Abby Lab Has Gone to the Bridge

"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."
-A.A. Milne, 'Winnie The Pooh.

'It is with heavy hearts we have to tell you all that Abby Lab went to the Bridge today, peacefully, and happy (after a Reese's peanut butter cup she spit out at the Vet because "I want the nasty DRY treats Mom gives me!").  She made her journey from our home with a very caring Vet and her sister Lorelei Lab got to say goodbye.

 She would have been 16 in February.  Considering she started her journey to us after being left heartworm positive at a high hill shelter when she was 8, that's pretty good.She brought a lot of joy to us but we are happy to know she is playing with Frankie Furter, Arty, Sarge, Ruby, Joey, and all of her friends from Blogville that left before she did.

The neighbors threw out a bunch of stale bread to feed the squirrels. Unfortunately, some of it went where Abby could snag it.

She can't eat grains. She's fine - a little chicken and yogurt and some time in the back yard did the trick (plus some open windows).  But I have two new terms with regards to the Labrador Retriever Digestive Track.

Monday Smiles

 I go back to work tomorrow after two weeks off (finishing up paperwork for Dad's estate - which is in trust for my late brother's kids - our decision when my brother was terminally ill).

I HAVE enjoyed sleeping in a bit, but there's not been a lot of time for blogging so for tonight, some smiles. . . .
