    Default Hrch Calypso Seven Bales High SH (Bailey) 10/2000- 10/2013

    A friend of mine called me one morning because he knew I was in the market for a new puppy. He told me his breeder had two pups left from a really nice litter. I called and told her I would take the Female sight unseen.


    That was the start of HRCH Calypso Seven Bales High SH ‘s life with us.


    She was a great puppy! Full of GO right out of the box. Just a really fun Dog!!


    I am not much for writing words to honor her, so here are some pics as my way of Honor, and saying good by… We loved you very much “B”!! Because of you our lives have been made more full.

    Mike,

    Condolences for your loss of Bailey. I know how much your four legged kids mean to you. God's speed Bailey...may you break on every flyer and catch them before they hit the ground!

    Mike I am so sorry to hear that Bailey has passed but you and Diane have all those great memories. I know that no other dog can replace her but Flinch is trying hard for you, so go hunting and just think of the good times you had with her.

    Take care buddy,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know from how you wrote about them how much you love your dogs.

    We have a 13 year old at home and consider every day we get with her from now on is a gift.


    RIP Bailey

    I've been keeping you, Diane and Bailey in my thoughts all morning. I truly understand the emotions and heartache you are experiencing. There aren't words to make it better, but I hope knowing that others share your grief bring some comfort.

    The memories...ahhhhhh, such sweet memories...they will always be with you.

    Hugs.

    I'm sorry Gooser. It's tough to loose one.

    They are never with us long enough.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
