My Letter to My Dog

After reading A Letter to My Dog by Robin Layten featuring letters from various dog owners, I was inspired to write a letter to our dog, Abby.  Here it is:

Dear Abby a/k/a Dabby Doo,
You are the best dog we could ever have!  You won our hearts the first day we met you with your soft thick fur, your big beautiful brown eyes, your sweet personality, your curly fluffy tail, your big smile and your gentleness.  I am amazed at how well-behaved you were from the first day we met you.  You got along with our two cats just fine and fit right into our family with no problem at all. 
I love how all kinds of people are drawn to you.  It was so much fun taking you to dog training classes at PetSmart because you managed to make people laugh and still were the best at following commands most days.  You are so eager to please and easy to train.  We are so proud of you!  I love to watch you enjoy the outdoors and wish we had an area where you could run off leash like you did at the park the one day when the clasp broke off and you got in a good run.  I couldn’t believe how fast you could go and how happy you were that day! 
The bond you have with Gerard is heartwarming to me.  I know you will always be a daddy’s girl, but just hope you know how much I love you too.  I enjoy feeding you breakfast every morning and reviewing the commands you learned.  I like giving you big hugs and belly rubs too.  You are such a good dog and I am so glad we decided to look on Petfinder for you when we did.  You have certainly enriched our lives!
Also got to read A Letter to My Cat. The pictures in this book are gorgeous!  Why not write a letter to your pet and post it on your blog.  Then leave the link in the comments.

it's always a good idea to let our loved matter how many legs...know they are loved; it's always later than we think.
