Arrival Story: We had an American Eskimo a number of years ago and when it passed away, we did not replace it for about 5 years. 1 1/2 years ago we started to talk about getting another dog and wanted another American Eskimo and started looking for a breeder. It was hard to find one in Central Illinois but we did locate one and that is where we got Bailey.
Bio: We have had Bailey since she was 8 weeks old and she adds so much fun to our lives. She has so much personality. She has been to puppy and intermediate obedience classes and now she is in agility class. She goes to Doggy Day Care twice a week and to another one each week where she gets to play with other dogs.
Today mom brought Daddy home. He went into the hospital on 2/28 and was there for about 5 days and then had to go stay somewhere else for physical therapy. Even though I got to visit him, it was not the same at home without him being there. I was so happy to see him today and I am sitting nice and close to him.
Thanks to everyone that sent wishes for Daddy to get well. We really appreciate it and apologize if we have not been thanking everyone personally. We have not had too much time at home lately and hope to get more caught up now.
Daddy is out of the hospital and he is staying at a facility where he is getting physical therapy to get him ready to come home. Today mom brought me to visit him and I was his emotional therapy dog. I did not recognize the place we were going to but I am excited to go anywhere (except the vet)
We went upstairs to the second floor and into a room and there was daddy! I was so happy to see him. I jumped up to be on the bed with him and he was happy to see me too. I stayed for awhile and then mom took me to doggy day care so she could go back and spend the day with daddy since she did not work today.
If daddy stays there next week, I will go back and visit again. He misses me.
I have been staying with Tracy and Bonnie because Daddy had 2 falls at home and has been in the hospital since Friday night. We are trying to keep up our Dogster stuff but if you don't see me every day it is because we are busy trying to get Daddy well and home again.
