Dear Mom -




I'm bored. Sure I have fun with friends when you're on the road but we've got the same old toys.



The tennis ball is boring.
The rawhide is boring.

The rope toy is boring.



How about something fun!

You know, like some C4 and a Squirrel.


- love, Barkley

  1. I'd contribute to a C4-for-Barkley fund.

  2. How about a squirrel made out of C4 a la Caddyshack?

    BTW, I absolutely love the Barkley photos. He has some of the best expressions I've seen on a dog.

  3. C-4 and a squirrell. Good times.

    Safety tip: Ensure squirrell cannot run back at you or into the house.

  4. Can't help ol' Barkley out with any C4, but I could send him some Tannerite to go in his stocking. I am sure mom can help out with the high power firearms fun. He should have a good time with that.

  5. SQUIRREL!!

    I can't wait till someone invents that talking collar widget as seen in the movie, "UP".

  6. @TJ, yes, Squills suck.

    I opened up my car hood last night to top up the ww fluid.

    Seems while I was away for a week deer hunting in early Nov., a squill decided to build a nest in my engine. I took out enough compacted leaves, grass and paper to fill a 5 gallon bucket. Grrr. Obviously it didn't interfere with the engine, but I'm surprised it didn't start the darned thing on fire! Maybe because it's a diesel and runs cooler...

    Danged squill! I'll happily contribute to a squill-a-day-for-Barkley fund!!

  7. He's not really bored. He just misses you. All those old things will seem new when his chosen person is throwing them for him.

    I know it doesn't need to be said, but will say it anyway--be careful out there and stay warm!

  8. Wouldn't it just be your luck to find that you've got guerrila squirrels? Imagine it, they'd defuse the trap left for them and wire up the flowerpot or something. They're far too sneaky for something with a brain the size of a peanut.

  11. Hey Barkley,

    When I get bored, I get into the hamper and drag something my mom likes out into the yard. When she gets home, pretend you didn't do it. No C4 required.

  12. Squirrel before or after the C4? On second thought, squirrel before. There'd not be much left afterward.

  13. Barkley,
    Christmas is right around the corner; I'm sure if you're a good dog you'll get the C4 you're wanting, keep your paws crossed.
    I would recommend a sling shot and detonators with a good 5 second delay also, as they will aid in your anti-squirrel activities.
    :)

  15. Squirrel! (Best quote from Up.)

    Sir Barkley is looking quite distinguished.

  16. New t-shirt for Barkley:

    "IF YOU SEE ME RUNNING AWAY FROM A SQUIRREL STRAPPED TO SOME C4, TRY TO KEEP UP"

  17. Now I have used C4 for cooking, fishing and a few times to clear LZ's. So Barkley you cook?

  18. I'm reminded of the old sage advice, "Don't take a retriever along when you go fishing with dynamite"
