that's right. as of january 15, sweet, precious barley is now 3. in human years, she's legal! thank goodness she's a dog. what has changed with barley? not much. she's lost some weight. she still stays in her "house" when we're out because she likes to eat things that she shouldn't. she loves loves loves to lay in the sunshine as it streams through the windows and will follow the sunbeams around the room. she still absolutely loves to chase dave. she loves to play with her toys and is getting better at playing fetch. she is still our "protector" and barks at strangers and strange cars from time to time. oh, and she still loves meal time. our hearts and home would definitely be empty without her.
