While we don't know the actual day of her birth, we use October 28th, since that's what the vet put on her paperwork when she was checked out first the first time. The best guess is that she was 4 weeks old.

She was taken away from her mother and ditched by some people who had two unsupervised, unaltered dogs and (surprise ) ended up with a litter of puppies. Apparently, they couldn't sell all the month-old puppies . I was only supposed to foster her until she was old enough to be adopted. But, I'm a complete failure as a foster mom. It was an 8 hour round-trip to get her and, by the time she was curled up in the sleeve of my jacket 10 minutes into the return trip, I knew she wasn't going anywhere. She's grown into such a sweet, funny, playful, snuggly, lovable young lady! Jack and Naala love her as much as I do.

Here she is then:








And now. All grown up:

Happy birthday, Abby. You chose your date well -- it's Artie's birthday too. Hmmmm, Artie... Abby... same birthday... sounds like a match to me, if Abby doesn't mind older men.

Happy Birthday Abby. Do you get to party with Artie? What a pretty girl you are. I love your ears. Had I been your foster mom I would have kept you too.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes!
I'm sure Abby would love to party with Artie, but he's a little too far away.
