It’s been a year since my beloved dog Bayley passed away. My heart still hurts when I think about her. I haven’t replaced her yet as I don’t think she can be replaced. I think she was one of those “once in a lifetime sort of dogs”. I still have Claire my standard poodle and as much as Claire missed Bayley when she died, I think she is getting accustomed to the extra attention. Bayley was really an attention hog.
Bayley was a Portuguese Water dog. I bought her twelve years ago before the breed became popular. I can honestly say she was the most sensitive and intuitive dog I have ever met. Can a dog be intuitive? There were times at night if I took a deep cleansing breath, Bayley would do the same. She would press her body against you as if to hug you. Bayley was a great dog and I’m really glad I shared twelve years with her.
