I lost Abbe this morning and am going to miss her like crazy.
So is Berlin.


  1. I am so very sorry Lori. It is so terribly hard to say goodbye to such old and beloved friends. My thoughts are with you.

  2. I am sincerely sorry for the loss of your beautiful Abbe.

  3. Oh Lori, we share grief as we lost our darling Basil ( the fluffiest ginger boy cat ever ) on the 9th down here. There will be such a gap in your days, it will seem so hard to carry on as normal. Let the world stop for a while as you remember your loved Abbe with tears. Memories in your heart, where she will always have a loving place. A whole heap of love to you and Gary.

  4. I am so sorry Lori. She had a life full of love. Hugs B

  5. I am so very sorry for your loss of Abbe.

  6. I am a long time lurker but wanted to say how sorry I am to read about Abbe. Happy trails, sweet girl.

  7. OHHH...no. I was so sad to see this. I am so sorry.

  8. This is a sad day. So sorry for your loss. I have enjoyed her along with you.

  9. Oh, Lori I am so sorry to hear this. I wish I could give you a big hug. Abbe was such a sweetheart. Everyone is going to miss her.

    I’m sorry I didn’t see this until today. My internet has been out for a few days.

  10. For Your Beautiful Girl:

    Where to Bury a Horse
    Author Unknown

    If you bury him in this spot,
    the secret of which you must already have,
    he will come when you call-
    come to you over the far, dim pastures of death,
    And down the remembered paths to your side again
    And though you ride other living horses through life,
    They shall not shy at him or resent him coming,
    For he is yours and he belongs there.

    People may scoff at you,
    Who see no lightest blade of grass bent
    By his footfall,
    Who hear no nicker pitched too fine for insensitive ears
    People who may never really love a horse;
    smile at them, then
    For you shall know something that is hidden from them,
    and which is well worth knowing:

    The one place to bury a horse is in the heart of his mistress.

  11. Oh no, Lori, I was so sorry to read this. I saw something in your current post about Abbe so came down the posts. Hugs and thoughts to you. Jo-
