Just got a message from Roxann Bailey our So Cal Rescue rep that Brutus Bailey went to the Rainbow Bridge. Here is her message to me

"Brutus has gone to run and play ball in the sunshine on the other side.
Born March 1992, he had a wonde...rful long life as the reigning patriarch of the
Bailey pack from 10/24/1992 to 10/16/2009. He was our first Italian Greyhound
and the reason we are in Rescue today. His passing was gentle, peaceful and
full of love.

Rox and Jim"


Here is a photo of our buddy Brutus taken last year at our Halloween costume party fundraiser for rescue.

RIP Brutus!

Brutus was a really cool old soul. Last few years he was blind; but still managed his way around the dog park each weekend! wub.gif Long good he did have. . We will miss him. I printed his photo's and have a candle lit so his path to the bridge is brightly lit! Follow the lights Brutus!
