a note about barley




how could anyone not love that sweet face? well, she does some pretty random things that aren't so lovable, but we still adore her despite all of this. for instance, if you are a pair of scissors, you best steer clear of this girl, or this might happen to you...



i had to make 2 trips to superpets the other day to purchase barley a new collar that fits. her 21 inch neck required the 26 inch collar. i thought i could get away with the 24 inch one, but wasn't lucky. but we have moved on from orange to lime green. :) she is stylin' and profilin'.



how could you not love that huge brown beast we call barley? she offers nothing but love and affection, and is happy to receive any attention thrown her way. if you ever meet her, and she sits next to you and you begin to pet her on the head, be ready for her to lean further and further until she is on the floor, belly up, waiting for you to scratch/pet it, too. she may bark at strangers, but i don't think she would ever meet one. she loves kids and cats, too, although for the life of her can't figure out why all cats don't love her. she loves to chase dave (our cat) and he actually likes it, too, although if he could talk (in words, he meows sometimes incessantly), he would deny this.

she is barley, and as we have no children except the 4-legged kind, who else could i post about? (oh, right, cotton... it is almost her birthday, so you can expect her profile soon. and dave just got his own post, so we are almost done!)

Aw, Barley! She's such a sweetheart!!! I'll never forget how sad she looked after she ate Mama Nita's window sill.

The lime green is the perfect accent color to her beautiful brown fur! Hugs for Barley!
