A Letter From Wrigley

Thursday, March 21, 2013

A couple weeks ago Wrigley and Bailey headed over to Sarah's blog and introduced themselves to Floyd and all his friends. Wrigley wrote up this letter and it was just too cute not to share...just in case you didn't see the original post over at Total Basset Case, here it is for your viewing pleasure!

Hey everyone, I'm Wrigley (aka brown dog) and this is my sister Bailey (aka black dog). My Mom and Dad call me Piggles, The Pigs, Wrigs, and Pig-ooooo's. They call Bailey Bazil, Bazil-Wazel, and Bailey-girl. They usually only use our real names when we are in trouble. When my parents first got me Bailey had been an only child for two years. She wanted nothing to do with me, but my cuteness soon won her over and she is now my best bud and partner in crime. We do every thing together, and I mean everything. 

This one time, my Mom accidentally left us outside when her and my Dad went to bed. Mom is usually great about remembering her children, but sometimes her and Dad are so tired they just forget about us being outside. Well, Bailey, the Miss Priss that she is, decided she would dig out of our yard in order to rebel for being left outside. I started crying and that woke Mom up. You should have seen the look on Mom's face, priceless. She was frantically running around hollerin' Bailey's name. Poor Mom. It was two in the morning and Bailey thought it would be funny to pay Mom back by scaring her to death. Bailey had ran down the street and just about gave Mom a heart attack. Dad was basically sleep-walking trying to figure out what was going on. Mom felt really bad and let us sleep in her and Dad's room that night. Maybe Bailey should run away more often...

When Bailey isn't escaping from the backyard, which is a weekly occurrence, we enjoy wrestling with our Dad, lounging on the couch when we aren't supposed to, eating peanut butter and anything our parents give us, and we really love our toys. My favorite toy is my green pig. I love him so much I ripped his insides out and snout off. Bailey loves her rope toy, and any toy that I love.

Mom and Dad play with us all the time. Our favorite time of the day is when Mom gets home from work. She lets us run around in the front yard and we know not to leave the property. Sometimes we push the limits and Mom shouts at us. Of course we act really cute in order to avoid being in trouble. Usually Dad gets home soon after and he plays with us. We all get really dirty rolling around in the grass and Mom brushes us off before we go in the house. 

For Bailey and I, we really hit the jackpot. Bailey was picked up in a Wal-Mart parking lot and me, I was left on the side of the road and brought to the pound. Bailey melted Dad's heart, and I melted Mom's. I am not sure where we would be today without our Mom and Dad, but we are sure happy they chose us. Even though we have cost them hundreds of dollars in torn up shoes, furniture, and vet bills when they first got us, they tell us every day how much they love us and that means the world to us. 

We usually photo-bomb Mom's outfit pictures, but she doesn't mind.  

Thanks for reading my Mom's blog. Your sweet comments sure make her happy! And a happy Mom means for treats for me and they Bays!



  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE! I didn't know your Bailey was found in a parking lot. Our Bailey was left in a box in a shopping center with her 8 brothers and sisters! We rescued our black and brown pups as well! I can't believe they stay in your front yard.... mine definitely don't behave that well. If they spotted a squirrel, they'd be GONE. And Wrigley all snuggled on her bed with her piggy.... SO cute! :)

  2. This is too cute! We're pet-less unless you want to count the two hermit crabs the boys have and our goldfish, but since we can't really play with them, I don't think they count as pets!

  3. I just love dogs. And oh my goodness these two are so adorable. Do you have any tips on how you got them to stay in the yard without a leash? I'd love to teach our pup to stay with us but I'm not sure how and I think maybe we live in too much of a "city" to pull it off.

  4. This is adorable!!! Love it! Kasey is just like Bailey and Riley is just like Wrigley!!

  5. This is the sweetest thing! The dynamic duo! :)
