Abbey was a very special service dog who made a great difference in the life of her service partner, helping her to maintain a vibrant and independent life, year in, year out.  With great poise and presence, and always whole-heartedly, Abbey stepped forward to lead her partner into each day, each place, each errand, each visit, and each adventure, in the process making a great many friends for them both.  Memories of her, especially in her harness, will always bring an admiring and warm smile to all who are grateful to have known her.  She is deeply missed.
