I never saw anything like this before. … More Rainbow without the rain
We are at the Vet’s now. Will update. UPDATE: Bailey and I were walking along in our neighborhood, when a Bull Dog came running out at us. The Bull Dog was wearing his collar and leash. (The dog sitter was told: He can’t go out without a leash!) Yes, but a person should be attached … More Bailey got attacked by a Bull Dog
It’s not what you think! It’s a night guard for my teeth, because apparently I grind my teeth in my sleep. I don’t remember grinding, but I do wake up with a sore mouth. Also, by looking at my dental x-rays, it was determined that the right side of my mouth is “filed down.” I … More I have a new bedtime companion #nightguard #tuesdaythoughts
I brought Bailey to PetMart yesterday to get his nails trimmed. He was starting to look Howard-Hughes-ish and needed those nails clipped. As usual, I bribed him with cheese to get him into the car. When we took a turn at the intersection, he realized we were not on the way to his friend Georgie’s … More Bailey’s Christmas Miracle
We are moved into the new house. Actually, our stuff is here, but since it’s still in boxes, I don’t know where most things are. I went back to the apartment to clean, and hired cleaners to help me. It’s in pretty good shape now. I just need to put the garbage out for collection. … More We’re In!
When telling a story, it’s best to start at the beginning, but if you can’t find the beginning just start in the middle. There’s never a dull moment in the Porter household. Just ask Bailey: He’s not bored; he’s exhausted. It’s a lot of work shedding fur all over the rug. He wore himself out. … More Let’s start in the middle
Bailey will be making more guest appearances on my blog, and he should have his own avatar. Help me choose the right one! Which picture do you think is best? A. B. C.
Bailey needs a little quiet time, so he grabbed his stuffed monkey and took him to his bed with him. I guess we all need to hide behind the curtain sometimes.
Bailey says, “You’ll love the taste within 2 licks or your money back.”
I couldn’t help laughing at Bailey today when I saw him voluntarily putting his head between the two couches. I guess he hasn’t run out of silly ideas yet. Here is the side view: I don’t know how he comes us with these positions.
At 4:45 am, the Jogger Meister clods through the neighborhood, waking up any resident foolish enough to have his window open on a cool summer night. It is said that the Jogger Meister is ex-military, so he is used to waking up early and beginning his day. We, his neighbors, like to wait at least … More The Jogger Meister
Bailey had to spend a few days in the Kennel while Mr. Porter and I went out of town to consult with surgeons for my upcoming mastectomy. When I arrived at the Kennel to pick Bailey up, he did the usual doggie happy dance. But now that we are home, I think he just wants … More Do I look comfy to you? (third in the continuing series)
Most of us decide that January is the time to get back on the bike and try again, but I held out until February. Well, ok, it took me that long to talk myself into it. Here in the Northeast we have been getting hammered with snow and cold-cold-cold temperatures. Who wants to get up … More I finally went back to the gym today
So many people have commented on how much they enjoy Bailey posts, that I thought I would turn it over to him again today. I took some new pictures today, and I will throw in some old pics, and I’ll let him tell you more, since you like hearing from him also! ~ Mom aka … More Bailey’s excellent photo shoot
I was finally able to get a picture of Bailey in this somewhat strange position. His back end is going one way, and his front end is going the other way, and he puts his paw over his face! He does look cute, but I am trying to figure out how this could be comfy. … More Do I look comfy to you?
I was told that today is National Dress Up Your Pet Day. So here’s Bailey. The hat was on sale because I got it after Christmas. Bailey still doesn’t like it. I gave him a treat, but it didn’t make him any happier.
I wanted to find the thumb tack before my dog stepped on it. I was arranging my bulletin board and getting rid of the 2013 calendar when a thumb tack fell to the floor. I thought it was one of the white ones and assumed it would be easy to find on the carpet. I … More God and the Thumb Tack
The weather outside is frightful. If you live in the Northeastern US, this is not a news bulletin. Bailey is snug as a spoiled pup in my good blanket. He doesn’t like going out into the snow, because it gets his feet wet. You know how we hate to have wet socks, it feels yucky–I … More Bailey says, “Let it snow”
Mom is working on her blog about the Federal Reserve. She has been mumbling under her breath a lot. She is fact-checking and looking for pictures. And mumbling under her breath. A lot. What is the Creature from Jekyll Island, Mom? I never heard of that. It sounds scary! Don’t worry Mom! I’ll protect you! … More Mom will be Unplugged Today, so I am filling in — Love Bailey
