bailey's new coat

i found this adorable coat at homegoods. isn't it cute? the detailing is really nice with the toggle buttons and the satiny lining. only one problem- there is no place to hook her leash! i never attach her leash to her collar, so i wish the coat had a d-ring sewn to the back so she could wear it on our walks on these cooler days. oh well.

looks like bailey is having quite a chat with santa!

bailey: "i just asked santa if he could find homes for all the homeless pets!"

bailey: "does this coat make me look fat?"

bailey's red jammies

well the weather is turning. news report says we should have rain by the time you are reading this. bailey and i are so cal girls and we don't like the cold. i put on the fireplace and gave her a nice warm bath then she warmed up in her thermal long johns. i told her she looked so cute, i had to take her picture. she just wanted to curl up and nap, hence the sleepy eyes, but i told her i needed a new blog post and that this would be perfect.

bailey: "wait mom, lamb chop has an itch she can't reach."

bailey: "ok last pic, then me and lamb chop are off to dreamland."

a fab chihuahua pillow

"mom! we got another fab box!"

"um, something is staring at me."

"hey, it's a pillow of my aztec ancestor! do you see the resemblance?"

did anyone see this chihuahua pillow in fab's pet shop earlier this month? guess who had to have it? me! it was made by rachael of perpetually yours pets and was available as a boy or girl. (i got the girl.) according to her website "each dog is dressed in costume based on the history or a characteristic of his/her breed." since this is a chihuahua, she is dressed as an aztec warrior.

the fab sale has ended but you can still buy them at perpetually yours pets. there are currently 9 breeds available, with plans to increase the breed line considerably and to expand to cats too! the pillows come in a choice of 4 color combinations so i'm sure you'll find one to match your decor. (i chose butternut). rachael is an illustrator and graphic designer and each design is her original creation. they are printed with water based inks, stuffed with polyester fiberfill and made right here in the usa. next time you are surfing the web, stop by perpetually yours pets and tell her judy (& bailey) sent you!

yo quiero taco bell

i hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving yesterday. hubby & i had a quiet day with the doggies because daughter #1 is up north in monterey and daughter #2 is in new york :( but i digress...
hubby and i decided to go out for a coffee before dinner and on the way we passed taco bell. i thought it would be funny if we took a picture of bailey with the taco bell sign. since they were closed i could take my time and i wouldn't feel funny with people watching me take a picture of my chihuahua at taco bell. BOL

"i am thankful that my human parents rescued me and brought me into such a warm and loving home. it makes me sad for all the homeless pets that will be spending their thanksgiving alone and forgotten."

making new friends

bailey has been doing very well at the dog park. she likes sniffing all the scents and snooping around and just stays to herself for the most part. she is happy to meet and greet anydog that comes up to her and politely asks for a sniff, like the guy in this picture. but she will not tolerate when they come charging at her with absolutely no manners. she will speak up and put them in their place. she tells them "that is no way to greet a lady".

aoife on the other hand needs a little more work. she is a little on the nervous side. she gets possessive of us and doesn't like anydog coming near. does anyone have any suggestions on helping eef to relax?

then & now

this month marks the 2 year anniversary of bailey's gotcha day. when i showed this pair of pictures to my hubby, he thought bailey looked older in the "then" picture. she looks more ragged and you can see the pain in her eyes. it looks like we have reversed the aging process now that bailey is in our care. yay for bailey!

luxating patella

another year has flown by and it's time again for bailey's vaccinations. she was a brave little girl and didn't even flinch with the injection. as a reward doc gave her a jerky treat and three more for the road!

since i was there, i mentioned to our vet that sometimes when bailey runs, she skips or bunny hops. he said that is caused by a luxating patella, basically she has a trick knee. he said to keep an eye on her and if it becomes an issue we'll deal with it at that time but since it doesn't seem to bother her, she's good to go.

btw, bailey did not eat the jerkey as soon as she got into the car. she brought them all home and will share them with aoife over the next couple of days.

a really big stick

over the weekend hubby trimmed one of our trees and we ended up with this really big "stick". before he chopped it into a bunch of tiny little sticks, i told him "WAIT, PHOTO OP!" i mean, how often are we gonna have a 12' tree branch like this in our back yard? i gotta take some pics with the doggies!

"hey goose, how do you like my stick?"

more new friends

on friday's visit to the dog park, more friends were made.
the dog that looks like a miniature husky was actually a 19 year old chihuahua mix! she hobbles along with her arthritis and can hardly see with her cataracts, but she's a trooper and still comes to the dog park with her person.

the spotted dog is buchi, a chihuahua/jack russell mix. she was just a puppy but bailey was still smaller. she was a bundle of energy. bailey & aoife didn't really know what to make of her because she never stopped running! i tried to get a picture of her cute face but she never stayed still long enough for me to get it.
there were even a few horses that strolled by on the horse trail that goes right by the dog park.

what did you do this weekend?
