kate, i'm so so sorry. he was sweet as pie. ella and I are thinking of you.
He was truly one-of-a kind, darling, as well as the sweetest, softest little granddog ever. Much love to you and Chris.
Abraham Lincoln and I never met, but he looks doughty and amiable. How sad to lose someone who's so well woven into your life!
that's really sad...i'm so sorry for you.
This is truly a devastating day for GFD Inc. and fans who admired his unique pizzazz and particular insight. My heart goes out to you and the Yachtsman.
Abe Lincoln was very special to you and to everyone who knew him. We all miss him and are sorry to see him gone.Dad
So sorry to hear this. Goodbye Abe - you were a good one! C&J
So sorry to hear that, Kate. From the stories your Greek stepmother has told, he had a heckuva life and gave a lot of love. Jamie, Taj and I are thinking of you guys.George
Oh, it makes me cry just reading these response. Abe was the best nephew I ever could have dreamed of having. He was such a good snuggler and protector!I miss him like crazy town already. Oh Abe Lincoln, I love you so much!
Tears in my eyes, pain in my heart. G'bye, G'boy.
Words do not do justice to the emotion... I am so sorry about Abe - the dog, the legend. I think I need a glass of pink wine! Kate, I love you and wish you many happy Abe memories.
Abe had an enormous heart and a beautiful old soul. He made a lasting impression on all of us. We will miss his doggy love but will never forget him.
You, Chris, and the Stinker have been in my thoughts a bunch Kater. Sending you much love.Sometimes, in my day job, I find my faith in humanity getting a little shaky. It's quickly restored when I think instead about what you did Kater.You gave a street dog a chance at a great life. You stuck by him and stuck with it even though it wasn't always a breeze and even though he wasn't always easy to manage or easy to handle. Of course, the Abe some of us came to know and love was (mostly!) a more subdued and easy going fellow than the stories I've heard from his Chicago days suggested. Regardless, you never quit or gave him up because it wasn't easy or convenient. Many people would have (and do every day) but you never did. Instead you raised a sweet wonderful boy who made lots of friends and touched lots of lives. I know you received as much as you gave but I hope you also know that you gave Abe the three most important things I think we can give our pets - a safe and comfortable home, an endless supply of love, and respect for his dignity until his last day. All animals - and people for that matter - should be so blessed.You gave him a great life Kate - a truly wonderful and great life. And he loved you every day for that.
Kate,Abe went with you like peanut butter with jelly. I neve saw a dog who loved beggin' strips so much. He was such an easy dog to be around thanks to the loving home you gave him after his rough start. All our love - Julie, Travis & Tyler
we are so sorry to hear this. Losing a pet is so damn hard, it just rips your heart out. But you know you did the right thing and gave him the best life possible. Take comfort in that. xo
Thank you for the wonderful comments and e-mails and flowers and love. I'm crazy lonely for my dog, but I don't feel alone, thanks to my husband and family and friends. Abe was, in the words of Sue Shu, a g'boy, and we'll be missing him for a very long time.
I can't believe Abe has been gone for a year. I just cried my little eyes out reading this post and the comments. I still miss Abe today as much as I did on September 3, 2009. I love you Abe Lincoln!
Oh Abe, you've been on my mind all day today. I love you little Mister.
