Mr Bailey is Running Free

Mr Bailey grew so weary from his struggles. 
The last few weeks we could tell he was dreaming of those days when he could run in the yard as his legs moved 
and he made little yips as he was sleeping.

Yesterday afternoon we held him and loved him
 and helped him on his journey to the Rainbow Bridge

No more struggles dear Bailey Man - 
now you are running free with Greta, 
your sweetheart Dory,
and all your friends at the Bridge

We love you forever Buddy,

Mom, Dad

Blogville Friends are The Best

Hello Friends
It's Mr Bailey here again today

Last week the FedEx truck pulled up our drive.
We were not expecting a delivery 
and were very surprised when he had a big box for us

Inside the box was an awesome dog bed,
A memory foam bed made just for old doggies like me

When Mom read the card her eyes got all leaky

Ruby at The Daily Pip had a giveaway

The giveaway was won by 
Misty & Lightning at The Chronicle of Woo's

The Woo's asked if I could have the bed
to rest my weary bones

Such a thoughtful and generous gift from 
Ruby & Rosie and Misty & Lightning

we can't thank you enough!

As you can see - 
I settled right in for a good nap and snoring session

Hazel thinks it is pretty comfy too!

Now yesterday was Father's Day 
and I want to give a shout out to my dad

I can no longer make it up the ramp to the bed 
so every night at bed time, 
Dad carries me in and lays me down 
on an orthopedic pad that is above Mom's pillow 
(good thing she is short BOL!)
 Then whatever time I decide I need to get up - 
usually around 5 am - 
Dad will get up and carry me outside so I can go potty. 
I love you Dad for everything you do for me.

And I have to hand it to Mom also, 
at some point in the middle of the night 
I want to change position 
and I need her help to get moved around and comfy again

 There has been a lot of tearful talk about something called quality of life as my strength continues to decline.

One day at a time

Remembering My Friend Bilbo

Hello Friends
Mr Bailey here today to remember a dear friend

I first met Bilbo during the 2014 Mayoral campaign
 when I was campaign manager 
for Murphy & Stanley 
and he was the campaign manager
 for his lovely sister Dory

One phone call turned into the 
Road to the Great Debate
and before we knew it

We were in Dory's Backyard 
trying to explain why we were there!

And from there a friendship was born

Being totally smitten with the lovely Dory

I turned to Bilbo 
to help me plan the pawfect Valentine Date

It was a night to remember thanks to Bilbo 
and I won the heart of the lovely Dory

my friend Bilbo
went to join his sister Dory at the Rainbow Bridge

Bilbo - a little guy with a big heart

I will miss you my friend
I know that Dory was happy to see you
Give her my love 
till we meet again

Your friend
Mr Bailey

Learning Weave Poles

Of all the agility obstacles

Weave poles can be the hardest to learn
because it is not something we dogs do naturally
like jumping and running. 

We start by having the poles spaced apart
so we can get used to running between them.
Slowly we move the poles in 
and eventually they will be in a straight line.

This was a few weeks ago
you can watch me going through the poles

Please ignore the end of the video - 
Dad was having trouble turning the camera off BOL!

Since then the poles have been moved closer and Mom hopes that soon we will be doing straight line weaves!
