    >the other picture of Abbey, and this handwritten note on pink paper:

    >"Dear Mer,
    >I know that you will be happy to know that Abbey arrived safely and
    >soundly in Heaven! Having the pictures you sent to me was such a big help.
    >I recognized Abbey right away.

    >You know, Meredith, she isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with

    >One of my angels is taking care of this for me. I hope the little book

    Okay, I'm cryin' now.

    We had to say goodbye to our baby 10 days ago, Gus, a seven year old Bernese Mountain Dog. He suffered a spinal injury jumping to retrieve a french fry, of all things, and became irreversibly paralyzed as a result. My wife, myself and the four little ones all got to be with him at the end, which was a tremendous blessing.

    I thank God for having allowed us to share the years with Gus, and I'm sure he's with Abbey now, gnawing on a rubber duck.

    Thank you for sharing your post. Made my day.

    Merry Christmas.
