While many doodle owners have great pics they’ve shown with their dog strolling through the woods, we city dwellers don’t get to do that so much…so here are pics from an autumn walk in London:

Mom…why are you making me sit in these leaves?  They’re itchy!


Bother…stopping again?  And I have to look at you.  Why?!!

Finally…just walking now.

So the walk is over…I guess I might as well come in then.  Thanks mummy!

I don’t think he could make himself any smaller…he’s all tightly wound around himself.  So cute!

Here’s a few pics of him with his best buddies, Alfie (black lab) & Rockie (yellow lab):

Here’s Barney playing ‘football’ with his mummy and daddy:

And then getting a drink (ick) and small splash in the local stream:

I was having a blast at the doggy house.  So many dogs to play with.  It was totally cool.  I got to go on long walks with other dogs.  Yeah, it was fantastic.  And then…I walked back into MY house.  Woah.  And MUMMY WAS THERE!!!  Wag, wag, wag went my tail like a whirlwind.  Sniffy, sniffy, sniff, sniff.  Mummy.  I’m home.  And all of a sudden…DADDY!!!!  And I began it all again.  And best of all…they spent the rest of the day with me, playing with my toys and cuddling up with me.  It was so cool.  Mummy and daddy time.  So much better than the doggy house…cause I had THEM.

Buh-bye mummy and daddy

Soon, mummy and daddy are going away.  They are trying to be all hush-hush about it, but I overheard that they are going to the States (where is that?).  I’m going to be very sad not to be at home and to go on walkies with them, but I guess it will be okay as I’ll be staying with my walking buddy Dima.  He has all sorts of dogs who stay at his house so I won’t get bored.  He’ll come pick me up, take me for my normal walk and then take me home with him.  I think I’ll probably be a bit freaked out, but mummy said she’ll give him my favorite toy, Koala, and she and daddy will sleep with my blankie beforehand so I can smell them when I go to bed.  I’m a bit scared and I think mummy and daddy are too, though they keep saying that I’ll have a grand old time with all the other doggies.  They figured this would be better than staying in a kennel where I knew no one.  I hope it goes okay.  I’ll let you know after they return…

Sorry Homer Simpson…

Barney 017

I’m just hanging out with my Homer Simpson slipper…just lying here…

Okay…so maybe I’m doing a bit more than that.  But rolling around is no big deal right?

Okay…so at least I don’t do this with all my stuffed toys…
