Memories - Barkley Tangles With a Cougar!

With the fading evening light and blur of motion, it was hard to get a good picture of the scuffle. But Barkley was unharmed and the cougar escaped to her lair with a glass of Merlot.


  1. Good thing no one was injured! Mom was reading me a story today about Barkley swimming in his private pool, doing laps. I would like to use this as evidence that pawrents should provide pools for all swimming doggies.

    Murphy & Stanley

  2. Murphy and Stanley - Yes, but I'm afraid of water, still a little bit. I wouldn't even get in the little kiddie wading pool Mom and Dad bought me, even when Mom stood in the middle of it holding a treat, wearing shorts (seriously Mom - I know you're Scot ancestory and all, but you really need some sun on those legs).

    But I did step into the creek this summer at the local park where we walk, to check for giant Salmon like the grizzlies do, so I'm getting better.

  3. With Abby's dislike of dihydrogen monoxide, are you sure there isn't a Ridgeback somewhere in her generic woodpile?
