Bailey in 2000 at Warner Park at her prime.
Dear sweet girl:
Heaven will have lots of sunshine for lay-lay sun-sun, plenty of trails to explore just like you used to do for miles with Daddy, a swimming hole as shady and lovely as your favorite spot at the park, a lush green meadow to romp in, and treats for days.
You’ll be able to chase your tail again like a whirling dervish and play fetch and there will be a never ending supply of fresh tennis balls. You’ll no longer struggle to walk or hurt or be unable to jump or play.
We love you so much sweet girl.
Thank you for being with us through so many seasons of our life and our marriage over the past 13 years. You were our first baby. You were our first in-common experience with caring for and loving another being with all our hearts. I never knew it would be this difficult to let you go.
Today is a beautiful day and you spent your last seconds of life on the front porch in the spring sun.
We will never, ever forget you and your special place in our family.
In honor of our Bailey, please consider adopting a pet from your local shelter. We adopted Bailey in December 1997 from the Nashville Humane Association. She has given us a lifetime of love in 13 years.
