@ 8 months: Show me your war face

Looking vicious: Bailey and Jay.

They both love the snow...romping in it, nosing in it, eating it, wrestling in it.

After more than half-an-hour, they still want more.

@ 8 months: Bailey luvs rugs

Bailey luvs rugs, period. This rug comes from my in-laws. He has one just like it at their place. As soon as it arrived, he sniffed it enthusiastically, laid down on it, gave it a bit of a thrashing, and proceeded to make it his favorite spot in the living room.

@ 8 months: Bailey luvs suitcase beds

We were packing for Thanksgiving and an open suitcase got placed in a spot where we usually put Bailey's pet bed. Bailey immediately climbed in and started to get cozy. We laughed, he got confused as to why we were making such a big fuss and got out of the suitcase, but then we put him back in the suitcase, and then we took pictures (yes, these photos are somewhat staged).

We would have liked to bring him, but while sleeping inside a suitcase is probably fun, traveling inside of one probably is not. Instead, he got to stay with my in-laws and he had a grand old time that weekend.

@ 8 months: Bailey luvs his new skull recycled rug

Bailey prefers to lay down on rugs than on our hardwood floors. So at this year's DIY Trunk Show in Chicago's Pulaski Park Auditorium, we bought this lovely rug for Bailey from: Emily Kircher, Recycling Artist. She recycles fabric, china/ceramics, bottlecaps, and other materials into rugs, mosaic works, and bottlecap accessories. You can learn more at her blog, and purchase items at her Etsy storefront. And if you're new to Etsy, learn about it here.

Bailey strikes a GQ pose.
If I were a real photographer, I would have moved the bags of dog food and the Crate and Barrel bag out of the background.

GQ Bailey #2.

We couldn't get a good GQ Bailey pose that also showcased the nice skull, so here is Bailey making a quizzical face. Anyway, Visit Emily's site, and perhaps Bailey may make an appearance there as well.
