Woof! What’s all this about?

BaileyHi! My name is Bailey! I’m a Shepherd/Leonberger Mix girl doggie! I haven’t had it as rough as some rescue pups have. Read more about me below.

It all started when one day, a kind man found my furry mom wandering the streets and brought her to a rescue organization. Soon after, my two furry sisters and I arrived into the world and they needed to find new homes for all of us. A really great family came to visit me and my sisters in September, 2010 when I was 3 months old, and wouldn’t you know it — they chose me! I went home with them that same day, and things haven’t been the same since! Read Nala’s and my story, and about my relationship with Nala.

NalaCan you guess why I named my site, “Bailey Be Good?” I hear my family say that to me A LOT! Stick with me [TASTY STICK!] as I share the little bit of craziness that I bring to my new family…they certainly didn’t know what they were getting themselves into when they chose me! My new family already had a dog when I moved in… her name is Nala, and she was an almost 12-year-old American Eskimo mix when I moved in. She may be my new older sister, but we’ll just see who rules the house now… πŸ˜›

My mommy helped me start my site in December, 2010 — I was just 6 months old. My site is family-friendly. This means that my site is safe for children. I would like to very much keep it this way, so I will only link to other family-friendly sites. If you happen to have a non-family-friendly website and submit a comment to my blog, I will sadly have to remove it. It’s not personal… it’s just the right thing to do to keep my site safe for children. πŸ™‚

About the photos on my site: I’m glad to say that my human sister, Taylor, takes many of the photos on my site. My mommy takes the rest. Please do not take them or use them on your site or anywhere else without asking first. Besides not being nice, it’s against the law to do that. πŸ™‚

I’ll be updating Bailey’s Blog daily, and adding ARFicles (with my 2 biscuits)…games, photos & videos, and lots of other stuff (like posters, and cool stuff with my name on it).

My hu-sister has a few names on my bloggie (like HS for Hu-Sis, and MT), but mostly you’ll see me referring to her as Taylor. πŸ™‚


2-27-15: Me, Jax & JoJo. Sadly, we lost poor JoJo in October, 2016. She was 2 years old. πŸ™

1-17-15: Welcome Jax!

1-10-15: Goodbye Sweet Nala. <3 2-27-14: I’m taking sort of a break for a bit. My mommy’s mommy passed away today, from stage 4 melanoma. It’s definitely gonna take Mommy time to just be okay, and I need to help her as much as I can. Thanks for not forgetting us during this time. Big huggies to you. πŸ™‚

May 2013 Mommy and me may not be responding much — we’re preoccupied ’cause my hu-grandma (my mommy’s mommy), was recently diagnosed with the bad C word… again (stage 4 this time). I try and schedule posts ahead of time, but it’s not easy. Mommy can’t concentrate much on drawing… though commissions do help keep her mind off real life stuff. Please follow my RSS Feed to be notified of recent posts! [UPDATE: My wonderful hu-grandma passed away in February, 2014. My mommy & I have not been back here full time since then, but she does post on Facebook & Instagram. Won’t you please follow us there?]

You could also find me on Pinterest.
