This is a resub from a few months ago, so no need to comment if you already did. This was also a winner in this year's annual Tails pet photo contest :) This is Bailey, being pet by my little Ethan.

Bailey's feeling a little under the weather today. She seems to have some sort of eye infection. We're trying to treat it homeopathically, but I have a feeling we're going to have to take her to the vet (she is terrified of cars, so I'm hoping it doesn't have to come to
