I know I know I shouldn't have a favorite but I have to say that Baily is my heart dog :) She came from rescue at just 7 weeks of age (too young but she was dumped). I took her to work with me everyday. She would sleep under my desk and then we would go to the big dog park behind the office. Alaska dog parks are not what people are used to when thinking of a dog park. This was a lake that had a trail around it, soccer fields and open running space but no fences so you got to see all sorts of wildlife. After our loop she would return to sleeping under my desk, in a chair if I had meetings or on a coworkers desk if it was sunny out (I didn't have a window). Sometimes I would find her curled up with 120lb chocolate lab Frodo. Baily is truly my baby, though she loves anyone who will give her attention.
Mesa is the favorite of everyone else. You may think I am exaggerating but its true. Maybe its the big blocky head or the "not all there" mental thing but people love her. It could also be that she doesn't have as many of the spoiled brat habits that Baily does ;) She also has a lot of personality which helps her cause. Mesa never got the joy of going to work with me everyday nor do I think she would have been a good candidate to go into a super stimulated work place so that may have put a bit of a damper on our relationship. Mesa is my sports watching buddy though. Always game to sit on the sofa and watch some football. Don't get me wrong, I love the Mesa Moose but she is my number 2 dog.
I feel kinda guilty admitting this, though when I look back on my blog there is a lot more about Mesa than Baily so maybe I am trying to make up for it!
Tomorrow is the Rose Bowl. We have our tickets and are on our way to cheer on my Buckeyes! Happy New Year to all :)
