My sweet angel Abbey

by Melinda

I had to say goodbye to my wonderful little angel Abbey on Dec. 27th 2016. She was 17 years old. She was like our other child. She was with us all the time. I feel like my heart is torn in two. It hurts so bad. She was always the best!! She was loving, loyal, and my friend. I keep looking down to see her precious face. I kissed her every day on the top of her nose. What a wonderful companion she was. I laid her to rest under a bush in our yard she liked to lay under in summer. She would always lay in same area in our yard. She slept with us in bed until about a year ago. She started getting arthritis in her hips. We put her a big bed near ours so she would be close , so she could stretch her legs if needed. These past two weeks she started not being able to stand very long . Her legs gave out after a few seconds of walking. I knew she was not happy. She would look up at me when I picked her up with such a sad look. I carried her around most of the last days. I knew what would be coming soon and I couldn't stand to think about it. I guess I was being selfish. I did not want to lose my sweet baby. It is killing knowing her little body is out there in a small little casket. I want to hold her and kiss her little face so bad. This is driving me crazy and it has only been two days. She was such a constant in our lives. I miss her so much!! I don't know what to do. She wasn't just a dog, she was my baby.

Mine was 17 too
by: Lisa

Hi, Sorry for your loss. I understand the feeling. Sam passed at 17. She also lost the ability to stand and walk. She gave up soon after that and passed at home. Blessings to you....
