Gabby - my sweet girl

 We knew, right at the start when we adopted our sweet Gabby girl that her time with us will be limited. That we had only a little time to show her that humans care and humans love. She came to us first as a foster and then as our own girl through Labrador rescue. Our vet was convinced that she came from a puppy mill and was bred until her body could produce no more - and then dumped. To us, she was the sweetest girl ever. She just gave love from the moment she came into our house - she literally gulped all the love and attention and just gave and gave in return. With us she experienced the beach and holidays, love and nature walks. Evenings cuddling in the arms of a human sister or brother - and boy did she love those cuddles, tummy rubs and brushing.

Gabby love, rest in peace - we know your body could go on no further. Our love for you will live forever in our hearts. 

We would like to plead to each and everyone of you to NOT support unethical breeding practices. Be careful where and whom you buy dogs from. Report unethical breeding practices and show heart to a rescue. Rescue dogs have a special love to share. Adopt don't shop - almost every breed has a rescue organization that have wonderful dogs available to adopt. And if you want a puppy - makes sure that the breeder does so with the right ethics in place.


  1. Bless her heart.
    My deepest condolences on your loss.

  2. So sorry for your loss. But rest assured you gave Gabby so much love and happiness in her golden years. Couldn't agree with you more on NOT supporting unethical breeding. These dogs suffer so much. It's heartbreaking.

  3. Sad and touching post! Sorry about your loss!

  4. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeg hugs.

  5. Aw man, Gabby was so gorgeous. How old was she? She sure was blessed to find her way into your home.
    I can't stand animal abusers. Some of the things animal go through are shocking, makes my heart cry.
    Labradors are the best, but I think I'm biased ;-)


So what's on your mind?
