Abby Jan 2010 - 10 May 2024

Recommended Posts

Well, it was one hell of a long ride.

Mother's day doesn't bode well for my animals. I lost my first pet as an adult (g-pig) on Mother's day in 2001.

We lost Jet on Mother's day in 2013.

2 years ago Jeff said Abby would choose Mother's Day. And she didn't. Last year, he said Mother's Day. And she didn't. Well, Mother's Day is Sunday, so I guess she did me a favor, though I think it is close enough to continue the curse. 

She had a good, long life. She's been old for a few years. We've had old girl problems for 2.5 years. I maintain, making old dog decisions is the worst. It doesn't get easier. It still sucks, big time.

Rest well, my sweet Abbi-Doodle, you've earned it.

Abby was simply magnificent :heart I gasped when I saw her name and here I am crying for a dog I never met. I mean, 14 and you know it's coming but damn, it stings just the same and it never, ever gets any easier. Trudy and Jeff, I am so very sorry it was Abby's time. What opportunities you gave her and what a life she lived, her very best life. 

Rest easy, sweet girl.

So sorry for your loss. Manny is almost 12, and since his amputation has slowed down quite a bit. He still enjoys life....yet I know the day is coming too soon.

I'm so very sorry. She had an awesome run, but it's still sad that your magnificent girl had to go.

Godspeed Abby.

Abby had the most beautiful coat. With the northern lights she has now been upgraded, from Great Dane to Grand Dane,

Jeff and Trudy, was Abby with you during your Alaska years?

Such a majestically beautiful dog.  And a loyal friend to you.  All of our sympathy to all who love her.

We moved to AL in 2010. We picked up Abby in April 2011.

The day she came home

More from that first weekend. Tavarish was thrilled to have somebody to really play with.

We need an additional button, because Abby's pics are more than "Like"

I'm so sorry.  Even with all the old girl issues, I bet you wish she was still with you.  I miss our Danes as much as any of our babies and they've been gone since 2004.

I’m so sorry for your loss 

Jan with precious pups Emmy (Stormin J Flag) and Simon (Nitro Si) and Abbey Field.  Missing my angels: Bailey Buffetbobleclair 11/11/98-17/12/09; Ben Task Rapid Wave 5/5/02-2/11/15; Brooke Glo's Destroyer 7/09/06-21/06/16 and Katie Crazykatiebug 12/11/06 -21/08/21. My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

I am hoping she sends you signs.  Regardless, she will be with you always.  Only her body died. Her beautiful spirit-what you love because that is who she is- is just completing the journey all living things must.  Be open minded. You will recognize it if she does because you will recognize her energy.  As Einstein pointed out-everything is energy. Hugs.
