Who could resist a face like this???

Well I sure couldn't, this is Bailey, my little rescue puppy. I'm a huge animal person, I love cats and dogs all the same. I don't have any children although I've always wanted them; it just wasn't in the cards for me. While I already had 4 cats, I wanted a dog to add to my family. I was torn between getting an adult dog or puppy. My reasoning for an adult dog is they are usually harder to place but on the other hand I had to think about my cats and I was worried an adult dog possibly attacking them. I had my heart set on meeting an adult dog that I had found on Petfinders, I was told she seemed fine around cats, but just a few days before meeting her I got a call saying that they had found her original owner. Needless to say I was a little sad but happy that she was reunited with her family. Once again, back on Petfinders searching for a dog/puppy in need of a family, I found her. We had to drive 4 hours round trip to meet the cutie and she was worth every minute. Well Bailey will be 1 year old in a few weeks and I can't imagine my life without her. I was inspired to write this after reading a post from the Decorated House blog. Please check out her story and the organization

This time of the year we tend to think of people in need, but those furry little friends need our help as well, so please donate to your favorite pet charity/rescue center to help a animal in need.
BAILEY AND OUR FAMILY WISH EVERYONE A SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAY

  1. Hi Trixie & Bailey!
    Oh Bailey was the cutest puppy! Oh you now she was just waiting for you like Cody was waiting for my Sweet Daughter. She was looking for a grown rescue dog just like you, but these pups just find us don't they?

    Thank you for posting about Bernie's rescue efforts.

    Wishing you the most Wonderful Merry Christmas!
    Donna, and Cody, too.

  3. How SWEET! My furry kids are from the pound and are my sweetest finds ever! The cats are now 15 and counting. Not a day goes by where I don't appreciate and love them sooo very much.

  5. Very sweet post! My pug is also a rescue dog - she's a bit quirky, but an amazing pet & child.
