our sweet Abby dog went to heaven yesterday.
she had an amazing day on Saturday.
my parents took her shopping at Petsmart, she was having a ball walking around the
store checking out all the treats, toys and other puppies in the grooming area.
she got a bone-yo (our nickname for bones) and was in hog-heaven.
she even went to visit my Grandpa for a bit.
they came home and she seemed to be doing great.
when my Mom woke up on Sunday morning she knew something was wrong.
Abby was really weak and had a very hard time getting out of her crate.
after collapsing a few times, she seemed content to just lay and cuddle.
I went over around 7am and we all just snoodled with her.
her breathing was very rapid and shallow, her heart was racing,
and her tummy was more swollen.
she was loving the cuddles, but we could tell she wasn’t happy.
we knew she was suffering.
Abby passed away peacefully around 10:30am.
and while it was absolutely heartbreaking for us, we knew
she was up in heaven, greeted by my Grandma and cousin Brad,
and getting lots of love from Kelsey dog, which gave us some comfort.
Looking back over the last year…
Abby has been camping,
boating, 4 wheeling,
swimming at the lake,
had sleep overs with Diz & I and with Poshie,
been running with us,
& most definitely been spoiled rotten.
Found out she loves licking jello pudding cups, greek yogurt cups,
loves pretzels, macadamia nuts and cheese sticks.
(not that we fed her that stuff ALL the time, just every once & awhile)
Abby also loved licking the shower floor every morning after my Mom showered.
Loved her ‘baby’ (a stuffed sheep).
& most importantly, she loved us!
