Bailey Sue was adopted from the Fairbanks animal shelter in September 2005. She was 8 years old at the time and won my heart when I bent down to pet her and she stuck her head right next to my heart and just snuggled. I remember looking up at Leif and he immediately knew that she was our dog.
Last night, Bailey stayed outside all night - which is unusual for her, but I thought maybe she was just hot and it wasn't too cold last night. When I brought her in this morning I could see she wasn't doing well. Her stomach was extremely bloated and she drank 2 dish fulls of water within an hour. So, we headed to the vet.
I've blogged early that we suspected that Bailey had cancer due to the growth on her lip and lower leg. We had also started to feel a lump on her stomach. When the vet showed me the x-ray, the lump we were starting to feel on her stomach was much larger on the inside - which was making her intestines not act properly. So, with my sweet 13 year old Bailey, the vet shared her opinion and the best options for Bailey. With the tough decision, we said good bye. We love you Bailey Sue <3 br="">3>
