All in the Family


Labrador Retriever

(full name) Abby Mechelle Coda Helm: This sweet but mischievous dog was my darling. Abby wasn't as athletic as Sam, but she was definitely smarter than him. We got our first dog, Sam, from the same litter that we got Abby. Their dad, Buddy, actually lives next door. Abby looked exactly like Buddy. My friend had Abby before I did, but she had to give her to us because her dad didn't like Abby. (At that time she was named Coda.) But as soon as Abby and Sam met again, they were instantly best friends! In Feburary of 2006, we had to give Abby and Sam their yearly shots. It turns out that Abby was actually allergic to the shots. She had a reaction that was like she was bleeding inside herself! So, we rushed her to the Animal Emergency Clinic (AEC) and spent hours in the lobby. We didn't know if Abby would live or die. My mom came back from where Abby was being kept with bad news. The vet told her that no dog they had ever had lived through this. But there was hope. The other owners waited an hour before they loaded up their dogs to take them to the AEC. We only waited five minutes. So Abby could possibly survive. But that was unlikely. So the doctors kept Abby for a bit and things started to look up. Abby was wagging her tail when we saw her, like she was meeting an old friend again. Soon we took her home. For the years after that, Abby got grey hairs and her life span was cut in half. But she was still my sweet, smart Abby. Her life met it's end in the spring of 2011, but I will always cherish the times I've spent with her.I will always know that Abby had a good life. I love you, Abby! :)

My friends dog is highly allergic to distemper shots and almost died! Now they give him Benadryl before shots! So, you may want to ask the vet about this the next time they get shots!!!!! BEEE SAFE AND HAPPY!!!!
