Meet Bailey, the Newest Addition to the Clan

Meet Bailey, a two-year-old GoldenDoodle. We found out about her online from a couple who moved into a smaller townhouse without a back lawn for her to play in. They were looking for a family with a big back yard and maybe a young'n to hang to keep up with Bailey. We most definitely fit that bill.
So we met at the halfway point between our house and Monument and Bailey traded families. We received her permanent kennel, her portable kennel, her food, her toys, leash, blankets and Bailey.
Bailey has settled in pretty well once the initial excitement of discovering her new home. Up and down the stairs, down to the mancave where her kennel will be when we are out of the house.
She slept in Lady K's room and did pretty well. She's housetrained and did her business outside when Lady K got up once in the night. That was the only time she's barked since arriving. She went down to the back door and, seeing we weren't coming down too, barked to let us know she'd like to use the facilities please.
She walked with me to take Lady K to school this morning and then we trotted around the lake. She loves the snow and I saw her retriever mode come out when she saw the ducks, coots, and geese swimming about. She was ready to go get 'em.
We are super lucky to get her.

Oooo what a great dog! I once had a poodle that color, and so loved him. Died of old age, and still miss him now and then. Pic is on my desk. Such a sweet but also very jealous and protective dog.

I wish you all lots of love and fun with him.
