there's an app for that

do you 'fly the friendly skies' with your dog? (that used to be united airlines' slogan, remember? but they aren't so dog friendly now are they? anyway, i digress.) is it a struggle to find a place for your pooch to do his business at the airport? there's an app for that. it's the 'where to go' app, a directory of airport animal relief areas. it lists u.s. airports, where your dog can go and directions on how to get there. download it free at the itunes store.

chirp chirp

this scrub jay & his partner have been collecting nesting material from my backyard for the past week or so. bailey doesn't like them. but it's not her fault. i've seen the bird taunting her. the bird runs across the fence, back and forth, making bailey chase it back and forth. i don't know if it was playing with her or teasing her but bailey won't stand for it.

this is the best picture i could get, as both the bird and dog were in motion.
don't forget you can enlarge it :)

aoife wants to play; bailey not so much

aoife is desperate to play with bailey but bailey just can't be bothered. aoife tried all her tricks, back kicking, barking, butt up, but little bailey wanted nothing to do with her shenanigans.  as you can see by the last picture, it's as if she's asking me to make aoife go away.  poor eef :(

stormy weather

yesterday we had terrible weather. we were stuck in the house all day with a storm pounding outside. poor bailey had no sun. so to stay busy, we played with lots of toys. i line her toys up and she picks the one she wants to play with. how do you keep your doggies busy when the weather outside is frightful? how do you keep them out of mischief?

please pick me up, please?

when bailey notices that i have an empty lap, she very politely asks if she can keep it warm for me.  she thanks me for picking her up then gets into her cozy position and settles in.  this is a daily ritual, btw.

it's not as if there is nowhere else to lay.  she has beds.  she just chooses for them to remain empty.  this bed for example.  perfectly comfy & cozy... yet here it sits... empty & forgotten.

spring has sprung

* * * happy spring! * * * 

a couple of days ago this beautiful american painted lady came to feast on the orange tree in my backyard.  it took me several attempts to photograph this beauty, but my persistence paid off in the end.  be sure to click the pictures to enlarge them.

nom nom, pumpkin pie!

who says pumpkin pie is only for thanksgiving? it is hubby's favorite pie so we have it a few times a year. bailey didn't get a taste of the cakes we've had lately but i think she can have a nibble of the pumpkin.

monday mischief: say uncle!

bailey doesn't care that aoife is more than twice her size; little bailey's got spunk. and aoife, being the good sport that she is, lets bailey think she's got the upper paw hand.

sorry for the blurred picture but the doggies just don't stay still!

stop and smell the pee

as we take our walks and live our lives, bailey wants to remind each and every one of us to take some time to stop and smell the pee. life is short and gone before you know it.

enjoy life.
don't sweat the small stuff.
and don't forget to stop and smell the pee.

special delivery

bailey looks forward to the ups delivery when it comes with her name on the box. this was our latest delivery. and as bailey sits patiently, she wonders how much longer she'll have to wait until i open a package for her.

don't worry, it's not all for her. aoife gets half of the goodies.

objects in mirror are closer than they appear

don't worry, the car is parked. bailey was just stretching her legs while hubby was getting lunch. i would never drive with a loose doggie in the car. bailey is always secured in her doggie car seat.

bohemian rhapsody

i thought there was more light than there was when i took this picture but i LOVE how it turned out. reminds me of queen's bohemian rhapsody video, don't you think?

i see a little silhouetto of a man, scaramouche! scaramouche! will you do the fandango?! thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me! galileo, galileo, galileo, galileo, galileo, figaro, magnifico...

queen: circa 1975

i am chihuahua, hear me roar!

bailey is shouting it from the rooftops (actually she's on a pile of rocks; it's too dangerous on a roof).

i am strong... i am invincible... i am chihuahua.
