Unhappy Goodbye my dear Bailey

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.

THe only thing wrong with pets is that no matter how old they are when you get them, they never live long enough. Frenchy I'm so sorry.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words.

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.

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