Bailey actually goes to bed on most nights before Eric and I. I got him so used to going to bed around 10 P.M. and now he is stuck to the routine even though I have changed mine. Originally I was going to bed early in order to wake up early to work out in the mornings before heading off to work. I really should get back into the routine, but that’s another story.
I think in another life, Bailey was a horder. He has this way of gathering all his toys around him in the room. At the moment those toys include a goose who has lost all of his stuffing thanks to Bailey, a monkey which was a birthday present, a sting ray from our vacation to Myrtle Beach, and finally a rope, which he is currently holding on to.
When it’s time for us to go to bed, Bailey thinks that is the most ideal time to play. So he gathers all of his toys in one spot and follows us around with toys in his mouth.
How could anyone deny this face? That is his secret weapon: his cuteness. He pulls out those puppy eyes (even though he will be three this week) and heaven help anyone that could resist that face. It’s very obvious by the amount of toys this dog owns that we are not able to resist his cuteness.
When Bailey finally realizes that playtime is over and that we are actually getting ready for bed, he jumps back into bed for some snuggle time.
Bailey only snuggles three times a day: when you wake up, when you get home from work, and when it’s time for bed. Otherwise, good luck getting him to sit still without a toy in his mouth.
Tonight I’m going to try and record his reaction to us coming home from work. He is definitely sassy. Just wait and see. 🙂
