Bailey and Newfies....


Do you remember Bailey?
She is my BFF 
and Mike and Beth's granddaughter....

Bailey loves Newfoundland dogs.
She has been around them ever since she
was a baby.  The very first Newfie she knew
was Taylor.  
She lived with Mike and Beth too.

Taylor

She went to the Rainbow Bridge shortly after
Bailey was born....

Then she met Samuel....


Bailey AND Samuel were both little!

She loved Samuel SO much!
  
As they grew up together she 
would walk him when she visited Mike and Beth 
and he minded every thing she said.


So when Beth found this plate
by Janet Cain she just had to get it because
it looked just like Bailey and Samuel....



Isn't it cool?

Samuel had to go to the
Rainbow Bridge way too
soon Beth said....

And now here I am!

Bailey loves me too!

And guess what....
she walks me just like
she did Samuel....


And I mind every thing she says....

Later -- Remington --
I wish I could see her more often....
I really miss her....
-- out!

The picture of Samuel and Bailey as babies is cute.
What a luck to have found the plate.
I'm not surprised Bailey love Newfies, how could it be otherwise

Gloria Hood said...

Oh wow! That is so awesome! Bailey is one smart girl for sure to love you!

Oh Rem....Bailey has inherited her love of Newfies from Beth and Mike.
Taylor and Samuel were very good baby sitters just like the Newfie in Peter Pan! Newfies are absolutely gentle giants who love everyone unconditional. Children learn so much by learning to love animals!!

I the picture of Bailey and Samuel MUST have been the inspiration for the plate.

Beth this is a beautiful post. My eyes are a tad moist after looking at all the love here.
Hugs Madi and Mom

We truly enjoyed seeing Bailey and her Newfie friends.. What a lucky girl she is to have known so many gentle giants.

and we love the plate...you and Bailey should share a piece of cake off of it, but only one time.

It was almost like the artist saw the picture of Bailey and Samuel and painted it on the plate.
This is such a beautiful post.

Priscilla said...

Precious pictures! Bailey is so lucky to have so many wonderful Newfies with her and she is a precious gem to all the newfies and vice versa.

The plate is absolutely gorgeous!

Such a sweet Newfie Heritage!
That one pic with Samuel and Bailey,
she looks like she could have used a saddle on him!
We are so glad she now has you, Rem!
I'm sure you are a perfect gentleman when she takes you for walks!
Maybe you'll get to see her for Spring Break!

There's a whole bunch of "awwww" packed into your post today, Remington! We loved seeing the Newfoundlands who came before you - and oh, my! That plate is just perfect!
I need to get Mom to shoot some pix of one of our quilts for you; I think you'd like it! She made it to honor our great-brother Booter -- one of our vets dubbed him a "Pocket Newf". Ha woo.
Luv,
Dave

JC said...

Awe, Remington you are so loved. Tell your Mom that I am sorry that her previous loves went before their time. I'm sure you have healed her heart and made it happy again.

Sweet William The Scot said...

We think Samuel helped the artist draw that picture on the plate. And Samuel made it possible for Beth to find. Love can make miracles happen.

I don't get it, but this post made My Vickie cry. What is the deal? She just says it is so special and that Bailey is a very special girl and you are very special and together you make her cry.

Weird, isn't she. (I mean, My Vickie)
