   Leave a bone for Barney

Barney B, Love Bug, Barnz

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

September 1st 2003

chewing on toys (and shoes), sitting on the couch (no!), tummy rubs, meeting new people (lick, lick), and the sound of motorcycles

other animals sneaking into the yard. it's my yard, you know!

Favorite Toy:
my ring-shaped chew toy, or Kong .... just gimme something to chew on. I will dedicate myself to doing so for hours.

Favorite Food:
chicken. or beef. or turkey... or whatever's on your plate there. feed me? please?

Favorite Walk:
around the neighborhood / Cuesta Park. Just don't make me walk too far. I get tired after a few blocks and then I just lay down on the pavement to rest. And you look pretty silly holding the leash while I nap in the neighbor's driveway.

Best Tricks:
being adorable. that's pretty much all I do..... Oh, and getting people to rub my tummy. I'm pretty good at that too.

Arrival Story:
I spent my first year with a family in San Jose. In Sept '04, shortly after my 1st b-day, I was adopted into my new home. I was a much anticipated addition (after many months of looking for the perfect little bulldog). Anyway, I love this place. And they love me. I'm a happy puppy.

I just want everyone to know that the stupid clown costume was not my idea. I tolerated it for a while because it was some kind of torture-your-pet holiday, but I did not enjoy it. Next Halloween, I'd like to be Magnum PI or maybe Fonzie from Happy Days instead.

Forums Motto:
this is the face I was born with...

I've Been On Dogster Since:
June 1st 2005 More than 11 years!

Hi Friends! How are you? What did you do today?

Today we went to visit Dr San Juan and her friends. It was good to see her, but she was more interested in looking at my coat than playing. She concluded I have something called Bulldog Alopecia. It gives me balding spots on my sides. It should go away on it's own (and may come back from time to time), but for now, I have some thin spots on my otherwise splendid coat. It's ok - it doesn't bother me. I can still play and eat and sleep and do all the stuff I love.

I hope all is well with you too.

Your friend Barney


Stormy day

Did you know Mother Nature does a pretty eerie dog impression? She's been howling all day, and I can't help but worry each time I hear it. I get very sympathetic when I hear such wailing.

As you can see above, I have the proper gear to brave such wild weather - my trusty rain slicker.

But, even so, I prefer to stay dry. At heart, all I want to do is nap in nest of blankets...

Night, night!


but I can't climb on this either? Phooey!

It was eventful weekend at our house. Furniture was moving all over, new things in, old things out of the way, I tried to stay out of the way too and hide - scared I'd be mistakenly put in the "get rid of" corner.

I was also afraid for my chair. It's the one piece of furniture I'm allowed on. What if it didn't get to stay?...yikes! But my chair still has a place among the newness. What a relief!

But, then again, it wasn't all good news for your friend B. I got ambitious and figured with new furniture, I could stake my claim to it early on and expand my elevated territory, right? Well, I tried and tried, but it seems it has been pre-determined that I am not to be on the new things. I don't know who makes these decisions, but I will continue to protest and appeal. I don't give up easily.

I hope all is well with you, and I'd like you to know that you're welcome on my chair anytime.

your friend, Barney B
