Thursday – A Little Personal – Bailey


“Hello, reader.”

“Hello, Bailey. Nice to see you.”


“Can I confide in you for a minute?”

“Why sure you can.”

“The Boss is coming home tomorrow and I have some things on my chest that I need to confess.”

“You can tell me.”

Bailey and Lucy

“Lucy and I got on the bed while he was away.”

“Well, I’m sure that’s not a big deal.”


“I went swimming right after I ate.”

“You are still here, right? No harm done.”


“Lucy and I went gopher digging.”

“I’m sure that was okay.”

“You really think so?”

“Yes, I do.”


“Maybe I worry too much.”


“I’m going to tell John when he gets home.


I’m out of the country but will try to get to your comments. I apologise if my response is delayed.


  1. Don’t worry Bailey… I think that you may find that your Dad may have got up to worse… Scotland has fried mars bars and yard ale drinking contests.. he may well have tossed the caber too… not a pretty sight.

    1. Good advice to Bailey. πŸ˜€

  2. No need to worry at all, guys. I’m sure John will be so pleased to see the sun that he’ll forgive you anything. Well, almost anything.

    1. I think you are right, Keith.

    LOL…innocence betrayed. Stella rules. πŸ™‚ Great photos and dialogue, John. Safe travels back home to your family.

    1. Thank you, Gwen.

  4. If only they could find a way to bribe the cat. πŸ˜€

    1. I think if they would stop chasing her it would go better for them. Thanks, Charles

      1. Probably. πŸ™‚

  5. Wishing you a safe journey home.

    1. Thank you, Staci.

  6. Oh Bailey <3, you're absolutely adorable, come a bit closer and pick up a good hug. You haven't had a cuddle for a long time, right? πŸ™‚

    1. Oh Dina. πŸ™‚

  7. pssst Bailey. . .it’s ok . . your Dad knows . . .he loves you just the way you are!

    1. Thank you, Pan. Yes he does.

  8. Bailey, you are so sweet. Don’t worry about John, he will be happy to see you no matter what you’ve done.

    1. Ha ha ha. Thank you , Michelle.

  9. Cats rule! Dogs drool! I knew Stella wouldn’t let this opportunity slip by.

    1. Thank you, Teri. πŸ™‚

  10. Could it be Stella thinks she has blackmail material? πŸ™‚

    I love these posts!

    1. I think she does. Thanks, Mae.

  14. Oh, I think Bailey has nothing to worry about. I’m sure you’ve been up to much worse, John. πŸ™‚ Safe travels home and hug your fur babies when you get there!

    1. I will. Thanks, Jan

  15. Yeah, cats are like that. Worse than little brothers, I say.

    1. I think so. Thanks, Greg

  16. Have a safe trip home, John. You may want to pick up a poncho on the way home as I’m sure you’ll be covered in dog slobber as soon as you step through the front door!

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks, Phillip. I’ll do that for sure.

      1. LOL… eeeeewwwww!!!!! 🐱

  17. Bailey, I’m sure John will be so happy to see you that he won’t be bothered by any of this. In fact, you might as well sneak in one more comfy snooze – that’s what I’d do.

    1. Good advice, Dan. I’m sure Bailey will take it.

  18. Aww. They will be so happy to see you both. Safe travels home!

    1. Thanks, Audrey.

    Author/Blogger John W. Howell blesses us with another fantastic conversation with his pets – this time it’s with Bailey. I’m thinking this is the best one yet and the last frame… Oh My!!! Please, read on!

    1. Thank you, John

      1. You’re welcome, good sir – my pleasure!

  20. Great episode, John! I’m so happy you’re doing these posts. Stella is such a hoot! Safe trip back home, y’all!
