RIP Bailey the Labrador Retriever 2000 - 2017

Those of you who have been reading the blog for a while know about Bailey, my friend, companion, and guardian of the Hipster Hens.  I'm sorry to report that Bailey passed away this morning due to a rapidly growing abdominal tumor.  She had a good and long life - sixteen years old is pretty phenomenal for a Labrador retriever.  And she certainly enriched my life - I'll miss her a lot.  Bailey is unique in that she chose us to be her family rather than us choosing her to be our dog.  I wrote a post about that which I'm linking here if you would like to take a look.  My wife Kathy recently wrote a booklet about Bailey's life that I think makes an excellent pictorial epitaph, and I'm sharing it here.
