Bailey Nutt
1/1/2005 - 3/29/2020Today my best friend went to doggie heaven. When I walked in the house last night she was tired and weak but still stood up and even wagged her tail. I cuddled her all last night in the “big bed” and this morning she had steak and a Bud Light for breakfast.

I’ve had her since I was in college at a time that I definitely shouldn’t have been trusted to keep another life alive. As many of my college friends remember the girl used to love a good poolside beer. She was the life of the party.

She’s had a great life. She’s lived in multiple states and traveled the country more than some people ever will. From hiking in Yosemite to playing in the snow in Vermont to tubing on Lake Murray, I’ve always tired to keep her active, happy, and show her unconditional love.

There are many things in my life I’ve done wrong, but Bailey is one thing I did right. I can say without hesitation that she’s my best friend. Until we meet again, my girl!

Oh,sweet Bailey. I will miss being warmly greeted by your wagging tail even with a little nip.
We were lucky that you came to be part of our family .I will always remember how cute you looked in your Christmas outfit seating between Kate and your Mom on my back porch.

Sweet, sweet Bailey you left an permanent mark on our hearts. The pup in you loved to romp, run, spin and flirt with the cute guys; your human half loved to curl up at the top(only) of the bed, eat from the dining table and go for only child adventures. We were blessed to have you in our lives. Say “Hi” to Jicker Jack and Penny. Thank you for the joy you shared❤️.Maureen and Mike Swindall - April 3, 2020
Remember when I said no dogs at the pool house? Glad no one listened to me!
You couldn’t help being happy whenever you saw Bailey do her “happy spin” or run for the door when she heard car keys were involved- and by the way she was the best swimmer ever! We all miss you Ba.

It’s so hard here without you. Every time I go to say something to you out of habit, it hurts. Then I try to think about a memory of you and it makes me so happy. Thank you for all the joy, happiness and companionship you gave. I’m thinking of you and giving Blue and Chanel extra love. Love you!
