And Then There Were 4...

Jeff and I have joked around about getting a second dog. We originally had two dogs picked out when we got Oakley, but decided that two little puppies at the same time would be too much to handle. So we only got Oakley and planned that we would get another dog once he was out of his puppy stage. This fall I saw this stinking cute puppy that was at a pet adoption and almost came home with it, but Jeff didn't want it. (He hadn't seen it.) I decided that I wanted a baby pet and I started in on wanting a kitty. Jeff hates cats. So of course he always told me no, which he never really does. Then it started to turn into if we get a cat then you have to take care of it. I felt like I was going to get my way and just was waiting till I found the one I wanted. I frequented the ksl ads multiple times a day. Never finding the one I had pictured in my head.
Jeff still wasn't convinced on getting another pet so he started to change the conversation to well what if we get a puppy instead. This was his plan all along, he never was going to let me get a kitty. I had always wanted a Christmas puppy, like on Lady and the Tramp when the cute little puppy jumps out of a box with a big red bow. Well two things wrong with this picture: 1.) puppies do not quietly stay in a box, ever. 2.) Its really hard to tie a bow and have it stay on a mischievous puppy or when Oakley is around. So instead I came home to a cute little puppy that came running to the door. She has been my lap dog ever since. (In fact she is fast asleep with her head on the computer right now.)
Some fun facts about Bailee
  • Her name was going to be Annie think Annie Oakley
  • She has many nicknames
    • Bai, Bailee Girl, little girl, tipper toes {the very tips of her back feet are white}, Fang {super sharp teeth}, stinker butt {she has really smelly farts}
  • She is absolutely fearless.
    • Most puppies are very caution, especially around big dogs and in new places. Bailee has challenged Oakley since day one and hasn't ever been afraid of our house.  She tackled the stairs from day one, at least going up. Down took some time, but mainly because she was so small.
  • She isn't too fond of the car. Oakley has loved the car since day one and its a forbidden word in our house as a result
  • She is really feisty in the morning and sometimes gets too rough with Oakley. Yepp, whenever their are cries from the dogs 90 percent of the time they are coming from Oakley. She bites his lip/ears/neck and then thrashes. If you tell her no and she doesn't like it she'll bark back as if to challenge you. Then you tell her again she'll sit down then run and hide in the kitchen or behind one of the couches.
  • She loves Oakley and has to know where he is at all times. At the park she spend the entire time trying to keep up with him and trying to keep up with him
  • She dances. She spins and jumps around all the time, especially for food. She now will do it on command. I'll get it on video soon and share.
  • Oakley never touched my shoes as a puppy....Bailee takes them every chance she can
  • She is smart and clever. She teases Oakley and sneaks up and stills whatever he has when he isn't looking. Oakley is going to have to learn to be more observant
  • She loves to cuddle if its her idea. She is always busy doing something
  • She is a great puppy and we are already completely in love with her.
The white on her back toes, is her tipped white toes.
She is really fast for being so little.
Getting warm in crazy cold weather.
She still wanted to play with Oakley, just needed some breaks to get warm again
Loves to give kisses
She has really big puppy dog eyes. She gets her way. ALOT.
Catching up to Oakley
Loves to dig in the snow...or anywhere for that fact
Nap time
They love each other
Needed a good pillow. Thanks brother
Being sneaky stilling wrapping paper on Christmas morning

Another bed hog of a dog. She is worse than Oakley ever was
Learning what it means to be potty trained by watching what Oakley does.
Another funny back sleeper. What is up with our dogs?

  1. NO WAY! Congratulations! I looooove getting a new puppy! There is something special about the black puppies too - I don't know what it is but a vet once told me that about Lucy and I couldn't agree more. How fun!
