"Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace" Milan Kundera
On the 3rd of September we had to say goodbye to Bailey, It was far too soon and we weren't ready but sometimes that is the way of Goodbyes.....................they break your heart.
We adopted Bailey from Dumfries and Galloway Rescue Centre almost five years ago. She was the smallest basset we had ever seen, indeed we have still not met a basset so small.
Strange that such a small dog can leave the biggest hole.
Bailey did have some of the basset traits that had led to her coming in to rescue - according to her previous owner she 'didn't do a thing she was told'. Whilst it was true she could be stubborn and wilful she was also, without a doubt, the most fun loving wee dog. She was playful, affectionate and adorable.
Make no mistake Bailey knew she was adorable and responded to the inevitable 'oohs and aahs' of the people she met. She adored children and could be the most gentle of dogs in their company.
We haven't posted on our blog for the longest time but it somehow felt right that there should be a post on here to say Goodbye to Bailey.
RIP sweetheart xxx
