Its been over a month since our beautiful boy, Bailey, entered our home and straight into our hearts. I’ve attached a recent picture of him so you can see just how adorable he is. He’s a bundle of energy, this chap, loves his chew toys, long walks, and is always up to play ‘fetch’, anytime of the day. I’m still his favourite person, by the way, although, with me recently starting work again, he probably spends more time with Derek over the last few days. Its also amazing how highly intelligent he is. He picked up several commands and tricks, very quickly which includes not eating anything until given the ‘Good boy, Eat’ command..
I have to say though that its not been all that easy on our two cats, Smokie and Simba. While Bailey simply adores the fact that he has these special ‘playthings’ around in the house, we have had to be especially careful and still maintain our guard all the time as we haven’t quite figured out a way to control him chasing after them in hot pursuit, as yet. He knows that we are not at all happy with him when he does that plus I think he’s already associated getting put on leash inside the house, right after as he sits and waits for us to put him on lead right after these incidents happen. Guess its a matter of time and patience. You should see how his face goes all droopy and sad when we say …. Bailey, ‘NO’ or ask him to ‘sit’ or ‘stay’ in a gruff voice.
Take care and all the Best,
