Does your person not understand you?  Are you having a tough time letting your people know what you want?  Want to have better control of your human?

Just ask Bailey!  Now all dogs can get advice straight from the trainer's dog himself on how to better understand and live with their people.  Since Bailey has been successful with his communication with humans, people are also encouraged to write in with questions.

February 4, 2009-

Bailey crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday Feb. 4, 2009 at 11:42am.  He had lymphoma and leukemia.

We decided to send him along before he stopped enjoying life completely. It was one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make. I took him for a long walk around the village on Monday, and we bought lots of goodies at Three Dog Bakery. On Tuesday, we (me, Bailey, my husband, and my daughter) went to the arboretum. It was a beautiful day, and we had such a memorable walk. Chris bought him a $15 steak from our local gourmet market, cooked it, and fed it to him from a regular plate (along with jasmine rice), at our dinner table. We drank champagne and toasted his life.

Bailey was truly my inspiration. He went over the Bridge with dignity, peace, and love, with his head on my lap, and me stroking his fur. I sang "You Are My Sunshine" to him as he passed. I actually felt him leave this earth.

I am grief stricken, but I am also very glad that Bailey is no longer a shadow of what he used to be.  He will be sadly missed.
