if you know my family and me personally, then you know we
absolutely adore our miniature dachshund, bailey! bailey turned
fourteen last year! while her eyesight and hearing have
become less reliable (though this could be blamed on 'selective

will tolerate the occasional photo shoot.
we brought bailey home when i was in high school.
i recall my dad telling my younger brother and i that we were
going to visit my grandma. instead, we picked up a tiny
red dog -- she could fit in the palm of your hand! bailey stole our
hearts immediately, and to be honest, i can't remember

our love for bailey may or may not border on an obsession;
my parents have a bathroom that is 'dachshund themed.'
there are (professional) photos of bailey, alongside other dachshund

really love your dog! she's a spoiled girl, but we would not
have it any other way.
^^^ say the word 'treat,' and she will love you forever! ^^^
in the fourteen+ years we have had bailey, i have picked up just
a few wiener dog-related items for myself. i received an adorable
pair of dachshund leggings and dachshund water bottle
from my coworkers on my birthday this year! and when i saw
this blouse, i knew it had to come home with me; what better way
to style it than alongside my favorite pup?!

**fellow small dog owners, bailey is wearing this sweater -- she has
several colors and prints, and we love how well they fit her
(they're machine washable, too!)
bailey last made an appearance on my blog here!
are you a dog owner? if so, you can likely relate to
the immense love my family and i have for our pup. we treat
her like a member of our family. despite her old age, she
continues to enjoy being carted around with us and the occasional
walk (particularly if she knows treats will be
