    Default Abby's Song

    -abby-jpg
    I wrote this in memory of my sweet Abby who died at 10 months and 2 days of age. I was out on the patio playing my guitar while Abby and her sister, Lily, rolled around on the grass and chased about. After a while, I opened the back door and called them in. Lily ran in first. Abby walked in, and fell dead on the floor about two steps past the threshold. She hadn't been sick, and seemed vigorous and healthy right to the end. She didn't make a sound or twitch a muscle. She was just gone. I miss her every day.

    Abby

    When Abby was a baby
    She'd stand on my foot
    She'd crawl up in my lap
    If I'd read her a book
    She'd peek 'round a corner
    Giving me her silly look
    When Abby was a baby
    She'd stand on my foot

    Her tail was a wonder

    As it whirled round and round
    Had it been a propeller
    She'd have surely left the ground
    She'd leave a ball alone
    But took every disk she found
    Her tail was a wonder
    As it whirled round and round

    On her head was a thumbprint
    Reddish brown on pure white
    Her ears were long and soft
    And never stood upright
    Her tongue was always out
    And her eye's were always bright
    On her head was a thumbprint
    Reddish brown on pure white

    Then one day up in Heaven
    God ordered a report
    And when it was completed
    They were one Bulldog short
    An urgent call went out
    To find a Bulldog for the Lord
    Abby heard the call that day
    and went to her reward.

    She left us in a hurry
    No time to say goodbye
    No time to say "I love you girl"
    No time to sit and cry
    One moment she was with us
    The next she was with God
    I only hoped that when they'd meet
    She'd stand upon His feet.

    When Abby was a baby
    She'd stand on my foot
    She'd crawl up in my lap
    If I'd read her a book
    She'd peek 'round a corner
    Giving me her silly look
    When Abby was a baby
    She'd stand on my foot.

    Oh George! What a beautiful tribute to your Abby! As I wipe my tears I feel so blessed looking at Bogey and his same exact kissing spot! We never know how long our furry hearts will be with us so we need to treasure every day, the good and the bad, and this song is an awesome reminder of that!
    thankyou for sharing.
