Meet Barkley

If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that we just got a new puppy! 
Ever since putting our Cody down at the end of January, we knew we wanted another dog (and not just for our sake, Molly, our other dog, missed her buddy).  My mom starting looking around to adopt, and she found our pup on Petfinder.com.  He is the same breed as Molly, Lhaso Apso, and is 3 months old.

My mom and stepdad picked up Barkley on Saturday, and I finally met Barkley last night. I am just smitten! He is the tinest, fluffiest thing...he follows you wherever you go and then just plops and sits right behind you. He is playful and quite the little devil...chewing on magazines, computer cords, etc. He has the cutest freckles on his nose.


 Molly looks so big beside him now.  She is not sold on him yet but is warming up to him.  The first couple days, she ignored him, and now she allows him to get about 6 inches away from her (lol).  

Barkley's original name was Louis, but when we got him, my family thought he looked just like Barkley the dog from Sesame Street.

Don't you think?  :)

When my mom first told me about Barkley on the site, I went to see his picture, and when I clicked to open a bigger window.....
I saw that in the ad above his picture, there was a cat named Cody! I took it as a sign that Cody was giving us his blessing and this was our dog.

  33. He is ADORABLE!! I love the name too! Funny, we adopted a dog back in Sept, he's a Shih Tzu mix so we're told, we don't know what the "mix" is but he looks VERY similar to Barkley, so maybe Lhasa!? Whats more ironic is that his name was also Louis when we got him!! Now he's Bromley :)

    Anyways side note, is that an FHS sweatshirt? Did u go there...I did, I graduated in 2000!
