My heart just sank when I read the thread title. I'm so sorry you lost your little sweetiehead. But I'm relieved she is not suffering anymore. She's on the other side now where there is no pain or discomfort and I hope they have chicken nuggets for her. What am I saying? It's heaven, of course they'll have her favs. Hugs.

RIP beloved boy.
Im so sorry Twice, may she RIP - my deepest condolences.
Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees
Thank you everybody for all you have said. My head knows that I did what needed to be done. Her blood was so toxic that it couldn't carry oxygen to her organs anymore, she was literally suffocating. She was out of miracles. My heart is screaming at me that it was too soon.
When I read these posts, and even the ones from people who didn't even know her on Facebook (thank you for that Lisa (@desertskybulldogs) ) I realize how lucky I was to be the one gifted with the responsibility of taking care of her. That little girl was so special to have touched so many, I know that now. I mean, I knew it before but it never really sunk in until today.
I sat around all day yesterday thinking that I saw her everywhere and feeling sorry for myself. The guilt of having to make that decision was a rock in my throat. But today I think I understand that to keep doing that cheapens how she lived her life
I need to thank Abby's secret angels and their sponsorship. I don't know who you are but you need to know how important you were in her final weeks. I need you to know that it was because of YOU that I was able to keep taking care of her these past 2 months. We would have lost her a lot sooner had it not been for your generosity.
I promised her that I would love and take care of her for as long as she needed me to. I promised her that I would fight for her as long as she wanted me to. And I promised her that she would never live in pain. I think I've kept those promises to her and I have one final one to make. I promise that I will never forget the lessons I learned from her.
Someone asked me which was my favorite picture of her. I have a few
This one I think shows her innocence
I think this one shows her "abbitude" (she was pouting )
and even tho it's grainy I think this one shows how proud she was
Thank you all for loving her with me.

For me, her name was Abby

Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.
Thank you. I have read your profile and am humbled by your resilience and strength. So many challenges, so much love.
We must not forget how Abby's journey will help other pups facing similar circumstances. She was a miracle baby and an angel to so many WHILE she was here and the lessons learned long after her passing will help so many others. Twice, you have become an EXPERT in this area. You dug in and learned every morsel you possibly could about how outside influences could benefit Abby. She will ALWAYS be the epitome of a Miracle Pup and you, Twice, will always be an invaluable resource here at EBN. Sharing everything you've learned going forward is a tribute to Abby and to the special relationship you shared with her.
Her earthly journey may be over but her legacy lives on with you and everything you've learned, @Twice. We are ALL blessed for knowing her.
Having lost my own special angel, Miss Mabeline Fabulash, on Christmas Day 2009, I know the exquisite agony of facing a holiday marred by such sorrow. I will always be forever grateful that Abby held on for just one more day. Good girl, Abby. Good girl.

I'm so sorry to hear about Abby. You were such a great mamma! You two found each other for a reason..you and Abby both enriched each other's lives. You gave her your final act of love..letting her go when she needed to go and not wanting her to suffer. As difficult as it was..you showed her how much you loved her, right up until the end. You will see her at the bridge! Prayers to you!
I've always loved this version of the bridge
Oh god Bev. My heart is aching soooo much for you and Abby. Tears are flowing like crazy.
I know this may sound trite, but with time you will feel better. Little Abby's time on this earth may have been short, she had such a good mummy that cared for her like no other, I'm sure she knew how much you loved her.
Sending so much love to you Bev. Try to focus your energy on the beautiful times you had together.

I was finally able to catch up after being out of town all weekend! I am so, so very sorry for your loss!! I do not know you or abby but I have followed your journey and have been rooting for you the whole time! I admire you so much for all you have done for your sweet baby. She was very lucky that she had you to take care of her and help her fight. You gave her all those miracles and allowed to experience a life filled with love. They say that when it's "time to go" you just know it in your heart, and I truly believe that you made the right decision at the right time for Abby. It's better that she not suffer and fight anymore based on how you described her in her final hours. I hope you will not feel that there is more you could have done for her...you did MORE than most people would have for her. I hope she is at the Rainbow Bridge and watching over you and your family and playing with the other bullys and completely happy knowing that she was truly loved. That's all she needed and when her time was up, that's what she took with her. I pray for her and for you and your family that you may get through this difficult time and have peace of mind knowing that you made the right decision and that you are a wonderful person for all you have done for that puppy. You are inspiring to so many people here!
I'm so sorry for your loss, I'm no good with stuff like this. Our prayers go out to you and your family, she's in a better place now playing the way she loved too.
