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.


  1. We're so sorry to hear that Abby has gone to the Bridge. She was a special girl and we know she will be greeted by all her friends from Blogville. We send warm hugs to all her family.

  2. Abby you will be surrounded by friends in Blogville heaven. You will be missed. Too many of our furry friends have left us this autumn. My heartfelt sympathies to you Brigid and your family.

  3. Very sorry to hear. You gave her a great second life, and she will be forever grateful to you and EJ for that.

    My heart is heavy for you as you process this departure... Abby, like Barkley before her, had the best of lives and that is thanks to you. Now Lorelei will carry that Love...

    Farewell Abby, hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. So sorry for your loss, but we know you did what was best for Abby. Soft woos and gentle hugs from all of us.

  6. This is such heartbreaking news today. I'm so very sorry. Try and take comfort in knowing that sweet
    Abby is now pain free and having fun at the Bridge. I know my Amber was also there waiting for her. Sending you lots of hugs...

  7. I'm so very sorry for the loss of your sweet girl. May the precious memories you shares over the years provide a measure of comfort. 💔 Tender digital ear rubs for Lorelei.

  8. I am so sorry. That is such terrible news. I know Abbie will be in your heart forever. Sending you love and prayers,

  9. The hardest decision anyone owned by a dog or cat ever has to make. May God give you peace and comfort as you celebrate her life in the midst of loss.

  10. Abby you were a beautiful Lab Lady...run free with your friends in endless days of sun and gentle breezes. If you see a kitty twerking...it is Angel Madi
    Hugs Cecilia

  11. These goodbyes are never easy. Heartfelt condolences from me and my fur babies: Maggie, Sam III, and Jack. God bless you. xx
