Sweet Barney
Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:26am

We were putting up our Christmas tree. We looked up at the loft railing. There sat Barney in the same spot that Sundog sat a thousand times and that Barney has never sat in. Looking at us through the railing, just as Sundog used to do. She loved to sit there and drop her toy for someone to throw back up. I think he was channeling her. I don't know what we'd do without our sweet Barney.

We got the Christmas tree and a couple of decorations up, but that's all we could handle. We have all of our special Sundog and Barney ornaments on the tree.

        I think he is okay, but once in a while he seems just a bit confused. He took so many of his cues from Sundog. But he's getting along well without her and seems happy. I wonder if it helped that we... more
