They’re always nearby. Always around us. Always next to us. Until they’re not. And it’s only then that we know just how big a hole their absence leaves in our lives and our hearts.
Bailey wasn’t the original Barkery Dog, (that honor goes to her predecessor, Aspen), but she was loved by everyone she met. She was huge. A St. Bernard mixed with…well, something wonderful. Gentle around children and other dogs, she put everyone at ease. She could gallop like a horse with other large dogs, or gently play tug-of-war with a tiny terrier. She was the world’s biggest lap dog. And she was a part of our store and our family.
When she lost her fight with cancer in the summer of 2016, she left not one life untouched by her passing. We miss you, Bailey.
