I'm sharing my blog space today in memory of Bailey, the diminutive chiweenie who made a big impact on former Dispatch reporter Andy Shaw. My colleague reporter Liz Scolforo brought this to my attention —  and reading it has affected me as it did her.

It's heartbreakingly beautiful. There's nothing I can add to this.

Please take a few minutes to read it — you'll be so glad you did. And consider supporting Murielle's Place, if you are able.

If you have older pets in your life and/or want to help support a nonprofit that is doing incredible work with senior dogs that few others would ever take on, please consider making a donation to Murielle’s Place. Bailey and I would appreciate it very much. - Andy Shaw
