I worked at our local Humane Society when Abby was dumped with 4 puppies, who were adopted quickly, but she was passed over again and again. One day I took her to my parents to see if they would foster her, but they had 2 dogs and said no. I took her back and put her in her kennel, locked up the facility, and went to my car where she stood waiting. Somehow she had gotten out of her kennel and was waiting. I took her home "for the night", wondering how she would react to our 12 cats, and she was mine for 15 wonderful years. People told me she chose me, and she did! She traveled everywhere with me and my girls: from Canada to Carmel! She camped, loved the dog park, and helped foster over 100 kittens. She went to work with me, comforted me when my parents died, accepted their dog into our home, and was the absolute most amazing creature I have been honored to know. When I got divorced she was the one who comforted me. We moved into our new home, and only 2 weeks later, she became very ill. The hardest thing I have ever done was take her to the vet that last day, but my daughter and I held her and told her how grateful we were to her for her love. Her ashes are on my dresser and not a day goes by that I don't think of her and the amazing gift she gave to me of unconditional love. I miss her every day, but know the greatest gift I can give her is to love another dog someday.
