R.I.P Bailey Garcia by MissKittens R.I.P Bailey Garcia by MissKittens
There was nothing we could have done for her, due to her old age, we couldn't risk surgery to remove the tumor. It just kept bleeding for days, it wouldn't stop. Just yesterday, she fell over in the hallway in front of me and died for a few moments, but came back. That was our signal that she needed to finally rest in peace.

She lived a good long 15 years. She did everything a young lab should do in their lifetime, go swim, hunt, fetch, so much. She even knows a lot of tricks, sit, beg, sleep, roll over, even high five. She was a fantastic dog. So many memories of her that I will always cherish.

She has lived a long and happy life, always wagging her strong tail of hers every day when we came home, i swear to god she was bound to break my leg with that tail of her, it was made of steel or something Lol. She always loved to play and run around, even when she couldn't she still stood up and chased after any toy in front of her, we almost seem to forget how old she actually is.

But, months pass by, we've noticed she hasn't been active as she use to, having trouble getting on the couch and getting off the couch, shes been eatting and drinking just fine. Until we noticed the tumor and thats what made her sick.

Shes at the doctors right now, being put down, I was with her before she left and gave my final tearful goodbyes, I can't bear to see her be put down, but at least she will see my mom and dad in her final moments, thats good enough for me.

Rest in Peace Bailey

We loved you very much, we are going to miss the hell out of you, you were one of the greatest dog we have ever had, we will never forget you <3


I know DA is for art only, but I cant help but put a memorial picture for her...its to always remember the memories of her, and she was a fantastic dog, I wanted some of you to get to see her as well.

I took this picture before we took her to the vet, so she looks ill, lol, im sorry.

Rest in Peace Bailey...

At least shes at peace on rainbow bridge. And one day you'll meet her again, I felt the same way with two of my cats Pumpkin and Kitkat, Who knows maybe Bailey, Pumpkin and Kitkat are friends ^^ But even though she watches over you, Because a good owner to a good pet are friends by heart.

And DA is for pictures, animations and art ^^

I know how you feel. My cat had a stroke just last December, we did all we could, but she kept walking on the top of her paw. We finally brought her to the vet to have her put down. I am so sorry.

I know how you feel. Even though i didn't meet her myself, through the things you've written, she seems to be one hell of a dog. 15 years is a good age. I know since you don't know me, it won't matter a lot to you, but you have my support.

yea i know Lol; i wanted to get them cut, but my family said that it would hurt her so they never did XD; i regret it though ;w;
Chronophobi Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2013
Cutting a dogs nails will not hurt them, only if you cut into their quicks.

In fact you should inform your family that a dog having longer nails will hurt the dog even worse, because for one, they're walking on their nails, that's like you walking on your finger tips, it hurts the dogs paw.

I'm very sorry for your lost, my pet had died a couple of weeks ago too because of her old age and various problems. I'm just happy your's and my pet are in a better place, and they're waiting for their owner to come reunite with them, although it won't be for a while. Again, I hope you and your family will be okay, after this. I hope she'll now rest in peace.

:iconwhiteroseplz:I am so terribly sorry for your great loss of your beautiful Bailey.She was a very beautiful little lady.It's very sad when we lose our pets through illness because we feel so helpless at times when there is no cure for what ails them.If I may say something DA is not just for art it is for photography also and your pet's photo should be allowed.

The best furry friend I could have ever had. The animal that captivated my heart the moment I saw her behind that chain link fence at the pet shelter. There was something in those dark brown hues that just made me instantly say, "I want her." That day has always been in my mind and I will never forget it. Since then, the biggest part of my life has been her. My best friend for 12 years. Always there for me to cry on. Always there to lick my face. Always there for me to talk to, when shes wasn't barking at me for a treat. She was spoiled rotten from the day we brought her home.

They say dogs leave paw prints on our hearts. She sunk her's in and I went over them with permanent marker.

I loved her and still do ♥ Right now she's in my heart. I'll carry her and her memory for the rest of my life. She had a happy life with us. ♥ Even with the large tumor she had, she still ran around like a crazy maniac, barking at the pups. Still tried to chase birds. Argued with me for a cookie. Gave her notorious bouncy bark. All up until the end. She's not in pain anymore.

Don't think that you lost her. You didn't. She's still with you. In your heart and soul. Memories. Forever and for always. That's how I think about it and it helps me :) You'll be okay. I don't know you, but if you need to talk I'm here.

Losing a pet makes you more depressed than losing a family member; I know. After we had to put Tigger down I couldn't stop crying. Just pull through, and don't replace Bailey too quickly. If you need to vent, I'm here for you <3 ;;

Im very sorry for your loss, RIP Little lass. You made a good choice, you helped your dog from being in pain. Its hard to let go, believe me. About 2 or 3 years ago I lost my sweet little rat Fog. She had a breathing problem and would sneeze and cough blood. I woke up on halloween morning and my mom told me she was dead, I was heartbroken. But sometimes things like this have to happen. While I was reading the description there were tears in my eyes. Its so so hard to let go. If you ever need someone to talk to... Im here :) RIP Bailey Garcia
