Blogville Friends are The Best

Hello Friends
It's Mr Bailey here again today

Last week the FedEx truck pulled up our drive.
We were not expecting a delivery 
and were very surprised when he had a big box for us

Inside the box was an awesome dog bed,
A memory foam bed made just for old doggies like me

When Mom read the card her eyes got all leaky

Ruby at The Daily Pip had a giveaway

The giveaway was won by 
Misty & Lightning at The Chronicle of Woo's

The Woo's asked if I could have the bed
to rest my weary bones

Such a thoughtful and generous gift from 
Ruby & Rosie and Misty & Lightning

we can't thank you enough!

As you can see - 
I settled right in for a good nap and snoring session

Hazel thinks it is pretty comfy too!

Now yesterday was Father's Day 
and I want to give a shout out to my dad

I can no longer make it up the ramp to the bed 
so every night at bed time, 
Dad carries me in and lays me down 
on an orthopedic pad that is above Mom's pillow 
(good thing she is short BOL!)
 Then whatever time I decide I need to get up - 
usually around 5 am - 
Dad will get up and carry me outside so I can go potty. 
I love you Dad for everything you do for me.

And I have to hand it to Mom also, 
at some point in the middle of the night 
I want to change position 
and I need her help to get moved around and comfy again

 There has been a lot of tearful talk about something called quality of life as my strength continues to decline.

One day at a time

We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  13. this made MY eyes leaky!! That was the sweetest ever!! DakotasDen

  14. That was such a lovely gesture. Bentley has that bed loves it too. Pierre tries to steal it all the time. I love you, Mr. Bailey ❤️❤️

  15. Awww, that is so incredibly sweet. Blogville is the best for pets and their uprights! Looks like a really comfy bed. Happy ūüí§ little man.

  16. What a wonderful and thoughtful gift from some special friends.

  17. That was a wonderful gift and you look very happy in it. You're parents are taking excellent care of you. We are praying that you have weeks and months together.

  18. What a fantabulous gift Mr. Bailey, and what wonderful pawrents you have!

  19. That was so sweet! And that bed looks just perfect for you!

  20. What a sweet thing for the Woos to share their prize with you. It is important to be comfortable as we grow older. I've had to use a two step stool to get on and off the bed the last few years. I'm too heavy for her to lift. Enjoy your new bed!

  21. Misti and lightning are the sweetest! Hang in there sweet one. We are praying for you and your pawrents. My momma just went through the "quality of life" discussion with her Angel Mollie and its so hard! Stay comfy my friend and give your pawrents an extra kiss or two when you can!

    Puppy Growls,

  22. That is one of the sweetest things ever! Mr. Bailey you and your Mom and Dad will know when the time is right to say goodbye.
    Marty's Mom

  23. It makes me so happy that Mr. Bailey was able to enjoy the bed for a little while. These pictures made me cry tears of sadness and joy.

    I was away last week and clearly missed so much ....xoxox
