Celebrating Bailey's Life with Bailey's Song!

I will leave it to others to remind you of the breadth and depth of the difference one dog made to an entire country. Bailey became a bit of a rock-star in Japan -  with documentaries made about him, books written about him, appearances on the national news multiple times... but it was his gentle power of healing that inspired the song featured below.
