He doesn't do tricks
We have had him since he was an nine-week old pup. He was the littlest one in the pen, & when I picked him up & held him in the palm of my hand, he leaned his little head forward & planted a big sloppy lick on my face. That was enough for me, he came home with us & has been the number one boy ever since.
I am now eleven years old! I get a few aches and pains these days, but I'm still a pup in my head, so when I meet up with my mates in the park, we have lots of larfs!
On my own terms!!

We wish we could have told you
In words you'd understand
We wanted you to stay with us
This wasn't what we planned
We wish somehow to tell you
How empty we now feel
A part of us went with you
A part that time can't heal
We wish once more to hear you
Just give out one of your barks
Or to hold you in our arms again
Or take you round your parks
We wish we had you back again
To fill this empty space
But one day we'll be together
In a far far better place

Barney, our wonderful little man, is gone.
We took him tonight to a new vet for a second opinion about his immediate diagnosis of diabetes, the way he has been since treatment began, and a general prognosis in the context of his overall condition.
The news was not good. In addition to the diabetes, he almost certainly had Cushings disease which, in all likelihood, was interfering with the insulin, rendering it ineffective. The vet was very honest and straight with us. She said that to continue trying to establish his full condition and determine what was needed to control the diabetes, would have involved many tests over a two month period (possibly more), at the end of which there was no guarantee of an accurate diagnosis.
Even then, assuming a course of treatment could be found that would work against all of his ailments, we would have been looking at most at a few more months, during which his quality of life would not have been good. In short, it was too little, too late.
In the end, the decision was not a hard one to make for him, just a painful one for us. Barney is now at peace, and reunited with Shannon - his one true love - at Rainbow Ridge with all the other dogs.
Goodnight, and God Bless you, Barney Rubble. You were our one and only, loved and never to be forgotten.
