Euthanasia is never an easy decision, and incredibly difficult when you are the one faced with it. On April 7, 2009 I was faced with realization that it was the most selfless act I could do for my old friend. HRCH Quiver Creek's Rowdy Abigail MH quietly went to sleep with my hands around her face, so that her last breaths would be filled with me.
We brought Abby home to Ten Bear Kennels to rest in good company with HRCH Jasmine Black as Night (500 point HRC dog with countless Master passes) and AFC HRCH Carronade's Lady Katherine MH (The youngest dog ever in HRC to have 500 points at 26 month of age, and many consecutive Master passes, and FT success).
I can look out the kitchen window of my home and see the resting place of the dog that changed and shaped my life from the time she entered it. Here's to you Abby, 500 point HRC dog and only one of 27 dogs that made it to the 3 rd series at the Grand in Mississippi. Abby, you were all heart. 3/6/1996-4/7/2009
