Run Free Barley

It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Grammie and the Big Guy (aka Lady's parents) sweet boy Barley, died yesterday. Barley was diagnosed with abdominal cancer in the late fall of 2015. He was 8 years old.

Barley came to live with my parents through a lab rescue. He was the product of divorce, apparently the new girlfriend didn't like dogs. He was a super sweet cuddly boy, who thought he was a lap dog, loved to drag his blanket around, and loved to tease his co-dog Tendra with a chew. He loved chase, the beach, and swimming. His tragic flaw - he was super, super drool-y, which always added a little gross to the cuddles. He was greatly loved and will be greatly missed.

Run free Barman, Run free.
