Dear Abby

What is Lucy peeking at out the window?


Aha! Abby has come for a visit!
Can you believe that this sweet little dog is 14 or 15 years old?


Abby visits when her family is out of town, and Lucy
 is always a little jealous at first, but the 2 of them get
 along quite well.


Abby loves people, but her favorite person at our house is Lauren.
When he gets home, Abby sits with such devotion at his feet,
 and makes a little whining noise, begging for his attention.
I think he secretly likes it, although he pretends not to.
He calls her "Dear Abby".

Her hearing is fading, she isn't as fast as she used to be,
and there is a little gray around that cute little puppy face,
but she will always be Dear Abby.
Thanks to her family for letting her stay with us awhile.

Oh, she is a sweetie! I really love her name too :) When we named our youngest daughter, Abbey, we soon learned it is a very popular name for dogs!

Ahh, Dear Abby is such a pretty little dog!:) How sweet that you care for her and love her like you do. She is a very fortunate pup to have your family to enjoy while hers is away. Is she a neighbor's pup?:)

What a lovely idea for a photo, Lucy looking out the window at her friend.
Lovely tribute to special friends.
