Meet Bailey

Playing house with my sweatheart.  For a two-year-old, she has quite the imagination.  For example, just this morning I had to take her to the dr for pink-eye....And while we were waiting at the doctor's office back in the room, we played catch together with an imaginary ball.  We would throw high...and low.  We'd catch the ball two handed and one handed.  And let me tell you, she was good.....didn't drop the ball once.
There once was two dogs who lived across the street from my parents.  One was nice, and the other was mean.  Both were hungry because their owner could not afford to feed them.  The mean one, I could do nothing about....but the sweet 6 month old little girl, I was willing to take, and adopt, and love.  So introducing our new dog.....Bailey. (She's the one on the left)
So on Saturday, after Sissy's tumbling class..... I picked out her clothes, she picked out her shoes....then we headed to Walmart to pick up dog supplies and then over to get Bailey and bring her home.
We decided....due to the expense of buying a pen outside, that we would keep Bailey as an inside dog.
We aren't completely sure what kind of dog she is just yet.  Definitely a mix of things....but that leaves you wondering how big she is going to get.  She sure looks comfortable cuddled up with Mr. G.
She was wore out.
Her first night in her new home was interesting.  I had yet to fall asleep and as protocol I went around to check on each kiddo.  Of course, Sissy G was not in her bed, but at the foot of Bubby's bed.
And Bailey was asleep....actually, under our bed.  (Note: the nice comfortable dog bed we had bought her sitting unused in the corner)
But by midnight....after several incidences....Bailey became an outside dog.  We put her on an outdoor lead at midnight thinking she would be fine.  Woke up the next morning and she was by our back door wanting in.  She had slipped out of her collar.  The next night we tried putting her in our garage....and she once again managed to get out and was by our back door come morning.
Needless to her new $250 pen.  Not at all what Mr. G and I had in mind.  Looks like we won't be eating out for the rest of the year in order to make up for it.  But at least she is happy and safe and....
Every morning Bubby G wakes up and asks to go outside with Bailey.  He loves running around with her and playing with her.  I think they will be buddies for a very long time.  Sissy loves Bailey too, but gets a bit tired of Bailey knocking her over.  We are still working on the "staying down" and not jumping up training with Bailey.
Look at this lil bruiser conked out at Sunday dinner.
Sportin' his Cardinal bib in hopes of a Cards win vs. the Cubs in the playoffs. (Didn't work)
The kiddos working on crafts in the living room before bed.
Happy boy enjoying this beautiful fall weather.
You just never know where you will find Sissy G sleeping.  She goes 100 miles an hour and then will all of a sudden just drop.
This one was taken about 2am.  She must've gone to the couch at some point to do some light reading and ended up conking out.  I have a feeling this girl will always keep me on my toes, but I love her for it.
