It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our dear sweet girl Abby. Abby passed Tuesday the 7th of May at twelve and a half years old. She was the sweetest of girls, always happy and trusting in whatever we asked of her. We think of her with such a sweet sorrow as we see her in all her children and grandchildren. This poem by Conrad Denis says more than we can express of our love and our loss.

 

Those of us who love animals are the privileged of this world. We know the beauty and the charm, the grace and simple integrity that make each minute in their presence a special time. They teach us how to love unqualifiedly and with pomp and pageantry that is unashamedly exhibited just by the look in their eyes and the shake of their tails. What other living being in the world can express affection without saying a word. And when they leave us, we feel for an instant the pain of centuries cutting deep into our souls....

They leave us a legacy; A perpetual reproof that life is worth living.
