Goodbye my dear Bailey

Frenchy
January 16th, 2010, 07:06 PM
This morning , at 11:30 , I said goodbye to my dear Bailey :( his health had been declining for a while now , and the nose bleed he got Thursday morning scared me to death. I was bringing him to the vet this morning , thinking something could have been done to make him feel better. But to my surprise , he had internal bleeding and the vet told me , that it was time to let him go. So , I did. :( he went very peacefully.

Bailey is the reason why I started fostering. He made everything so easy , loved everyone , every dog and every cat. He was my first dog , he was 5-6 yr old when I adopted him in 2003 , one month after moving into my first house. He also gave me a crash course on pet health , with his allergies and being heartworm positive. He was always the best of dog , soooo patient and loving. Not a mean bone in his body. Even when he became blind and partially deaf , he never lost patience with the other younger dogs here.

Bailey , I miss you so much already , words can't describe how much it hurts. :(

you can now play with Sam again , and see your other friends Daisy and Chloe. I know they will welcome you with open paws , at rainbow bridge. :candle:

Frenchy
January 17th, 2010, 10:33 AM
Thanks to everyone for your kind words. :grouphug:

It is very strange how the house feels empty , Bailey wasn't the one to be hyper and all over the house , in the end , he mostly remained on the doggy beds in the living room but still , the house is strangely very quiet this morning. :(

I have to say , my vet made a huge difference on "my pain". She was also the one for Chloe , she is so compassionate , and knows all the right words ... when I told her I couldn't believe I didn't notice Bailey's belly , if I had known ... she told me : "that's MY job , your job was to bring Bailey in this morning."


when I went to the front desk , so I could pay before the euthanasia , the girls asked if I wanted to call someone to be there with me or to pick me up. They are all so very nice , it doesn't make it easier (or maybe it does) it's nice to see how compassionate they all are. :o

and then there's you guys , you are all such a wonderful support group :grouphug:

don't worry about me diandpat :o the other dogs don't know how to be sad for long .... they went on with their business , kept me busy , took care of me , even made me laugh out loud. :o

and yes , I did loose many dogs in a short time , but it is to be expected , to adopt older dogs , you don't have as many years with them but , they give back triple. I have been blessed , with so many good dogs in my life :dog: and I can't wait to be able to adopt another senior.

Frenchy, you are a brave woman and have an enormous heart. You have taken in so many dogs that were unloved and have given them something they would never have had, a chance.

Bailey left this world knowing he was loved beyond all measure.

I totally understand how you feel. Our pets are our family too! I have lost two pets and each time the staff at the vets office was so compassionate even to the extent of sending sympathy cards.

After the loss of my pets I couldn't think of having another one (and it was several years) but I have got another one and loving every minute.

You will always miss you precious friend but you have special memories and that is worth so much.
