Bailie has been living with us for a couple months now, the weather wasn’t the best today, so I decided it would be a great time to lie down and interview her. She thought it would be fun, so we got started.
Emma: Thank you for letting me interview you Bailie.
Bailie: No problem, I like to do just about anything you are doing.
Emma: What is up with that any way? No matter what I do or where I go, you are like a shadow. Grrr…
Bailie: I think you are so cool, I want to be just like you, so I’m trying to be a mini you! Arrooooo!
Emma: Do you see that pile of toys you have here and you have even more scattered about the house. Why do you have so many toys?
Bailie: I love toys. They are fun to chew on, some of them make fun noises, some of them I can even chase, like the balls.
Emma: So, are you happy here at our house or would you rather go back and live with your parents and other thirteen brothers and sisters?
Bailie: I want to stay here for sure. Life is good, I have two fun doggy sisters, two cats to chase around, Mom spoils me and we get to do lots of fun stuff. I’m a happy puppy! Woof, woof!
Emma: You are a pretty good puppy, very mellow, not getting into much trouble. Why is that?
Bailie: I learn a lot from you and Katie. At first I thought you both were totally boring, but now I see that you are just quiet types, and wanting to fit in, I’m now a quiet type too.
Emma: Do you have any big goals set for your life yet?
Bailie: Actually, I do. My first thing is that I am determined to capture that red dot. Big sigh…
Emma: What are you talking about?
Bailie: Sometimes when it is dark outside this red dot appears and I chase it. I chase it around the house, out in the yard, all over. I haven’t been able to catch it yet, but I am determined. I think Mom has something to do with it, but I haven’t figured it out yet.
Emma: How is dog school going for you? Why aren’t you top of the class like I was? Grrr…
Bailie: Well, Emma, I behave at home and that is where it really counts. At school everyone has treats. I love food, so I figure why not just try to get all the food I can at school and be obedient at home. I mean I learn my lessons, just would rather sniff out food at school.
Emma: Why do you keep biting and pulling on my ears? You know that hurts and it is getting on my nerves, you are getting some real teeth you know!
Bailie: You don’t always pay attention to me, so I do that to get you to play with me. I don’t understand why you don’t always want to play with me? Your ears are fun toys to pull on too!
Emma: You are such a food focused dog! Will you ever stop worrying about food?
Bailie: If you had to share with 13 other puppies, you would be the same way. Mom says I am improving, and I know we share well here at home, but I still like to get all the food I can, just to be safe.
Emma: How about our cat bro Bert? What is the deal with the two of you? Woof, woof!
Bailie: He is always trying to be the boss of me, so I just chase him and never let him win any battles. He is kind of fun to play with. I especially love it that Mom has me hunt him down when he tries to run outside. It is like tackle football with a cat!
Emma: You still don’t have your full big dog fur coat. Do you think you will freeze outside with us in Minnesota snow and cold?
Bailie: I might not be able to stay out as long as you and Katie this winter. Mom will have to monitor me to make sure I’m not too cold. great products to keep a pup warm There are also some great products to keep a pup warm that she could buy for me.
Emma: Do you think you will like the nose work and tracking classes Mom is planning on taking you to?
Bailie: My nose is really good, and I love sniffing, so I think I will do really well. You are going to do nose work classes with me I was told, but I will try tracking on my own first. I love following a scent! Arrroooo!
Emma: My last question is: how did it feel flushing your first wabbit out from under the bushes the other day? Huge congratulations, by the way! Pant, pant, pant…
Bailie: Oh my dog! That was the biggest moment of my GBGV life so far! I can’t wait to find more of those wabbits! I’m sure that you and I will have lots of fun teaming up to find and capture them!
Emma: Thanks for barking about stuff with me.
Bailie: No problem, but now it is time for my nap. I’m still a puppy that needs lots of sleep. ZZzzzzz…
On a side note: Starting December 1st, I will be co-hosting, along with several other bloggers, the Kol’s Notes “Advent Calendar for Dog Lovers” that has fun giveaways planned for each day of Advent. This will be my first time, and I am really excited to be part of such a fun holiday event!
