Three years ago today, the world was blessed with the arrival of fourteen healthy, GBGV puppies, one of which turned out to be my little sister Bailie. There were ten girls and four boys. Mom remembers reading about the litter on Facebook, but she was determined not to comment or like posts because she knew if she did, she would want one of the puppies. Can you guess what happened? Yep, she couldn’t resist, and in the end Bailie became part of our family. Happy Birthday to all fourteen pups!
If your math is good, you would know last June 14th, Bailie turned two. She was starting to feel fancy and insisted on a much fancier party. We had a discussion about her cake and decided on pupcakes which turned out real tasty. Her birthday was a big success again as she entered into the terrible twos filled with exploding beds and pillows.
Today our little Purple Girl is turning three. How time cruises by! Bailie says party hats are for puppies and insisted on a birthday crown instead. To compliment her crown, she had to wear a purple boa. Bailie seems to be really getting into her own style when it comes to what to wear these days.
So far it’s been a good birthday week. Bailie went to the Pet Expo where she got to choose a new antler for herself, and she got a mani/pedi.
Bailie also attended her first baseball game. Well, it was just little league, but still it was her first ball game of any kind. She said it was rather boring.
While I was at my spa appointment yesterday, Bailie got a one on one walk with Mom at one of our favorite local parks, Lebanon Hills. It was a perfect day for a walk.
Tomorrow, Mom is taking Bailie to a tracking seminar with a working spot. Bailie is all excited to learn more about tracking which is her very favorite sport. I’m thrilled I don’t have to go! Last but not least, Bailie is signed up for a three week Obstacle Skills class in August. I wonder what tricks she will learn?
I’ve been busy baking her cake, and she has some other gifts waiting for her. Follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for updates on Bailie’s birthday all day today. I’ll have another blog post next week about her special day. For now, I wish my little sister a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
As for Katie, she isn’t doing well, but she wouldn’t want us to sit around and be sad when there was a birthday to celebrate. We are spending some time with Katie when she is awake and are letting Bailie enjoy her birthday.
