Goodbye My Good Girl

My friend of 16 years, you are gone from this earth but still live in my broken heart.

I made the sad decision to say goodbye just two days ago and yet it feels like I've been crying a much longer time. I know you weren't the same happy girl you used to be, but my guilt still pierces my heart. I hope you don't hate me for the decision I made, I couldn't bear to see you this way.

You were always there for us through moves, new pets and our four boys. I hope you know that we always loved you, our first baby, even through all the rushing around and craziness of raising a large family.

Thank you for your bravery and for always protecting us and bringing us so many happy times and funny memories! I look at your photo every day and wish you were here lying in your bed, resting your weary bones. I hope that now you are young again and running at the beach, chasing other dogs, playing with your pink kitty, and eating all the cookies you want!

Perhaps one day we will meet again, my beautiful girl, and we will go bye bye together like we used to. Until then, RIP Bailey girl, and know you are loved and never forgotten.
