In January 2005, my family and I set out in a snowstorm to pick up an adorable puppy named Daniel. While playing with him, "Denise" came out to greet us and quickly stole our hearts. We wound up leaving with Denise, who later became known as Bailey, and our lives were never the same again. We were told Bailey was a Shepherd/Lab mix who was going to be between 40-50 pounds. The Shepherd part was right, but we later found out she was a Shepherd/Rottweiler mix who weighed around 92 pounds.
Bailey lived a happy life and was loved by everyone who met her. For as much as she was loved, she loved the water! No matter where we were, if there was water around, Bailey would find it, and would usually be in it before we knew it! The beach and the pool were probably her two favorite places on Earth. She loved squeaky toys, going for car rides, the snow, play dates with her friend Hannah, and green peppers! She loved her brother Jack who went from an annoying puppy with razor sharp teeth to the best twenty pound guard dog a paralyzed dog could ask for! She was famous for howling the "happy birthday" song along with people every time she heard it!
