For some, April 15 is Tax Day. Here in the de Jong household, it's Bailey Day. On April 15, 2001, Bailey Grace Abbas de Jong was born, along with the others in her litter, to a proud momma Shih Tzu in South Dakota. After a few stops, she came to live with me in September 2001. In September of 2006, she met the man who would become her daddy, what I'm pretty sure she considers the best gift of her life. In April 2007, she moved in with her new daddy (and I rejoined her in July). In December 2007, she became a big sister to Daniel Joel, though she's not quite as appreciative of that gift.
Happy Birthday, Bailey!
