The Newest Buckley
Townes is in love.
Barney came to live with us last weekend when his family moved back to Germany. He is a cross between a Rhodesian Ridgeback and a Boxer- he's huge! I have dreamed of having a big, old dog for years. I just liked the idea of skipping the hyper puppy stage and going straight to the lay around stage when a dog just wants you to scratch his head and refill his bowl.
Yesterday I overheard Townes say, "Barney, I love you so much. Now open your mouth so I can see all of your teeth." Yeah, it's probably a good thing that our starter pet is so agreeable. Now if only we could find a saddle so Gus could learn to ride.
