Hi Don & Vera, Thank you so much for your kind words about Bailey!! He really was an amazing little soul. 😇 He had already been abused when we got him as a small puppy but he was so trusting, loyal and loving. We were also told that his legs were not straight and he was missing some teeth but he didn't know the meaning of the word "quit". Bailey loved to walk in the rain, in the snow and he just kept going, even after he became so ill, until we finally had to help him find peace. My husband and I had always said he had the heart of a lion. We later found out that "Shih Tzu" means "Lion dog" - we weren't surprised. The candles you posted in honour of his 2 year anniversary are beautiful! ❤️ Thank you so much!! Bailey would be so proud!! I am leaving a message on your thread with regard to your beautiful little girl "Bella"! Thanks so much again!! 🤗 MJ
So wonderful with how your adorable Bailey didn't let anything get in his way of having fun and enjoying his time with you and your husband. When you said that Bailey didn't know the meaning of the word "quit", well...my head starting nodding up and down as a little knowing smile came upon my face, as I say those exact words about little girl, they were the same with how she and Bailey never let anything get in their way, nothing was going to stop them from having the fun they wanted. And then when you mentioned how your handsome Bailey has the heart of a lion, and later you found out that Shih Tzu means "Lion Dog" well my little smile turned into an even bigger and broader smile and even a bit of a chuckle. Oh my how Bailey and Bella are so similar, I did a painting of Bella that I titled "Get in the Car Now!!! Heart of a Lion". I will send it to you, I bet it brings such a knowing smile to your face.
Thank you so much for your very touching words on Bella's thread, the words you wrote truly touched my heart, thank you for doing so.
To Bailey and Bella, forever our Lion Hearted loved ones, they may be small, but they never let that deter them from what ever they wanted to accomplish....so wonderful and so absolutely beautiful.
May the love and light of your adorable Bailey always be felt so deeply in your heart, bringing with his love, the continued peace and healing you and your husband deserve.
Thank you for your extremely touching words, I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know you enjoyed the documentary.
In Friendship, Don
