Abby & Aris April 2010

Dean walked outside tonight and found our Abby dog by the girls swing set. She had passed away sometime this afternoon. I feel horrible that I didn't realize sooner. I've been so preoccupied with all the yuckies that have been in our house I haven't taken the time to walk outside in the last few days. We took Abby in a few months after Dean & I got married. His ex wife couldn't handle her anymore. She had been rescued from an abusive home so she was never very social with the kids. She didn't like other dogs & tolerated Blu. Despite her standoffish nature we all loved her & she will be very missed. The girls are going to be devastated. I know they will want another dog but I'm afraid they will have to wait. I don't want any animals for a while. I can't stand the thought of loosing another animal. This really is bittersweet. She was very old & blind. She didn't seem to be in any pain but I'm pretty sure she is in a much happier place right now. We'll miss you Abby dog. Have fun hanging out with Blu. We love & miss you both.
