Notes from the Shop Dogs!Bailey in car.jpg

Hi!  For those of you who don't know me, my name is Bailey.  I'm the Top Dog at Quilter's Emporium.  I have an important job!  Sometimes I greet customers, sometimes I hunt for threads on the floor, and sometimes I play with staff and shop guests.  Mostly though, I stay close to Mama and keep her happy--very important!  After all, I'm pretty darn cute and I'm always looking for a photo op! 

I was 'dopted through Yorkie Rescue Houston.  I don't remember much about my life before I met Mom and Pop, but I don't think it was very nice.  But my life now ROCKS!  They love and cuddle me all the time and I love them very much!  I also love my little sister Katey (who is running in the grass), who was rescued throught SafeHouse Rescue.  Katey is actually known as "Katey-No"...for reasons that might be obvious.  We love her anyway!

We have a brother named Eddie that was found looking through a trash can for something to eat - right on our street, so he is a rescue too!  Mama had to chase him around the neighborhood all day long, but she finally got him!  I don't know who was more tired!  But he was pretty healthy but very raggedy looking.  He was very, very skinny and I think was pretty happy to be rescued.  He is now my brother and best friend.  We tell each other everything!  Here he is wearing a t-shirt and I think he really likes it!  He really digs being part of our family now.

Then we have our newest sister, Joanie!  She was 'dopted through Camo Rescue!  She was bonded to another dog that was with her, but the other pup didn't make it.  She was so unhappy when her buddy passed away, she stopped eating.  But somehow she started eating again, thanks to her good foster parents.  She joined us a couple of summers ago and we all just love her.  Her picture is on the right and it shows her at the shop door.

Licks and kisses,
Your pals, Bailey, Eddie, 
Katey-No and Joanie
