I have had dogs all my life starting at the age of 5. There is just something about having a dog in your life. Dogs are unconditional. They are the most loving and forgiving creatures on this Earth. Dogs are the ultimate companion. They want to be wherever you are; including the bathroom! LOL I don’t think my life would be complete without a dog in it.
Meet Bailey Grace
Bailey is my 9, almost 10 year old English Lab. Bailey came into my life when my dear friend became ill and could not care for her. I was supposed to look after her for about 2 months. That was 5 years ago! My friend has recovered from her illness, but needed to move out of state and we thought it was best that Bailey stay with me.
This picture was taken about 2 weeks after Bailey came to stay with us. We were watching Sunday football and out of the blue she jumped up on the couch and snuggled with me. I knew at that point that she felt secure.
Bailey became part of the family during my Golden’s last years of life (Rusty pictured on the left). I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her when he passed away. It was very sudden, so I didn’t have time to prepare myself. Whether she knows it or not, she was an integral part of my grieving process.
And yes, even when she gets into the Christmas stockings, I still love her. Doesn’t she look guilty here? LOL
So getting back to “A Human’s Prayer to a Dog”: Thank you Bailey for coming into my life and letting me care for you. Thank you for all the joy you bring to me. If you want to see more of Bailey, she has an instagram page called: thebaileyblog.
