I knew Deep down what day it was yesterday, I just couldn't bring myself to think about it.* :'(* This morning I was sitting here going through pictures and Maggie JUMPS up on me and starts whining.* Maggie knows NOT to jump on people.* All out dogs have learned* not to jump because of my mom having MS.* She really shocked me I think she knew I was thinking about her mommy.* She is now sitting here right next to me and wont move.* Dakota has left the room and Maggie wont go play with her.
I got Bailey for an EARLY Christmas present from my mom.* I wanted a lab puppy really bad.*
At the time I was going through a hard time changing schools.* I had gone to a private school for 5 years where I was the oldest and the whole school was never more than 60 kids.* I wanted a dog of my own that I did not have to share with my brother and that could be MY friend.
We had a golden retriever at the time, her name was Lindsay.* It had been 6 years since we lost Mocha our second chocolate lab had died of someone poisining her from the other side of the fence.
When we started looking for a breeder we called the vet in the next town over since hes really big on labs.* He told us we were crazy for wanting a Chocolate lab and we would be in for a world of trouble.* My mom asked me if I wanted another color and um NO I didn't!* So we found Baileys breeder through the Central Wyoming Kennel Club.* Right after finding a puppy my mom fell and broke her back and couldn't drive down to get the puppy.* Her breeder drove all the way to Casper to bring her to my mom.* My mom wasn't suppost to drive but went to meet the breeder to pick the puppy up.* I was in school and didn't know this was taking place.* I didn't think we were getting the puppy till next weekend.* So that afternoon I called my mom to see how she was and talk to her.* When I called I heard this crying.* I asked if she was babysitting Terry's foster kids.* She says no.* So I keep listening and I hear more crying and then puppy noises.* I freaked out!* I was shocked, EXCITED, and things words can not explain.* I wanted to go home SOO bad!* I had to wait 3 more hours before I could go home. 3 HOURS!!!!!!!!* *The pain of waitting was bad!* When 230 came and that bell rang I didn't stop at my locker and get my stuff or put my books away I went to the car to see my puppy!* Mom had wrapped her in a little green blanket and had her sitting in the front seat!
She was a great girl.* She wasn't big on playing with a ball or running around.* She wanted to be with her mommy.* When summer time came and we filled up the swimming pool she wouldn't let ANY of the other dogs in it.* That was HER pool and NO ONE was going to take it away from her* lol.
Every morning after I had gotten up and came to the living room she would thump her tail a few times and then get up and come put her head in my lap.* We would talk and kiss and love on eachother for a while first thing EVERY morning.
The night when we noticed she was having trouble walking no vet would see her.* The next night she couldn't walk at all.* I went to bed that night knowing I needed to find a way to get her to a vet in the morning.* As soon as I got into bed and Bailey couldn't see me she cried and cried for me.* I spent the night on the livingroom floor holding her as close to me as I could.*
3 days after Christmas my sweet girl went to be with the lord.
Bailey was my princess and always will be!* She was mom to Annie who we had to put down in May, and Maggie who is still here with us!.
Bailey and Maggie.
