Bailey’s Way

October 3, 2012  

Even in her older years, Bailey continues to teach rescue dogs the ropes

By Christina Mays

I have a fabulous elderbull named Bailey. We have had Bailey since she was 10 weeks old. She has seen a lot of life in these last 11+ years. She has seen rescue dogs come and go. She has helped me school many, many rescue dogs by showing them what good canine citizens act like. In fact, she is just as responsible for the many adoptions as we are!

She has walked in the March of Dimes 10 years in a row. This year was the first year that she didn’t go – her arthritis was just too much for her to walk that far. She is crotchety, old, farty, a massive bed hog, and typically has breath that would drop a bull at 10 paces, but I love her dearly and wouldn’t trade her for gold. She is one of the most sweet and tolerant fur-kids. She knows so many tricks and is the smartest of the bunch. In fact, she knows the best trick of all. She can get me to get up and get her a cookie while she steals my chair! She has been my friend and fur-kid for a long time, and I hope she stays with me for a long time.

    I hope she’s with you for a long time too. Bailey sounds like a sweet, smart and loving dog, a pibble through & through. Thanks for giving her the home she so deserves.
