Abby made her final trip to the veterinarian this afternoon. She suffered a bad seizuire Sunday night and when the vet saw her, he found a large tumor under her tongue and determined the seizure was due to kidney/liver failure. We brought her home and last night the girls came over said their goodbyes. Abby and I made a trip to the pet goodie store this morning for a special cookie and a particular chewy bone she enjoys. We sat out under the big oak tree in the back yard - the weather was actually breezy and unusually comfortable today. I believe God gave us such perfect weather so Abby's last day could be spent sniffing the breeze and resting outside with us. She was ready to leave us, but of course our hearts are aching because there is now a gigantic empty spot in our family. I am grateful to have had one more day with my little old girlfriend. We will adjust to this change in our lives, but it will take some time. Abby will forever live in our hearts.
