Memories of Bailey May
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

04/26/16 - Hello Miss Bailey May... I can't believe we're coming up on 3 yrs since your passing. I compare Jett to you all the time. He's a good boy, but very strong headed!! He just had a birthday last week...he's 2!! I'm taking him to a trainer, as he has some bad habits as well as lots of energy (just like you). He's very smart too. I wish it was so that you could be here to play with him. :( We all still think of you often & miss you terribly. I do like having you & Pepper at home, where we can feel your love. Keema continues to be the "Queen" of the house, she lets Jett know that every once in awhile. I'll have to post some more pics. We love you more than ever. <3

Love, Momma

10/9/15 - Hi Bailey, I know it's been a long time since I've written to you... It's now Fall & the leaves are changing and you know that means colder weather is upon us soon. Katie is doing very well in Mass at her new job. We don't see much of her now, cuz she's got a busy schedule. Although, she's made new friends and having some fun when she can! Mr Jett is still the same, everything in the mouth. He did spend some time in the kennel a few wks ago while we were on vacation. They said he was a good boy (probably because he was entertained by the other dogs & no sticks to eat in their yard). Miss Keema is off her medicine and doing well so far, but she's showing signs of her age...14 yrs old now!!! Dr says she's doing well. We all still miss you so much, I hope you miss us too. You now have Timber & Rusty to look after, I'm sure you're taking good care of them. We were able to go in the boat a few times this summer, but I don't think Jett is overly crazy about swimming (like you were). I need to post some new pics. We love you to the moon & back!!

Love, Momma

7/2/15 - Hi Bailey, It's officially summer! Although we have had a lot of rain & cool weather, which you would have enjoyed I know. Katie moved to Massachusetts last Sat to her new apt. She starts her new job on Monday....we all miss her very much. She's had a lot to deal with the last few weeks, between the move, new job and the breakup with Zach. He decided that he wasn't able to keep Katie happy with their new adventures ahead & needed to do some growing up. So poor Katie was devastated, but has done well to get through this latest upset and try to focus on herself. She mentions that she still misses you as we all do... Hope to go for our first boat ride this weekend and will definitely be thinking of you!! Jett & Keema are doing good except Keema got attacked by something in the woods, so for right now she is staying in, which as you know, she's not too happy about. I'll have to post some new pics. We love you Bailey.

Love, Momma

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.
We love & miss you very much. Momma

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

8/5/14 - Bailey as you can see we have added some pictures of your little brother Jett....he's grown a lot since these were taken, so will be putting up some more recent ones. But at least you have a chance to see him. He's got lots of energy just like you had and lots of love to give too!! Wish you were here to enjoy him and to be that "big" sister that he needs to learn life's lessons & of course for company. As you know, Keema still rules, but Jett hasn't quite learned that yet. We hope to introduce him to your favorite activity of a boat ride with lots of swimming before the summer is over. We miss you so much! 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

To our Bailey May...

It's time to rest your weary head
One last time.
And though I know it's time to say goodbye,
It's breaking my heart in two.
I just hope you know
How much I love you so,
Precious Little Friend

I know your time has come.
So thank you for the love you freely gave.
Oh, how you loved.
I try to think of how it used to be,
Back when you still could see.
How you bounced and played,
And watched the squirrels all day,
Precious Little Friend

So goodbye my little friend.
I'll stay beside you 'til the end.
I'll see it through,
Just like you stayed right by my side
Every day of your sweet little life.
I will hold you close,
And whisper in your ear,
My Precious Little Friend

I can't believe you're gone.
I look for you all day long
And try to be strong.
Oh, what I'd give to touch your sweet soft fur,
And hold you just one more time.
But, it cannot be.
I have to set you free.
Precious Little Friend.

I wouldn't trade the time we had
for anything.
Goodbye, my little friend.

Love, Momma

Dear Lord,

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.
