Barney in the sun

Barney in his kingdom

It’s a grey but comfortable day for March in London.  Barney decided to hang out in the back garden.  So I decided to take his picture.  As per usual, he gave me his ‘whatever’ look.  Love that dog!

Maybe if I don’t look at her she’ll go away

Really? Again, mummy?

OK. I love you, but you can leave me alone now.



On getting older…

Barney recently turned seven.  Yikes!  He’s getting old.  Then again, he doesn’t seem to recognise it all the time.  He still wants to play a LOT.  Does his doodle dashes.  So, still youngish.  But he also enjoys his solitude and rest much more.  His play sessions are shorter.  And he can’t quite keep up with those young pups who are running around.

What we love about him right now is that he’s getting more and more cuddly.  He will curl up with us and will let me hold him on my lap.  This is a big change in the last year.  He’s so much more affectionate than I would have imagined.  Some of this might be the fact that I’ve been at home a lot more due to not working full time.  Some of it is that we’re asserting our dominance in a positive way (he’s learned to walk at our side and that he can’t come upstairs with us unless we truly want him…that sort of thing).

I hope we have Barney for many more years to come.  I look back at my first posts about him, like this one, where I wasn’t too happy about owning this doodle, and I cringe a bit.  I didn’t know what an amazing friend I would end up with!

Happy Holidays from Barney

Not sure if those of you who live outside the UK will be able to see this, but here’s the programme which Barney was part of (can’t miss his hairy highness in the beach scenes – he was having a blast with his ears a flapping).
