Almost 12

Barney’s birthday is in less than a month. I can’t believe he’s going to be 12. Twelve is the age that dogs like him sometimes don’t get to. I’m part of a labradoodle rescue group and many an owner has lost their doodle before age 12.

Luckily for me, Barney still seems to be going strong. Yes, he’s still suffering from arthritis a bit. It’s hard seeing him try to lay down as you can see how stiff he is. But he rarely needs his medications as the supplements that he’s on are working well enough that he can walk around and even play without any problems.

Sometimes, you look at him or he looks at you and you can see that the puppy is still inside. The other day, I got one of those looks. It was pure happiness that he was going on a walk.  It still makes me smile.

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.



First trim

We took Barney to get his first trim of the year.  We hadn’t done it last year and he seemed so uncomfortable with all the fuzzy hair.  So we asked for a trim…and he now looks like a different doodle!

Before:  You can see that he has mega eyebrows and a cute beard as well as lots of curly bits all over (particularly on his legs and shoulders)…

After: he no longer has any of his curls, his cutie pie eyebrows and beard are gone, but he looks so much more puppy-like.  Still the cutie pie I know and love.  Poor guy was not happy when we dropped him off…he was shaking in fear.

But Daddy, I want some attention...please. Pretty please.

Wot? Wot? So I'm sleeping with my nose in daddy's shoe.

Are you done taking pictures? I wanna nap.

Poor daddy is sick.  We’re hoping it’s not the swine flu.  But at least he got to spend time with me today.  Mummy and daddy took a bunch of pics of us all together. 





How could you not love a face like this?!
