Pet of the Month.

Barkley September 2009


Finally… I am pet of the month. Took ya’ll long enough! I have only been coming to TAW for a bazillion years. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate it, as long as it comes with some serious belly rub time!

At day care I am pretty mellow. Ya, I play but I reserve my strength for those puppies, they need lots of help learning how to respect dogs of my size. My best buddies are Layla P, Jack H, Mollie G, Beau G, and Winnie.

How did you come to live with your current family?

I became a member of my family when I was adopted at age 8 weeks. When I was a wee one, I had a big brother named Zeke, he taught me everything I know. Zeke told me someday it would be my turn and dad says that time has come… I am getting a new brother, very soon.

Besides Day Care. what do you love?

I like hanging out at Boulevard Park. Now that I’m 8, I do more resting on the lawn than walking there. Since I’m tall enough to rest my head on the walk-up window at the Woods Coffee there, I like to do that because I always get a treat from them. Usually several.

What are your favorite toys or games?

I like resting a lot. Let’s face it… I have to travel pretty far just to get up off the floor!

Other information we should know about you?

I’m getting ready for a big family change in September – I’m getting a new little brother. He is a Leonberger puppy. I’m working on my tolerance and patience right now.

If you had a major in college…what would it be?

Childhood Development. I hope to get my degree soon, with my new brother

If you wrote a personal ad… what would it say?

Single, Dark, Male looking for a warm bed or a spot in the sun for lounging. Must enjoy walks at the park, but be willing to stop frequently for rest time.
