03/31/17 - Well hello my sweet Bailey May...I'm sorry it's been so long. We still think of you often and so wish that you were here. Jett is all grown up now, going to be "3" years old in a few weeks! You would have made such an awesome "big" sister to him. As you can see, the training is ongoing with hopes that some day he'll be an official Therapy Dog. I know you would have been great, had you been given the chance. Miss Keema is slowly aging, but still independent as can be and Queen of the house! Just not sure how much longer she'll be with us... I do need to update the photos for them. I think I'll go see Grammy for lunch today, she still talks about you and how much she misses you too! Love you Miss Bailey.|
Love, Momma <3
5/27/15 - Morning Sweetie. I can't believe it will be 2 yrs since you're passing soon. Katie graduated on Saturday from UNH, we're very proud of her accomplishments. Wish you could be here to give her big kisses!! Momma is doing better, but still dealing with belly issues. It's a very slow process, and you know me, I'm not very patient!! As you can see, Jett is growing like a weed...He went on his first hike with Katie yesterday at Gunstock, just like you and I did. He liked it too!! Dad had to put the a/c in last night as it's in the 80's and humid. That will keep us all cool like he did for you, except you had more fur, but Jett is black which makes him get hot as well. I'm trying to load another picture of Jett that shows how big he is..I'll keep trying.
4/27/15 - Bailey it's Momma. I'm starting to feel better and want to continue to do so. It's been a tough 12 mos, one health problem after another, and then diagnosed with cancer. I hope "he's" all done testing my strengths. I wish you could have been here for me to hug as I know you would have made me feel better. Jett is trying, he stays pretty close to me when I'm home. He officially turned "1" last Tuesday!! Dad got him a cake and I got him a hat & toy, but didn't like the hat & ruined the toy in about 10 mins. I'll have to upload a picture of him on his special day, he's getting big. But definitely needs some more training, so hope to do something with him soon. We also just introduced him to your favorite food.....carrots!!! He wasn't too sure about them at first, but I think he's going to like them too. We all still think of you often and shed tears. You were the best buddy ever, you always had my back!! I've started taking Jett for short walks when the weather is good and think about all the trips you and I made thru the development. We miss you lots Bailey and hope that you miss us too. Love, Momma <3
2/11/15 - Hi Bailey, It's now a new year and still going thru treatments. The light at the end of the tunnel is shining a little brighter as I just finished my 2nd hurdle (radiation). The first hurdle (chemo)was finished on Nov 26th, the day before Thanksgiving. I still have one more treatment to finish which will end in August. We all still think of you everyday and get emotional, especially when we look at Jett. As you can see, I have uploaded some more pictures of your brother and one of Miss Keema too!! Your brother is getting so big and Keema is slowing down as she will be 14 yrs old in July. She still tries to let Jett know she doesn't want to play, but of course he just doesn't get it. I'm sure you remember those days...we hope he'll learn eventually. Unfortunately, your toys are taking a beating...he's a major chewer!! Oh well, we love him anyway. Bailey you will always be my baby. Know that we will always love you and will always remain close to our hearts. Love, Momma
11/19/14 - Bailey I'm sorry I haven't posted anything for a long time, but unfortunately Momma has been sick with treatments for "cancer". You knew that already I'm sure, as we know you're always watching from above. I was diagnosed back on June 18th, except mine was detected much earlier and was given a much better chance to beat this horrible disease than you were. Who would have know that 1 yr & 6 days to the day we lost you, that I would be facing the same battle. I wish you would have had the same chance as I've been given. We think about you everyday and still get emotional when we talk about you. Jett is growing like crazy, I need to upload some recent pictures of him. He just finished his 1st beginner's obedience class and did good, but needs more practice just like you did. :) We miss you more than ever. Love, Momma
6/25/14 - Bailey we know that you're watching...and would like to introduce you to your new baby brother "Jett". He was born on April 21st and arrived here on June 14th, just in time for father's day. He's just as smart & cute as you were. I know that you would have enjoyed him so much if you were still here with us. He would love to have you here to play with too as he misses his brother & sisters. He is certainly enjoying all your toys, babies & balls & seems to like the car rides too!! I will be sure to add some of his pictures here to be with you.
Luv you, Momma, Daddy & Katie
Bailey, we can't believe it has been one year today since your passing. The pain of losing you is as strong today as it was a year ago. We love & miss you so much...you'll remain in our hearts forever.
Luv, Momma, Daddy & Katie
Bailey's favorite toys were her "babies" and tennis balls, which she had lots of. She always loved going for car rides with all of us, as well as boat rides. Of course, her favorite activity was... swimming!!! Bailey kept me in shape with our daily walks through the neighborhood. Those walks are so lonely now without you. :(
Bailey, I can't describe how much our hearts are aching for you. We miss all the love & affection you gave us everyday. Please know that our lives are forever changed and look forward to the day when we meet again. Until then, please keep all those that are with you now as happy as you always made us.
Rest in peace our precious angel.
We love you... Momma, Daddy & Katie <3
PRECIOUS LITTLE FRIEND
It's time to rest your weary head
I know your time has come.
So goodbye my little friend.
I can't believe you're gone.
I wouldn't trade the time we had
Please open your gates and call St. Francis to come and escort this beloved companion across the Rainbow Bridge. Assign her to a place of honor for she has been a faithful servant and has always done her best to please me.
Bless the hands that send her to you, for they are doing so in love and compassion, freeing her from pain and suffering. Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss. Help me to remember the details of her life with the love she has shown me. And grant me the courage to honor her by sharing those memories with others.
Let her remember me as well and let her know that I will always love her. And when it's our time to pass over into your paradise, please allow her to accompany those who will bring me home.
Thank you Lord, for the gift of her companionship and for the time we've had together. And thank you, Lord, for granting me the strength to give her to you now.
