The sweetest girl in the entire world has traveled to the Rainbow Bridge.
Our darling former foster Abby was with us from September through January while she worked to kick her upper respiratory habit. During that time, she wormed her way into a place in my heart that few fosters are able to reach... so deep into my heart that I wasn't sure that I could ever let her go.
But let her go, I did... to the best family that I could have ever hoped to find for her. She gave them incredible amounts of love and joy, and worry as she began to get ill again. Her immune system met its match and our dear sweet Abby is gone.
While I can only honor her here today in photos, in the spring...
New rose bushes will be planted alongside Norman, Einstein, and Grizzly's.
There will be one for her baby sister Chanel too.
Abby's family is pretty heartbroken, as you can imagine. Her little brother Grizzly misses her like crazy. Any condolence messages you leave here will be passed along to them.
When things get tough around here, I turn to music. Ever since I learned the news about Abby, the song "Goodnight, My Angel" by Billy Joel has been running through the back of my mind. I'm paraphrasing the end of the song in tribute to her...
"Someday we'll all be gone,
But memories go on and on...
They never die
That's how you
