Bailey's life was cut short due to genetic health issues (Pancreatic Enzyme Disorder, Anemia & Epilepsy)! Bailey passed away on 7/29/2010. He was only 20 months old. With all the medication he was on it destroyed is liver and eyesight. WE MISS & LOVE YOU BAILEY!

I will lend to you for awhile

A puppy, God said,

For you to love him while he lives

And to mourn for him when he is gone.

Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,

Or maybe for two or three

But will you, till I call him back

Take care of him for me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you

And (should his stay be brief)

You'll always have his memories

As solace for your grief.

I cannot promise that he will stay,

Since all from earth return,

But there are lessons taught below

I want this pup to learn.

I've looked the whole world over

In search of teachers true

And from the folk that crowd life's land

I have chosen you.

Now will you give him all your love

Nor think the labor vain

Nor hate me when I come to take my pup back again?

I fancied that I heard them say

"Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done,"

For all the joys this pup will bring,

The risk of grief you'll run.

Will you shelter him with tenderness?

Will you love him while you may

And for the happiness you'll know forever grateful stay?

But should I call him back

Much sooner than you've planned

Please brave the bitter grief that comes

And try to understand.

If, by your love, you've managed

My wishes to achieve,

In memory of him that you've loved,

Cherish every moment with your faithful bundle,

And know he loved you too.

Via con Dios, Bailey.
