Car problems behind us, we cruised onto my day off where Alf made a trip to the groomers for a mid winter haircut.
With the weekend, we did slow down for the really nice weather on Saturday, and we spent a little bit of time outside.
Finally, I want to share with you some sad news that I got this week. Paul, the owner of the Barkalot Brothers called me to let me know that Abe has crossed to the Rainbow Bridge. He also sent the below e-mail to Lab Rescue which one coordinator shared with me.
It is with much sadness that I must tell you that I had to have Abe put down last Sunday. He was having a seizure and I called his vet who lives up the street ... He came and took his temperature that was 108.5 and I told the vet to put Abe down as I could not stand to see him suffer any longer. Abe passing is really hard for me, he was my special needs buddy and even with his blindness and diabetes he was all dog and heart. You would never know about his disability. In all the years giving Abe insulin he never gave me any trouble. I miss him very much and I am heartbroken. I think George misses him also.I was grateful that Paul called me to share the news. We talked for nearly an hour, and I think it gave him the chance to talk about Abe's loss, and for me it gave me the chance to let him know that I share the loss of Abe with him. I am so grateful that Abe and George were returned to him, and that Abe left this life with the person who loved him first.
I thank you and all the wonderful people at Lab rescue for taking care of my boys when I couldn't. I am forever thankful to you gals and forever heartbroken over Abe. Sorry to have to tell you this horrible news.

God speed to Abe and prayers of peace and comfort to Paul and George too.
