Goodnight Sweet Bailey

My baby girl could fly.

Bailey flunked out of racing because she never broke her maidens. That meant she retired young and healthy. She was our first greyhound and she came to us in September of 2002, just past her 2nd birthday. A handful of times we were able to let her go coursing and she loved it. She was so fast and beautiful when she ran.

She wasn't an only dog for long. She didn't have any SA, but she seemed sad and always perked up when we took her to a meet and greet. So, in January of 2003 we got her a big brother, Mr. Murphy. He was her soul-mate and her rock. When she was with him all was right in her world.

She got to travel lots and lots with us, going to all sorts of greyhound events.

She had a good friend in our little feral baby kitteh Speck. He only lived 9 months as he had some type of inborn error of metabolism. They are together again now.

She fought a good fight against fibrosarcoma, living 2 months post splenectomy.

I am so sorry

Jan with precious pups Emmy (Stormin J Flag) and Simon (Nitro Si). Missing my angels: Bailey Buffetbobleclair 11/11/98-17/12/09; Ben Task Rapid Wave 5/5/02-2/11/15; Brooke Glo's Destroyer 7/09/06-21/06/16 and Katie Crazykatiebug 12/11/06 -21/08/21. My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

I'm so sorry to read this - she was such a beautiful girl, and a wonderful presence at the events. Many hugs to you, Sean and the kids - gentle scritches for Murphy.

My sympathies. The beach picture brings tears to my eyes. Just remember when the grief really hits hard that you will be together again. You didn't say goodbye... more like catch up with you later!
