Mr Bailey is Running Free

Mr Bailey grew so weary from his struggles. 
The last few weeks we could tell he was dreaming of those days when he could run in the yard as his legs moved 
and he made little yips as he was sleeping.

Yesterday afternoon we held him and loved him
 and helped him on his journey to the Rainbow Bridge

No more struggles dear Bailey Man - 
now you are running free with Greta, 
your sweetheart Dory,
and all your friends at the Bridge

We love you forever Buddy,

Mom, Dad
Hazel & Mabel

  29. Oh no! We're so sad for you to lose good old Mr. Bailey! Sending lots of hugs and POTP to you all! But we are well familiar with that "look" when an old doggie tells you the time has come. You just know it, and it breaks your heart, but you have to do the right thing. I'm sure he's all happy and pain free now. I hope he says hi to Joey dog, Miss Ginger and Old Charisma.

Bailey is young and running free again. You gave him a wonderful gift. And he is with his beloved little sister again. We will pray for those he left behind.

  33. Oh noes. I am so sorry to hear this. Butts, as you said, Mr. Bailey is free of pain, and is running and chasin' all kinds of critters and puppers now.

  43. I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Bailey. I loved reading your post from today with all the memories. He had such a wonderful and full life with you and all his fur siblings over the years. He knew he was loved and he will return the love by watching over you all. Sending much support and love across the miles.

  44. Seeing your comment over on our blog with only two pug names our hearts sunk. I am sorry I am so late in finding out as I have not been on the computer much.
    Bailey ~ May the blessing of the rain be on you—the soft sweet rain.
    May it fall upon your spirit
    so that all the little flowers may spring up,
    and shed their sweetness on the air.
    May the blessing of the great rains be on you,
    may they beat upon your spirit
    and wash it fair and clean,
    and leave there many a shining pool
    where the blue of heaven shines,
    and sometimes a star.
    I will look for your star Bailey my friend.
    Sweet William The Scot

  46. We’ve been so busy in Boston I haven’t been staying up to date. Gosh I hate reading this. What a sweet boy. I hope he’s in heaven playing. I lost a dog this fall and it was so much. I miss her every day.
