SPOTlight: Mista B aka Bailey

We’re starting a new SPOTlight post (minus the spots this time) where we will introduce you to a different dog each month! To finish out the month of July, we’re giving you guys a quick look at a pup so near and dear to our hearts!

Mista B! And no he’s not a rapper. In fact, he doesn’t show any signs of musical talent aside from his “baby cry” when he’s excited to see you. Mista B, formally known as Bailey, also requires a pillow to be in his mouth while he’s shakin his tail feather in excitement. Any other goldens do that?


We sat down with Bailey one on one to get to know the real him. You know, the heart and soul buried beneath that perfectly trimmed and fluffed coat of fur. Who are you Mista B?


From: Marcellus, NY

Age: 6

Breed: Purebred golden retriever

Favorite hobby: Swimming

In the yearbook he was voted: Most Attractive

Biggest fear: Thunderstorms

Pet peeve: When you wake him up


Favorite human food: Vanilla ice cream

Fav human food vanilla ice cream (and peanut butter is a close second).

Funny fact: After years of chasing squirrels, Bailey finally caught one. He was so freaked out by that thing squirming around in his mouth that he just dropped it right back in place! We actually think Bailey was more terrified than the squirrel…

Bailey is known for his jumbo paws…

…and calm demeanor. His favorite place to stand is right smack dab between your legs! He also loves cold floors and isn’t shy when it comes to snugging up to the nearest vent. Sometimes he’ll even plop right down in front of a fan, ears blowing back in the wind. It is actually quite beautiful. Speaking of beautiful, he is quite the romantic. You will often find him rolled over on his back admiring the stars. Or stopping to sniff the flowers on a walk.


He has been referred to as a lot of things: the calmest boy ever or the sweetest dog in the world. But we just know him as Bailey: the easy going, gentle guy who has a face that makes our hearts MELT! He rocks those puppy dog eyes and knows exactly how to work them to get what he wants. If he’s not swimming, playing with his sister Cali, or hanging outside enjoying the fresh air (in any season) then chances are he is close by at your feet napping or just hanging out.

We think Bailey is one of the most loved dogs around…


…but maybe that’s just because we love him so much!


Here’s some more pics because we just couldn’t help but share!

Do you think Mista B deserved Most Attractive? What do you think of these SPOTlights?

      Thank you! I don’t think Mista B will ever be catching anymore squirrels 🙂 Also, thank you! We can’t wait to pick her up on August 1st! Plenty of pics to come!

      Tucker also has some of the cutest puppy eyes I’ve ever seen! Golden’s are just so cute even when they’re in trouble! 🙂 B says “Who’s Pawesome? You!” 🙂

    Bailey is a gorgeous pup! And he totally deserved Most Attractive but I think all Goldens beautiful 🙂 They’re definitely one of my favourite breeds, besides Shelties of course! (PS. The count down is on! Not long until you guys get Rae!!!)

    Bailey is one super handsome boy and very deserving of your spotlight! My human mommy has a huge fear of me catching a squirrel one day. She doesn’t realize that I just like the chase. The thought of catching one of those things freaks me out as much as it did Bailey!

    Mista B is a sweetheart! At first I thought he had a burrito on his head in the bonehead picture, lol!

    By the way, I nominated you for the 8 photos of happiness event created by Ariel’s Little Corner of the Internet! If you think you might be interested in participating, just check out my blog post from today for all the details. 🙂
