Abbie

by Meghann on August 2, 2009

You know those feelings you get deep down in your gut when you can feel something bad is going to happen? Well, I had one of those gnawing at my stomach all of yesterday. I was hoping I was just being paranoid and nothing would come of it, but at approximately 11:00pm last night one of my worst nightmares came true.

My little Abbie suddenly stopped breathing and all attempts to revive her failed. My best friend in the whole world passed away in a blink of an eye and I didn’t even have a chance to say good bye. She was just barely 2 years old and still a puppy in my eyes.

Please bare with me as I cope with the loss of my beloved pet. My eyes are sore from all the tears I have shed and the slightest thought of her sets me off all over again.

It does help to know that Abbie was a very loved, happy puppy who will be missed by so many. I will never forget her smile, waddle or ever present boatload of energy. I miss my Abbie already. Why did she have to be taken from me?….. ๐Ÿ™

1 Tracey August 2, 2009 at 2:36 am

I am so sorry about this! No words can help, but please know that you gave Abbie the most wonderful life imaginable and she will always be with you, watching over and protecting her best friend!

2 Stephanie August 2, 2009 at 2:40 am

Oh Meghan….I read often but never comment. I’m so sorry. I lost my dog in January and I know what you’re going through. Poor little Abbie. I loved reading about her. She knew you loved her, and you gave her a wonderful life. Take good care of yourself.

3 Sarah W. August 2, 2009 at 2:40 am

omg Meghann – I am really sorry to hear this ๐Ÿ™ I was just going to gchat with you but realized a comment would be better suited. She is on Rainbow Bridge now – take comfort in that, please. I’m really sorry you’re going through this – that must be the toughest thing in the world!!!

please please let us know if you figure out why this occured. ugh i really feel sad for you this is so upsetting!!

4 Marianne August 2, 2009 at 2:41 am

I’m so sorry to hear this ๐Ÿ™ Poor Abbie. I can’t imagine losing a pet so suddenly, when they are so young! You know that you loved her and gave her the best life she could ask for, and that she will always be with you. Whatever was wrong, at least she isn’t in any pain. I’m sure she’s smiling down from doggy heaven.

5 Amy August 2, 2009 at 2:43 am

Meghann I am so very sorry–I literally started to cry when I read your facebook status and immediately came to the blog for more info. My heart goes out to you and poor little Abbie. I love her! I really do. She’s always been my favorite blog-world pup.

<3 Amy

6 Marissa August 2, 2009 at 2:44 am

I am so, so, so very sorry ๐Ÿ™

7 Tay August 2, 2009 at 2:46 am

OMG I am so very very very sorry. I can’t even imagine. Stay strong.

8 Erin August 2, 2009 at 2:54 am

I am so, so sorry. I always read your blog and I don’t know if I have ever commented, but I have always been inspired by your commitment to health and fitness and your constant positivity. I am so sad for you and your loss.

9 Danielle August 2, 2009 at 3:00 am

Oh my gosh Meghann, I am so so sorry for your loss. I remember how devastating it was when my little Jason passed away so I understand the tough time you’re going through. Please take all the time you need and please remember that although she can no longer physically be by your side, Abbie will always be with you. ((( Bloggie Hug )))

10 Run Sarah August 2, 2009 at 3:00 am

I am so sorry – big hugs for you right now.

11 The Novice Berker August 2, 2009 at 3:22 am

Oh, Meghann. I’m so sorry! ๐Ÿ™ Abbie’s constant presence on the blog and in your posts always made it so clear how much you cared about her. Wishing you the best. <3

12 steph August 2, 2009 at 3:35 am

13 Spotty Prep August 2, 2009 at 3:48 am

Meghann, you have my sincere condolences. You’ll be in my thoughts over the next few days. I’m absolutely heartsick for you.

14 April August 2, 2009 at 4:29 am

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, it was so obvious how much you loved that little dog! My thoughts are with you.

15 Fattie Fatterton August 2, 2009 at 4:47 am

Meghann, I am so, so sorry. Abbie was so lucky to have you as her pet parent.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

16 rediscoveringlauren August 2, 2009 at 5:22 am

Im so, so sorry meghan. Anyone that read your blog could tell how much abbie meant to you and how much of an amazing owner you were to her. My thoughts are with you during this hard time.

17 Amy August 2, 2009 at 5:23 am

I have a huge lump in my throat after reading this – i am a huge animal lover so i feel for you so much at this time. Abbie was gorgeous and lucky to have such loving owners, some animals live for years and do not have half the love that Abbie did. I am thinking of you and sending you a virtual hug from the UK – take care Meghann xxx

18 Kiki (Run Kiki Run) August 2, 2009 at 5:38 am

my god i cant believe this. im so sorry, i cant only imagine how you must be feeling. you gave abbie 2 amazing and loved years, stay strong meghann.

19 Quinn August 2, 2009 at 5:59 am

Oh Meghann. I am sure there are no words I can say to ease your hurt and pain, but please know that I’m thinking of you. If there is anything you need you just have to ask. Sending you love girl.

20 Kristin August 2, 2009 at 6:04 am

Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear. Our pets are like family members so I know this is hard. Sending good thoughts your way…

21 tami August 2, 2009 at 6:13 am

I am so sorry. pets are so dear to us and those that have never experienced a loss of a pet might not understand that you need to grieve for Abbie as if she was a person (as she was to you and to all of us) i hope that some of the happy memories you have with her can help you through these difficult days.

22 Jenn August 2, 2009 at 6:14 am

I am so so sorry. I recently lost my beloved dog and I know how overwhelmingly awful it is. You are in my thoughts. Remember that you gave her so much love and a wonderful, happy life. Be well.

23 Matt August 2, 2009 at 6:15 am

I am so sorry for your loss. You will be in my prayers!

24 Susan August 2, 2009 at 6:40 am

So, so sorry Meghann. Dealing with the death of a pet is HARD. But from what I’ve seen on your blog, she had a wonderful doggie life. She didn’t miss out on a thing ๐Ÿ˜‰

25 alex August 2, 2009 at 6:45 am

My heart broke for you this morning- Abbie had the best owner who made her short life beautiful, complete, and full of love.

26 KatieF August 2, 2009 at 6:45 am

Meghann, I am so so so sorry to hear about Abbie. You gave her a fantastic life during the short time she was here. I hope you can take some comfort in that.

27 Meghan August 2, 2009 at 6:49 am

My beloved dog died 4 years ago after spending 13 years with her. I still miss her to this day. I am so sorry.

28 Andrea [bella eats] August 2, 2009 at 7:06 am

Oh Meghann…I am so devastated for you. The loss of a pet is so incredibly difficult. Know that I am thinking of you…

29 Adi (oatonomy.com) August 2, 2009 at 7:13 am

I am devestated for you… losing a dog is so, so hard. I mean it when I’m saying I’ll be praying for you.

30 Lindsay Lu August 2, 2009 at 7:17 am

Meghann I’m so sorry. You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers today.

31 katie s August 2, 2009 at 7:23 am

Meghann, I know just how difficult this is, I lost my lab last summer and I am STILL missing her everyday. I feel for you and my thoughts are with you right now. Abbie WAS loved by you, your friends and family, and this blog! It is just devastating that she had to be taken from you so young. Take care of yourself, this cannot be easy!

32 Sarah August 2, 2009 at 7:26 am

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I’ve never left a comment before, but I love dogs and always enjoyed reading about Abby on your blog. My dog is my life, so I know you are devastated. Please know that we are all thinking of you.

33 Rosey Rebecca August 2, 2009 at 7:29 am

I’m so sorry. My dog died about a year and a half ago and I sill think about her everyday. Be strong though, you’ll get through this! I promise. Just take off all the time you need. Things will be ok.

34 sarah (ghost world) August 2, 2009 at 7:29 am

i am so sorry! it was obvious from the way you wrote about her that you were an absolutely amazing caregiver and friend to abbie — you gave her the best life she could have. i will be thinking of you!

35 jenna August 2, 2009 at 7:35 am

oh no, Meghann!!!!!!!! I am so so so sorry….I know nothing I can say will help but my heart goes out to you ๐Ÿ™

Dogs DO go to doggie heaven..I can promise you that! I’m so sorry

36 Kath August 2, 2009 at 7:40 am

Meghann,

I am heartbroken for you. Take your time to heal.

xoxo
Love,
K

37 Rachel August 2, 2009 at 7:42 am

I’ve never commented before but I’m always reading and wanted to pass along how incredibly sorry I am for your loss. The shock of it makes it seem so much more unfair.

38 Erica August 2, 2009 at 7:49 am

oh Meghann…my heart is with you every step of the way. I am so very sorry for your loss.

39 Mica August 2, 2009 at 7:51 am

I am so sorry for your loss, Meghann! I’m not sure what to say that is helpful, but I am definitely thinking about you.

40 Gina August 2, 2009 at 7:56 am

Oh Meghann, I am so sorry! You and Abbie will be in my thoughts, dogs do go to heaven! You gave Abbie two amazing years, and I’m sure she misses you too.

41 Erin August 2, 2009 at 7:58 am

I am so sorry. I lost my dog last year and it’s a loss like no other. So many pets are in unfortunate situations and your dog was loved and taken care of. I’m thinking about you and know how you feel.

42 Mara @ What's For Dinner? August 2, 2009 at 7:58 am

I’m so sorry Meghann… losing a pet is one of the hardest things ever. My thoughts and hugest hugs to you.

43 Christie @ Quit Your Diet August 2, 2009 at 7:58 am

I’m sorry for your loss.

44 Ada August 2, 2009 at 7:59 am

I am so sorry Meghann, I practically cried when I read this post. Losing a dog is no different than losing any other family member and I know it must be extremely difficult for you. Just remember that Abby was lucky to be very loved and cherished by you.

45 Aimee August 2, 2009 at 8:00 am

This made me cry, I’m so sorry for you Meghann. My mom lost a dog both last summer and this summer that I was very close to, and it really is so hard. But, I can’t imagine to lose a pup so young and so sudden.

46 Liz @ intheskinny August 2, 2009 at 8:05 am

Oh I’m sorry Meghann! I don’t know what I would have done. I hope you get some comfort today

47 Juicy Jessy August 2, 2009 at 8:06 am

oooh sweety that is so sad!!! big hug!!

48 Julie August 2, 2009 at 8:12 am

Oh my God, Meghann. I’m so so sorry. Abby was your little best friend. She lived such a good life and was lucky to have you. You are in my thoughts and I’m sending a huge hug your way.

49 tiponz August 2, 2009 at 8:14 am

50 Lexie August 2, 2009 at 8:21 am

Meghann, I am so sorry to hear about your Abbie! My eyes are tearing up just reading that. I can relate when you say she is your best friend and for her to be gone so young. I will be thinking of you!

51 ksgoodeats August 2, 2009 at 8:26 am

Megann, I am deeply, deeply saddened to hear about your loss. As a pet parent myself, my heart goes out to you immensely. Remember that Abbie will always be with you in your memories. Even though she’s gone, she’s not far. Big hugs from me to you!

Oh Meghann. My heart is breaking for you. I wish she was still here! I am so so sorry for your loss. Abbie was a wonderful little sweetheart and you were the best mom to her.

55 Leianna August 2, 2009 at 8:28 am

I just lost 2 pets and toatally understand that this is extremely hard, especially when you get so close to them. Prayers are with you:)

56 Kristine August 2, 2009 at 8:29 am

60 katiek August 2, 2009 at 8:35 am

As a reader whos followed you for about 10 months I know how much you loved your dog. Abbie was your best friend. There’s nothing i can say or do except say that I’m so sorry for your lost….my thoughts are with you.

61 melissa August 2, 2009 at 8:38 am

My thoughts are with you Meghann. Sadly, I also lost my dog this week. However, she was 15, and it was her time. I can’t imagine how such a sudden incident would feel. The blog certainly shows what an amazing mother you were to abbie. best wishes

62 Kara August 2, 2009 at 8:41 am

I read your blog multiple times a day, but hardly ever comment. I love my dog as much as you love Abbie, and I can’t imagine the pain you’re in right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

63 jentrinque August 2, 2009 at 8:44 am

Meghann, I’m so, so sorry to hear about Abbie. I believe animals have souls, go someplace better after this life, and maybe even come to us in different forms to visit. We can learn many lessons from our pets and I really, really hope you’re feeling okay today. I am so sorry for your loss.

64 snackpak August 2, 2009 at 8:48 am

I’m so so sorry, Meghann. As a dog lover, my heart breaks for you, and I can’t believe this has happened to such a sweet animal! I’ve read your blog for a while though and can safely declare that Abbie was not only a cutie of a dog, but one who was loved more than most dogs, and I know she definitely knew it.

65 Kristen August 2, 2009 at 8:50 am

Meghann, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. We all care so much about you and support you every step of the way. Abbie was such a precious pup, just remember all of the happy times with her. My prayers are out to you and your family. Best wishes!

66 greenbean August 2, 2009 at 8:53 am

I’m so sorry for your loss. You gave Abbie a home and the best life. You were as special to her as she was to you. Hang in there Meghann. You are in my prayers.

67 Kristin August 2, 2009 at 8:54 am

Omg. I’m so sorry. It is so hard to lose a pet. They are the best companions and like children. My thoughts are with you.

68 Anne P August 2, 2009 at 8:59 am

Oh Meghann… I am so sorry to read this ๐Ÿ™ Keep your head up and know that she loved you and always will. xoxoxo

69 Holly August 2, 2009 at 9:00 am

Meghann…I am so, so sorry for your loss. Just by reading your blog we could all tell how deeply you cared for Abbie and what a wonderful mommy you were to her. My prayers are with you.

77 bridget August 2, 2009 at 9:14 am

I can’t even imagine what you are going through. You are so strong and have so much support I know the sun will shine again ๐Ÿ™‚

78 Lisa August 2, 2009 at 9:15 am

I’m so sorry to hear about this loss, Meghann. I’m a faithful reader of your blog and it pains me to read what you’re going through right now. Losing a pet is just like losing a member of your family. Here’s a poem that will help you remember Abbie and know she’s in a safe place, watching over you:

Rainbow Bridge Poem

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

79 Caitlin August 2, 2009 at 9:29 am

this was lovely.

80 Katie August 2, 2009 at 9:16 am

Meghann–I’m so sorry about Abbie. My dogs are my life and I can’t imagine losing them. She will ALWAYS be with you!

81 Diana (Soap & Chocolate) August 2, 2009 at 9:19 am

Oh no, Meghann, I’m so sorry. What a horrible shock. Take all the time you need to grieve your loss, but know that you have tons of support in real AND internet life!

82 Helena August 2, 2009 at 9:20 am

Aw, I’m so sorry. ๐Ÿ™ I loved reading about her, she definitely did seem very well loved. Sending good vibes your way to help you get through this.

83 Andrea (Off Her Cork) August 2, 2009 at 9:23 am

Oh god Meghann I am so so sorry. Dang it. Losing a pet is one of the hardest things ever. Goodness I am so sad and sorry that you are going through this right now. I was going to post the Rainbow Bridge poem too but I see Lisa did already! I’m so sorry Meghann.

84 Madelin August 2, 2009 at 9:23 am

So sorry Meghann, that is terrible :(. I can’t even imagine what you are going through.

85 redheadyellowdog August 2, 2009 at 9:24 am

I am so incredibley sorry for your loss, Meghann. Losing a pet is such a hard tragedy to face. My thoughts will be with you.

86 Talia August 2, 2009 at 9:25 am

I am so so sorry for your loss. Maggie will always be in your heart as a young, active loving puppy to cherish forever….

87 Allison August 2, 2009 at 9:26 am

I’m so sorry! I lost my dog (my first pet) this past winter. It was one of the hardest things I have had to go through. Remember that little Abbie is in doggy-heaven, romping around, and is always looking down on you. Hang in there!

88 Megan Mazza August 2, 2009 at 9:27 am

Meghann,
I am so sorry for your loss. Being an animal lover myself and having lost my dog I understand it is the hardest thing in he world. Abbie was just a great dog to you and she truly was loved and taken care of. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

89 Kelsey August 2, 2009 at 9:27 am

i am so unbelievably sorry to hear that your dear friend passed away. you are in my thoughts!

90 Deirdre August 2, 2009 at 9:28 am

I’m so sorry Meghann to hear about Abbie. From all the pictures I saw of her, it looked like you gave her a fabulous life and she was a truly happy dog.

91 carolinebee August 2, 2009 at 9:28 am

Meghann i’m so sorry to hear this. It was so obvious to all of us how dear she was to you and I”m so sorry she was taken from you like that.

92 solomomo August 2, 2009 at 9:29 am

Meghann, I am so sorry to hear about Abbie. From what I read and the pictures I saw she was a beautiful dog who was so, so loved. I’m so sorry you lost your best friend and you are in my thoughts.

93 Simone August 2, 2009 at 9:29 am

Oh Meghann, I am so so sorry for your loss. I know how sad it is to lose a pet, especially when it is not expected. Take all the time you need and remember that it was not your fault and there was nothing you could have done differently. I am a huge believer in everything happening for a reason, and while you don’t know why she past away just yet, eventually you WILL see the big picture and everything will be okay. I wish I could reach through my computer screen and give you the biggest of hugs. We will all miss the pics of Abbie and I know this is hard, but you will persevere (cuz that’s what you, Meghann, do!!)

94 carolynB~ August 2, 2009 at 9:29 am

No words…

Take care and the time you need to grieve your little buddy. We will all miss her.

95 chandra August 2, 2009 at 9:32 am

Once again hun, I’m so sorry. ๐Ÿ™ I know how this situation feels and I know it is hard. My thoughts are with you, hang in there. ?

96 Stacey August 2, 2009 at 9:32 am

๐Ÿ™ Oh my gah Meghann, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your pet. They are family and I can’t imagine how you feel right now….we are all here for you!!

97 Amy C. August 2, 2009 at 9:33 am

Oh Meghann, I am so so sorry. My thoughts are with you. ๐Ÿ™

98 gina g August 2, 2009 at 9:34 am

I’m so so sorry meghann!! My prayers are with you!

99 Miss Gee@stacietotheg.com August 2, 2009 at 9:35 am

Meghann,
I’ve been following your blog for about a month, but I rarely comment. I lost my shih tzu last summer after a tragic accident, and believe you me I know how what a difficult time this is. Try to takle comfort in knowing that Abbie is in heaven now and having a ball. I know it hurts, but it does get easier as the days go by. I miss my dog (Patron) everyday, but I kow he is in a far better place.

Take care,
Miss Gee

100 Holly August 2, 2009 at 9:38 am

Oh my god, Meghann. Why do things like this happen, with no reason? It’s like losing a child. Take time to grieve. I am so sorry you lost her, my thoughts are with you.

101 Amelia August 2, 2009 at 9:38 am

So sorry to hear about Abbie. She was such an adorable dog and I know she’ll be missed. I know how hard it is to lose a pet. We’ll all be thinking about you. Hang in there!

102 Krista August 2, 2009 at 9:40 am

I am so, so sorry. What a dreadful thing to have happened to you. Your love for Abbie shone through in every post you included her in. Let her be the wind at your back and the sun on your lips…….

103 Ashley August 2, 2009 at 9:42 am

I’m so sorry, Meghann. The loss of a pet is always tragic — I can’t imagine it being so sudden. I loved Abbie’s appearances in your posts.

104 Kaye August 2, 2009 at 9:44 am

I saw your update on Twitter and immediately came to the blog for more info, thinking it had to be a mistake. I am so incredibly sorry this happened to you. No one deserves to have such a horrible thing happen. I know that Abbie was so loved and had a wonderful life. You will be in my thoughts…

105 andrea. August 2, 2009 at 9:44 am

Aw Meghann, that’s awful! I’m so sorry for your loss. It was obvious to all of us how much she loved you, and how much you loved her right back. She will be missed by all of us!

106 Danielle August 2, 2009 at 9:47 am

I am so sorry for your loss. I can tell that Abbie was very loved. Stay strong,

107 Melissa August 2, 2009 at 9:48 am

Meghann – I am so so so sorry for your loss……it brought tears to my eyes and I can only imagine what you are going through right now! Some people don’t understand how a pet (especially a dog like that) is JUST like a kid and it’s the hardest thing in the world to lose a pet……
Just know that she is in doggie heaven chasing birdies and squirrels! That’s what my parents always told me when we lost a family pet…Again, I’m SO sorry for your loss ๐Ÿ™

108 runnerskitchen August 2, 2009 at 9:52 am

I’m so sorry ๐Ÿ™ I started crying a little bit when I read this post. I love animals and I know what an important part they can play in one’s life. I know it’s not any consolation, but I’m sure she knows you loved her very much. You were always looking out for Abbie – like on Friday when you stayed in to watch TV and hang out with her. You were a great dog-mom!

Oh Meghann I am so sorry to hear about Abbie. What a shocking loss. ๐Ÿ™ Abbie seemed like such a sweet, loveable pup. I’m so sorry she was only with you for such a short time.

118 crossbordercravings August 2, 2009 at 10:03 am

Meghann

Any and all who read your blog could see that you were an excellent mommy to Abbie and I am confident Abbie knew she was a loved and cherished pet. Lots of hugs and prayers.

121 Baylee August 2, 2009 at 10:05 am

Megann- I am so, very, very sorry for you loss ๐Ÿ™ Its quite sad to say this, but I often have a harder time loosing my pets than I do people in my life. My prayers and thoughts will be with you <3

122 Sara August 2, 2009 at 10:06 am

Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry about your loss! Lossing a pet is so terrible. I still get teary eyed thinking of our dog that passed 3 years ago! Oh, I’m so sorry.

123 Laura August 2, 2009 at 10:06 am

I know losing a pet is one of the worst things ever. I am so sorry to hear this happened, especially since Abbie was still a baby. You’re in my thoughts, Meghann.

124 stacey August 2, 2009 at 10:08 am

Meghann,

I am so, so sorry to hear about Abbie. From what I can see on your blog, she had a great life during the time that she spent with you. I will keep you and Abbie in my thoughts.

125 Deva August 2, 2009 at 10:09 am

Meghann, I am so so sorry to hear about your loss.

126 Jenny August 2, 2009 at 10:10 am

Meghann – I lost my dog a couple years ago when he got hit by a car. He was also only two years old. I was devastated and still miss him, but I want to let you know that you will find a new best friend soon. There are so many other dogs out there calling your name that need homes. Keep your spirits up. You’ll get through this. Here’s a big hug!

127 Quisha August 2, 2009 at 10:10 am

meghann, our prayers are with you. abbie is still with you in spirit. such a precious and beautiful baby.

128 Samantha August 2, 2009 at 10:12 am

I’m so sorry for your loss. Some people will try to tell you that it’s just an animal, but for those of us who love deeply and are pet parents, it’s like losing a child. I lost my beloved cat on Christmas day last year and it was the hardest thing I have gone through.

Take time to heal, and remember, you gave her a wonderful life full of love and happiness.

129 BethT August 2, 2009 at 10:13 am

Meghann, I am so shocked and sad. I so loved seeing Abbie on the blog. As a proud terrier mom myself, I know how wonderful they are and how nothing can describe the love we have for them. I’m thinking of you. Take care of yourself.

130 Kristie August 2, 2009 at 10:13 am

Aw Meghann… poor Abbie. I’m SO sorry to hear this. Keep your head up!

131 jessica August 2, 2009 at 10:15 am

Meghann – I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

132 Nina August 2, 2009 at 10:15 am

I am soo sorry for your loss! So sudden and way too soon. Like all of your readers, I always enjoyed seeing posts with little Abbie girl. Its very obvious from the blog how much you love her, and my heart hurts for you.

133 Julia August 2, 2009 at 10:17 am

I’m so sorry ๐Ÿ™ Abbie had a great life and knows you love her very much!

134 Mari August 2, 2009 at 10:17 am

As I write this, tears are streaming down my face…I am so very sorry for your loss…I can’t imagine the pain you are going through…I am really sorry and you are in my prayers

135 Justy2003 August 2, 2009 at 10:18 am

Meghann, I’m so sorry to hear about Abbie ๐Ÿ™ I literally gasped when I saw the news…so sad, unexpected, and heartbreaking. Take the time you need to cope with this. You’re in my thoughts.

136 TorontoGirloutWest August 2, 2009 at 10:18 am

Oh Meghann ๐Ÿ™

I have to admit I did a double take when I saw this post. I couldn’t believe Abbie was gone.

One thing is clear – no dog was ever loved more than your Abbie. And that is a gift you gave her.

Lots of hugs!!!

Karen

137 Still Life in South America August 2, 2009 at 10:21 am

I’m absolutely stunned. I am so, so sorry about your loss.

138 Serena August 2, 2009 at 10:22 am

Meghann, this is such sad news. Abbie was a big part of the blog and like everyone else, I’m so sorry you have to go through this. I’m so shocked – she was so young.

139 lora August 2, 2009 at 10:23 am

So sorry for your loss… my heart goes out to you.

141 Anna Webb August 2, 2009 at 10:33 am

I almost feel like I know you and Abbie a little bit b.c of the blog. When I read what happened, I cried for you. It was apparant that Abbie was loved so much. Even though she’s gone, smile in the fact that you gave her the best life possible and she left this world happy.

I’m so sorry for your loss, I’ll be thinking of you.

142 Alyssa August 2, 2009 at 10:35 am

I’m ssssooooo sorry to hear about your loss ๐Ÿ™ Our family had to put our dog down just over a month ago. We’re all praying for you!

143 Jess August 2, 2009 at 10:35 am

Hi Meghann. I am a frequent reader of your blog but I don’t always comment. I’m so sorry for your loss. You gave Abbie a wonderful life. Take some time to yourself — we all understand. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

144 Erin August 2, 2009 at 10:36 am

Meghann, I am so sorry for you loss. From reading your blog i know just how much you loved Abbie. I will keep you in my prayers that your heart is able to heal.

145 Michele August 2, 2009 at 10:41 am

I’m so sorry to read about Abbie. I know how difficult it is to lose fur babies. When my cat died, a friend pointed me to a poem called Rainbow’s Bridge. It’s where all the little animals go when they die to wait for us. Here is a link to it — I hope you’ll find it comforting. http://rainbowsbridge.com/Poem.htm

146 Katie August 2, 2009 at 10:45 am

Meghann,
I have loved your blog for quite some time and always save it for last in my Google reader… as a a little treat. I’ve enjoyed the posts featuring Abbie so so much… I can’t even begin to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. My heart hurts for you and as soon as I saw your post I felt ill. To lose a pet (A BEST FRIEND) is heartbreaking and indescribable. I hope you are able to find peace and know that she is always with you.

147 Jordon August 2, 2009 at 10:48 am

Meghann I am so sorry for your loss, I know it is so difficult to lose a pet. I lost both of my dogs last year and it was awful. Just know how happy you made Abbie’s life, and how much she loved you. I’ve never commented on your blog before, but I’ve been a reader forever and really felt like I had to say something. I’ll be thinking of you, and just know that Abbie is ok and she will always be with you.

148 lilveggiepatch August 2, 2009 at 10:50 am

I’m so sorry, Meghann. You showed Abbie so much love on the blog that I know can’t even compare to how close you were in the real world. I’m thinking of you.

149 Diana August 2, 2009 at 10:58 am

I’m so very sorry for your sudden loss! Losing a best friend like that is more than hard. I’ll definitely keep you in my thoughts. *hugs*

150 tracy August 2, 2009 at 11:02 am

OMG i am so sorry. I lost my guinea pig 3 years ago and i still cry when i think about her. So I can only imagine what you are going through. I’m so sorry. just know that you are all teh way in florida, and i’m here in cali- here is a hug from me. HUG.

151 inmytummy August 2, 2009 at 11:03 am

Oh no, Meghann. I’m so sorry. Losing a pet is awful and yours is gone way too soon. I’ll be thinking of you.

152 Kristy August 2, 2009 at 11:04 am

Meghann-
I’m so sorry to hear this. I have been reading your blog for several weeks, but have never commented. I always enjoyed seeing your pics of Abbie b/c she reminds me of my poochies. I know that nothing anyone says can make the hurt go away, but just know that there are a lot of people out there (many you’ve never even met) who are thinking of you and Abbie today.

153 thedallasceliac August 2, 2009 at 11:04 am

Meghann,

I am so, so sorry for your loss. We lost our baby – our cat Mereike – in April. It is absolutely awful, but I promise it WILL get better.

Abbie was so very lucky to have you and I’m sure that the Friday night you two spent together was one of the last things she thought about.

Hugs,
Elizabeth

154 Maria August 2, 2009 at 11:05 am

I am so so sorry, Meghann!!!

155 leslie August 2, 2009 at 11:08 am

156 Meg August 2, 2009 at 11:09 am

Meghann,
I have been reading for a long time but have never posted. As a dog owner, I know how treasured animals can be, and it was evident that Abbie was like a child to you. Take the time to grieve, and know that she is in doggy heaven. Sorry for your loss.

157 courtney August 2, 2009 at 11:12 am

Meghann,

My thoughts go out to you. Stay strong.

158 loveprevails August 2, 2009 at 11:13 am

Meghann, I cannot even begin to tell you how terrible sorry I am . I know Abby was your everything and I have been in your shoes (and have that terrible feeling about my 15yr ‘puppy’ now). If there is anything at all I can do please let me know. Of course I am thinking about you.
xoxo

159 biz319 August 2, 2009 at 11:15 am

161 Heather August 2, 2009 at 11:16 am

I am so sorry to hear about Abbie, losing a pet is one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through. Stay strong and try to remember all the good times the two of you had together.

162 Megan August 2, 2009 at 11:20 am

Meghann, I am so sorry to hear about Abbie. No words can describe it. We know how much you loved her. I lost my beloved dog almost 3 months ago and it still hurts really badly, but it does get better. Take your time to heal.
Thinking of you.

163 Heather August 2, 2009 at 11:22 am

I am so so sorry to hear about Abbie! My heartfelt prayers are with you.

164 kirsten August 2, 2009 at 11:24 am

I am so sorry Meghann ๐Ÿ™ I hope you are doing okay.

165 Meredith August 2, 2009 at 11:24 am

So sorry to hear about your pup Meghann. I lost my beloved boxer a year ago and I still miss him today.

Know that they are all together in doggie heaven wreaking havoc on squirrels and birds ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care, I’ll be thinking of you!

166 alaskanarcticexpeditions August 2, 2009 at 11:25 am

I’m so sorry about Abbie. There’s nothing more difficult than losing a special friend. Our bonds with pets are amazing and the love is indescribable. It hurts so bad when they go. May you find comfort in all the good memories.

167 Rebecca August 2, 2009 at 11:28 am

Meghann:

I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Knowing you, I’m sure you’ll be able to get through this time.

168 Lauren August 2, 2009 at 11:30 am

Meghann, I am so so sorry about your loss. Having lost 3 dogs in years past, I know that words cannot console you when you lose your best furry friend, so I’ll just send my love and sympathy. Take Care.

169 Teresa Hofmannn August 2, 2009 at 11:35 am

I know words can not express your sadness right now, but I am so sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you.
((hugs)) Teresa

170 helen August 2, 2009 at 11:38 am

Meghann-

I read often but have never commented. I’m truely sorry for your loss. I understand how devastating a loss of a pet can be, they are family in the truest sense of the word. Take comfort that you gave Abbie the greatest life possible and were the bext mommy she could have asked for. I’m so sorry

171 papayafish August 2, 2009 at 11:38 am

Oh my goodness, you poor thing! I’m so so sorry about your pup ๐Ÿ™

172 Allison August 2, 2009 at 11:39 am

oh meghann! i’m absolutely bawling right now. i am so so so so so so so so so so sorry. I know how very much you loved Abbie – it was very apparent! I loved Abbie just through the pictures and words you post about her! I want to fly down to Florida right now just to give you hug. You are in my thoughts and prayers – PLEASE let me know if there is anything I can do!

173 katie August 2, 2009 at 11:42 am

Your post made me cry. It is so nice you spent Friday night at home with her so you can both hold onto that good memory. The best a dog can ask for is a loving, active parent to hug them and take them out to play, and you fit that description perfectly and gave her so much happiness, as she gave you. This is evident just from reading your blog, so I’m sure your love for each other was even more obvious in real life! I’m so so sorry for your loss. From- a reader who never commented before, but who really admires you and your strength! Katie

174 Lori August 2, 2009 at 11:42 am

I am so sorry for your terrible loss. People without dogs (animals) probably can’t understand how devastating it really is. The only comfort I was able to find when my dog passed away was knowing how much he was loved and what a great life he had. I hope you are also able to find some comfort knowing what a wonderful life you had provided for Abbie.
Take care of youself.

175 Jessica August 2, 2009 at 11:42 am

since your little pup was obviously destined for a shorter life than most dogs, im so glad she had such a loving devoted owner to make the best of the short time.

Much love and prayers.

176 Amy August 2, 2009 at 11:44 am

How fortunate little Abbie was to have as loving a mama as you during her two short (and too short) years on earth – thinking of you in this difficult time.

177 Emily August 2, 2009 at 11:45 am

Ohmigoodness! I am so sorry for you loss. I know words can’t make things better, but at least she didn’t suffer and at least you got that special one-on-one time with her Friday night! You were an amazing mom to her (from what I can tell on the blog anyway!)! Keep your head up! She’s in a great place now, pup heaven!

178 erinbee August 2, 2009 at 11:47 am

i wish there were words
to make this any easier
for you. but really there
arent. but just know that
i am thinking of your and
that we will all miss her.

179 Alex August 2, 2009 at 11:51 am

I have never commented on any of your posts before, and I didn’t want to start on such a sad topic, but O WELL; I had to comment now because I am so sorry to hear about your puppy. It was always fun to read about what she was doing in your blogs and see the funny pics of her sometimes:) At least you know she’s in doggy heaven(I just really hope there aren’t any cats there because then she’d be chasing them for a very long time;)

180 Bec August 2, 2009 at 11:51 am

I am soo sorry Meghan I know how hard it is to lose a dog, especially one so sweet as your little Abby.

181 Jenna August 2, 2009 at 11:52 am

aww Meghann I am so sorry to hear this sad news. I know how much Abbie meant to you! Hang in there girl. Take a day off from blogging, we all will understand!

http://jennaelise.blogspot.com/

182 Island Girl Eats August 2, 2009 at 11:56 am

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my cat in November of last year. It was awful. I take comfort in the thought that he is no longer in pain or sick.

I know that this doesn’t mean much now, but time will help to ease your pain.

Take care of yourself.

183 Cati August 2, 2009 at 11:58 am

Meghann,

My heart aches for you and I feel your pain. Abbie is in a better place now and she lived a wonderful life. It is hard to find the words to say. Stay strong and time will heal but never forget.

184 Danielle August 2, 2009 at 11:58 am

I’m so sorry to hear this sad news. I’ll be thinking of you over the next few days. Do you know what happened to her?

Hugs!

185 bobbi August 2, 2009 at 11:58 am

oooo megs, this post has brought great tears to my eyes. I don’t know what I would do if I lost Bosco but I do know that God can mend your broken heart, know that you are loved and being prayed for right now. so sorry dear.

186 Kristin (NoVA Novice) August 2, 2009 at 12:00 pm

I’m so sorry for your loss, Meghann.

Lots of hugs during this tough time.

187 Jess August 2, 2009 at 12:10 pm

I’m so sorry to hear that, Meghann. Losing a pet is one of the worst days of one’s life. Just know that she is kicking up her heels in doggie heaven right now! Us readers of your blog will be sorry not to see Abbie’s friendly, furry face in your posts too.

Best of luck in these hard times.

188 Katherine H August 2, 2009 at 12:11 pm

Meghann,

It brought tears to my eyes and choked me up to read this. Abbie was such a special pup and I am so sorry for your loss. I have two dogs myself and know the indescribable bond between a dog and its family.

Just remember that she is happy and healthy now and is waiting for you at the rainbow bridge! You will see her again one day!

189 caronae August 2, 2009 at 12:14 pm

Oh honey, I’m so sorry. My baby isn’t in very good health and I can’t bear to think of her day to go. She is irreplaceable. Good luck

192 broccolihut August 2, 2009 at 12:18 pm

Meghann, this news brings tears to my eyes. I have a Jack Russell Terrier who lives with my parents, so I always loved seeing your pictures of Abbie while I was away at school–she always brought a smile to my face. I’ll be keeping you in my prayers.

193 Rose August 2, 2009 at 12:18 pm

I’m so sorry to hear this…. Sending good vibes your way during this time…

200 Veronica August 2, 2009 at 12:27 pm

I have been reading your blog for awhile but have never commented. I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Abbie. I really enjoyed all the stories you shared with us about her and it was obivious how much she was loved and how much she loved you.

201 Amanda August 2, 2009 at 12:28 pm

omg… I am so sorry for your loss. I am a huge animal lover and my dog is my life, so I understand how much pain you must be in right now. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. ๐Ÿ™

202 Jessica August 2, 2009 at 12:33 pm

Meghann, I am SO sorry. I know how difficult it is to lose a pet because they become much more than that- they become your family. My thoughts are with you.

203 Rachel August 2, 2009 at 12:36 pm

Meghann,
My deepest sympathy. My dog passed away six months ago suddenly (she had an undetected tumor) and i know how horrible an unanticipated loss like this can feel. Please try to take care of yourself in this difficult time, even as you grieve. I’m so sorry you have to experience pain like this.

204 Hangry Pants August 2, 2009 at 12:37 pm

Meghann, Look at all the people who are here for you! I am sorry about Abbie and hope you feel better soon.

206 Gloria August 2, 2009 at 12:41 pm

Meghann I’m so sorry. I know how hard this must be because our pets really are part of the family. I’ll be thinking of you and Abbie.

207 Laura August 2, 2009 at 12:42 pm

208 Erin August 2, 2009 at 12:47 pm

I’m so sorry for your loss, Meghann. Abbie was obviously loved dearly.

209 Deanna August 2, 2009 at 12:48 pm

Meghann, I feel like we’ve all come to know Abbie and will miss seeing her in your posts. Feel better soon, she won’t be forgotten.

210 Rebeca August 2, 2009 at 12:48 pm

As a long time reader, I feel like I know Abbie and that she was a precious, beautiful and most of all loved little dog. Remember that you loved and cared for her and you gave her a great life. I’m sending you lots of prayers… Take care!

211 Barbara August 2, 2009 at 12:50 pm

I’m so sorry for your loss. Abbie seemed (from pictures anyways) like a fantastic dog and especially with her being so young I can imagine how hard this is for you. You’ll be in my prayers tonight.

217 Caitlin August 2, 2009 at 1:15 pm

I am so very sorry, Meghann. Losing an animal is one of the most terrible things. Hang in there.

218 amanda August 2, 2009 at 1:16 pm

Oh Meghann I am SO sorry to hear that. I know that this is probably one of the worst things you will have to go through, but just know that we are all here pulling for you. Hang in their my dear.

222 homecookedem August 2, 2009 at 1:23 pm

I’m so sad for you. I am praying for strength for you. How lucky she was to have such a loving mama!

223 Lola August 2, 2009 at 1:29 pm

awwww, I felt like I knew little Abbie. Your love for her was always obvious…she was a special little pooch. I’m so sorry for the sudden and unexpected loss.

224 Marina August 2, 2009 at 1:31 pm

i’m so sorry meghann. what a terrible thing to happen. hang in there!

225 Amandamoo August 2, 2009 at 1:49 pm

I’m giving my puppy so much more love today because of this. Thank you for reminding me how fragile life is. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

226 sarah August 2, 2009 at 1:53 pm

Oh sweetie, I am so sorry! Nothing I can say can take away your pain, but just know that I am thinking of you. Pets really do become our “kids” and the pain we feel when we lose them is really hard. I’ll be thinking of you and know you are in my thoughts and prayers!

227 Bethany August 2, 2009 at 1:56 pm

Meghann,
I can’t believe it – I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine losing one of my pets right now. Abbie was so loved and I’m sure she is in doggie heaven right now content in that fact. It’s tough now, and will continue to be, but you will be ok. Hugs, Bethany*

228 Allie August 2, 2009 at 1:59 pm

((((hugs)))) i am very sorry.

229 Julie August 2, 2009 at 2:11 pm

OMG I am so sorry! I have 2 little dogs that are like me children. I can not imagine what this is like for you. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

230 Emily August 2, 2009 at 2:13 pm

Hi Meghann,

I’ve never commented on your blog before but have been a reader – I’m so sorry to hear about your dog. Please take care and know that so many people are thinking about you.

Emily

231 Brandi August 2, 2009 at 2:17 pm

I am so sorry – you could tell how much Abbie meant to you and I know how hard it is. We’ve had to put down 2 dogs because of cancer in the past, and it is hard to lose them. Take your time to heal and remember all the fun times you two had together.

232 marie August 2, 2009 at 2:29 pm

I am so, so sorry to hear that Abbie has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. You both are in my prayers.

233 runeatrepeat August 2, 2009 at 2:33 pm

I am so so sorry ๐Ÿ™ I can still feel the pain of when my first dog died in highschool…I know it hurts. Hang in there. All dogs go to heaven ๐Ÿ™‚

234 Faith August 2, 2009 at 2:38 pm

no words can fill this void. may angels keep you friend and know that my prayers are with you and abbie. *hugs*

235 Lindsey@Graceful Stride August 2, 2009 at 2:42 pm

Meghann,

I am so very sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine the pain you feel losing Abbie so young. My heart broke when I read this post. Hang on to all the wonderful memories you shared with her and all love she gave you over the past two years.

236 Andrea August 2, 2009 at 2:51 pm

I am sorry to hear this.

237 Amy August 2, 2009 at 2:59 pm

I am so sorry.

238 Danielle C. August 2, 2009 at 3:01 pm

Oh Meghann my heart just broke when I read this news on Caitlin’s blog. RIP Abbie, I know she is over at the Rainbow Bridge and making lots of friends. When I lost my beloved cat a couple of years back the people at petloss.com were very helpful to me, very kind people always willing to lend an ear.

239 Jess August 2, 2009 at 3:11 pm

Meghann,
I know hearing the words “I’m sorry” doesn’t help, but I truly am. I had met Abbie before when you shared her with Robert and she was a very sweet little girl. I’m so glad that you got to spend some special time together on Friday night. I know that you will never be able to replace her, but I hope one day when the time is right you find another “fur-baby” to join in all wonderful adventures you embark on.
Hang in there. <3

240 Becca August 2, 2009 at 3:12 pm

Roomie!!!! I am so sorry to hear about abbie!!!Glad you have lots of great freinds and family to help you cope and get through this rough time!!!

241 Melinda August 2, 2009 at 3:16 pm

Oh Meghann I read your blog all the time and I do not think I have ever posted a comment but I have to today, I M AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS.

242 anabelhartesfude August 2, 2009 at 3:19 pm

I’m so sorry Meghann. ๐Ÿ™

243 Claire August 2, 2009 at 3:32 pm

So sorry to hear about Abby. I know it’s hard, just please don’t blame yourself for anything.

244 Errign August 2, 2009 at 3:36 pm

Meghann,

My heart breaks for you. Your love for Abbie was so apparent to everyone who reads your blog and I can’t imagine the hurt you are feeling right now. Keep smiling up towards Abbie in the sky. :]

245 landoffruitsandnuts August 2, 2009 at 3:44 pm

Oh my gosh Meghann, I don’t know what to say because we all love Abbie because of how much you do. I’m so sorry. Take all the time you need & know we’re all here for you!

246 Katy August 2, 2009 at 4:12 pm

Meghann,

I am so sorry … I saw you update your FB page with the news, and have been thinking of you and Abbie all day. I hope you can see from all of the comments and love you’re getting in the blog world that you have lots of people to reach out to.

Katy

247 Lauren August 2, 2009 at 4:26 pm

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dog. I lost a dog this year as well, and though she was considerably older than Abbie, the loss was still very profound. Having a pet pass is very hard. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing that the two years she spent with you were unquestionably wonderful ones for her.

All my sympathy–hang in there. Abbie will always occupy a special and significant place in your heart.

Lauren

248 Frannie August 2, 2009 at 4:34 pm

I’m so sorry! I hope that your heart heals speedily. I know I would be devastated.

249 psychoj1 August 2, 2009 at 4:38 pm

I am so sorry girl! I know what you feel like although mine wasn’t so abrupt. I’m here for you! You are in my thoughts and prayers!
<3 jess

250 Caitlin August 2, 2009 at 4:53 pm

Meghann, I am echoing what everyone else has already said – I am so, so, so sorry for your sudden loss of Abbie. It’s unbelievable. Take time to grieve. We’ll all miss her pictures and stories.

251 Nicole August 2, 2009 at 5:00 pm

I am so sorry ๐Ÿ™ You are in my thoughts <3

252 snackface August 2, 2009 at 5:05 pm

Meghann, I am so terribly sorry! I’m definitely in tears right now, as I cannot imagine the sheer heartbreak of an intensely loved animal companion. However, you and Abbie had a beautiful life together, and she was the happiest baby in the world. My thoughts and prayers will be with you. Stay strong and take the time you need to heal. I send huge hugs.

253 Niki August 2, 2009 at 5:12 pm

I am so sorry to hear about Abbie. I know it is one of the hardest things to lose a pet you love so dearly. My thoughts are with you through this awful time.

254 *Andrea* August 2, 2009 at 5:14 pm

i am so sorry to hear this news. abbie was adorable and i have never had a puppy but i know how hard it is to lose something you love. stay strong!

255 Meghan August 2, 2009 at 5:22 pm

I am so sorry, Meghann. You and Abbie are both in my thoughts ๐Ÿ™

256 Paige August 2, 2009 at 5:23 pm

Meghann, I’m so sorry to hear about your puppy! Reading what you wrote about her it was obvious she was very very loved.

257 MareBare August 2, 2009 at 5:34 pm

so sorry meghann, its always hard when a pet dies because they give such joy to your family and practically become a member of the family. it sounds corny but “all dogs go to heaven” and hopefully abbie is there now running around with a smile on her face

258 Katrina (gluten free gidget) August 2, 2009 at 5:44 pm

I am so sorry Meghann. I will be praying for you. I know you loved your little girl very much. I’m sure she knew it too.

259 Amy August 2, 2009 at 5:46 pm

I am sitting here typing with tears in my eyes. I am so sorry for your loss. Abbie was truly loved and even though you never got to say goodbye, she knew her mommy loved her. Hugs to you.

260 Sabrina August 2, 2009 at 6:06 pm

I too am sitting here typing with tears in my eyes. I am so sorry, Meghann. My pup is my baby and I don’t know what I would do if I lost him. You are in my prayers. http://rainbowsbridge.com/Poem.htm

261 Lauren @ Team Giles August 2, 2009 at 6:44 pm

Meghann!! NO! I’m so so so sorry. It’s so hard to lose a pet, they’re a part of your family, your life. I’m so sorry.

262 She-Fit August 2, 2009 at 7:08 pm

Awh, I’m so sorry! Hang in there.

263 Jennifer August 2, 2009 at 7:11 pm

I’m so sorry Meghann. It was so clear from all your posts that you loved her so much and took such care of her. She had a very happy life. Hugs.

264 Erin August 2, 2009 at 7:19 pm

Oh goodness, I can’t even begin to tell you how so sorry I am for this tragedy. I have a little girl pup too and I have to say Abbie was one of the features that drew me to, and kept me reading, this blog. I always looked forward to your adventures together and your love and care for her was truly evident. I know there is little that can console you in this extremely difficult time, but I hope all the kind words here help you somewhat. We are all feeling your pain. ((hugs)) Hang in there.

265 Nicole August 2, 2009 at 7:20 pm

I’m so sorry for your loss Meghann. You both are in my thoughts. ๐Ÿ™

266 littledear2 August 2, 2009 at 7:41 pm

OMG Meghann…I am truly so sorry! Loosing a pet is so hard and I know how it feels! You gave Abbie an awesome life and love her so much that came through in all your posts about her. Again I am so very sorry for your loss. Take care.

267 Lindsay August 2, 2009 at 7:46 pm

I am so sorry Meghann. Take your time!

268 Danielle August 2, 2009 at 7:47 pm

I’m so so sorry for your loss, Meghann. I lost one of my kitties in December and was inconsolable for days and still miss her to pieces. Abbie will always be in your heart! I wish I could send you lots of hugs and love!

269 Bridget August 2, 2009 at 7:48 pm

oh my god Meghann, I am SO SO Sorry about Abbie! I know how much she meant to you and sometimes I think loosing a pet is just as bad as loosing a person. If you need anything let me know.

270 Pam August 2, 2009 at 7:57 pm

I’m so sorry for your loss! You are in my thoughts and prayers.

271 Natalie August 2, 2009 at 8:02 pm

I am so sorry for your lost Meghann. We know Abbie means the world to you and knowing she is gone breaks my heart. ๐Ÿ™

You have all our love and support and your in my prayers. <3

272 jsr August 2, 2009 at 8:03 pm

Meghann,
I have been inspired by you everyday. I have never commented but as so many people have said already-I know what it is like to lose a dog. They are wonderful and you gave Abbie a great life. She is gonna watch over you for the rest of your life.
My thoughts are with you,
Kalli

276 ashley (sweet & natural) August 2, 2009 at 8:23 pm

Meghann, I am so sorry to hear about Abbie. Losing a pet is such a difficult thing to go through. We know how much she was loved and I’m sure she’s in doggie heaven now. I hope you feel better. <3

277 Lynn (The Actors Diet) August 2, 2009 at 8:26 pm

i can’t even imagine what you’re going through right now – i too have a jack russell and i’m sure this is beyond difficult. I hope you’re surrounded by loved ones and taking good care of yourself.

278 Simply Fab August 2, 2009 at 8:28 pm

Meghann, I am SO sorry. I read daily and don’t comment, but I want you to know I’m thinking about you. I am just so sorry. The loss of a pet, particularly a sudden one like this is so, so, so hard. Thinking of you!

279 Julie August 2, 2009 at 8:32 pm

hey girl my heart goes out to you <3 can't even imagine how you're feeling right now

280 Anou August 2, 2009 at 8:43 pm

I am a long time reader but first time commenter. I just wanted to let you know that my heart sunk when I read your post. I always loved seeing pictures of Abbie on the blog and she was so cute it always made me smile. I am truly sorry and I hope that you feel better, all those comments show that you are supported by many people. Take care.

281 Casey_Leigh August 2, 2009 at 8:44 pm

Meghann… I can hardly comprehend what you are feeling right now. I am so sorry to hear about your puppy! I also have a 2 year old dog and could not imagine something happening to her. Sending you big internet *hugs*!!!

282 aron August 2, 2009 at 8:44 pm

284 kb August 2, 2009 at 9:02 pm

Meghann, Words can’t express how sorry I am. I’m also a dog lover and have also experienced the heart ache and devastation of losing a very special family member. My thoughts are with you during this very difficult time.

285 MaryBe August 2, 2009 at 9:04 pm

I am so sorry for your loss – Abbie was so sweet

286 Robin August 2, 2009 at 9:12 pm

287 Erin August 2, 2009 at 9:15 pm

Im so sorry about your loss : (

288 Allyson August 2, 2009 at 9:19 pm

I’m a frequent visitor of your sight, and you seem like a very lovely lady. I’m sorry about your puppy. My Scout (West Highland terrier) is also a very close pal of mine and I don’t know what I would do if that happened. Although I live across the country from you (Seattle) do know that my heart goes out and assure you that the tears will end soon. Take care of yourself and surround yourself with love.

289 janetha August 2, 2009 at 9:26 pm

meghann, this is just horrible. i am so sorry that you have lost abbie and my condolences go out to you. i always loved seeing her on your blog, she was such a rambunctious little spirit. my heart aches for you, losing a pup is just the same as losing a child. it’s been about 2 years since mine was hit by a car and let me tell you, it never gets less sad but it does get easier to cope with. hang in there, i am thinking of you <3

290 Carly August 2, 2009 at 9:26 pm

Poor Abbie!! And poor you!! Sending a big hug your way during this difficult time. It’s always hard to lose a family member. Lots of love.

291 Paige August 2, 2009 at 9:33 pm

I’m so so sorry for your loss:-( thinking of you and her in this time of tragedy:-( *hugs*

292 Kirsty August 2, 2009 at 9:35 pm

Hi Meghann, I really regret that my first comment on your blog is one of condolence, but just wanted to pass on my sympathies at your very sad loss.
I’ve been reading your blog for a couple of months and have learnt a lot about healthy living and balancing life from you. Seeing the bond between you and your little girl actually helped convince me to get my own little ball of fluff. So thankyou for that ๐Ÿ™‚
Be strong, laugh and smile at the good times and cry as much as you need to.

293 Christina August 2, 2009 at 9:42 pm

Soooo sooo sorry…my heart and prayers go out to you in this hard time. ๐Ÿ™

294 Nally August 2, 2009 at 9:43 pm

(hugs)

303 Andrea (Fit Healthy Fun) August 3, 2009 at 9:36 am

I am so terribly sorry about your loss. Abbie seemed very special to you. You can’t blame yourself and think “what if…” For some reason, it was meant to be. Remember the good times!

304 Eat Chic August 3, 2009 at 10:44 am

What a beautiful tribute, you gave Abbie the best life a dog could ask for! She was so lucky to have you, you took care of her the best you could and are never to blame. Celebrate the great times you had together as I am sure she will always fill a special place in your heart.

305 Nicci August 3, 2009 at 12:08 pm

Oh, this is a beautiful tribute to Abbie. I’m so sorry for your loss Meghann. When I read your post, I cried. I feel like I know you after all these months of reading your blog and you constant sharing of your life. Abbie lived a short but GREAT life and you were a great owner to her. I wish you the best ๐Ÿ™‚

306 Sarah August 3, 2009 at 1:26 pm

I’m so sorry, Meghann. The love of a pet is something that everyone should experience and cherish. Although her life was shorter than it should have been, it’s the quality of that life that really counts. I’m sure she loved every second of her time with you. Hang in there!

307 J.J. August 3, 2009 at 1:28 pm

I just saw a link to your blog and read about your pup. I currently am going through the same heartache….my 16 yr old doggie has to be put to sleep this afternoon. My parents are taking her in, as I can’t bare to see it, hurts too much. My life revolves around all of my dogs and they are my whole world. Seeing them go is the hardest thing ever. Please take comfort in the fact that you provided her a wonderful life while she was here, and she loved you very much. Take Care….J.J. (from CA)

308 Meg August 3, 2009 at 2:24 pm

Meghann, I have recently been following your blog, and love reading it everyday (this is my first time commenting) I am so sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to you.

309 Stina August 3, 2009 at 3:29 pm

Meghann – I’m so stunned and sorry to hear about your loss! I recently just started reading your blog and it’s obvious your love and affection for Abbie. This post shows once again your compassion, and Abbie obviously had an amazing life! I wish you nothing but love and support!!

310 Amandaa August 3, 2009 at 5:25 pm

i’m really sorry about abbie.

i imagine how tragic it must be for you.
cry as much as you need to, take off from
work and look back on all the awesome times
you and your girl had together.

it is nuts how animals become such a
part of us, huh? how much of a part of
the family they are. so when something
as devastating as this happens-it’s breath
taking and numb.

i am sure that doggie heaven is taking
GREAT care of your little pooch.

xoxoxox

311 S.J. August 3, 2009 at 7:58 pm

Meghann,
I have enjoyed your blog for a while and really felt compelled to write to you to you today because I do not want you to blame yourself AT ALL. My mother is a veterinarian, and when I told her your story, she said that it was NOT the pill that killed poor Abbie–one pill would never do that–but that Abbie must have had some pre-existing genetic condition or something you did not know about. I repeat again, YOU DID NOT DO ANYTHING. It was a freak thing that was unrelated to anything linked to you, and while it’s absolutely tragic enough that she passed, it’s worse if you go around blaming yourself.

Please take care. Abbie was a wonderful dog and you gave her such a full life.

312 Thursday's Child August 3, 2009 at 10:10 pm

Oh my god, I am so so so sorry. I love animals and I had come to love Abbie as though she was my own. I’m so sorry. Oh my god. I don’t even know what to say. I wish there was something, anything I could do. She was such an awesome little dog!

313 Carly August 5, 2009 at 6:54 pm

wow.. I am so sorry to read this. I was crying while reading this. I know that you are very sad and I feel so bad! I hope Maddie will bring you the comfort you need to get through this difficult time.
