Abby was a wonderful addition to our family. She was 7-years-old when we adopted her, and she made herself at home with us right away. Even though she was a tripod, she loved going to the dog park to chase balls. She would find a ball and persist in dropping it at my feet until I picked it up and threw it for her. Like a typical lab, she loved food. However, she was a polite girl, sitting just outside the kitchen to see if she might receive a surprise treat from a meal being prepared (one of her favorites was broccoli).
When we moved this year to a new house without stairs to the backyard, she enjoyed going outside on her own and laying on the grass under a shady tree. Our family miss her terribly, but are so grateful to have been able to spend the second half of her life with her.
