THIS JUST IN: First Dog Barney is Barking at the Pearly Gates

What!? We scooped Scottish Terrier News.com!? Come on! THEY SHOULD BE ON THIS!!!

President George W. Bush’s First Dog Barney has passed away. Let’s go to The Dubya Facebooks for details:

“Laura and I are sad to announce that our Scottish Terrier, Barney, has passed away. The little fellow had been suffering from lymphoma and after twelve and a half years of life, his body could not fight off the illness.”

“At Camp David, his favorite activity was chasing golf balls on the chipping green.”

“Here are some pics of Kikuma’s daughter, Saya. She started off as an itty bitty thing that shadowed her daddy everywhere. When she turned one year old, she decided to strengthen her independence by moving out to live in a cheese. Have a great week and keep up the wonderful work!”

“PS: The biggest reason I bought Kikuma and Rinka from Alabama USA instead of locally (Hong Kong) is because of puppy mills. After visiting all 5 ‘famous’ local breeders it was horrifying to find their kennels were in appalling conditions and the dogs in poor health. It took a year of research to get to my breeder, Ms. Hansman, who lives half the world away.”

Wow, That’s Cold

… but it was not until the next morning that Marcie came to the realization that the birdie she’d been stalking all night came from a badminton set.


Not an actual cat, but either an ingenious sculpture or a once-in-a-lifetime snow formation, captured by sammydavisdog.
