Are you familiar with the little mermaid statue in Copenhagen, Denmark? She has been there over one hundred years now. Mom said Bailie reminds her of the little mermaid in this photo, just a bit furrier!
This photo is not the best, but it is the only half way decent one we have of the little mermaid. Mom has seen her five or six times, but her photos are either old or not real good. This one is from 2004. No matter, do you see a resemblance between the mermaid and Bailie?
Today, I’m joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop sponsored by BlogPaws! Don’t forget to stop by and visit some new blogs for fun!
Golden Daily Scoop says
What a cool statue but we have to admit Bailie is much cuter! 😉
Well, Bailie is about a hundred years younger too, LOL!
Ellen Shedlarz says
I remember getting lost at the Mermaid statue. I sure wish Bailie was there. She could helped me.
Oh dear, that’s not good. At least most Danes speak good English.
I think Bailie is so much cuter.
Definitely a softer look!
Two French Bulldogs says
You met the real mermaid! Holy seaweeds!!

My mom has. I never did, but I did touch my paws on Danish soil before moving back to the US.
absolutely!!! what a great post. So clever. And Bailie looks happy!! have a great day. your doodle friend Dash
Mom just looked at the photo and thought “mermaid”. Bailie was having a blast swimming in the creek. You can read about that adventure on Friday 🙂
Jess & Mini says
I do see a resemblance!
Luckily, Bailie isn’t green!
Great one Bailie, you nailed it!
She has become our very own mermaid.
absolutely!!! you are a beautiful mermaid Bailie… the mama said I’m more like a statue they have in brussel, the petit julien ;o)))
What? I thought Brussel only had Brussel sprout statues?
…they also have one who water the sprouts ;O)
I totally see a resemblance. But Baillie’s tongue is longer.
You make a very good point. The mermaid is a bit more refined.
M. K. Clinton says
Sailors are going to be telling the tale of Bailie the Mermaid for years! XXOO
Maybe canoe folks, since she was on a rock in a creek 😉

Miss Harper Lee says
Before long, busloads of tourists will be coming to see Bailie. You can parlay that into a treat fund. 🙂 Happy Wordless Wednesday!
Oh yes! We can finally make some cash with that girl!
Not only is Bailie furrier, she’s less green. 🙂
We’ll have to get her to pose after she helps with the lawn mowing so she is a bit green!
Jan K says
Oh yes, we love it! Very creative of your Mom to think of that. The only difference is the mermaid looks rather pensive, and Bailie just looks happy! 🙂
We think of Bailie as a more modern mermaid. A hundred years ago life was tough, so she probably wasn’t all that happy.
JeanneP of bichonpawz says
Definitely furrier, cuter, and much less green!! BOL!
Very true, but the do have similarities.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Melissa Lapierre says
She does! Bailie is much cuter though 🙂
The real mermaid is a famous piece of serious art. Bailie is more modern pop art, but they have similarities.
Kinley Westie says
Bailie does a good mermaid impression.
My momma LOVES mermaids. I think she is one since she spends so much time in da water. My middle name are even Arielle.
I guess water lovers would love mermaids. Your middle name is very pretty!
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Paws down – Bailey is much more attractive!
Much more lively too, LOL!
Pooch Smooches says
Oh so cute! And I do see the resemblance! And they’re both topless. 🙂 (I love mermaid lore!)
LOL! leave it to my sister to pose topless! My mom has always loved visiting the Danish mermaid.
Heather-loved and pampered pets says
This is a great one Balie! Every girl’s dream lol
Thankfully her back legs didn’t fuse together!
All Things Collie says
Did you see the recent picture of her? Someone dumped red paint all over her! Very sad.
Yes, that was awful. They have beheaded her too. People can be so awful!
AthenaWiseKitty (@AthenaWiseKitty) says
Nice statue and you look fantastic!
She was having a lot of fun in the creek that day.
We can definitely see the resemblance Bailie!!

It turned out to be a good accidental photo.
Dolly the Doxie says
I think this is the same statue mom saw in Vancouver, Stanley Island and it’s a replica. Love Dolly
That could be. It is very famous.
Cathy Armato says
I LOVE mermaids! They’re so ethereal and beautiful. I love seeing statues and artwork with mermaids on them. My favorite collar/leash sets I have for my dogs are the ones with a beautiful mermaid & seashell design. I’ve never seen this beautiful statue in Denmark, but I’d love to!
Love & Biscuits,

She is very famous and definitely worth seeing if you are in Copenhagen.
