    No hate at my place. Dogs are Gods best gift to mankind. Rest in Peace Barney.

    Aw. I have a special place in my heart for black dogs.

    Sigh, sad. It seems that they never live long enough. As I have said about mine when they have passed, I would have them forever if Mother Nature woulda let me.

    Yep, I much prefer my dogs to most people, even the gaseous one currently snoring at my feet.

    I had a black pug, Dudley, and scarcely a day goes by I don’t miss him…

    When asked to comment on the death of Barney, (p)Resident Obumphuk said, “It was Bush’s fault.”

    The bond we share with our critters is a real thing. It survives death and will remain with us forever.

    bubba is right; rainbow bridge. I have many waiting for me.

    I loved little Barney. Especially those White House Christmas videos he appeared in.

    Rest well little pup.

    Loved the Bush Christmas videos with Barney.

    I’ll miss that little critter.

    It is backwards, good dogs should live for 100 years and old bats like Pelosi should expire after 12 years.

    What a beautiful painting 43 did of Barney…hang that portrait in the White House…it is much better than the junk-yard dog currently called president.

    Now I miss Betsy, Boobie’s predecessor. :(

    Poor thing scarfed a rib bone I dropped and before I could snatch it from her she crunched it into splinters and swallowed. She didn’t make it, needless to say. Very sad day for me.

    What a beautiful, beautiful boy. I’m convinced dogs are God’s most perfect creation. It’s been said their only “fault” is that they don’t live long enough.

    I lost a beloved 12-year-old dog to cancer, too, and I’ll never stop missing her. My most heartfelt sympathy to the Bush family. Rest in peace, sweet Barney.
