Bailey has been spayed and is now retired from breeding. She will continue to maintain her well-deserved, pampered lifestyle in the comforts of our home, while keeping an ever-watchful eye on daughters, Kona & Willow.
How did Bailey get her name? As we were driving home from a holiday shopping trip, my husband & I were tossing around names for our new pup. Our 4 year old son had a few names to contribute. So we told him that he could choose her middle name. Being a fruit lover, he narrowed it down to Honeydew & Cantaloupe. We all decided the latter sounded best with Bailey, who was named after Bailey's Irish Cream, one of the items we had just purchased!
Bailey is everything we hoped for in a Berner. Her gentleness with the children is remarkable. Often, our sons can be found napping next to her or on her. Our daughter loves to give her hugs and I think both Bailey and Kona enjoy her because she tends to sneak them food! Bailey loves to cuddle and thinks she is a lap dog. Don't all large dogs think this way?!
Since we added Bailey to our home, we have felt truly blessed. Her disposition is incredible. Whenever she has pups, she likes to escort guests to the whelping box to meet them. She is always such a proud mom! She will maintain a watchful eye, but will never react negatively.
Being owned by a Berner (or Berners) is one of the most wonderful adventures in life!
