Eye on the Prize

Barkley lies on my dresser so I can say goodbye to him as I leave for work in the morning.  I put his all-time favorite toy on top of the box.  Mr. Squeeky was an infuriatingly loud toy but Barkley carried it everywhere. His doggie day camp had a purple one and they had a cam in the yard so we could see the dogs at play on their website and he ALWAYS had that toy so I found him one after searching about 87 different pet stores in Indiana.

So when I found this photo of him, I just had to place it here so he can keep an eye on Mr. Squeeky.


  1. Barkley was ... a member of your family, a friend ... a person. His loss affected many of us, and I'm glad you honored him this way. There was something extraordinary about him.

  2. I love the way he's just staring at it....

  3. I do miss Barkley, or well your writings about him :) I've always loved Labs. Some day Ill have one again, right now my other half seems to collect American Eskimos as rescue targets, me I just have one slightly overweight Basselope well I call her that she is Beagle/Chihuahua. Anyhooo perfect Photo Composition :D

  4. Seeing the photo of Berkley made me smile and also brought tears to my eyes. He sure was a special dog and missed by all who knew him!
