It is said to get a dog is to open yourself to profound joy and, prospectively, to equally profound sadness. (Marjorie Garber). We met Bailey for the first time when he was 6 weeks old. He was the cutest puppy with spotted legs. We fell in love with him instantly. He brought pure joy to our lives just short of 11 years. His loss is devastating and we cannot believe he is gone. Words cannot express how much we miss him. Bailey, you were strong enough to wait for me and even wagged your tail one last time, as sick as you were. We had to be strong enough to let you go...you were suffering and such a beautiful soul should never have to go through what you went through. We did everything we could to try to help you and the doctors said it was up to you, but you could not fight it. You had too many things against you. It was the best thing for you; however the worst for us. Now we are the ones suffering because we no longer have you. We will forever miss our "pooch pooch". So many memories of your antics will live with us forever. We think about you every single day and not a day has gone by where we have not cried. Your 11th birthday was 4 days after you went to Rainbow Bridge, that was so hard. Last year, you were enjoying your piece of cupcake...I never imagined less than a year later you would be gone. So many things remind us of you...I will miss you in the summer..how you loved the summer- laying by the door or on the deck in the sun and rolling in the grass. Everything seems empty without you Bailey. We love you, we miss you and we will never, ever forget you. If love could have saved you, you would have been cured in seconds. Rest in Peace my love...until we meet again. Bailey 01/23/00 - 01/19/11. Gone from our sights, buried in our hearts for eternity.|

2/28/11- the days are flying by without you Bailey. Had my first dream about you yesterday. Went into the house and you were sitting there facing the dining room. I came up behind you and just hugged you and you kept looking up at me. I cant believe its been almost 6 weeks since I've hugged you and seen your beautiful face. I wish I hugged and kissed you once more before I left. Missing you still...xoxo
