Bailey, You loved your toys - even liked to sleep with them! 
I always loved watching you sleeping as you looked so content - especially when you snored
- and made me feel sleepy! How I miss hearing that sweet little snore!!

Hi MJ, 

Surprise! Thought I would check this out & glad I did. Being lucky enough to have known Bailey, I certainly know how much there is to miss. Such a special little man. So many good times & memories with Mr. B :) Thought I would post this picture of our beautiful boys back when they were just puppies! I like to think of them together again. 

Summer 2000 - Bailey & Ryan

Hi MJ. love that photo of Bailey looking all cosy on the sofa !  And the following one of him as a pup, such a cute little face.  Jim used to wake me up sometimes with his snores, another one of the things I miss so much about him.

Hey hon! What a wonderful surprise! OMG they both look so young. Our 2 boys: we loved them both so much! Ryan and Bailey - They looked so different but were so alike: loyal, loving, beautiful spirits who will always be with us. I've missed Ryan so much these past few years and now Bailey has gone to join him. It's so hard to believe and so unfair that they couldn't stay longer but they will be forever in our hearts!

I'm sure you know how much Mr. B loved you and how excited he was whenever you would visit. I just had to mention your name and he watched the front door - and usually howled for approx. 20 mins before you got here!!

Beautiful Ryan was so very special. I still remember when you first got him. Such a sweet boy! :) He loved when I would take him out on your deck and brush him while he chewed on his bone.

I can only hope that they have found a safe place to play, both young again and free from pain, having loads of fun together until we are lucky enough to see them once again. Thanks so much for posting this beautiful picture!!

Thanks Jackie! Bailey certainly loved to be comfy just like Jim! He didn't push me off the sofa though - lol still laughing about that! I love it when people spoil their pets like we did. They both really deserved it after the rough start they both had. I remember my husband's knees literally hanging off the bed before he would ask Bailey to move - so cute! Didn't you find their snoring comforting? When I heard Bailey snore, it was all I could do to stay awake! So many things to miss!! I'm still waiting on that dream from Bailey - hopefully in time. Have you dreamed of Jim ?
Hugs, MJ

Love the picture of Bailey & Ryan. Two handsome, well loved boys. Also remember the snoring...agree it was comforting too. When Lucy was younger I think she was a light sleeper-- always listening & 'protecting. In later year(s), she would doze off into deep dreaming and it was comforting. Almost a role reversal-- listening to her sleeping-- wanting to protect her. MJ, I hope Bailey comes to your dreams soon.  Hugs, Kasey

I`ve not had a single dream of Jim, but my husband had had quite a few. Maybe we`re trying too hard, or because we`re still grieving so much. I can`t wait though, although I know I`ll probably wake up in tears ! 
 The funny thing about Jim`s snoring is that it never bothered me  -  unlike the husband`s snores - which really annoy me !  Another little example of us putting up with anything our boys did !!

That's funny Jackie! I hate when my husband snores too - lol. It's just not the same at all! :)
I want so badly to see Bailey again but I know exactly what you mean. It will be bittersweet so let's hope
when Jim and Bailey decide to come visiting our dreams they will be pleasant and comforting.
Wishing you sweet dreams of Jim!
MJ :)

That is one cute picture of Bailey and Ryan! I just saw it. They were both beautiful dogs - both
at the bridge now hanging out and having a good time. I hope you get that dream of Bailey soon.

Thanks Sampson! You are always so kind. It is a cute picture isn't it? Ryan and Bailey were cousins. I thought I'd better edit this and explain: Ryan was my sister's dog so even thought they didn't look alike (Golden Retriever and Shih tzu) they got along really well during family get togethers (which happen often) We always called them cousins. My niece looked up this Forum after I had mentioned posting on it and surprised me by posting a picture of Ryan and Bailey. My husband and I had just rescued Bailey. Unfortunately Ryan passed 3 days before his 12th birthday so I guess he and Bailey are together now. :)
Thanks again!
MJ

I have just been reading through the story of your Bailey. What a sweet dog! I had 2 shihtzus for years and they are so loyal, so lovable and so smart! So I was interested to hear about your shihtzu and he seemed very special. I love the pictures you posted, especially the one where he was lying in the grass at your home. As someone else commented, there was light all around him. It really was beautiful. Thanks for sharing and also for giving this little guy, who obviously had a rough start in life, such love and an amazing home. It really is wonderful to see!
Hugs to you

Sampson, yes I am going to post more pics of Bailey! :)

CK, I am so glad you enjoyed Bailey's story/pics. He really was a good little dog! The picture you mentioned is one of my favorites. We were actually the lucky ones to have Bailey in our lives for 15 years. Thanks for your kind words!

MJ :)
