I miss my girl dog


"Abby"
painting by Vicky Knowles

I'm really missing my girl today. It's five months today that we lost Abby Louise. I thought sharing this painting by artist, Vicky Knowles would be a good thing to do today in Abby's honor. Vicky and I participated in a Pet Portrait Swap for EBSQ three years ago. She painted Abby and I painted her dog, Lisa (below) who had already passed away. It's interesting...both Lisa and Abby died of kidney failure at about the same age of 12. I look at Vicky's painting now and it makes me laugh and think of how funny and precious Abby was. She had THE biggest brown eyes that would melt your heart...and she definitely WAS a princess. Thanks, Vicky...this painting is even more special now that Abby is gone. I love you, Abby...hope you're having a blast running in the green grass.

I know Abby and Lisa are up there in heaven, chasing an infinite number of fluffy cottontails. How precious to have such wonderful paintings of each dog! All the best wishes for you today, Linda!

I miss my girl dog, too. Her name was June, and she died about three years ago. Actually, just last week I had a dream that she was sleeping next to me in bed. It was one of those yucky days, and I know she came to comfort me. Love you, Junie!

Abby is always with you, Linda, smiling at you when you least expect it. What a sweet picture of a lovely dog ... those eyes are magnificent - a lovely remembrance to have.

Hi Linda! Adorable paintings of both doggies! And, yes, Abby and Lisa are both still here, running and rolling in the grass. I 100% believe this!!
