Bailey refers to herself as the Queen! I just received her license renewal from the county and her breed is marked as English Hound. I don’t know who she bribed at the county, but I am pretty sure she is from the deep south…not Buckingham Palace!
Yesterday I had to save the Queen’s Life. While eating dinner she choked on a piece of dog food (just another reason Riley insists on eating human food) in the kitchen. Luckily I was in the kitchen while she was eating and as she gasped for air I was able to help get the food out of her throat. I knew it was bad because as she was choking Rufus started taking food off of her plate and she didn’t go after him. Rufus never misses an opportunity to take advantage of a situation.
Once she was able to breathe I got her a fresh plate of food. The good news–she is fine. The bad news–now that I “saved her life” she is following me around everywhere. Last night she slept on top of me in the bed with her paws on my chest. I already have two stage 5 clingers in this house…I really hope she goes back to her independent self today!
