Today we had to say a final goodbye to one of best friends ever - our constant companion who loved us no matter what through thick and thin, through lots of moves, traveling North America and was always happiest when she was closeest to us. She never met anyone she didn't win over. Gabbi lost her battle with cancer this afternoon. She was beginning to visibly suffer so much that allowing her to go was the last act of love we could do for her. Our vet gave us a poem that meant a lot to her when she lost her dog, and it meant a lot to us as well. "Cut the leash that holds me here, dear friend, and let me run. Once more a strong a steady dog, my pain and struggle done".
So many of our friends knew and loved Gabbi, and we wanted to give you the chance to share in our tears and remembrance of her tonight. Gabbi, Mommie and Daddy love you so much and have a huge hole in our hearts tonight...goodbye our sweet puppy. Gabriella Noelle Phillips - November 1998-April 30, 2011. Please feel free to post any stories or memories you have of her. We uploaded pictures of her from puppyhood to now, if you'd like to see them.
