Our Best Friend has left us.

The photos from the previous post were taken on Sunday. By Thursday of the following week Bailey had lost all feeling and control of both rear legs and was unable to stand. On Friday morning we took him to the emergency vet clinic and at approximately 10:30am Baliey died in our arms.

It was one of the most difficult things we have ever done, and I can't remember the last time I cried so hard.

It was so very hard to lose him, but we feel so much better knowing that we did get these last few photographs with him. This is why we do what we do - photographs preserve memories in such a very special way. Our photo with Bailey will soon be framed and hung over our fireplace, along with a box containing his ashes.

Good bye old friend.

I am so sorry to learn this for you and your family. To really know what you are going through you have to have experienced this for yourself. I wish this on no one as we truly feel that are pets are part of the family and when I lost my best friend, it was like losing a brother to me. The good news is that although our pets do not last as long as we would like, god gives us the pleasure to meet another 'best friend' that is all to eager to be just that. I know it is hard and difficult time for you and your family but believe me, if you just look, your new best friend is waiting for you to come and get him! Take care and good luck.
