I’ve always been a daydreamer. And of course what is envisioned inside my head is far different and much easier than coping with reality. I became all too aware of this fact when I volunteered to care for my sister’s five-month-old Pug, Bailey, while she and her family traveled to Florida for a few days.
I had met Bailey on numerous occasions and just like the rest of my sister’s family, I fell in love with her. It’s hard not to — she is really adorable. She has a tiny, stocky body and quick-moving little legs. Her coat is khaki colored, but her creased and wrinkled face is black, with smudges of black on her velveteen ears. Bailey’s eyes are bright and when she wags her stubby tail, which lies in a tight curl, it is as though her whole bottom is swaying.
Because she is a puppy, Bailey fits in your lap when she takes a snooze, so I love it when I visit my sister and Bailey curls on my lap and slumbers. I love how I can pick her up and fit her in the crook of my arm.
When I learned that my sister and her family would be taking a vacation to visit our grandparents in Florida, I immediately volunteered to take Bailey into my care.
It was not just because she is sweet and cute; I offered to sit for Bailey because I figured it would be a cinch. She’s a small dog — how hard could it be?
