Next time I suggest that we go for a drive, I should be more clear about who gets to drive. Guinness was feeling a little dejected when I demoted him to shotgun.

Beach trip with Guinness! He was the only dog on the beach, so he was free to run off-leash and stalk birds to his heart’s content.

I’m home for the weekend and Guinness is almost as excited to hang out together as I am.

Guinness is back at the beach this weekend! Mom and dad found this guy sleeping soundly outside their bedroom door tonight. He didn’t even notice the photo shoot going on around him.

Still not quite sure how to feel about all this snow everywhere.

12PM

Guinness is getting a little more confident. This is a far cry from last night when he spent a good portion of his walk barking at the snow-covered grass.

12PM

It’s a snow day in Columbia! Guinness explores the icy back patio with a little trepidation.

Lisa is home! The rest of the Baileys are at Dad’s BodyPump class, so it’s just her and the dog. I’m still at school for a few more days, but I’ll get to see everyone, including Guinness, Wednesday night.

As I was heading back to school from the beach, Mom sent me this story:

"Guinness was such a dear tonight. Sleeping at my feet. Until time for bed. He ran under my bed , would not come out. I had to get the broom to get him out. He ran straight outside and would not come back. I called, offered him treats & ham, Stan & I played like we were partying in the kitchen. He’d stick his head in & then run back out. He came in & grabbed the treat but intentionally stayed between me & the door. When I moved to block the doggie door, he ran out before I could get there.

Finally Stan had a great idea. He went outside where G was & told him to sit. Miraculously he sat. Stan gave him a treat & brought him to the kitchen. Now we can all go to our respective beds, an hour and several aleves later.

Y’all spoiled him at the beach!!!!”

Of course, I have no regrets for any spoiling that may or may not have occurred under my supervision. And I honestly think the story is adorable, even if my parents had to deal with the sour consequences of the pampering while I was safely hours away.
