I love taking pictures of Bailey. Bailey loves not taking pictures. Hmm.
I snapped several (okay, several dozen) shots of Bailey at my parents’ house this weekend. I took so many pictures that even my parents got annoyed and told me to leave Bailey alone. I can’t help it. His face is so fluffy and cute. Especially when he gets mad at me for getting overly paparazzi on him. Poor Bailey.
Some of my favorite pictures of BayBay have been black and white conversions, so I thought I’d make this entire set black and white. Ahh, I can never get enough of his fluffiness!
I think Bailey secretly loves posing for me. He is such a princess that I wouldn’t put it past him. 😉
Handsome guy, he is…nice shots.
I love the black and white photos of him. Lovely!:)
Then why’d you scold me for taking his pictures?? 😉
BAILEY CAN SURE SHOW EMOTIONS.
That he can!
Precious pictures of such a darling Maltese! What’s your trick in getting Bailey to sit still?
Thanks, Tricia! There are two secrets: lots of treats or wait until he is tired from running around. The time windows for each are rather short so I have to work quickly! 🙂
Good pointers to try with my parents’ Maltese, Gigi. 🙂
Bailey hates the camera so I often have to hold it with one hand and a treat right above the lens with the other. He avoids eye contact as much as possible when he sees me bring it out. Silly guy.
🙂 How old is he?
He’ll be seven next month. Runs around like he’s a puppy. I love him dearly. 🙂
The definitely become a part of the family, don’t they? My parents just said goodbye to their older Maltese; she was 16 and had a long life on two continents. Still, it was so hard to say goodbye. The younger dog will soon turn six. She was actually formerly mine, but had great separation anxiety when I was at work. She’s been spoiled – to say the least – by her adoptive parents, and I get to see her all the time.
Oh yes, my parents refer to themselves as Bailey’s grandparents. He is one spoiled baby! I’m sorry to hear about your parents’ older dog. I don’t think our fur family members lives are long enough. I can’t wait to see pictures of Gigi!
How can anyone not love this dog?
I agree, Ron! Even though I came home to two accidents in the house. Heheh.
Oops… I love dogs but travel too much to have one. When the kids were home we had a dog.
Dogs are the best. I like to say Bailey is my favorite person.
I believe dogs have real self awareness. Their single most valuable characteristic is centuries of breeding for human compatibility.
I agree wholeheartedly. There’s a reason why there are therapy dogs. They are good for the soul.
It is documented that pet therapy works.
You can’t help but feel a little bit better when a furry friend curls up on you. That’s for sure.
I love Bailey! Soooooooo adorable.
I love him, too!! ♡♡♡
