Meet our Bailey



Today I am linking to Karen's blog, Sew Many Ways. She is having a "share your pet" linking party to celebrate her dog Annie's birthday.


This is Bailey, a 12 year old Springer Spaniel we adopted from ESRA- English Springer Rescue about 3 years ago.  This is a wonderful organization that finds foster homes and forever homes for surrendered and abandoned Springers. Check out their site- it is amazing to see how widespread and dedicated this group is. So far, we have only worked with them this one time, but I continue to check in on the site to see the pictures and read success stories.


Our Bailey came to us from a very nice lady in Pensacola, FL who had to give him up to transition into assisted living.  She and her husband got him as a puppy the day they retired.  They took very good care of him and sent all his papers, vet history and even his diploma from puppy training school!  I could tell in her notes how hard it was to part with her dear pet, so we keep in touch and send pictures a few times a year. 
 

Trying on his life vest- getting ready for vacation!

I am sure all the quilter's out there can relate to this one...


Can't wait to help lay out quilt blocks!

  
Thanks for stopping by!  Can't wait to see every one's pets and read their stories-

Happy Birthday Annie!

  1. Nice post. I'm 62 and ready to retire this year. My Junior is 10. I worry about getting another dog. My neighbor always said she didn't want her dog to outlive her. I understand that thinking and your Bailey if very lucky and a treasure.

  2. What a great story and I'm so happy you gave him a home. It has to be hard on both his people and him. I'm so glad you continue to keep in touch. He's beautiful, you're both very lucky.

  3. Bailey is adorable! I love that last picture of him laying on the floor as you lay out the quilt. I can only imagine what his is thinking about.
