My dearest Bailey, by Yvette Laugier

You were my soulmate. We went through so much together during the almost 17 years we had together. You were the best to come home to after a trip or work day.

As soon as I saw you, I knew we were meant to be together. We played, we chilled out, we ate together, and you were the best travel companion on airplanes with me for holidays. You were my shadow and took care of me and always knew how I felt. It was my duty and honor to take care of you. I didn’t know there are so many animal medical specialists, but I gladly went to all of them.

I miss you so much, even three months after you left for the Rainbow Bridge. I am so glad I was at home with you and kept you in my lap for what I now know were your last remaining few hours. I wish I knew you would leave that night, but maybe I didn’t realize what was happening.

I have a huge hole in my heart, and I still see you everywhere in my home.

How can such a small dog leave such a big void in my home? I have gone through all the “firsts” without you since you left: coming home from the office without you waiting for me, packing for my work trips without you jumping in my suitcase, coming home from trips to not have you waiting for me, empty morning and evening routines without taking care of you.

I love the cards I got from your doctors and my friends, and I still have a little shrine for you in my den that I see every day.

I wish I had had more time with you.
