Rob E Posted August 27, 2008 Report Share Posted August 27, 2008 Hi all. My first post here. I've been looking for a place to write something about my best friend where there was a chance someone would know what I was talking about. Last week I lost the best friend I've ever had, Abby. She was with me constantly except while I was working, and sometimes she even got to go to work with me Abby was truly a once in a lifetime dog. I've had dog friends my entire life, but we had a connection that I've never experienced before and doubt I will again. She adored me and I adored her. We were inseparable. I could take her anywhere off lead and never have to give a second thought to her wandering from my side even in spite of the fact that she loved people and was an attention hog. She was the only thing that got me through an incredibly rough time in my life.. I could always count on her to brighten my day She only had the chance to get close up to sheep one time in a controlled situation but you could tell the instinct was strong in her. Her surrogate sheep were my daughter and a JRT for most of her life. In her younger years her job was being an outstanding obed and agility dog. She lived for it. In later years after an injury, she slowed down to camping, hiking, and swimming. Swimming became her obsession, pool, river, lake, it didn't matter to her. She even had the chance to go white water rafting. The last thing I had to give to her was to not suffer from a tumor that had formed in her chest. We had an enjoyable last day of hiking and watching the water and posing for pictures..... here is a pic of my girls... Abby is the one in front.... Thanks for listening....
