A Tribute to Miniature Schnauzer Abby

Miniature Schnauzer, We love and miss you

My husband and I got Abby after the loss of my pomeranian, Chelsea. I was so sad from losing her that I gave all my love, heart and affection to Abby. She was the most loving, smart, beautiful, and spoiled doggie. Two years later our daughter was born and she welcomed her into her heart too. Abby ate Morgan's toys and crayons, but Morgan just gave her new ones to play with. When Morgan began to sleep in her toddler bed, Abby slept with her every night. When it was time for Morgan to go to bed and my husband and I were still up, we would just say to Abby "go to bed with Morgan" and she would go right to bed with her. Morgan is very lonely without her best friend. She asked me the other day what she was going to do now without Abby. I just cried.

Abby had diabetes and other health issues that took her from us. I know that she is not suffering anymore, but I still miss her so much and I wish she were here with us. She was such a big part of our family and she will always have a piece of our hearts. My husband was the only one that she ever gave her kisses to. I got to snuggle with her on the couch and Morgan got to share her toys (and crayons) and bed time with her.

We are now coming home at an earlier time at night, because we were avoiding coming home for the first week, because it was to hard to come home to an empty house. I still hear little noises in the house, and I think that it is Abby. And maybe it is, just to let me know that she is ok and I will see her again one day.

We love you so much Abby and you will never be forgotten. Thank you for being apart of our lives. We miss you.

thinking of you
by: Sarah

I know what you are going through. I just lost my Annie last month. I live alone and in the country so it is very quiet and lonely. I have created a photo album with every picture I have ever taken and it gives me comfort to look at. Just know that Abby is waiting for you and is playing with my Annie and they are happy and healthy. All my sympathy and prayers to you and your family

I know how hard it must have been for you to see your Abby so sick. I also know that you, her daddy, and her sister brought her so much joy and comfort even when she felt bad. I am so sorry for your loss.

Beautiful Abby
by: Fritz's Mom

I am so sorry for the loss of your Abby....it sounds like you had a wonderful 10 yrs together! What time we have with our furbabies however is never enough...I had 15 yrs with my beautiful Jake. I posted a tribute to him here as well. Jake passed away on Feb 3,2010 due to congestive heart failure. He was my only dog so like you, the house was too empty and quiet each night after he was gone...I cried daily for weeks. Jake was a rescue and I have since adopted another miniature schnauzer rescue named Fritz. I made a point to adopt one different from Jake so I wouldn't make comparisons. So Fritz is different color..different ears.

I would like to share a poem I have shared on other sites...I copied it but the person I copied it from did not know who wrote it. May it provide you comfort and peace...

I Haven't Left At All

I saw you gently weeping as you looked through photographs
You paused for just a moment at one that made you laugh.
But as you turned more pages the tears began to flow
You whispered that you missed me but I want you to know;
I softly licked those stinging tears that down your cheeks did fall
I want to help you understand I haven?t left at all.

On those days that you are overcome with sorrow, pain and grief
I rest my head upon your leg to offer some relief.
When you take our walking path I?ve seen you turn around
Because I know you surely heard my paws upon the ground.

At night while you are sleeping I snuggle at your side
You stroke my fur as you touch that place where I used to lie.
You said it?s just your heart playing tricks upon your mind
But rest assured I?m really there, my spirit?s left behind.

I know your heart is hurting; it?s like an open sore
You think my life has ended and you won?t see me anymore.
But for those of us bound tight by love, death is not the curtain call;
It?s really the eternal beginning that waits for us all
So, dear Master as you live your life I patiently await
For us to be together when you pass through Heaven?s gate.

My sincere condolences
by: The Sassy 7 Pack

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know that Abby brought lots of love and devotion to your family. I hope some day soon you will find it in your heart to get your daughter another schnauzer to sleep in bed with her.

I'm so sorry!
by: Peggy

It is just so hard to lose such a dear friend. The grief is so deep at the beginning and even though time takes the edge off, you will always feel that pang in your heart for dear little Abby. Thank you for sharing what a good dog she was.

Beautiful Abby
by: Barbiegirl

I am so sorry for your loss of your beautiful Abby. She sounded like a very loving and sweet baby. They touch our hearts in such a special way that it is so hard when they are no longer here with us but they will always be in our hearts. I lost my beloved Lucky with a collapsed trachea on May 19, 2010. It is so hard not to see her around. I too think I see and hear her around. I hope the beautiful memories you have of Abby will help you and your family with the pain of your loss. I know Abby and Lucky are playing together free of pain at the rainbow bridge until we are together with them again.

I am so sorry to hear about your Abby. I know your pain. I lost my Gus on March 31, 2010 to lymphoma cancer. I know what you mean, you have to change your habits and it still hurts so much. Just remember she is waiting for you at the bridge and how very blessed you were to have her in all of your lives. Take care,
Anna and Max
