   Leave a bone for Abigail

Abby, Peanut, Stinky Stinky Abigail

Quick Bio:

Sleeping and Eating

Being moved while she is under the covers, other dogs

Favorite Toy:
Toilet paper (unused)

Favorite Food:
EVERYTHING! Poop is not so bad either.

Favorite Walk:
Walk? Abby is afraid of her own shadow, so she tends to stay inside.

Arrival Story:
Get the violins out. We purchased Abby's sister, Ellie, and, unfortunately, left Abby behind. Abby was sold to a couple and named Gabby. She was then returned to the breeder due to a liver shunt, which would ultimately cause death. The operation to correct the liver shunt was very expensive. The breeder had no alternative than to put Gabby/Abby down. We came to the rescue and got Abby her operation, through the help of many loving people who donated money. Abby is doing fine, but will never be 100%. We are so happy to have both her and her sister.

Abby was so pathetic looking when we got her. She was extremely underweight and afraid of everyone. After the operation, she was able to gain weight and is now a happy puppy (but still afraid of her own shadow).

My Tail of Devotion for Abigail

Who would have known that we would end up with two (and eventually three) IG's. We got your sister and then ended up with you too. We have been through many nightmarish ordeals with you, but you have made it through. You were near death when we brought you home, but we immediately got you the surgery you needed for your liver shunt and now you are better. Every time I look at you I think about the fact that they were going to put you to sleep. You are such a loving puppy that I can't think of you not being in this world. Yes, you are afraid of everything, but that just makes you more endearing. We love you very much.

This is a special Tail of Devotion

I know I shouldn't be happy about this, but I'm so much more outgoing ever since my brother had his surgery and is now paralyzed. I know only bad dogs would admit to such things, but I feel so confident and alive. I'm doing things that only a Jack Russell would dream of doing. I play out in the open, right in front of my brother! I even sniff him. Mom and Dad will tell you that Trent has never hurt a fly. I think differently. He's over 100 pounds for dogs-sake. He could crush me like a grape. I'm FREE FREE FREE AT LAST!

I really don't have much to report. I don't get out much. I prefer to sleep all day long. Mom says that I am lucky that I stay so slender without excercising. Some day I plan on having a great adventure, but not any time soon!
