If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.” A. A. Milne

I fink Winnie the Pooh has a pugs heart and if you look at him real close he even looks round and sweet like a little pug.  He says things the best, straight from his own heart.

Today wesa had to tell Abby goodbye...but just until later.  I nose her parents are sad and gonna miss hers cos that is how humans say goodbye.  Wif tears, a heart that hurts and all their precious memories.  Us pugs whisper instead, "see you later ....after while...." and then we high five as we are dancing across the bridge cos wesa nose what is waiting for us around the corner and across the bridge. 

Mom let us all sleep wif her last night.  We finks hers needed to be able to put her hand on us, it comforted hers.  She whispered some fings to us that she thought was important that we know. It was all about how much she loved us and how much we have taught her.  I asked her, "momma you mean like how I taught you to love the road crew boys even tho theys got me in trouble?" and hers says, "no..not that."  Isa don't nose what hers is babbling about then.  Hers toles us this also,"when it is time for us to leave hers she wants us to run across that bridge and not look back.  Hers wants us to meet up wif our others brother and sister, and find all our friends.  No sadness or tears. And  then down the road hers will meet up wif us, and wesa will all be together."  I hope my mom has a tom-tom or mapquest cos hers gets losted easy.  I toles hers maybe I had better stay around cos Isa might haf to help her find us.  She hugged me tight.

I toles her it sounds like a picnic and hers says, it will be.  Fun, and hugs and more love them all of us have ever felt.

So Abby's mission is completed here on earth.  She has left behind lessons for her parents to learn and now they will begin to travel down a whole new road.  She rejoiced in all the love in her home, and she has taught them how to share it.  There will be others waiting for them we are sure.  Mom says the biggest gift Abby left for her is Mary Ann's friendship, something she may never have experienced without Abby and us.

Run fast little Farm fast.

Angus McConnell, Stella Rose, Margaret Mae, Mean Ole Cat Dietzman and our Momma

  11. We are so sorry Abby left her people and crossed the bridge but diabetes is such a nasty disease that her time here may not have been very good either. But that is not consolation to a broken heart. Join your furiends at the bridge Abby!
