Likes: Digging holes, playing in mud, tearing up paper, and counter surfing.
Pet-Peeves: She does not like Charlie getting near me when she is around; she is scared of loud noises, storms, and the vacuum cleaner (she attacks it).
Favorite Toy: A toy she got for her birthday in 2010. It has no stuffing and has not been able to destroy it.
Favorite Food: Abbie is on a diet to keep her at her current weight. The doctor does not want her to get too fat again because of her arthritis. She loves Blue Dog Bakery Peanut Butter and Molasses Dog Treats.
Favorite Walk: She likes walking down our street. Lots of cats to bark at.
Best Tricks: Playing dead and counter surfing
Arrival Story: I got her from a friend when she was three months old.
Bio: I got Abbie from a friend when she was a puppy. I just found an old diary with the exact date that I got Abbie which is February 15, 2003. Since I was told Abbie was born about November 1st, she would be closer to 3 1/2 months old when I got her instead of 3 months old I always remembered. I named Abbie after a friend's black lab named Abby. I changed the spelling of my Abbie so the names were spelled differently from my friends. It made it easier to refer to the Abby/Abbie we were talking about. Shortly after I got Abbie, my friend moved to another state so the two could not be playmates anymore.
