I would like to introduce you to my furbaby (3rd child), Bailey:
My husband and I had a coffee shop in a strip mall with a pet store down the way from us. I was in the habit of bringing some of the puppies down to our store for the day for customers to play with. (and me) Bailey had been down for an afternoon as a 1lb, 8 week old puffball and I had returned her. When I went back to get her for someone that had asked to see her, she had been sold to a family (and I must have looked really sad...) When you bought a puppy from the store, they came with a free vet check and the family had taken her to the vet and discovered that she had a heart murmur and had returned her. The pet store owner brought her down to us and handed her over and said, here...she is yours :D...we fell head over heels for her!
This was in the middle of January with cold, windy snowstorms right and left.....the first time I took her out back of our store to go potty.....she weebled around and started to squat and just then a wind gust blew her across the lot about 3 feet.....I scooped her up and we then proceeded to litter box train her.....she did wonderful! and it has been so easy to take care of her. Our customers were in love with her too and thought she looked like Bailey's Irish Cream, hence her name :D!
Bailey came into our lives during a very rough period for us and has been such a comfort and loving presence in mine and my husband's life....I cannot believe what a blessing she has been....she goes everywhere with us and isn't happy unless she is within touching distance of one of us. She sleeps on a pillow next to our bed and her favorite spot while we are dressing, etc is on the quilt on our bed:
I hope you have enjoyed meeting our baby. We sure do love this little puffbutt.....
