Good Dog, Barney

It’s been a rough week.  There were hard decisions to make.  All we can do is trust that we made the right one.  I miss him already . . .



Trying to make sense of it all and . . . for the most part . . . doing it.

    1. Thank you, Lois. There is so much to celebrate. He was a mischievous pup who grew into good old companion. In his younger years he could run like the wind; ears back and tongue wagging, low to the ground, eyes wild! I liked to think he imagined he was a lone wolf stalking through the woods. And his favorite hobby was chasing frogs in the tall grass. It always brought him back to being a puppy again.

      1. We were blessed to have Molly as long as we did — and she was hearty and healthy up until the very end, when suddenly, she just wasn’t. It was the right thing to do, but that didn’t make it any easier. My heart goes out to you.

    1. Hahaha! Oh . . . understood! It’s strange for me to look at the pictures now and think . . . he was here only last week . . . and now he’s gone.

  1. I wrote a post 2 weeks ago about putting down a cat that asked me to help. I grieved for her and she was only with me a few days. Now, my Schatzie has been gone 2 years yesterday. I will never stop missing her but the hard decision had to be made there too. I can not stand to see an animal suffer. I understand your heartache. I send you healing hugs.

    1. At a renaissance festival yesterday, I met so many dog lovers (we had our Black Sabbath with us). One gentleman said he had a 13 year old dog at home. While he was petting Sabbie I was squatting down next to her. I confided in him that we had just put down our 13 year old boy on Thursday. He picked up his hand and almost started petting me! We laughed, but the truth is we know each other the moment we share our stories of love and pain of our four-legged family members. Whether they are with us for 13 years or a day, they are family. Hugs back atcha, there, lady! 🙂

    1. It is one of my favorites. I’m glad you like it. He looks very handsome there. A little like Morgan Freeman or George Clooney, with a little grey . . quiet . . wise. 🙂 Makes me smile to think about that!

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss. My dog passed away about a year ago and I still ache for the missing spot in my life that he filled. These pictures of Barney are lovely. He looks like he had quite the personality!
