Bailey


Hello, my name is Bailey. I'm four year old black lab that was rescued. I had surgery on my back foot to correct an injury, so I walk with a swagger but it never slows me down. My family adopted me when I was 3-4 months old and this is the only home I know. The people here love me almost as much as I love them. They give me dog treats, take me on long walks, and let me run around the backyard any time I want. My family already had another dog and he's my best friend. Then they adopted a kitty two years ago that doesn't like me, but I haven't really figured that out yet so its all good.


Yesterday something very unfortunate happened. I had a tummy ache, and I did some very terrible things all over a quilt top that my mom had just finished. Very terrible. I didn't mean to, but I chose the one quilt I could reach for some reason. My mom had to rip out two rows, wash them and repair several blocks, and resew them. She said some words I hadn't heard before and I don't think she was very happy. She cried a couple of times. I felt really bad about it. 


But then I took a nap and things seemed much better. She said she forgave me. I'm still not sure what all the fuss was about but I hear a rumor that I'll be sleeping in my crate from now on...wonder what that's all about.

  1. Aww - poor Bailey! Poor Diane! I used to have a dog who would lift his leg on quilts I had laid out on the floor. I think that's why I never use the floor as a "design wall" any more! Hope everyone is much happier today! (PS - I also have a Bailey - black lab mix - not exactly a rescue, but she was left in a basket on our front porch).

  3. AW....poor Bailey. Isn't it a shame that they can't tell us what's wrong with them?
    I hope Bailey is better now and you were able to clean up the quilt in progress......

  4. Poor guy, Bailey certainly is showing his remorse in the second pic ( in the chair, head buried). Who could stay mad at that face? Hope all has righted itself today and Bailey's feeling much better.

  5. I feel sorry for both of you. I remember when my Polly was enthusiastically wagging her tail and her large rump knocked against a corner hutch I had and knocked over numerous Precious Moments and broke them. She was very remorseful when she saw me crying. But all is well and forgiven.

  7. How can you stay mad at a face like Bailey's? I hope he is feeling better and that you were able to save your quilt top. (I can't wait to see your quilt top, too.)

  11. Oh nooo! At first I thought something was seriously wrong with Bailey, so I am glad that he is recovered, at least! And it sounds like your quilt is mended, too, in the end. In a couple of months you'll be laughing about it all, and it will be a funny story for your trunk show!

  12. I'm so glad you were able to fix the quilt - you will definitely have a story to tell with it!! Poor Bailey...looks so contrite. Guess he picked the quilt because he didn't want you to have to clean the floor! Good reminder to keep quilt tops out of the way of our four-legged (and smaller 2-legged) babies! Hope today is a much better day for you both!
