Abby…..To Honor A Hero…..


We recently received this email from Jenni Chambers of Bedford, Virginia….. “I’m emailing to ask that you make our baby girl Abby, a 3 year old chocolate lab, be your pet of the day. The reason I ask is because she risked her life to save one of her owners, Mark. His house caught on fire early this past Friday morning, and had Abby not investigated and woken him up, he may not be with us. The fire and smoke was so bad that he had to jump from a second story window. He went back in so many times to save her but couldn’t find her. Abby loved her daddy, more than the world and Mark loved her just the same. He can’t accept the loss of his baby girl yet, but he knows she is happy now because she saved his life. Abby was truly man’s best friend, always there by his side and always listened. I know she’s happy and playing fetch in heaven but she will be truly missed by everyone”.

    God Bless you, Abby! You’re my hero! I’m sooooooooo sorry to her daddy, Mark, for his loss. May God Bless you too.

  2. Aww poor baby. I hope her daddy Mark realizes that while she has left our world, she has gone somewhere better. She plays now at the Rainbow Bridge, she’ll never get sick, old, and she will never hurt anymore. God has a special place for animals like her and he will see her again. She will be waiting for him on the day they get reunited. My love and prayers to Mark and his family.

    • So beautifully said. We all are sad for Mark, he will miss her for the rest of his life. She is the reason he can. Love to all who see what a magnificient story this is.

    linda..i cried whin i read this….abby is a true hero…hope she didnt suffer…all dogs are heros…uncondional love..sorry to abbys parents…rip

  24. You must feel like your heart has been crushed. She would not leave till she knew you were safe and sound. That’s why they call them Man’s Best Friend. Their faithfulness and companionship is their BEST TRAIT. She did what she did out of pure unconditional LOVE. She is crying for joy because now she knows you are safe. Please don’t let her happy tears go to waste. Say a prayer for her every night and tell her she will always be in your heart. God Bless you Abby, your one HERO of a dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
