  11. So sorry for your loss.Thank you for all your posts. Abi will live on in all our memories. God bless and comfort you .Love from Sue in Cornwall , England. xxx

  12. Dear Brenda, I am so sorry. Abi was such an adorable pupster. I loved to see her as she trotted about the patio, dug in the flower pots, or simply surveyed her realm from her spot on the sofa. Abi and her exploits brought joy to so many. Thank you for sharing her and Charlie with us. Sincerely, DH

  13. They are indeed special angels who come into our lives for a reason. Like so many of the comments you have here, I broke down and cried to read your blog today Brenda. My heart bleeds for you.

    I say this so earnestly for I too am in the throes of grief having lost a most precious part of my life just short of two months ago. My beautiful boy was a light in my heart every single day for 13 years and his loss crushed me beyond words. When not wailing like a baby, I’ll hum a line in a song like, “the sweetest days I found … I found with you”. It will help me to remember …he came for a reason.

    For how true it is that for so many of us these dear ones spark of the divine in ways that tell us there is so much more and we can love them so so dearly that our hearts truly shatter into a thousand pieces when they leave us.

    Have confidence to know your dear little Abi is alright Brenda. As dark as this moment in time is for you now, she touched your life for a reason. She was indeed mean’t to be.

    God bless you dear.

  14. I am so sorry about your sweet Abi. Sending hugs to you and Charlie at this sad time.

  15. Dear Brenda,
    I have been reading your blog for years now, never written to you but feel I known you and your love for your fur babies for years. After the last post Abi was constantly on my mind and I was dreading reading today’s post. So so very sorry for what you and Charlie are going through right now. Words are not going to help but be sure that Abi knows you loved her – she is one lucky dog to have a mom like you.
    Abi is now waiting across the Rainbow Bridge… watching over you and Charlie.
    Hugs to you and Charlie

  16. So very sorry for your loss of dear, sweet Abi. I’m glad she did not suffer. However, I am worried about you and Charlie. My heart is heavy grieving with you.

  17. Oh, my dear Brenda, I am so, so sorry that you’ve lost Abi. My eyes are filled with tears and my heart aches for you. Dear little Abi was such a love with such a big personality in that little body. Oh, my, what will Charlie do? Loving them and losing them is just so, so hard. It just tears you up and you never get over it.

    I send my love and healing tho’ts–although, who can imagine healing without our babies? I don’t know where you will find comfort but I know there will be moments when you do. Loving and caring for Charlie will help you. The every minute pain of loss will subside gradually over the coming days, but Abi’s absence will be sorely felt and grieved, I know.

    Dear little Abi, may you be at rest and free from your pain. May you run free and may your spirit be happy.

  18. Many prayers for you dear Brenda. Sending love your way. If every sweet dog knew the life your dogs know, there wouldn’t be rescue dogs. All of us readers love you and each are sending big hugs, love and prayers of peace and comfort to you and Charlie.

  19. Oh Brenda my heart hurts for you and Charlie. It’s a sad day in all our lives because you were so kind to share Abi with us. Her spirit still survives with you. I hope you and Charlie are comforted knowing that we all care about you so much. ?

  20. Goodbye Sweet little Abi Rose…. and pray for comfort for you Brenda and Charlie… it is with a heavy heart and tears that I send this…. I’m so very sorry.

  21. I am so very, very sorry 🙁 I’ve read your blog for several years and and feel as though you and Abi and Charlie are almost like family 🙂 Abi will be missed by everyone who “knew” her because she was such a special girl. My heart is breaking for what you and Charlie are going through – and will be going through for such a long time as you grieve. I just lost my “little princess” on March 4th after 19 years together. I’m still trying to cope with it and so is another cat who loved her more than anybody else (me included). I am so sorry for the grief and suffering you and Charlie are going through right now. Abi was very special and will be deeply missed. She was very loved. I’m so sorry.

  22. So sorry for your painful loss.All your readers are heart broken too.Nothing will be the same.Stay strong for little Charlie.Thinking of you both with a heavy heart.

  23. Brenda – So sad for your losing sweet little Abi. Right now the pain seems unbearable, I’m sure. When I lost my little Buddy 2 years ago, I thought I would never recover. But I have learned to live with the loss.

    I think of all the things he taught me about love and acceptance. We adopted him when he was 2. He only had three legs but he didn’t know it. He ran like the wind. He would lick us over 200 times in a single sitting. The more we laughed, the more he would lick.

    When he was experiencing some of the worst effects of having a brain tumor, I learned to rock and pat him to sleep. If that didn’t work, I would lay him on my chest while I was laying down. I’d tell him we were heart to heart. It calmed both of us immensely. Even though I knew where we were headed, I treasured those last weeks with him. He is still in my heart.

    I do believe we will see our beloved animals again because it is clear there will be no tears in heaven. If I don’t see Buddy waiting for me, I will cry. And I am looking forward to seeing him with all his legs! And the licking – what greater joy could there be!

    Or maybe we will find out that these sweet animals were angels sent to minister to us. Seems likely to me.

    Sadly all the joy of having Abi now seems gone with her death. But I hope that before too long, you can look back at the joy and that the pain won’t be so sharp. Hugs to you and Charlie.

  24. So sorry for your loss of your sweet beautiful Abi. You gave her a wonderful loving home in return for the love and joy she brought to you. Praying for you and Charlie.

  25. Dearest Brenda, I have been reading your blog for the past five years but have never commented because everyone else says it all. I don’t have a blog, but am on Instagram and Facebook. I AM SO SORRY to read about Abi, my prayers are
    With you and little Charlie. I also have two dogs. If I lived close I would pick you up and take you for a long ride in the country❣️??? Linda

  26. I am so very sorry. Abi was so lucky to have you as a mom who took such good care of her and you were blessed to have such a special pup in your life. Take care.

  27. Brenda I know how hard this is and how heavy your heart is right now. I bet little Charlie is wondering what happened to his sister. May all our prayers and virtual hugs help you with this hard loss. My heart goes out to you.

  28. I have never met you in person, only read your blog, but my I am so sad for you! I have a sweet furbaby that is 7 1/2 and I cannot even think of how I would feel if she passed away. All I can say is cherish all the wonderful memories of sweet Abi sneaking into all the photos you took for your blog. We all loved seeing her sweet face!

  29. I know this is heartbreaking for you, Brenda, and I’m so very sorry. Abi had a wonderful life with you as her Mama. Nobody could have loved her or cared for her more than you did. I can see that I am just one of many thinking of you today.

  30. I have looked forward to your posts for years, but am just a silent fan…until today. My computer had been down for a couple days and as soon as I got it working again, I came straight to my email to see if there was any news about Abi. Just wanted to let you know I was so so sorry to know she has passed away. Sending comfort and peace with the hope that all the precious memories will warm your heart. When my 13yr. old chihuahua passed away, it felt like an actual hole in my chest, physical pain along with the deep emotional scar. I’m thinking of you and hope you know what a good doggie mama you were to her.. I loved reading about the dogs’ daily doings.

  31. I feel like Abi was my dog who just passed. I am so sad for you and I hope peace comes your way soon.

  32. Brenda, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you and Charlie make it through this hard time knowing how much we all cared. Abi was such a sweet girl and I know she will be missed. She’ll always have a place in your heart and memories.

  33. Dear Brenda,
    Words are never sufficient at times like this. I hope that you can feel all the love and support that your friends are sending you and that it will help.

    Alice g

  34. With love and prayers sent to you. Memories and stories of Abi will help fill the holes in your heart and turn that ache to more love and joy.

  35. I don’t know what else to say that someone hasn’t already eloquently said. You and Charlie lean on each other, stuck like glue. He’s needs you as much or more as you need him. They can’t understand like we do. My heart is hurting for you both and little Abi who is running free and joyful now. Sweet angel girl. Much love Brenda. You are an amazing, loving mama. What a gift she got to belong to you.

  36. Hope you find comfort in the fact you gave her a wonderful life. Thoughts of comfort being sent your way

  37. I’m so sorry. Abi had such a wonderful life with you and Charlie! Treasure the good memories. She will live on forever in your heart…. I know how much it hurts though! I am praying for you and Charlie.

  38. Dear Brenda, Shedding tears for you and sending my very deepest sympathy! Just lost one of my precious dachshunds two months ago and I still miss her everyday. Just know that you WILL feel joy again, and the ache will become less. You and Charlie will get through this together! God bless!!!

  39. Dear Brenda, you and Charlie have been in my heart and prayers. May the beautiful memories comfort you.

  40. Brenda, I read CLH daily, and I am so so sorry. I hope that your knowing that you were a wonderful mama to Abi will bring you comfort and peace. Hold Charlie close, and know you are surrounded by those who treasure you.

  41. Abi, you will be missed! What a lucky pup to have had such a loving home. You got to taste a bit of heaven before the real thing. My condolences, Brenda. It’s never easy to lose them.

  42. Brenda…prayers being said for you and Charlie. I cry for you as a mama of several furry babies for years. This is the worst part of of being a pet MaMa. I believe that our pet spirits will meet us in Heaven someday….this is just my personal belief and that makes me happy. Sending you a big hug. Blessings, Carolyn Gilbert

  43. A sad and mournful day for you and Charlie. Abi was where she most wanted to be, with you and Charlie. I am sure she was at peace being at home when her time came. You will always have your loving memories of Abi. Right now that is scant comfort, but it is true that the most powerful healers are time, family and friends who share the loss with you and understand what it is. We are all sending you love and positive energy.

  44. I can only repeat what so many others have written here today. Abi was a sweet little peanut and was so well loved and cared for. I’m sorry for your loss.

  45. Oh Brenda I am so sorry about Abi… I know she was a loved and happy little girl with you in her life. I will miss her too, can’t imagine your pain. I am thinking of you with sadness.

  46. I am so sorry for the loss of your Abi it is such a painful loss. My heart goes out to you.

  47. I am truly sorry about your losing Abi Brenda…such a precious little sweetheart…may you and Charlie be at peace knowing she is now free from pain and suffering…Nancy

  48. so very sorry for your loss, may you take some small comfort in the days ahead knowing you did everything you could

  49. I didn’t want to open your post today either as other readers have commented. There really are no words to say right now, but I just wanted you to know that I am thinking of you and feel your grief as I just went through this (again) a few months ago as many of your other readers. I hope you find comfort in the very kind comments and expressions of sympathy. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers on this very sad day. Blessings and peace.

  50. The incredibly hard part of having great joy, love and companionship for many years. Love to you and Charlie.

  54. Brenda,
    I am so, so, sorry for your loss. I know that you loved her more than anything and it breaks my heart to think of your sadness, however at the same time , let some happiness occupy a small part of your mind knowing that she is no longer suffering. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.

  55. Brenda dear, I’m so sorry to read these words. You were so brave to bring her home so you could stay with her until the end of her sweet life. Take time for you and Charlie. He must be so lost too. ((❤))

  56. So very sorry for your loss. When our last dog passed, I said I would never get another one
    and we haven’t. It has been 20 years now and I still miss him and think of his cute ways.

  57. Brenda:
    My heart is aching for you and Charlie. I know how hard it is to loose our “kids”. I just lost my little Havanese 6 weeks ago and it still hurts. I am thinking of you and sending hugs.

  58. With deepest sympathy. May you find comfort and peace knowing that Abi knew without a doubt how very much she was loved.

  59. Dear Brenda, my prayers are with you and Charlie today. Your loss, I know is so heartbreaking and difficult to bear. WE, reading your blog, are all so saddened.
    Someday tho, your grief will get softer, and sweet memories of Abi, will bring smiles to your face. You will see Abi again, when she crosses the rainbow bridge, to jump into your arms once again.
    Many hugs being sent…

  60. Held her dear till the end. It hit me like the other readers, we know how much your pupsters mean to you. You and Charlie take care of each other while the grieving ends with sweet memories of your Angel Abi,
    Kathleen in Az

  62. I am so sorry for your loss Brenda. Abi was a beautiful, loving and happy girl. It is such a raw pain when we lose a dear one like this. Take time for yourself and Charlie. Be kind and loving to yourself and Charlie. Remember most of all that you gave Abi a wonderful, loving home for all of her life. You gave her all she needed and most of all love. She loved you and she led a happy life.
    This website helped me when I lost my dear ones. Maybe it can help you.
    Love and healing thoughts for you and Charlie,

  63. Brenda, I’m so very sorry for the loss of your sweet girl, Abi. Thinking of you with love.

  64. I know your pain and grief is overwhelming and I wish I had words to comfort you. Try to comfort yourself by knowing that you loved her unconditionally and she returned your love the same way. She was a bright spot in your life and her memory will always remain bright. Those of us grieving with you really do feel your pain because most of us have lost a fur baby that was a vital part of our lives. Please keep us posted about how you are doing and know that we want to surround you with love and understanding.

  65. Dear Brenda; I dreaded opening this message from you today and am crying as I type this. I wish I had a message that would help in your time of grief but I know of no such message. Please be comforted in your grief in the knowledge that you gave Abi a wonderful life of caring by her best Momma. May God be with you and Charlie.

  66. My heart is breaking for you and Charlie. Sending prayers for comfort. There just are no words that are adequate right now, my friend. (((Hugs))) and blessings.

  67. Oh Brenda, My heart goes out to you. I am so very very sad for you. I feel your loss. I have been following you for a few years and I feel like I knew her and I will miss her personality on your blog. Try and keep your chin up.. Sending love and sympathy from OKC.

    1. I am so sorry for you and Charlie. Find comfort knowing Abi is at peace and that she had a wonderful life with you and Charlie.

  74. Brenda, I am so sorry. This is heartbreaking. I used to be a vet tech and I came to realize what a dog wants most is to have a family to love and be loved by. Many never get that. You gave Abi the best family and love imaginable. That’s one of the reasons this hurts so much. Gentle hugs to you and Charlie.

  75. I am thinking of you Brenda, over the Atlantic Ocean. Iknow what it is to loose a baby fur.
    There is nothing to say. Remember she has a wonderful life with such a mama like you.

  76. Brenda I did not want to open this post today, actually I dreaded it because I knew the sad news that was to come.
    There are no words to express what I know you’re feeling from the death of your beloved, and oh so special Abi Rose.
    I will not say the usual catch phrases . I know you and your baby girl had a connection and that your heart aches. Grieving hurts like no other pain, but I know Charlie will comfort you (he also suffered a loss) during this time of letting go. You’re hurting, the depth of this pain is crushing, but please remember that your over the miles friends are here for you. ? We are crying with you Brenda. ?

  77. I am so sorry for your loss. You did everything you could for her. She knew she was your girl. Still is.

  78. With tears in my eyes I’m praying for you and also little Charlie, who will be missing his sweet sister. I’m so sorry Brenda, I hope knowing that you gave her the best possible life will help you during this difficult time. Abi felt your love as she took her last breathe, having her with you at the end was the best decision. Give Charlie extra cuddles now, you will both need that. (((Hugs)))

  79. Tears……….I have a precious bracelet that I bought when we lost our precious Lab a year ago…..it has a paw print on it with the words “No longer by my side but forever in my heart”…….Abi will forever be in your heart too. Crying with you…….

  87. Brenda, I am so sorry my friend for your loss. I feel every single ounce of your pain and I am crying hysterically as I type this. I wish there was something I could do, I’m only glad she didn’t suffer too long, and grateful that she had such a wonderful life with you.
