Sweetest, prettiest gracile red-nose pibble, Abigail. Inherited from our daughter when the pibble/mastiff mix (whom Abby raised) got to be bigger than she. Then Abby felt that she needed to assert herself, and fights ensued. Baby gates were installed, and peace returned. She loved everyone she met: strangers were just friends she hadn't met yet. At 12, she developed an auto-immune disease, the medicine for which made her miserable, until the day she could no longer stand up. A vet came to release her from her misery, and now she roams free, healthy again, and loving everyone she meets, across the rainbow bridge.
