Today is the one year anniversary of us putting our 9 1/2 year old Abby down.

She had a mean streak and my father-in-law just moved in with us.

He bit may father-in-law two days earlier and my wife was afraid of what else she may do to him.

She was my dog. She followed me everywhere and was GREAT at agility. She was always the example for how it should be done, for our class.

I still sit at the top of the stairs waiting for her to wake up so we can take our morning short walk together.

I know she won't come, but I hope she is watching from over the Rainbow Bridge at me doing this.

I will miss her forever and think about her all the time.

We now have Calvin and he has replaced Abby on my morning walk, but as everyone knows, ever fur baby has his/her own personality and it isn't the same.

Please don't blame us, Abby. We do miss you. Sorry!!!! :cry

I remember reading of your dilema with Abby and your father-in-law. It is one of the hardest decisions we have to make as pet owners and it does take a long time to feel like we did our best for them. I am so sorry for your loss and so many of us know what you are going through. Thank you for sharing. These are steps that help you to heal.

Everyone - thank you for your thoughts.

Terry - I hope this makes it easier. She was a great dog 99.99% of the time. It was the 0.01% when she went into a rage and would lash out at everyone that sealed her fate. She came out of it immediately, but it was the time when she was in a rage we couldn't handle her.

I blame ourselves for not being tough on her when she was a puppy. If we had, she would still be here today.

I hoping she doesn't blame us from the Rainbow Bridge. She did have 9 1/2 wonderful years with us and should have had many more.
