It’s with a broken heart and many, many shed tears that we write to tell you we lost Abbie on October 9th, 2015.

She started having symptoms in August and her Vet told us she suspected a brain tumor. Unable to believe that in spite of scans, tests etc., we explored the possibilities of a stroke and even West Nile Virus. In spite of several medications, she became progressively worse and on October 8th, after I had a conference with our Vet, she told me it was time for Abbie’s sake to let her go. We did so on October 9th.

She was our third Brit and we admit she touched our hearts more than the others. She overcame so much fear from her previous life and she gave so much. The love poured out of her when she looked at you. Letting her go was one of the hardest things that we ever had to do but we couldn’t let her continue to go on the way that she was.

We will, in the future, we’re sure, have another Brit but there will never be another Abbie.
