    Default Thank you and farewell to Abby

    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

    They are never with us long enough but it sounds like the two of you shared many great times in her lifetime. Those memories will keep her in your heart.

    My condolences on your loss.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Very sorry to hear that. You have had a rough couple of months, losing the two special dogs. Feel good that those dogs enjoyed very full lives, and were just as fortunate to have you in their life as you were to have had theirs.

    After reading threads like this I know it will be hard when the day comes.

    Make them all flyers Abby.

    My condolences,
