Bailey, the Dog of the Day
Name: Bailey
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Female Breed: Wire Haired Terrier mix
Home: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
   Bailey is a Wire Haired Terrier Mix. She was a gem of a find at the local Humane Society ten years ago. Bailey has a unique way of greeting people with a smile which she does by pulling her lips back to reveal all of her teeth. Most people first seeing this believe that she is baring her teeth to them, although there is no growl. I reassure them that this is her way of saying hello. Bailey has always been full of energy and loves her daily walks where she gets to play with her Kong. She runs like a bullet and always brings the Kong back for another throw. She is totally obedient and is always walked leash-free. Over the last few years she has started to slow down a bit, but nonetheless can outrun many of the much younger dogs in the neighborhood. Her vet says she is in phenomenal shape and should live a long life.

    Everyone who knows Bailey believes she has the intelligence and personality of a human being. Some people have said that it is almost eerie that way she almost knows what you are thinking or feeling. She has been a trusted and loyal friend for close to 10 years. She is a pretty scruffy looking character which makes her all the more lovable. I truly believe that Bailey is a one-of-a-kind dog. It was destiny that the two of us found each other and I thank God every day that she is such a special part of my life.
