Looking at the pics at a link, Barney was truly a companion and loved. He was not a prop like BO’s dog and the Clinton’s Buddy whom you never see/saw. I wonder how Miss Beazley is taking it. I have 2 Dandie Dinmont Terriers getting up there in age and can’t stand the thought of one being left alone.
Dandie Dinmonts! I didn’t know anybody actually owned those. They are so cute in the dog shows! Lucky you.
Yes, that’s the tough part about accepting the unconditional
love they offer, but if it repays them just a little I’m
ok with it.
Miss Trooper my Plott hound, and Digger my Blue Heeler
best dogs I ever had.
Have three now, Shorty my Jack Russel and two of my
mom’s since she is in assisted living.
When Digger first started with diabetes she brought
Shorty home with her and he just stayed on.
He’s a funny dog, smiles a lot but is a deep thinker
too. We sometimes discuss string theory, and the
expanding universe and why females smell so good.
I’ll tell you what happened when my Schnauzer passed....They had a rubber tug toy that they used to play with together. It was sort of the outline of a bow tie.
The larger, younger dog would approach the sleeping Schnauzer and whack him with the end of the toy until he woke up and grabbed the other end, and then they’d chase around trying to pull it away from each other.
When Wolfie, the Schnauzer, did not come home from the vet and the Golden puppy saw my husband holding his empty collar, she let out the most pitiful wail. She was about 6 months old at the time. And she refused to ever pick up her favorite rubber tug toy again the rest of her life. (15 1/2 years)
I have always wanted a Dandie Dinmont!
Barney and Miss Beeze truly were and that's what makes me admire the President and Laura even more..........
And let's not forget about Bob the cat.........who knew this new guy even existed.
The newest member of the Bush family is a cat named Bob. Bob was found on the ranch in Crawford and was rescued by President and Mrs. Bush in the summer of 2011. Formerly homeless, Bob now comfortably resides in Dallas with his new friends Barney and Miss Beazley. He enjoys playing with lizards, but he especially loves to search for the sunniest spot in the house to take a long catnap.
I would turn over a 10 million dollar winning lottery ticket to charity in return for the following:
1. A pre-dawn breakfast with President Bush then a morning of bass fishing on his favorite pond or lake.
2. A hearty steak lunch then an afternoon of quail or pheasant hunting with Vice President Dick Cheney.
3. Dinner and cocktails with Rush Limbaugh.......
