Hailee passed away October 27, 2009 from kidney failure. She wasn't with us very long, but the time she was with us was so very special. We feel like there is a hole in our hearts, it's so painful right now. I miss her so much and wish I could just hold her one more time. I hope she knows how loved she was. I feel like we were so lucky to have had her in our lives. Even if it wasn't for a very long time. She was the kindest, sweetest, most gentle girl you'd ever meet. Oh my God I just miss her so bad. Rest now baby girl. All your pain is gone now. Mommy loves you.

ONE BY ONE ...
One by One, they pass by my cage,
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way.
Way past her time, she can't run and play.
Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way.
A little old lady, arthritic and sore,
It seems I am not wanted anymore.
I once had a home, I once had a bed,
A place that was warm, and where I was fed.
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail.
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong,
I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.
Whatever excuse they made in their head,
Can't justify how they left me for dead.
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day,
The younger dogs get adopted away.
When I had almost come to the end of my rope,
You saw my face, and I finally had hope.
You saw thru the grey, and the legs bent with age,
And felt I still had life beyond this cage.
You took me home, gave me food and a bed,
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head.
We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low,
You love me so dearly, you want me to know.
I may have lived most of my life with another,
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger.
And I promise to return all the love I can give,
To you, my dear person, as long as I live.
I may be with you for a week, or for years,
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave,
I know you will cry and your heart ... it will grieve.
And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new,
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you.
And I will brag to all who will hear,
Of the person who made my last days so dear.

This is really bad. Daddy is in China until Monday. Mom got home from the shelter and fed us, then took a shower. While she was in there, we all heard this noise and started barking. Mom thought it was the sprinklers turning on. When she got out of the shower, water was pouring in from the ceiling!!! She ran upstairs, completely nakey, and found what it was. The toilet up there, the hose came off the wall and was FURIOUSLY spraying water everywhere!!! That bathroom and the billiard room was really flooded! The billiard room is wood floor that Daddy put in by himself. He's not gonna be happy.
So, Mom turned off the valve and got on the computer to call some damage people. While we waited for them,. Mom tried to get as much water up as she could with her hoover. The guys came, and now there are big fans and noisy things all over the place and I'm scared!
Mom says we have to sleep upstairs in a spare room tonight. It's really loud in here. Water was dripping from the ceilings in the master bathroom and the kitchen. Mom is really "tweaked", she says.
At least she gave us some boneys to chew on to take our minds off of it.
