introducing // our dogs

i'd like to introduce to you our (sometimes) sweet dogs! we both had a dog when we got married so we have two now & it's been interesting seeing them adjust to each other! they are pretty much bff now though!



Dixie | basset hound






she is pure basset: stubborn. she gets in really lazy moods where she'll lay there & you can do pretty much anything to her. she tends to lay on the carpet we have around the house. she loves to lay on our mat under the kitchen sink & constantly be in the way when we're cooking. it drives Thomas crazy. she will try to eat your food if it's in her range, whether you're there or not. she used to always sneak up on the couch (that we don't allow her on) in the middle of the night. she's really smart though, because whenever she'd hear us get up she'd jump down. she ate an entire loaf of bread one night...and still ate dinner. she stole a stuffed pig out of my room years ago & sleeps with it every night. she uses it as a pillow, laying her head on it. i swear she thinks she's a person. she also will grab the pig some nights & drag it into the living room with her. it's hilarious because it's about as big as she is. my dad bought her a Serta for dogs (ridiculous) before we got married & it came with her. needless to say, she's spoiled.


Bailey | sheltie




Bailey is a herding dog. this results in endless entertainment for her trying to herd Dixie. she herds by pulling Dixie's ears. before Dixie came to live here, Bailey would try to herd Thomas by biting at his heels. she is such a spaz & constantly runs into things. she barks whenever you open the outside door or even look like you're leaving. she has to follow you around the house wherever you go because she loves to be around people! Thomas has a laser pointer that he'll shine on the floor & she will try to catch it like it's a bug. it's hilarious. but if he puts the light on someone's shoe or leg... she won't try to get it. it's like she knows not to pounce on people. while we were on our honeymoon we asked Thomas's parents to get Bailey a "puppy cut" so she wouldn't shed as much & when we came home she was completely shaved! Thomas made fun of her so much. she's fully grown her hair back now and looks like a sheltie again! but i sure miss the clean floors!
