Wow, he really did catch crabs.  LOL.  What a title.  Barney you are having a great time I can tell.  Just don't drown when you go underwater buddy.  Looks like you are having a great time celebrating Hannah's 1 year ampuversary.  I hope you make it back to see her again Barney.

GET BARNEY AWAY FROM THAT BIRD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Seriously......I know you probably dont know this Salt but I really um dislike birds.......especially big parrots like that.......I believe they will eat people and I bet they will definitely eat a big purple dinosaur.


I'm concerned.

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

Wow Barney you really are a busy purple dinosaur in Hondura!

Here's hoping Sally is enjoying herself too!

And of course I'm sure the lovely Miss Happy Hannah is relaxing in front of her warm fireplace at home :)

MICHELLE! Yep, Barney is back in the States and we are making everyday a continual celebration! Yeah, Barney typed his own "title"...he's such a naughty boy!

PEPPER! My mom was PETRIFIED of birds too! Once in a blue moon one would get in the house in the summer and she almost had a complege panic attack! Even looking at pictures gave her the creeps! You two would have .loved each other!

LINDA! Keeping an eye on Barney was a full time job!! Yeah, the lovely Miss Hannah stayed snuggled by the woodstove! My dogsitters husband would come over at night and stay as she was afraid to stay by herself. He slept downstairs with the lovely Miss Hannah by her woodstove because it was too cold upstairs. She thorouhly enjoyed being spoiled by them!

Love to all!

This is so many degrees of awesomness ... I don't even know where to begin! 


I don't "do" birds either ... I don't get it. 🙂 


Barney glad you had fun! Can't wait to see where you land next... and Sally ... so glad you had  well-deserved vacation!!! I am sure Happy Hannah was over the moon happy to see you but glad she was spoiled as she should be!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
