Remembering Mr Bailey - His Younger Years

If you have been lucky enough to have a pet with with you for 14 plus years you have a lot of memories to cherish. When I was looking through older photos, I realized that Bailey was almost 10 when we started the blog. 

So today I want to celebrate Bailey's life 
by sharing some memories from his younger years.

First day at the PugRanch.

I wasn't chewing on your slipper - honest!

Missing you Bailey Man

We will share more memories of our boy

  1. they say pugs are there to bring joy to this world... and that#s what your Bailey did ... if we saw his smile we had to smile back, no matter what... he was a magic pup... he made the people smile... and that's a wonderful thing... our world needs lots of smiles...

  2. I can imagine how much you must miss him. I'm sure nothing quite feels the same without him. They sure leave a hole in our lives when we lose them.

  3. He was such a sweet little boy. That last picture is priceless!

    My angel Jade was with me over 14 years - so yes, plenty of cherished moments! These are very precious and what a joy to mark life well-lived!!! YAM xx

  5. What a hamdsome brother hazel. Im so sorry about your brother and im sure you miss him. We all liked him so much.
    The pics made us smile


  6. What beautiful memories. One of my regrets with Bailey is I lost many of his early digital photos when my computer crashed and they couldn't retire the files.

  7. OMD, seeing young Bailey and Hazel together is too sweet! And that double head tilt! Thank you for sharing such wonderful memories.

  8. Thanks for sharing such sweet memories of your beautiful boy Bailey.

  9. Memories sure are good. So sad losing our furry babies

  10. Oh my, Mr. Bailey was such an adorable puppy! He kinda reminds me of my cousin Louie! You have such wonderful memories of him...and so many...and we know you cherish each one.

  11. They made us smile...What a sweet little guy!!

  12. What great photos! We didn't realize how much his muzzle had changed over the years.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  13. You were the most adorable youngster, Bailey. How we miss you♥

  14. OMD, those are the bestest pictures EVERS!!! I especially love the one with the slipper, and snoozin' with Dad, and the last one! Smiles all around!

  15. So many sweet memories. We've found that the other dogs seem to have taken on some of Daisy's traits....always makes us smile. Such great photos.

  16. Those are such precious photos! That double head-tilt one is over the TOP adorable!!!!!

  17. Isn't it just so comforting to have all those wonderful memories, albeit maybe a little hard to look at them right now. Mr. Bailey was such a cute little one. We are surprised at how dark his muzzle was. And it looks like he always enjoyed a comfy spot to rest:0

  26. Mr. Bailey...just as we expected you were the Patriarch of the Pug Ranch...a trait you rightly learned from all the precious huggy puggies who came before you.
    We loved this look back into your younger years and I know you mom is so happy she has these wonderful memories of you and your siblings.
    God speed to you my friend until we meet again.
    Madi your bfff
