HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARKLEY
My faithful companion...Barkley P. Howl...turned 11years old a few days ago. He is a 70 pound Basset Hound that has provided inspiration for several short stories as well as my shadow around the house.
He is showing his age. Not so much tri-colored as he is grey, can't jump up on the bed anymore, he needs help. The furniture in the living room no longer requires pillows and other blockades to keep the cushions in tack and dog-hair free.
A special gift. He got to sit in my recliner and get his picture taken, then stay and look out the windows until he was ready to get down.
His Birthday Cake was a giant Milk Bone. He ate it in one setting and it only took minutes.
