This has been a tough year for our therapy group, and today we lost another. Bailey was a 10 year old lab/chow mix, and the sweetest girl you'd ever want to meet. A lot of the visits we did, she and her dad were there too, until she announced her retirement last month. She had both liver disease and canine dimentia, and today it got the best of her.

Bailey not only worked hard as a therapy dog, but she also worked with her mom at local archery club. She touched the lives of so many, and will be deeply missed.

In our last newsletter, when Bailey announced her retirement, she shared some of the things she learned in her years as a therapy dog. I want to share them, cause there are some good lessons....

Rottweilers and Pit Bulls don't always deserve their reputations.
Golden Retrievers do.
Mixed Breeds Rule!
Riding on elevators is fun...especially with kids
People in psych wards aren't that different from other people I know.
Hamburgers are great treats (French fries are good too)
Tricks are fun to watch...but who wants to work that hard?
Dr. Suess wrote some darn good books

RIP Bailey! We will miss you!!

Rest In Sweet Peace Bailey.:(

I happen to agree with all her life's observations. Bailey was
a credit to all dogs everywhere. She was a beautiful soul and
will be sadly missed.

So Sorry Bailey has been called to the Bridge ...

You did Good on your Life's Missions, Bailey ~
Mom would have loved to have you visit with her at her Village.

Look Mom up, Bailey - she'll have a apron on - filled with treats.

Rest In Peace, Bailey!
