world spay day 2012

bailey wants to remind everyone that today is world spay day. aside from preventing unwanted litters, spaying/neutering could save their life, as in bailey's case. she could be the poster girl for spay day. unbeknownst to us, her uterus and ovaries were inflamed and diseased. if we hadn't spayed her when we did, she would have died. please spay & neuter your pets, it could save their lives.

bailey discovers a dandelion

bailey was on a mission; a mission of discovery. she set her sights on the backyard. yes, this was the place. the backyard is full of uncharted territory. she searched high and low (mostly low) until she discovered...

a dandelion!

liebster blog award

last week i was awarded the liebster blog award by one pibble's wish, a blogger that is trying to change the misconception of the pit bull, one blog at a time. if you haven't checked them out, stop by and tell them bailey sent you!

i am fairly new to the blogosphere but am enjoying sharing bailey's stories with whoever cares to read them and i really do appreciate your comments. it's nice to know i am not just talking to myself. it's also nice to know that i'm not the only one obsessed with their dog. meeting fellow dog lovers is a kick!

daddy's arms

everyday when hubby gets home from work, we go relax in the den with our cups of coffee. this picture shows where bailey ends up relaxing. she tucks herself into "daddy's" arms and stays there until he's done.

edith ann

bailey is doing her edith ann impersonation. and that's the truththth.

for those of you that didn't live through the 70's, this is edith ann, a character lily tomlin would perform on laugh-in, sitting in a giant rocking chair.

the sniff test

i received my marley coffee order the other day and the ever cautious bailey had to first give the box the sniff test. after she said it was ok to open the box...

she had to give the coffee beans the sniff test. when all was clear, and bailey approved, i was able to make myself my cup of marley joe :)

zuke's z-bones

here is an example of what we have to do so bailey can enjoy a bone, like a somewhat normal dog. she loves zuke's clean carrot crunch z-bones. i buy the mini, which is made for 5-25 pound dogs, but my 4 pound bailey doesn't have the jaw strength to eat it on her own, so...

i cut it up for her. this makes her a very happy little doggie :)

"now whip it, into shape, shape it up, get straight,
go forward, move ahead, try to detect it, it's not too late,
to whip it, whip it good"

caught in the act

i leave bailey unsupervised for one minute and what do i find her doing when i return? she's online, shopping for a new leash at kibblesplace.com! if i've told her once, i've told her a million times; no computer without adult supervision. geez, i own the company, if she wants a new leash, all she has to do is ask :)

rain, rain go away

yesterday was bailey's least favorite day. it rained all day. she was devastated when she had to go outside. normally she bounds outside and runs to lay on her outdoor doggie bed to catch some rays. not yesterday. it was cold, wet & gloomy. not at all a good day for a 4 pound chihuahua :(

bailey spent most of the day like this, trying to stay warm

will the real bailey please stand up?

bailey is dressed in her hurrah for this chihuahua tee shirt just like her barking chip the chihuahua rescue toy. she thinks if she stays still enough, i won't be able to tell which is which. silly little bailey!

toy & shirt available at kibbles place.

take me riding in the car, car

bailey doesn't care where we go in the car as long as she is invited. she knows my ritual before leaving the house and she starts getting excited, hoping she'll be invited along. if i tell her "i'll be right back" she drops her head and starts moping around the house. if i tell her "let's go car" she starts spinning circles and is absolutely thrilled to be included.

wordless wednesday: WINK

save a life, rescue a dog

we rescued bailey 14 months ago and it was the best decision we could have made. when i hear of someone that just bought a dog, i think of all the dogs that will live their final days in the cold surroundings of a shelter. never knowing love, never having a family. it just breaks my heart. shelter dogs are just as good, if not better, than the puppy mills dogs you are likely to find at the pet stores. if you are thinking of adding a dog to your family, please consider adopting a homeless pet; you will literally be saving a life.

chihuahua on duty

bailey, my little watchdog, is keeping an eye out for anyone or anything that looks suspicious. she can't hurt you with her little bite, but she can break your eardrum with her piercing bark!

comfortably numb

i was taking pictures of bailey the other day when she stuck her face right in the camera. i snapped this shot and i love it. it is so random, it just cracks me up. it looks like she should be singing pink floyd's comfortably numb:
"hello, is there anybody in there? just nod if you can hear me. is there anyone at home?"

scary kibble

bailey is a pretty good eater and usually finishes her plate of food, veggies and all! her only problem is the kibble. in the first place they are too big for her, so we end up breaking each one of them in half. then when she does bite them, the breaking sound in her mouth scares her. it scares her so much that she actually jumps! i wonder if any other small dog owners have this problem.

is it lunchtime?

groundhog day

punxsutawney phil has nothing on bailey. we went outside and bailey saw her shadow too! i guess he was right, 6 more weeks of winter :(
