surgery or got cancer or lost my bladder. I’ve cried more in the last 15 hours than in the last 40 years.
    Our dogs are truly our best friends. I sure miss her. I’ll never forget her. I’m so glad I got nearly a quarter of my life to spend with her.
    Give your dog a hug today. I wish I could.


    Greg: I am so, so sorry to hear about Abby. I know what you are going through as we had lost our Toy Fox Terrier, who was over 18, a couple of years ago. I have tears now just thinking about him. As time goes on the tears will lessen and you will be able to think of her with a smile. She knew how much she was loved and I am sure loved you all. My sincere condolences.

    So sorry to hear of your loss Greg and family. We lost our Choli who was with us 14 years, a few months ago. I fully understand what you and your family are going through.


    Oh Greg! So sorry to learn of losing Abby. Our pets be they dogs or some other companion bring such special blessings to our lives. They truly do become part of our families and we treat them as such. We’ve lost our share of lovable pets over the years so I understand the feeling of loss. When I lost my bunny Bear this past June I cried more than I had for quite some time as she and her partner Panda that we fortunately still have were and have been a source of comfort while I was enduring the trials and tribulations of BC surgery and BCG treatments. 13 1/2 is quite old for a dog and yes she was with you for quite a span of your life. Hopefully in time your grief will lessen and you will be able to to focus on the good memories. Take care our friend. (BBBIIIIGGGG HHHUUUGGGGSSS) 🙁


    Asha, our german shepherd, was 11. We still miss her unconditional love.
    My heart hurts for you and yours with the loss of Abby.


    I think that is what makes pets so beloved and special; their unconditional love. They seem to know when you need support and often show it by being extra cuddly, they are happy when you are (especially dogs) they get so excited if you are


    Greg, I am so sorry for the pain you and your family are going through. I hope the pain lessens with each day that passes. Sending hugs to you all.


    So sorry to hear about Abby’s passing Greg. There’s just nothing like a doggie kiss when you need one is there?? Mike and I are sending hugs from here. Hope it eases your sadness a little.



    Just got here, Greg, but know that I am giving you a big hug , and happy that you had each other. Nothing like a pet to keep us happy, and nothing like a good guy to keep them happy.

    Love to you both, Jeanne


    Greg, so sorry. We are never ready no matter that we know its coming. Hang in there….


    Greg, so sorry to hear about your loss. Here’s a hug and an extra prayer for you.


    Sorry to hear about the loss of your “best friend”…..take care, Carol


    Greg, my sincere condolences. I know the feeling, I had to do that with Kirby two years ago. I still cry at least once a week. I don;t think a second goes by that I don’t think of him. I lost a big piece of myself that night. I wish I could take your grief away. It really hurts a lot.
