Naming Tribute For Abby


Our beloved Abby passed away on Monday, December 5th. She was such a treasure, one we were fortunate enough to find through GRRR in the summer of 2008, an all-too-short three years ago. Abby has been surrendered with her daughter, Samantha, so it’s comforting to think that there’s still at least one little “Abby” running around out there. How very blessed we were to know her. She made people smile, especially me. And she had that wonderful sense of people’s needs and fulfilled them. When a neighbor’s son was sad, she was there for him. And she would often visit an elderly friend, making her day. She greeted everyone and considered her day successful if she made a new friend. When I was too quiet, she made me play by dropping toys in my lap. She even told us when it was time to go to bed, casting her eyes repeatedly toward the stairs. We took beautiful walks but the car rides, of course, were the best, especially if she went to the bank for biscuits. She was both smart and wise, a powerful combination. And she could even do tricks, something we only discovered about a year ago! A happier dog I have never known. I couldn’t have had a better friend and companion and we have GRRR to thank for that, for getting us together after we had lost another Golden, Daisy. Abby was extraordinary, and how very badly she is missed. Thank you GRRR, for all you do for these wonderful and deserving dogs. Judy Koren
