Actually Bailey is probably the reason that we got the place. We happened to bring him along with us for this viewing and decided to walk him around the neighborhood which includes a nice park (although on-leash only). He loved it. And he really liked the park. We cheated and let him off leash for a bit. We have total control of him as long as we have a tennis ball. So we felt o.k. and he did great. Anyway, upon meeting the landlady and chatting her up I told her that we would be sharing the house with our wonder dog and asked if she wanted to meet him to see that he would be a good renter. Well she loved him. He is so cute he could charm the pants off anyone and usually does. I'm not exaggerating when I say that people stop us in the street on a daily basis to look at him and comment on his god looks. Well we were also glad that we had tossed the ball around with him right before meeting the landlady because he was worn out he must have seemed like a very good dog and not the high energy spaz that he really is. So hooray for Bailey. And hooray for the new place.
Now I can start thinking of nursery decor. Yippee.
