My Best Friend and Scrapbooking Buddy

My best scrapbooking buddy and friend, Bailey-Bailey, went to sleep July 22. Many of you have seen Bailey when he would help chose winners or help me out with Debby’s Dare Demos and even when he was just being to funny for words.

Bailey would sit at my feet under the computer desk while I worked and played on the computer. When I was scrapbooking he was always in the room sometimes on my lap.

My little dapple Dachshund was my heart. I miss him terrible. He was 7 years and 2 days old when suddenly a problem occurred with his back that was not fixable and created a lot of pain for my baby.

I’m glad he walked in life with me for those 7 years.

Below is a wonderful presentation in memory and in honor of my Bailey-Bailey.

Thanks for being the best dog and friend to me and our family, Bailey.

  6. I'm so very sorry for your loss. I have lost my best friend pal, too. May God ease your pain.

  7. Oh Debby, I'm so sorry to hear about Bailey. It's always so hard to lose a friend. I don't know if you have ever heard the story of a child explaining why dogs have shorter lives, but here's the shortened version. "Everybody is born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody and being nice, right?" The four-year-old continued, "Well, animals already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long". Someone shared this with me and it brought me some comfort. If you want to read the whole thing, I found it here:

  8. My parenst have a dash hound and I know about the back problems these dogs have- so sorry Debby.

  9. I'm so sorry for your loss! Bailey was indeed a lovely little pal. I love the pic of him checking out the christmas ornament. The lighting was fantastic! I'm sure you are greatful for all the wonderful pictures you have of him. I know he'll always be in your hearts.

  10. aww i cried. So hard losing a loved one and our pets are our family so they are very much close to our hearts.

  11. So sorry for your loss. I have two pomeranians that are my constant companions & make every day so much sweeter. My heart goes out to you and your sweet Bailey. (((HUGS)))
