My sweet girl Bailey died on Wednesday, January 30th. I wasn’t going to post anything because it’s soooo hard to bear but then I thought, you know . . . that’s not fair. Everyone deserves to be remembered and honored and SHE is most definitely worth a small paragraph and mention on Facebook (and in my opinion, much more.)
This little girl was only 2 when she passed. We rescued her when she was 1 year old, and we have loved and adored her for the full year that she was with us. It’s unbearable to think she’s gone after only being with us for just a short time.
I’m unsure of the horrors that she endured before she came to us, but I can say with all certainty that she had all the love, compassion and happiness that any dog could have possibly have during the time that she spent with us.
She was so sweet and so loving; giving kisses like no other dog I’ve ever known. I miss her so much and I long for those sweet kisses that only she could give. Even my sweet Jake, who I venerated, was not as affectionate as Bailey in the sense of kisses and just wanting to be by your side, sleeping with you, and always wanting to be next to you in any situation. She was just a puppy and always just wanted to play and love on you and she was just SO GOOD.
A good dog at heart but damaged by circumstances. She is soooo sorely missed by me and BJ that it really hurts. All I can say is I’m sorry to her. I’m sorry for what she endured before she came to us and I’m sorry I couldn’t protect her from what happened in the end.
She used to do this crazy thing with her mouth like a clicking noise that I made fun of because it was so funny and cute. I called her “Chompers” (from the movie “Something About Mary” and also from something I saw on an episode of South Park “Chomp chomp ba chewy chomp!”) because of it. All I can say is “I’m so sorry, my baby girl, my Bailey, my ‘Chompers’. We love you so much and we miss your love, your playfulness and your sweetness. We love you deeply and we thank you for the time we’ve spent together We will never forget you and are so thankful that you came into our lives, no matter how briefly.”
