Remembering My Friend Bilbo

Hello Friends
Mr Bailey here today to remember a dear friend

I first met Bilbo during the 2014 Mayoral campaign
 when I was campaign manager 
for Murphy & Stanley 
and he was the campaign manager
 for his lovely sister Dory

One phone call turned into the 
Road to the Great Debate
and before we knew it

We were in Dory's Backyard 
trying to explain why we were there!

And from there a friendship was born

Being totally smitten with the lovely Dory

I turned to Bilbo 
to help me plan the pawfect Valentine Date

It was a night to remember thanks to Bilbo 
and I won the heart of the lovely Dory

my friend Bilbo
went to join his sister Dory at the Rainbow Bridge

Bilbo - a little guy with a big heart

I will miss you my friend
I know that Dory was happy to see you
Give her my love 
till we meet again

Your friend
Mr Bailey

Lee has been so involved with my health that this was a real shock to read.
We pray Mr Bailey is doing well. Thanks for asking how Sweet William was. Will had major blood work done yesterday and a ophthalmology examine.  Vitiligo can have a great effect on his eyes.
After the blood work comes back a core punch biopsy will be done.  Less than 2% of dogs are affected with this. Blood might be able to give us a reason for this and the biopsy to come will tell us the degree of progressiveness.
Thanks for being a dear friend

This is truly the most heartbreaking part of being a pet blogger. We all fall so in love with our dog and cat friends that it hurts so bad when we have to say good-bye to them. I love Bilbo and know he is happy and running around with Dory and all of our other friends until we can see them again. ♥
