Before We Age

Bye, Bye Bayla

Meet Bayla.

She entered my life nine years ago when I lived in Tennessee. We’ve traveled long distances together having lived in Tennessee, Dallas, Houston, and Los Angeles. Sadly, she won’t be making the trek to Buenos Aires with us. There are too many logistics involved to make it all worthwhile.

Thankfully, we don’t have to give her up completely. Maggie’s sister, Emily, and her husband, Ryan, have graciously decided to take her in while we are away.

Bayla will certainly enjoy this phase of her life. She’s getting an upgrade in so many ways! Check out her new pad.

The only troubling aspect of this set up is that Emily is already trying to convert Bayla into an OSU Buckeye fan. I guess comprises often have to be made.

Before we said good-bye, Maggie and I took Bayla on a long walk down the street to the coffee shop.

We did all the things we’ve been doing for the past nine years.

We walked.

Last walk with Bayla in a long time.

We sat.

And Bayla pooped. She still hasn’t learned any manners.

Bye, bye, Bayla! We love you and we’ll miss you. Oh, and we’ll expect some Skype calls from time to time.
