   Leave a bone for Abby (RIP) 9/8/11

Abby girl, Abbarina, Abbarina you're so fina, punky brewster, little missy, abby damnit! Abster.

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog

the ups truck! She goes crazy every time shes sees one. Toys , toys, toys..I think she likes the dolphin the best.And of course licking Buddy's cat bowl clean every day....twice a day!

baths and tall men sometimes spook her. Squirrels drive her crazy! Bikes make her nutso too.

Favorite Toy:
dolphin(it talks) (had to throw away him : ( it quit working and was really dirty. She has SO many toys and spends time with almost all of them.

Favorite Food:
mine......and pizza! CAT FOOD!

Favorite Walk:
anywhere, everywhere but she especially loves running at my best friends home that has 3 acres of freedom and her best buddy, Jasper. (another beautiful Aussie) She doesn't even look back at me!

Best Tricks:
She's great at chasing tennis balls, not so great at bringing them back. She sits on command and gives me her paw but that's about all of her tricks.

Arrival Story:
I found Abby at the animal shelter when she was just 10 weeks old. She had been abused and needed extra love and attention. She looked like a painting her colors were so beautiful. I saw her over my shoulder sitting perfectly still and watching me. (they all were!) I wanted to take all of those dogs home that day!)

Abby was a great pal for my Sydney for two years. At first Syd resented Abby for being here and he was clearly pissed. Any pictures that I took, Sydney would look away and he loved having his picture taken. It took about two weeks for Sydney to love her and boy did he ever. Abby was very depressed when Sydney was gone and I didn't have time to get and raise another pup. A friend of mine resuced a cat in her neighborhood and told me about him Thanksgiving night almost 2 years ago. I'd never had a cat before but his story was quite moving so I told her to bring him on over. Buddy is one very special cat and they adore each other. I never thought I'd love a cat! (he does however think he is a dog) : ) Abby has a new brother! She loves him and can't wait to play with him. They are spending quality time together now getting to know each other. No rush, no worries. I can tell that they'll be famous friends in no time.

I've Been On Dogster Since:
March 13th 2004 More than 12 years!

I lost my Abby girl this week. She became very ill, very quickly. She is at peace now and sitting at the right hand of God.
I will miss my Abby for the rest of my life.
Thank you for being in my life the last 12 and a half years.
The sweetest, most giving dog. Thank you for loving me Abby.
Rest in peace.
