rescue me, maybe

a couple of weeks ago jackie over at pooch smooches was giving away a couple of copies of the novel she just published and guess what? i won one! when it arrived my little bailey was up to her mischievous self and wouldn't let me open my box.

"haha, i'm standing on your box!"

silly bailey, you only weigh 4#. it's not that big a deal to move you. BOL then she had to look in before i could even take a peek.

"jackie bouchard? hey mommy, isn't that rita's mom?"

next, aoife came along to see what the commotion was about! um, excuse me girls, the package was addressed to ME.

"look mommy, you got a book!"

thanks for the news flash bailey. can i have it now?
i took it on my trip to new york this weekend and i already read 1/2 the book! i am so curious as to what will happen next that i will probably finish it today. the woman sitting next to me on the plane happened to be a dog person and we started chatting when she saw what i was reading. so it's not only a good read, it can also make you a new friend!

thank you so much jackie and congratulations again, on your book!

mommy's in new york...

...and i'm at home without her. nobody told me that last night's riding into the sunset meant that we were taking mommy to the airport! she said something about it being a long flight and that i've never flown before. all i heard was that i had to stay home and after that it's just a blur. geez, she just went to portland to see daughter #1, now she's off to new york to see daughter #2. i'm just glad there are no more kids! BOL
i will say a prayer that the days go by quickly and that she gets home safely.
xoxo, bailey

my sweet little bailey seemed to be doing a strip tease as she was getting up outta bed this weekend. she somehow managed to get both her front legs out through the neck and her shirt ended up down at her waist! i can't show you what happened next but let's just say it was rated x. BOL

good morning sunshine

every morning when i put bailey out to do her business, instead of going to the lawn, she goes straight to her cot. she loves to lay (or is it lie) there and soak in the morning sunshine. you'd think her tiny bladder would be bursting from a long night's sleep, but she doesn't seem to care. i know she's gonna be there at least 1/2 hour so i usually take my ipad and a cup of coffee out there with me.

yes, i stay out there with her. we've had coyote sightings on our street recently and we also have hawks flying around. i know they're all looking for their next meal and it's not gonna be bailey!

bailey's new bandana

when i went up to portland last month, we went to the portland saturday market. (an art show that is held every weekend at waterfront park march-december.) there were so many talented artists and craftspeople selling their wares. one of the artists that i met was lisa. she sews collars, leashes, bandanas, sweaters, backpacks... so of course i had to buy something for bailey! i bought her a reversible bandana. one side is the pink bandana and the other side has multi-colored skulls/crossbones. i thought it was adorable and since it's reversible, it was like getting two for the price of one. isn't it cute?

zuke's z-bones

bailey loves zuke's z-bones. even though we buy their smallest size (mini for dogs 5-25 lbs) 4 pound bailey still has one problem with them. she doesn't have the jaw strength to chew them. sooo...

i cut them up for her. no, she doesn't have me wrapped around her little finger paw. she really can't bite hard enough to eat them. she will just sit with it and lick it. she will attempt to bite it but she just gets frustrated and starts to nervously carry it around. oh and by the way, it's not only bones. i also cut up her cookies and her kibble! are there any other little doggies out there that can't chew a bone or break a cookie?

{this moment] see beautiful

this is an orange dog caterpillar. while it might look like poop to you, it also looks like poop to it's predators and what bird wants to eat poop? that makes it the perfect disguise. i have these guys in my orange tree where they will thrive, chomping my leaves, until they make their cocoon and emerge as a beautiful swallowtail butterfly. beautiful (someday).

a high school student here in upland took it upon himself to organize the placement of 2,977 flags in front of city hall in honor of the victims of 9/11. beautiful.

daughter #1 sent me these pictures the other day. she saw these guys by the road on her way home from work. can you imagine? beautiful.

this buck reminds me of the animatronics on the jungle cruise at disneyland ... except this guy is real! beautiful.

and of course my little bailey. beautiful.

aoife's back

because of the heaviness of this day, i thought a light-hearted post would be best. it's been a while since aoife has made an appearance so here she is, with two toys stacked on her head. yep, hubby is up to his old tricks again :)

and now a moment of silence...

thunderbolt and lightning, very very frightening me

if bailey could sing, that's the song she would have been singing yesterday. we had some crazy weather last night. we were sitting out on our patio enjoying the cooler evening when all of a sudden, there was lightning to the north of us. a few seconds later, the boom of thunder. bailey's marble eyes nearly popped out of her little apple head. then, just as thunder follows lightning, bailey's shakes follow thunder. luckily the thunder didn't last too long or she would have gone into a full panic. we got a little sprinkle of rain out of the thunder storm but if it's gonna rain, let it rain! this little tease of water from the sky does nothing except dirty our cars.

curb walker

between my flower bed and the lawn, we have a little curb divider. i was going to take a picture to show you how bailey chooses to walk on the little curb rather than walking on the lawn. just as i was about to take her picture, she turned to look at me and this is the face she gave me! now i can't say it was on purpose but, well you be the judge.

looks can be deceiving

look at this picture. what do you see? do you see the look of guilt or innocence in bailey's little face? it "appears" that bailey has been caught in the act of digging up the pea gravel. but don't be too quick to judge. looks can be deceiving...

actually, hubby is painting our house and he had to dig back the gravel to paint the wall, so it was his doing. bailey is innocent of all charges.
do you owe her an apology or did you believe in her innocence? BOL

splendor in the grass

the days are finally starting to cool off enough to enjoy our backyard again. we've had triple digit temps lately so even high 80's seem cool right now. yesterday we enjoyed some outside time, just relaxing in the shade.

shopping w/ doggies

when we were visiting daughter #1 in monterey, she took us to an antique store. (gotta love antique shopping.) when we got to the door, we saw the dreaded sign. "no dogs allowed". ugh! as we were discussing who would stay outside with the doggies, the man working there offered us one of their shopping carts! he said they just don't want dogs walking around and possibly wagging a tail and knocking something over but if they are contained, no problemo!
thank you nice man! now i will spend money in your store. BOL

keep doggies outta mischief by putting them in a shopping cart!
