Six years ago, we picked up Barney from  the Labradoodle Trust.  If you look back at some of our first entries, you’ll recognise that he was a bundle of anxiety.  He didn’t trust people, didn’t like to be touched and wasn’t great around other dogs.  He was tough work.  But with some work, some training and a lot of love, he’s become our wonderful gentle giant!

We recently moved, so the poor guy is still adjusting, but he’s doing well for an 8-1/2 year old.  Most people still think he’s a lot younger than he is as he’s fit, still can do doodle dashes and be crazy.  He has found a few spots to love, including his new bed in our new bedroom – as soon as I put it down, he went over to lie on it and hasn’t stopped since.  He also loves being on his new couch in front of the big bay window and the back bedroom bed so he can look in the park behind us.

We love you, Barney!  So happy you joined our family!
