“Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.”
This week is the Westminster Dog Show (which is always, of course, an amazing display of wonderful mixed with the bizarre). Sadly, this same week, the world also lost a great dog.
After a long, happy life chasing gophers and eating anything he could get his tiny paws on, yesterday Barkley headed up to that big beach in the sky, where I’m sure he will find lots of sun to lounge in, bottomless bags of hot dog buns to chow down on, and plenty of disgusting things to roll in. And since his accomplishments have been highlighted on here a few times, I figured a tribute was appropriate.
RIP Barkley. You are missed.
