Abide is a complex word that means variously “lives in,” “goes in accord with,” and “co-exists in harmony with.” I named my cat, the Dude, after the movie The Big Lebowski. It is a 1998 movie starring Jeff Bridges (The Dude), John Goodman, Phillips Seymour Hoffman, Sam Elliott and many more.
Here is a link of the last part of movie if you want to take a couple of minutes to see it. There are many more links out there of videos about the movie if you care to look around on YouTube.
Also above in the photo is my Dude after I brushed him relaxing on the screen room table in the shadows. My reflection of course with the camera to the left.
Have you seen the movie The Big Lebowski?
