Meet Da Pack -- Day Three

Before I introduce you to Bailey,
I wants to thank Brian
for dis Awesome Award...

I will tells seven more tings bout
me on a future posty.

On dis postee I would likes to introduce
everyones to anudder one of my pack mates...

I will give da Momma one more chance to tell
you 'bout Bailey.
It's all yours, Mom!
Mom Here:

Bailey is a 12-year-old Jack Russell Terror Terrier.  She joined our family in early 2006. 

Bailey originally lived with our daughter and her family (as did Reno).  She had two other Jack Russell pack mates....Jack and Sadie.  Jack departed for Rainbow Bridge in 2005 leaving Bailey and Sadie behind.  When Jack was gone, Sadie became aggressive toward Bailey.  We feel that she was feeling insecure without her friend, Jack, and began to cling to our daughter and started to see Bailey as a threat to that relationship.  We decided it would be best to remove Bailey for her own safety.

Bailey seemed to flourish with the change and settled right into our home.  Of course, the transition was easy as we already had three of Bailey and Jack's daughters living with us.  Bailey had two litters of pups with Jack while living with our daughter.  Her first litter in 2000 consisted of nine puppies.  Our daughter gave us two of the puppies as a Christmas present that year.  Their names are Sarah and Holly and you will meet them in a later post.  The third daughter born to Bailey and Jack is named Jennie and was born in late 2004.  Jennie was very tiny and no one was interested in purchasing a pup that small.  So this time it was my hubby that decided he wanted to bring Jennie home as well.

Bailey is extremely active for a 12-year-old.  In fact, out of our family of 11, Bailey is probably the most energetic of all of them and is a very good specimen of the Jack Russell breed ... always on the move and bouncing off the walls.  In picking out some pictures of Bailey for this post, I had a hard time finding pictures that didn't include a ball.  It's very rare to see Bailey without a ball or toy nearby.

Bailey is also a very good swimmer and loves to spend time in the pool.  Diving in for her balls is her favorite pool activity and she can keep this up for hours if we allow her to.  The person throwing the ball into the pool is more apt to get tired before she does.  And when there isn't anyone available to toss the ball, she'll drop it in one end of the pool herself and then run to the other side and dive in to get it.

I will now turn the post back to Amber.

Dis would be

We are so happy to meet Bailey - she sure loves her balls, doesn't she? And she is so cute too. We meet a Jack Russell on our walks, but he doesn't like us at all. He comes charges across the street at us and Mom has to hold on really tight so he doesn't get too close. We bet Bailey would be a lot nicer to us.

You are so lucky to have that nice pool. Bet it comes in handy when it gets really warm.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Elyse and Riley said...

Bailey's a hoot jumping in the pool like that! She reminds me of Riley in the regards that she always has to have a ball near her.

Sorry about us not having an e-mail address on our blog...I guess I should remedy that soon! And thanks for your kind words and thoughts for little Chloe.
