All Bailey, All the Time

We interrupt the regular scheduled training updates with a Bailey update!  Enjoy!

Bailey now has a new favorite activity – playing in the sprinklers.

A very wet and very fluffy Bailey after playing in the sprinkler.  He was sort of pissed when they automatically shut off on him.  He wasn’t done playing.

I bought Bailey this bowl in Madison.  It says Swim Bark Run on the side of it.  How perfect is that?

Bailey was super intrigued by the pool we bought earlier this month.  He
seemed to think it was the world’s largest water bowl.

Even Bailey needs to soak his paws after a run.  He was so content just soaking it in.

We took Bailey to the Reeds Lake Art Festival a few weeks ago.  This was the biggest crowd
Bailey had ever been in and he did great.  He even took a dip in Reeds Lake at the boat launch.

    Love the pics! Thanks for sharing! We saw the swim, bark, run gear at Steelhead last year and I wanted to get it so bad, but they only had harnesses =(

    Love it. I bet you could have watched that for hours and been so entertained. It’s awesome how the smallest things in life keep us so happy.

    Scooby, my beast of a boxer (110lbs), loves playing in sprinklers too. For real fun, throw some ice cubes in the pool. Scooby won’t stop till he gets them all! Oh, and I love the food bowl.

      110lb!?!!? That is like 2+ Bailey’s!! (he’s like 45lbs or so). I’ll have to throw some ice cubes his way next time. Anything to keep him burning off his energy.

    So cool to watch Bailey’s change in character. He started off super timid and by the end of the video he was the MASTER of the sprinkler.

    Hahaha love it.

    I bet he has webbed paws… typically “water dogs” or hunting type dogs LOVE WATER. Frankie hates swimming… but loves drinking any water he can find haha.

    Glad Bailey does well in crowds!

      Webbed paws indeed. We can’t wait to get him to the big lake to try swimming. The way he likes the sprinkler, I think he is going to go crazy with the waves. He swam a bit at the boat launch but his legs are so damn long that he had to be deeper than I wanted to go before his feet were off the ground.

    Finally! Some Bailey pictures! 🙂

    I loved the sprinkler video. I saw it on Jenny’s blog and laughed my butt off. I love the swim bark run bowl. Also it is so funny how much he loves water!!

    Very cool by the way he is good in crowds. I had no doubt dogs with that name tend to be pretty cool. 😉

    Bailey is a cool pup. My Maglee loves sprinklers too. She doesn’t like big crowds, but it looks like your dog did great. Thanks for the update.

    Oh my goodness… he’s soooo cute! I love that he’s such a fan of the water! And that food bowl is great!
