Paddy Bailey Barnes: April 20, 2006 to May 4, 2019

Paddy was adopted from NBRAN (National Brittany Rescue & Adoption Network) on July 27, 2010. Besides being our super sweet and silky-soft daughter, she was a Delta Therapy Dog and a member of Power Paws where she spent her free Saturdays at libraries reading with children. She was a special fur baby and amazingly sweet, especially considering the abuse she suffered early in her life, which required the amputation of a back leg. We are so thankful to her foster mom, Cathy, who cared for her and willed our little girl to get better. We are also grateful for all the kids who read stories to Paddy and made her happy! We are thankful to Vale Park Animal Hospital for giving us an added year with her because of their skilled and compassionate treatment for her heart condition. Paddy is survived by a daddy, mommy, and three siblings (Buzzby, Lilly & Emmalin) who miss her very much!
