I Go to the Rainbow Bridge

It's been a very sad day around here. Today we decided to send Bailey to the Rainbow Bridge. She had a great long life (she just turned 13 earlier this month) but her body just gave out. Her last 9 years were with us. She was NTBHR #223 and our first BH adopted from NTBHR, back in 1998. She was 4 years old and an owner surrender from a couple who had just had a baby. She and the baby did not get along. How lucky we were that it did not matter to us how she got along with kids. It wasn't that she did not like kids, but more that she did not like being surprised and kids have a way of sneaking up on sleeping dogs to pet them. We didn't mind that, we just learned to be sure she was awake before we touched her. She came to us with full AKC papers and champion blood lines from a well respected breeder in Arizona (not that we could care), but she lived her life like a true champion. Her name was Fancy Rea, but that just didn't fit her, so we changed it to Bailey (she was a red & white and her red was so light it looked like Bailey's Irish Cream). Boy did we ever pick an appropriate name as she lived up to every bit of her Irish name. She was a true red headed Irish bitch. She was born to be a queen and never let anyone think otherwise. Let me tell you, she was very vocal about letting both 4 leggers and 2 leggers know she was the queen. She was the leader of our pack and will be greatly missed. Poor Roscoe is just lost right now. Of course the youngsters, Millie & Ellwood haven't got a clue. It will be a quiet night around here.....too quiet. Karen and furbabies Bailey (ATB 7/12/07), Roscoe, Millie & Elwood
