Arrival Story:
Barney's mom was living on prison grounds behind the firehouse when she had her puppies. The inmates working there had been feeding them their lunches and all but Barney had been given a home. I took him with the intention of finding a good home but when everyone saw the size of his feet they chickened out. He is one of the most mellow puppies dogs I've ever had. So far the only thing he has massacred is a roll of paper towels. Someone is sure missing out on a great guy.

Barney is sure turning into a great dog. He loves to play with the other dogs (scares Foxie a little) and is great on the trails with the horses. He sleeps with a little stuffed dog and everymorning when I go get him he picks it up and brings it to me so the other dogs won't tear it up. The only issues we've had is his love for sprinkler heads. I think that's getting corrected now because it's been a months since I had to replace one YEAH!

Hi everyone! I'm sorry it's been so long since I've written. Mom says she types all day and doesn't feel like typing at home but she is doing this for us tonight.

I have gotten a new brother since you last checked. (actually, two). Daddy went to the pound and paroled Andy. He's a cute little guy and we all get along real well.

We also found a stray kitten. He took some getting used to but we are working it out. He promises not to whack me and I promise not to eat him. His name is Norman (Mom said something about the movie, "Psycho".)

I still get to go the stable and all sorts of places with my mom and my brothers.

I love the summertime because I get to go swimming whenever I want. Mom comes home from work and we race across the pool but I always win. I guess dog paddling comes natural to me.

Well, talk at you later. The rest of the gang is waiting their turn at the computer.


Happy Guy!

Hi Dogsterland!

Have I ever told you how lucky I am. I love my mom. She loves me too!

I got a new pack pack. I got too big for the old one in the picture. Mom still has to take my picture in it. It's a lot bigger. It will hold a lot more water or biscuits. She even got Foxie one to match. Hers will only fit one biscuit or the keys and a couple of poo bags though. I told Zack he could have my old one but he says he is not going to start carrying a purse at his age.

We got a new brother named Sebastian. His name was Shadow, but every black dog is Shadow so we got him something poodleish. Maybe he won't mind wearing the other pack pack. He can carry biscuits and water too!

We went to see Grandma a couple of weeks ago and something crazy happened. White stuff fell out of the sky. It was very cold. Zack said it was snow. He said he'd played in it before. It was great! We ran and ran. When we got thirsty we stopped and ate some. Of course, that made us cold but we had a nice warm truck to ride home in.

Mom bought us nice warm coats. Mine is actually a blanket made for a miniature horse baby but it fits perfect and keeps me very warm.

Today Zack and I got to spend the whole day with Mom at work. I love it when I can do that.

I have gotten sooo big. I weight 79.5 pounds now. I already have grey hair on my snout. Mom says I don't have my puppy looks anymore. Now I have my MAN FACE. I'm all grown up! Yeah for me!!!!

Tonight is very windy. I hope our fence doesn't blow down. I would hate for my brothers and sister to get out.

Have a good night



On the Dusty Trail

Today Zack and I got to go trail riding. It was sooooo much fun! We didn't see one single coyote and, thankfully, no mountain lions either. I think they are all smart enough to stay in during the hot days.

We went swimming in the Kern River. We got into a little trouble though because we ran ahead of Phantom and jumped in the water. Well, it was deeper than we thought with stuff that tangled around our legs. We couldn't get out. and we got tired. I was really scared (Zack says he wasn't but don't let him fool you). Zack said that mom would come soon and help us and she did. She had to leave Phantom standing in the trees and come pull us out by our collars. After that, no more running ahead to the river. Mom scouted out good spots for us and went to the water first. I love to lay down in the river and put my face in. Zack thinks I'm crazy, but I get nice and cool. He only gets his legs wet so he doesn't stay as cool as me. Who's the crazy one?

I am sooooooo tired I think I will sleep the rest of the day and all night. I can't wait for dinner!
