my orange fire hydrant

several years ago, i bought a fire hydrant that i found on craigslist. it has been sitting, untouched, in our backyard ever since. a couple of weeks ago hubby finally found time to restore it. i forgot to take a picture before work began but looking through my image library, i found one that i took a couple of years ago. it was faded, rusted and in much need of some tlc.

i'm so excited! the work has begun. this was taken after the first day of work.

hubby stripped off all the paint, layer... by layer... by layer.

as always, bailey is there to supervise.

after the hand work, he pulled out his electric drill with a wire brush attachment, to get into all the nooks and crannies and around the letters. who knew there were so many words under all that paint!

bailey gives his progress two paws up.

bailey likes how it looks next to our doghouse.

after all the old paint is gone, it gets a couple of coats of primer.

then the exciting part. it gets color!!! of course i wanted it orange!

the caps still need to be attached but the girls were eager to give it the once over.

and there you have it. my orange fire hydrant. I LOVE IT!
do i have the best hubby or what?

did you notice i dressed bailey to match the hydrant? BOL

it is now the focal point of our backyard.

quite a difference, wouldn't you say?

2 years of blogging? say it ain't so!

i posted my very first blog post two years ago today. shocking, but true. i can hardly believe it myself. who knew i would have so much to say about a little 4 pound chihuahua. BOL. i had no idea where this blogging thing would go, if i could keep it up, or if anyone would even be interested in what i had to say.

bailey and i would like to thank each of you for your support and friendship. you guys are awesome. thanks for taking time from your lives to read about my life with my little chihuahua.

spring is in the air

with spring here, it's time to get some work done in the garden, but not bailey! looks like she's gonna take a nap in the shade of our orange tree...

which is full of blossoms...

and bees...

and oranges!

here are just some of the juicy oranges i just picked.

our plum tree is also full of blossoms but no fruit yet. hopefully i can get to the plums before the birds do! every year it's a race that the birds usually win. i end up wiith some plums but the birds get most of them :(

the scariest thing in the world

is there anything that sends your pup into a panic at just the sight of it? for bailey, it's a flyswatter. when she sees it, she runs the other way and goes to hide. especially the sound of the swatter smacking the window. it sends her into a tizzy. it breaks my heart because that means in her previous home, she must have been swatted with one. why else would she be so afraid? we learned right quick when there is a fly in the house, we move bailey to another room so we can avoid any stress it will cause her.

who would dare smack a defenseless little doggie with a flyswatter?

a shamrock doughnut

here at bailey unleashed, we (and by "we" i mean "i") love st patrick's day and all the fun treats everyone makes. last year we noticed krispy kreme made a shamrock doughnut so this year i sent hubby to see if they made them again. they did and as soon as i click "publish" i am gonna treat myself to a little sugartime.

st. patrick's day outtakes

today's mischief isn't really bailey's fault. it's her ears. let me 'splain.
when i was taking pictures for st patrick's day, i thought bailey would look really cute wearing an irish hat. unfortunately her ears had a mind of their own and didn't agree with my plans. her ears are quite stiff and just didn't want to cooperate. hubby kept trying to make the hat stay on her little head but it just kept popping off! i hope you enjoy our failed attempt at putting a hat on bailey.

an irish feast

bailey is enjoying her irish feast. as you can see, she eats mostly vegetables with some fresh cooked chicken, a little bit of canned food and some cottage cheese as a treat (which she is going for first).
happy st patrick's day!

bone appetit little bailey!

i don't usually give her lamb, but it is irish stew afterall.

looks like the food coma is about to set in.

"leprechaun in training"

...and there it is.

lucky dog

bailey would like to make it known that she is one lucky dog!

if i take too long to snap a picture, bailey gets impatient and jumps at the treat i'm holding in my hand. usually she's just a blur but sometimes i'm lucky enough to catch her in focus!
