exclamation PLEASE NOTE: The KillBarney Tour is over. Thank you for playing along!

Download The KillBarney Tour Ebook Here

Some members have asked how they might receive a visit from Jerry’s traveling Barney on the KillBarney Tour, but it’s not that simple.

Jerry says goodbye to BarneyImage Enlarger

After roaming the country with Jerry and his pack for nearly two years, Barney was first shipped off to visit Caira Sue in California. Since then he has been to Alaska, Canada, Texas and many points in between. Check out the KillBarney Tour rules of engagement for complete details. Basically, whoever hosts Barney decides where he will visit next.

So, if you’d like to sink your teeth into Jerry’s little purple nemesis – or hug his little fuzzy friend – state your case with a reply to this post. KillBarney tour hosts unsure of where he should go next, can then review this topic for potential destinations.

Why do you want Barney to visit? What would you do with him? Where do you live? Would your pup love him? Or try to kill him? Do you have a Tripawds blog where you will share complete details* of his stay with photos or a video?

Inquiring minds want to know!

*Members without a blog are eligible, but must provide details of their visit with a new topic in the Share your Story forum.

way-cool Cool, great idea! Members should be sure to let everyone know …

kiss I Love Barney!

Or…

mad I Hate Barney!

After all, the KillBarney blog was first started to document Jerry's love/hate relationship with the little purple guy. And there are clearly certain members who would love to continue the de-stuffing Ginger started! While others might prefer to treat him like a king.

     I officially throw our name into the ring for a visit from Barney.  Our Tripawd Max met him briefly one day last December in Santa Barbara, but Max never had the chance to really sink his teeth into him.  I've always regretted that, but now I have the means at my disposal to finish what we started.  I challenge Barney to man up and face his ultimate opponent:

 BERNIE BIN LADEN – PUPPY TERRORIST AND SCOURGE OF ALL MANKIND

Image Enlarger

 

 

       No one is more qualified to give Barney the gnawing he so richly deserves.  Bernie is singlehandedly responsible for more destruction and misery than two world wars, the bubonic plague, and the music of Lady Gaga combined.  In his brief ten months of life, our little serial killer has racked up a death list worthy of Dexter himself.  No object is too small to escape his homicidal attentions.  Nothing is too well hidden.  Bernie's victims include several books, our bedspread, multiple “indestructible” dog toys, various yard plants, the seat belt of my new truck, and my favorite diving camera. 

     All of them thought they were tougher than Bernie.  All of them were wrong.

     I can assure you that when Barney meets Bernie, a battle of truly apocalyptic proportions will ensue, and that fat, purple, overstuffed newt will NOT be the victor.

     And if nothing else, our other dog Linda would be eternally grateful for a visit from Barney.  The time Bernie spends chewing on him will be a welcome vacation for Linda's neck.

You realize you have to pay for Barney's cosmetic and/or repair surgery if he SURVIVES?

She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

     If you're asking whether his physical body will remain intact, then the answer is yes.  I'll stop Mr. bin Laden before any actual dismemberment occurs.  But there is no chance Barney's morale or self-esteem will survive.  He will be utterly demoralized.  Shattered.  A pathetic shell of a dinosaur, appearing deceptively whole on the outside, but his insides stuffed only with sullen defeat.  He will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has been punked beyond all recovery by a savage puppy who knows neither conscience nor restraint.   He will never gaze insolently upon any dog again, but will instead approch them meekly with head bowed, hiding the surly look on his face. 

 
     But we'll let him keep his arms and legs…

Bernie you can be the Monkeydog's secret weapon!  Are you with us?  Once you kill Barney, we need you to terrorize the Tripawds!  It will put some serious fear into them!  YEEHAWW!

 

So far we have:

Monkeyface Mattie  (she was born a monkeyface, so she didn't need to be indoctrinated)

Monkeypoo Zuzu – (she grosses out Tripawds by eating their poo)

You can be Monkeymouth Bernie bin ladin (that says it all)! 

 

Monkeydogs will rule the world!  (at least the tripawd world)

 

 

Is Chuy a giant or did Barney shrink?

So… does MonkeyButt have an interest in hosting Barney for a visit on the KillBarney Tour? Or has he hijacked yet another useful topic?

To clarify for any other monkeybrains out there, this topic is for members to express their interest in hosting Barney, and what they might have planned for the little purple guy. That way his hosts who may be unsure about where to send him next will have a concise list to choose from.

But yet, Chuy never hosted “The Barney”!  He would cuddle him and love on him and give him some tender loving care that he needs for a change of pace.  He might even take him to Petsmart or the dog park!

See Admin!  See why I hate him!!  He's rude and “in your face”.  He has no sense of decorum!  It's all about monkeybutt over here, too!    

 

In regards to Barney, I will speak for the Comet Clan:

HELL NO!  We want nothin' to do with the purple creepoid!   If anyone sends him – we'll rubber glove him right to the trash! (pick up is on Wednesdays and Saturdays!)

Chloe and I would be happy to drown him, I mean show him around the beaches up here…Yesterday we got 16 foot waves!!!!  surprised

I might also do “open heart squeaker” surgery so that Chloe is more likely to play with him… yes, I am sure he would have quite the visit…

-Chloe's mom

 

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
