Meet Rachael Rodimel. A part-time Registered Nurse, full-time graduate student, momma to Bailey, and four months preggo Midwestern woman.
Bailey is our female, Goldendoodle who is a year and a half old.
What's the occasion for Coffee with a Canine?
Sometimes after a long day of being cooped up in the house,
Amazing Caramel Apple Cider from Greyhouse Coffee.
Any treats for you or Bailey on this occasion?
We recently made Bailey homemade apple and carrot dog treats. She loves them! Of course, she also helped herself to a few licks of cider.
See the dog treat recipe here.
How did Bailey get her name? Any nicknames?
There was no ah-ha moment or big to do. Just lots of brainstorming. We met her for the first time, held her in our arms, and Bailey just fit. Of course, she also gets called Bay, Bay-Bay, Bailey Ann, and Bay-girl.
Cat, squirrel, postman...?
Bailey loves to run! She will chase any animal she sees for as long as we let her go. The postman - she’s okay with. However, the UPS man and the garbage man make her bark like crazy!
Ball, squeaky-toy, stick...?
Bailey is such a fun-loving dog. She will seriously play with any toy we give her! Squeaky balls are her favorite. Lately, she’s been hoarding all of her toys in our bedroom closet - crazy dog. Oh - those stuffed toys- we don’t even purchase them anymore. They are completely destroyed with all the insides out and fixings off within 5 minutes.
What is Bailey's best quality?
She is a lover. Anytime, any day, Bailey will choose people over toys and other dogs. She loves to cuddle, she listens fairly well, and she has an excited greeting for you every time you get home!
If Bailey could change one thing about Hoosiers, what would it be?
People - just because you are a Hoosier does not mean you need to cheer for IU. I am a Purdue gal, Boiler Up!
If Hollywood made a movie about your life in which Bailey could speak, which actress should do her voice?
Queen Latifah - when we talk for Bailey (Yes, we do it. Don’t act like you don’t for your pup.) she is always a smart, sassy little thing.
If Bailey could answer only one question in English, what would you ask her?
What in the world do you do while we are gone all day?
