Montego Big Band
'Bailey" had a chequered start to his life, having 3 homes in 18 months. He came home to where he was bred and due to me being unable to keep him with me, he was placed with Tiffany and Stuart, just down the road from Montego. Tiff and Stuart already had one of my Montego Girls and wanted a companion for Miss Murphy. They took Bailey into their home and hearts and loved him till the end. Bailey was taken to Rainbow Bridge far too early. But we like to think he is romping up there with his Dad, Aust NZ Ch. Dalius Bandmaster(Imp UK)and his kennel mate Maurice. Rest in Peace my beautiful man.
Loved and remembered by all who knew him.
