I love that she "taught you what a dog brings to your life" and also that it is something you don't want to live without. I am always so saddened when such good homes decide to not get another dog because the pain of losing them is too great.

It is 2 yrs. also since we lost our Maggie. Prior to that I hadn't become quite cavelier about losing animals but through the process of taking in older, pre-owned dogs (pre-owned as in their souls and hearts had been given to their first love so our bond was different) I thought the process of greiving for me had mellowed and become more philosophical. Losing Maggie was a very humbling experience. She had a huge presence in my life and although she wasn't a cuddler gave me much comfort....and her sense of humor.....love that girl!

It is such a gift when the sadness starts to wane and the fun memories return.

So glad that your caregiving of Abby brought you into my life and to k9d, as you both helped make the lives of other diabetic "couples" better.

I still remember how shocked I was about Abby's passing. I can't believe it has been two years. I am glad that the pain of the memories has faded and you can now see the joy.

I am also so glad you have continued to post and help others with your insight. That is a tremendous legacy for Abby as well that your experience with her continues to help others.

Barb,
I am late to this but echo your sentiments. The pain has lessened but our hearts remain full and more acutely aware of all we take for granted. Each moment is a blessing...our health, our abilities, life can change in an instant.
Our pups teach us so much. Remembering Abby and Wishing you, Ron and Duncan and Happy New Year,
Patty

As I sit with Duncan at my feet, did I tell you that he so attached to me, I think of my Abby and my special relationship I had with her.

My first dog, really, that taught me so much...how to be a good pet care giver, how to know that you go that extra mile to give more time with those that are close, also to show that life can be short and live it to its fullest.

I miss my Abby girl, I love my Duncan in a different way...both have that special place in my heart.

It has only been 3 years, in some ways seem so long ago, and at times only yesterday.

Our wedding anniversary, that will always be a memory of our sweet Abby.
