Goodbye my sweet Bailey

So, I haven't posted about Bailey's passing because I couldn't really bring myself to really acknowledge it until now.

Last Wed. Bailey took a turn for the worst and her body just failed her. She had just turned 15, so I am not surprised really. I didn't expect her to last much longer.

Tuesday night she was fine until about 10pm. I actually posted a picture of her and Carrot together, she ate all her dinner and seemed fine. Around 10 she wasn't able to walk well, I figured she was hurting (bad hips) and I got her into the bedroom. She seemed weak and I tried to give her water..nothing, I tried to give her chicken, wouldn't take it. I thought maybe she just wasn't feeling well...I mean she's old, sometimes they don't feel well.

Anyways, Wed. morning she took a turn for the worst, she pooped/pee'd blood everywhere and she wouldn't move and I noticed her eyes were not clear anymore. We rushed her to the animal shelter (I volunteer there, I trust them and non of the other vets in the area would see her right away, plus, I knew) We get there and we use one of the back rooms and they give her the shot. She was almost there and after the shot it was in a matter of seconds and she was gone.

I miss her, I will always miss her. I got her when she was 6 months old and she's been with me through so much. Four kids, marriage, divorce and marriage again, moved out of the states with me and then back to the states with me. She was an island dog, she was a protector (she did wonderfully in Sch. when she was younger, it was just a hobby for us though, no actual competing) friend and my heart dog. I pick up her ashes Friday, I'm going to be a mess.

Goodbye my sweet girl, forever in my heart and forever missed.

So sad to hear that Bailey has passed. It sounds like she was an amazing dog and a great friend to have. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Thank you everyone. She did lead an eventful life, I even considered writing some short stories about them. Like when she met a pelican for the first time and her first time on the beach where she dug up a land crab. (it did not end badly thankfully)
