Dogster just named Abby - " Dog of the Day". What a Huge Honor! Abby's tail hasn't stopped wagging since I told her. This just really lifts our spirits, especially since Abby's time is drawing to a close. It's now September and our vet, who is a really wonderful, compassionate lady, didn't think Abby would stay around past April. It's amazing what lots of love and tummy rubs can do. We still don't know really How to Tell When It's Time. We're just going day by day. Lots of people tell us that Abby will let us know with her eyes. Right now her eyes just say " More Food, Please".
I'm now half way through writing a book on knowing when it's time. It's going to be a "Chicken Soup" type book, and so if anyone has stories on how THEY knew it was time, and would like to share, please write me at
I'd love to include all the stories I can. Thanks for reading the diary, and thanks everyone for all the support.

Mommy knows. She went thru this with Ava, our kitty, for 8 months. Ava became ill again with the cancer. Mommy thought everyday that this would be the day. Ava finally gave her the LOOK, and she knew. You're heart will tell u. You'll know.
