It was an honor to have Barney, and his rich Tripawd history visit us in Chicago. It is heartwarming and heartbreaking reading the stories of so many canine heroes and their loving humans. What a priceless record of their extraordinary lives.

Many thanks to all the Tripawds before us and those to come, for the privilege of sharing this part of their journey.

The Tripawds have turned soft!  Not only are they missing a leg, they are missing a back bone!  

Monkeydogs and cats LOVE Barney!  Barney works for us!    You fell for it, Ickybelle!  And here I thought Ginger AAGLLLPPP-whatever was your friend!  She couldn't kill him and didn't tell you! 


Hmmmm.  I wonder what clown nosed "Tripwad" will get him next?   Misspelling?  I think not.  I sense tension in the "Tripwad" World!  They are starting to stammer!  


Great work Barney!!  We'll get you a new eye soon buddy!

Shut it FREAKY EARS! Maybe if your ears were't so big & hanging over your eyes you could see the pictures. Pay attention!

ONE: I took Barney from stooopid Monkeycat Denali
TWO: Monkeydog Finn is a sissy and couldn't wait to give him up….he's even afraid of Denali.
THREE:The cats were doing a JOB. Monkeycat Denali was watching Barney and Tripawd Bug was watching Denail watch Barney!

Try to keep up….

FOUR: LEAVE GINGER ALONE…she's sweet…oh, you don't know what that means…..
FIVE: this is the keeping up part…..Barney's eye is FIXED!!!
SEVEN : Get your eyes checked. I think they're starting to cross.

EIGHT: I thought you didn't want anything to do with Barney in the first place!

NINE: MIND YOUR OWN BEESWAX ABOUT WHO GETS HIM NEXT! I don't recall your name being anywhere on the list.


PS: Get over it..we didn't want you at our party!!!!!!!! Are you still pouting cuz I took the song back?

yeah Monkeybully! Get over it! The pawty is over and you werent there or invited. And if you had been nopawdy would have seen you because you would cowered behind your mommies skirts just like you did when you went to visit Wyatt Ray .... oh yeah... you think nopawdy remembers that?? Bwhahahahahahaaaaa!! All of the Tripawds remember THAT! 

I think thats Pawsome beautiful Isabelle, how you made slaves out of the monkeybullies and made them watch Barney! I wonder where Barney is going next???

And oh yeah Monkeyboob.... leave my sweet and lovely assistant AGGLP out of your tomfoolery - she is sweet - oh yeah I forgot you dont know that word... anyway just leave her alone. I am feeling better and better since my knee gave out - there was never any mention of tripping - so get your facts straight.

Chicago knows how to show Barney a good time. What a beautiful, sunny day.

Barney looked pooped! Tossed into the cold lake....getting his eye ripped out...being nursed back to health by the Who did the surgery? That looked like a pretty technical operation. How's his vision now? Does he need special glasses? Maybe if he does, the next clown who gets him wouldn't dare hit a Barney with glasses!

Thanks for showing my purple friend around, I know he loved it!

Awwwwwwww, we were hoping that Barney would be heading back out West. Rio is being totally outnumbered here by monkey dogs! Four to one! (Although two of them are really small, so it's really more like two and a half to one.) We are still hoping for our chance to show Barney our dental work.

Awww what a cute video! Yes I am a bit late on this, but grad school has kept me busy.  Glad you enjoyed him Isabelle!

Chloe became a rear amp tripawd on 7-29-10. Another tumor was removed on front leg 2-20-14. Found 3rd tumor on neck 2-2015, but she's still kicking cancer's butt at age 14. Chloe's blog
