What We Like :)


Jax and I like a lot of things, but we’re both very different. Check out our list below!

Bailey loves:

  • Eating: Food (both dog food & human food, especially cheese & ice cream! But not really lettuce — can’t figure it out). I LOVE eating grass, but sometimes it gives me a tummy ache.
  • Running: Since I’m part Belgian Shepherd, I feel the need to run…like 90% of the time! Sometimes at night I start to run around the house like crazy…good thing my family notices and opens the door so I can run around out back. Then I come in and have a nice long nap!
  • Sleeping next to doors: Yeah, I like a good door to cozy up to. I no longer have a huge crate to sleep in, so sleeping on my big doggie bed and next to closet doors have become my new favorites.
  • Drinking water: I LOVE water! I love drinking it, playing in it, eating, licking and playing with ice cubes…anything that has to do with water, I’m there.
  • Playing with Nala: I LOVE playing with my sister — I especially love when she chases me. She’s pretty fast and she used to catch me all the time, but now that I’m bigger she can’t keep up as well. But she keeps up pretty well for being 15 years old (she’ll be 16 in Nov. 2014)!
  • My human family: If one of them goes into another room, I have to follow them. Good thing the house has lots of doors. πŸ˜‰
  • Rolling on the floor: I like to spin in circles, too!
  • DIGGING!! Check out my posts about digging and my digging videos. πŸ™‚

Jax Facts:

  • At 2 months old, Jax was 10.7 lbs. The rescue organization gave him the name “Mojo,” which happens to rhyme with our hamster’s name, “JoJo! He won’t get nearly as big as me (currently 66.4 lbs!), but he might get to be about 45-50 lbs (Nala was at least 30 lbs when she was her biggest). NOPE! We don’t think Jax will even reach 30 lbs. We have bets going to see how big he’ll get. O_o
  • Jax was born November 19, the DAY AFTER Nala (November 18). Jax also happens to look a little like me.
  • At 2 & 1/2 months, he was 12.8 lbs.
  • At 3 months, 1 week old, Jax was 16.2 lbs. The doctor thinks he’ll definitely be under 40 lbs. YEP! When I was 3 months old, I was already 30 lbs!
  • Jax is finally learning how to ring the potty bell to let us know he has to go out. At just 13 weeks, it was still hard for him to hold it for long, but he tried!
  • Jax barks when asked to TALK! He doesn’t have a strong bark yet (and doesn’t really bark much at all), but when he does it’s really cute and high-pitched and lots of times he sounds like Chewbacca from Star Wars. We should have named him Chewie.
  • Jax is scared of loud noises (passing trucks, motorcycles, trains, thunder, mowers, people talking in the distance, etc). He bolts toward the house, even if he has to go potty. Unlike me, he tends to hold it in when he’s scared. I don’t have that problem! Teehee!
  • Mommy washed Nala’s Thundershirt, and it shrunk just enough that it fits Jax PERFECTLY. It never worked for Nala, but we think it does help Jax a little. Anything to make him less afraid is OKAY with me. πŸ™‚
  • He would rather curl up with me in one of my big beds, rather than sleep alone in his little bed. Though he does like that too. πŸ™‚
  • He really does look fierce sometimes.
  • At 6 months old, Jax is 25.8 lbs. He still prefers to lay near on me, and sometimes I let him.
  • At 11pm it’s ‘sleepy time,’ and Jax knows it’s no more play time. He’s really good about sleeping through the night. πŸ™‚
  • At 6 months old, Jax had a Double Pelvic Osteotomy on both hips.
  • At 7 months old (June 19, 2015), Jax is 25.5 lbs.

My Nala used to love (16 yrs old, Nov 1998-Jan 2015):

  • Eating cheese: Yep, I can say for sure that this is Nala’s favorite food. She’ll practically do anything for cheese! Oh, and she likes ice cream a lot too.
  • Sleeping: Not sure if she likes to do it, but she seems to do this more than I do.
  • Chasing me: I know she loves this! Sometimes I think she would chase me more, but she gets tired too fast. πŸ™
  • Riding in the car: Nala LOVES going in the car, whether it’s a long trip or just out to the store. I’m starting to get used to car trips, but they’re still not my favorite thing to do.
