Unhappy UPDATE: Abby has been found

It is with great sadness that I share with you that Abby has been found. She has passed away. It appears that the night she disappeared she tried to cross a small creek and was swept down stream and drowned. She was found still wearing her little pink jacket and her tags. She was covered in leaves, mud and branches. The neighbors who found her are washing her off and returning her to her family for proper burial. Rest in sweet peace little one. You will truly and forever be missed.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support.

So sad!!! At least the family has some type of closure instead of wondering where she is...God bless the people who found her and are returning her to her owners. My prayers are with them.

Oh I'm so sorry! The poor little thing... But at least the family won't be forever wondering and can give her a proper burial. I'm so sorry for them.

How very sad. What a horrible thing to know your dog had to go through that. I feel for the owners.

Oh I have tears flowing!!! ... the dear little soul! However, I know if the 'facts' can't be changed... if I were the owner, I'd want to know for sure that she had passed and not always 'wonder" , and how very kind of the neighbors to 'prepare' her and give her to the owners. There's a lot to be said for the 'closure"!

Bridget if you have any more contact with Abby's owners..please tell them my heart goes out to them.

RIP dear little one.... you touched so many hearts !

So odd that all those sightings... with no pink vest on... can't help but wonder about that??

I was thinking of her only a few hours ago. I'm so sorry for little Abby, her parents and you, Bridget. I know you gave so much of yourself in the search for her. She is at peace now and I hope you will find it soon as well.

Oh no, I'm sooo sorry to hear this I've been praying for little Abby, and for you as you've been helping to search for her.
