The Abster

 

We are very sad to announce the passing of Abby to the rainbow bridge. Our dwarf German Shepherd Dog, Abby, aka “The Abster” is so much fun! She is a small dog with a very BIG personality. After several weeks of heartache following the loss of our first dwarf GSD and best friend, Brandon, at the age of 7, we came across the GSRNE website and saw Abby’s picture. Another dwarf! We had been hoping for 7 years to meet another dwarf and there she was. Abby has settled into our home and hearts very quickly. When we first brought her home, she immediately inspected every room, opening doors as she went! She is a bundle of energy, does everything with great enthusiasm and has quite a zest for life. The Abster chases every furry thing she sees. She is very sociable and loves to play with squeaky toys, stuffed animals, and tennis balls. Our pretty girl loves attention and is admired often. She greets visitors at the door, brings them a toy, offers a paw, and always rolls over for a belly rub. She has a tremendous appetite and is a skilled food thief! She adores riding in the car and will jump into anyone’s open car! She travels with us everywhere. Her favorite place to visit is the beach where she chases seagulls and swims, eagerly hopping waves. The Abster is always alert and very nosy. She inspects everything and patrols from each window in the house. She is a bossy and pushy girl (our little “bulldozer”), not in the least bit shy, and fearless. She is a talker, forever communicating, loudly. The name Abby means “gives joy”, and she is true to her name.

Although we can never replace our “Little Angel”, thanks to Janice and the volunteers of GSRNE, we have the joy of another dwarf GSD in our lives. Special thanks to Marianne and Karen, Abby’s foster moms, and Sue, her Buddy, for taking such good care of our little girl until GSRNE united us.
