Re: My Beloved Abbey
Thanks to eveyone...
Having know my dear Abbey only 8 short years, I have been thinking a lot of what she taught me. I hope at least one person won't make the same mistakes I did.
Whatever they want, give it to them... You could probably stand to lose a few pounds anyway :-)
Hug and kiss them each day.. If you're lucky you'll only get to do that a few thousand times...
Anytime that want to be scratched or hugged, stop what you're doing and give in.
Never be too stressed or too tired to take them for a long, long walk. There's nothing more important. You may not see it then, but you will eventually.
If you're going somewhere, take them with you. They're an integral part of your family. There's always room in the car.
And no matter what your dog does, don't be too harsh. They'll always forgive you, but when they're gone, you won't be able to forgive yourself.
I regretted each time I raised my voice or was cross with my dear Abbey, I regret it even more now.
