Found this. (Circa 2003) -This is Barney.
Our sad eyed #sharpei mix. Found him on death row at the #pound with my 3 then #homeschooledkids He was traumatized, emaciated skinny, and trembling at the back of the cage. He refused to eat 💔 We went every day..the process to adopt him included him eating and passing anger tests with us. Fast forward after a lot of visits , #prayers and paperwork - We brought Barney to our #sanjuan home ---------------------------------He was a little crazy with strangers but funny, loyal and Hungry. He ate everything -including all the kids crayons and socks, resulting in psychedelic sock poop. We would gather around his creations 💩in awe. #mini sculptures #dontjudgeme My youngest (Elijah) would nap in his kennel and wake up with ticks from Barney on his neck. (SJC horse area) My daughter 9 would hunt and pull those ticks right off whenever she was bored (Usually while I was driving the car, helpless 🐜 !) #shesanursetoday. Ticks weren't the biggest issue though. Barneys drool was. It could supernaturally suspend 💧👅from his mouth for hours, and flew everywhere when he shook himself- 💦 We never saw where it landed but it was always on my person: the big dried up drool appeared during my little home based business presentations #classy--Barney had ticks and drool and a huge ❤️heart. Whenever 5 year old Elijah got in trouble, Barney would stand in front of him, with sad eyes that pleaded mercy on Elijah's behalf. Barney the hero. -------------------------------- #nohappyendinghere #sadpart One day Barney bit a dogs ear right 👂off... the lady next doors. We prayed like crazy but the judge ruled against him, we were sued and Barney was put down. ❣️Just like that, the SJC season of Barney, homeschooling my kids zero money, abundant love with beautiful Barney ended, and we all moved to HB and Cccm. #bigchange #newseason #seasonsoflife #lifegoeson #eachhavetheirbeauty #amidsttragedy #aintheaventillheaven #🌈💖🌻#butstillbeautiful #thisisToolong
