perfect word! my sister's dog is abhorable with the way she lunges and flies at my face and barks in a high pitched, glass breaking squeal of a bark, but I have to pretend I love her...my sister worships her

Sometimes we read more into a word as the day goes on ... abhorrible ... homonym to abhorable! So good I'll be using it! Great originality!
