Well my family have left me and gone to watch some Beatles. I think it’s very weird to watch Beatles on a stage for ages. Oh well! Barney Xx

Well I went out for a walk with Florence this morning. Daddy couldn’t come because of work but I still had a lot of fun. Maybe it was a good thing he didn’t come because Auntie Klaire got me a lovely new collar which has the Aston Villa colours. I think it’s set I’m a villa fan. I kind of know what it means now it’s a football team. The problem is I don’t know what football is but I’m sure I will find out. Yes... daddy was not pleased but I’m sure he loves me no matter what.

Apparently Florence has a new furry friend. Hey Florence make sure you be nice and tell Coco to be nice too then maybe the cat will stay and you can play! Good luck.

My mum and sister went to Costco today. They got a free sample of food, chew strips and pig ears all for me. I don’t mind if I do! Apparently it was a good saving. Then they went to Wilko after to get something my mummy needed. They didn’t get it but they ended up spending £20 on me!!! I got treats, dental sticks and a new toy which I helped myself to by taking it out the bag as soon as my mummy put it down. I was playing with it for ages!

Ps apparently I am going to pets at home Wednesday!!

Hello everyone, don’t know if me and Florence are meeting but I would like to! This weird black bag came in the post today. I have no idea what it’s for but my sister was starting to put some of my things in it. I think I’m going on a little holiday on the 31st March. I know it’s very early to pack but my sister is putting the holiday essentials in there that we are using. My sister showed me the weird looking bag and said we are going to stay in a friends caravan for a couple of nights. My friend Freddie the chocolate lab and his sister Bella are going to be there too! So I am really looking forward to it.

My sister has none stopped talking about these lions and Aston Villa... whatever they are. Apparently they are playing somebody called Fulham tomorrow, again I have no idea who that is. Apparently she going to watch them. It seems pointless to me but whatever. Apparently they beat some blues guy last week. Anyway it doesn’t really seem and interesting topic even though she insists that I am a Villa fan! I still don’t know what it means. But my dad has been saying that I’m not and I’m a baggies fan... all very confusing.

Glad to see Rory has been fostered and has been offered a home! And of course if me and Florence are meeting tomorrow or any Saturday when we meet, Flloyd is always welcome to come a long is he is free.

I just found out how to get into the bathroom. I turn round and do a backwards walk then open the door with my bottom so the door opens. The only problem is when I’m in there I can’t get out without help. Which means my family find out I’ve sneaked into the bathroom. I get called Mr Crafty for the rest the day then. That’s not the only thing I’ve learnt while being in the bathroom! I realised if you take a roll of white stuff off the stand you can rip it all off and create a mess. So I used two rolls! I tried to act like it’s wasn’t me. I tried to convince them that it snowed inside the house but it didn’t work!

I’ve also learnt how to jump on the bed. I’ve never paid attention to it so my family thought I’d never jump on it. I proved them wrong. I got on then refused to get off. I was forced to get off when there was a nice bone on the floor. It’s been a fun day!

Hello everyone! It was a long morning. The run was great, a lot of fun. Did miss Flloyd though. It was great to see Auntie Kate again, she is wonderful and of course it was lovely to see everyone else. Not sure about one though! She got me all wet and used a loud thing which dried my fur. The bath was quite nice though. Don’t know why but everyone was shocked that I liked it! Unfortunately I couldn’t escape but it wasn’t that bad. I got a biscuit afterwards!

Hey Florence, I remember that plan you made when we were about to go to the run a while ago. It was when you said I bring trousers and you bring a spade. I think I might use this idea on Saturday so I can get out of doing my pamper. Just bring that spade and we are set. Let’s build a tunnel to Ward End Park where all the squirrels are ha!

So excited for this weekend! Can’t wait to run although I will probably just stand there. Dreading the pamper though! I think my daddy is booking the run early next week, got to check with Florence though first to see if she can do a time before my pamper. It would be nice if Flloyd came along but no worries if he can’t.

Would be nice to see Kate again if she is there. I am also looking forward to seeing all the other staff and greyhounds!

Me and Florence went to Ward End Park today and it was a lot of fun. I was let off the lead... I ran off! Don’t worry I did come back but Florence tried to run with me. She was still on the lead so she pulled her daddy over... he wasn’t hurt thankfully. If the tree wasn’t there it would have been worse.

Florence saw a lot of squirrels and tried chase one but she wasn’t successful.

Well my family were eating dinner. It looks way more tasty than mine so I started to sniff their food hoping they will give me some. All they kept saying was no! I think it’s greedy not to share. I leave some of my dinner to share but nobody tries to eat it, don’t know why.

My sister came back late yesterday, I was very restless because I really wanted her home. It turns out she went to the dentist what ever that is. It’s something to do with teeth I think. Maybe I should visit I would love a teeth cleaning. Second thoughts I probably wouldn’t! Don’t know if I’m meeting Florence this weekend I hope so!

I had a good time and I hope we can meet again some time. Maybe on a Saturday walk I have with Florence?? Let us know.

It’s official I’m going to have a pamper session on the 10th. Don’t know if I should excited or scared! I also got a new coat, new collar and a biscuit.

White stuff, which is apparently snow, is coming down again! I want it stick like last time so I can play in it. I want build a snow dog. My plans on doing that is to cover myself in snow for a while. Then there is a snow dog! The bad thing is my sister said it probably won’t last long and won’t stick. We will see what happens. If I just stand outside till it stops it might work?

Barney, this best way to wake your dad up is a sharp woof as close to his ear as possible! Do not do this to your mommy though. If you need to wake her just a gentle nudge and a quiet woof will do, mommy's are specially tuned to wake up for their children! Florence xxx

Florence and I went for a walk yesterday at Sheldon County Park, it was great. Florence rested her head on me. It was great to see her. Mum had fun watching all the planes land. Apparently I’ve been quite naughty this week... It’s not the tablets. I’m eating them. It’s because I keep taking mummy’s things and chewing them. I got caught. I tried to tell them it wasn’t me but they didn’t fall for it. My paw is a lot better not fully healed yet but should be fine in a few more days. Can’t wait to see Flloyd. It’s all I think about at the moment.

Just got back from the vets! Hated it didn’t want to go in. It did get a bit better when Ruth turned up and gave me some love. I also saw Vera apparently she wasn’t well hope she gets better soon. I guess we are in the same vote at the moment. Well you are probably wondering how it went. It went ok... I guess. The nice vet kept saying I was a good boy and was very gentle. He said my foot was swollen and slightly infected. He gave my daddy some medication to put in my food. There was two sets of tablets. I might eat them might not, depends how nice they are to be honest. Well I suppose I would like my foot to be better so I can be let off the lead again in the park. Overall the vet visit wasn’t as bad as I expected and the vet said hopefully with the medication my paw will get better in a few days.

Well yesterday I managed to cut my paw and it’s been bleeding since. My sister was the first to stop it when she let me out in the morning. She clear it up as best she could it stop bleeding for a while but when I walk it bleeds again. I heard my mum and dad say that they have booked an oppointment for me. I’m going tomorrow and I’m really nervous. My paw doesn’t hurt but it won’t stop bleeding. It’s not bleeding that much which is good. My mum, dad and sister worked together and put a temporary bandage on but it fell off. So they will put another one on as soon as I lie in a good position.

Well the bangs look like they are gone, I hope they are gone forever. I’m glad they didn’t last that long. My sister said I am a good boy and I coped better than last time. I got some peanut butter as a special reward. I have been on lots of adventures recently. I went to see my friend Freddie, the chocolate lab again today. He has a new baby sister called Bella. She is a cross of a Gloden Retriever and a Labrador. She kept coming close to me. I like my personal space when I rest so I growled at her a few times. Me and Freddie went on a walk. My daddy let me off the lead and I ran so fast. Freddie ran after me but he didn’t do a good job at keeping up. He tried. Hope everyone had a great new year and I hope everyone will have a good 2018!

Well yesterday my mum and sister went out. They were out for a while. Apparently they were doing some shopping to get some bargains on Boxing Day. I’m very confused because I haven’t seen anyone having a boxing fight. All very weird. They came back with a full heavy bag of stuff for me. It was just long big chewy things. They are supposed to keep me entertained so I stopped chewing other things up. It can’t stop me! They should have just brought me cardboard, that keeps me way more entertained. The treats do look quite nice though...

Today my mum and sister took me to Pets At Home! There were lots of people and it was very noisy. I was very scared. I knew I was safe when my sister was stroking me. A nice employee came over and stroked me she also gave me a treat so that made me a lot happier. My mum brought me lots more chewy treats. I also got a long stuffed toy. The only reason I got it was because I tried to steal the exactly the same one off my new friend Freddie the chocolate lab when we went over to their house on Christmas Day. I also tried to steal his chewy bone as well so I also got one of them for me too! I had a great Christmas and hope everyone else did too.

Well the past couple of days have been great! My uncle, aunt, cousin and Acer the dog came to visit! It was sooo fun... I had a great time running around in the park with Florence and Acer. It was great to have another friend. My mum and dad keep playing weird music it’s something about a man called Santa Claus and frosty the snowman. I wonder who they are??? My family did a present swap at auntie Klaire’s house. I got a new toy!!! I did make a mess on the carpet though... I recycled Klaire’s toilet tube and wrapping paper, it was quite fun.

I just wanted to say it’s great to see all my lovely friends at the kennels getting temporary homes and I’m happy all the staff get a break. Enjoy your Christmas and I hope you get spoilt like I do!

We have our own paper shredder in Barney who is very much into recycling especially Christmas cards. He took the family photos and put them by his bed and never chewed them. He keeps taking the decorations off the tree. Silly me left a bag of pork scratching on the shelf and next thing i hear is rustling and crunching. Wonder what is all over the floor today.

Noooooo the white stuff is going away! I was having so much fun running around in it. This morning instead of snow there was ice. It was really slippy and me and daddy were trying very hard not to slip. I don’t understand there was so much snow and all of a sudden it’s gone. There is just a random lump of snow in the garden where the weird white man was maybe I’ll just jump in that for now. My mummy was very busy today she got lots of rolls of paper which I really wanted to run off with but wasn’t able to. She had a bunch of items and put them on the paper I don’t know why she is suddenly trying to hide everything but I guess I’ll leave her to it.

Well things are getting weirder around here. There is really deep white stuff on the ground and trees. It’s cold but I am enjoying running around in it. I found out if you pee on the weird white stuff it turns yellow!!! My sister has been out in garden all day and when she came back in there was two scary white men looking at me. They had scarfs and hats. It’s my house and they shouldn’t be here so I don’t know why they have just suddenly decided to stay in our garden and stare at me. They don’t even move! My sister is off school tomorrow, she is happy and excited. I’m happy too because I get to spend the day with her. I don’t know why she is off school though, can’t all the children walk like I do? All very weird.

I’ve been taking things off this weird green tree. Why should the tree only be decorated? My bed needs decorating too!! I want my bed too look the same. I tried to open my moms Christmas present so I could give it to her, but apparently she is not allowed it yet.

Barney has been decorating our floor and his bed with Christmas decorations off the tree. Also he wanted to open Moms Christmas present. He gets a little mischievous when everyone is out and if we don't let him upstairs to sleep. He would stay upstairs all day if we let him and never come down. We really love being together and are best buddies and if I didn't know any better I would say he was human.

Hey Barney, you go for it mate! No idea what the round green thing is but there was one on our door last year and I heard mom and dad discussing if mom was making one this year earlier, think they called it a reef. It's Christmas, that's why everywhere is decorated and covered with lights, this means we get PRESENTS!! Mom says she remembers well when your sister used to chew lots of things so you are probably right about the Amazon box. Hoping to see you soon. Florence xxx

Thanks Florence now I know it’s a tree I will probably end up peeing on it. There is also a big round green thing on the front door I have no idea why there are decorations all over the house all of a sudden. My family think I have a cold because I chewed all of the box of tissues. I don’t know what they are on about I was just having fun, they certainly gave a funny look afterwards! I’ve all chewed up the whole amazon box that came this morning that was fun to. I think my sister wanted to chew it up too because she was trying to get the box off me but I made sure it was mine. My dad keeps saying I’m being naughty I just think I’m having fun that’s all.

don't think Barney is into the Christmas spirit after stealing the Christmas sign and chewing it. Must be because of the cold he has got because we found all the paper tissues all over the floor and the box chewed to bits. I think I will have to have a few words. He has certainly made himself at home.

From the boy who was scared of everything and everyone to the stubborn confident and boss of the house. Barney is now walking without is lead and never moves more then a hundred yards away from you and comes to you when called and waits when told. His confidence is getting better each day. He does prefer to sleep by the side of my bed and will not move if he gets upstairs at every opportunity. Barney and I are best of friends and never far from each other.

I’ve been opening post, nothing for me yet though, still getting daddy out at 1am and make him walk for ages, sometimes in the rain hehe and I’ve also tried to chase a squirrel up the fence in the garden! I have no idea how they can get up the fence so quickly. When I try I slip off! Oh well I hope I see it again soon! My sister said that I’m turning into Florence, well we are cousins.

Barney has tried opening the mail now for the last couple of days. He knows he is in charge of the house and get away with quite a lot of things. He goes the way he wants to go when going for his walks and goes to the car when he fancies a drive somewhere. We know who the man of the house is. He has us all wrapped around his little paws. He really is 1 of the family and we all love him to bits.

Tonight is one of the toughest and scariest nights of my life! All I’ve been doing these past few hours is lying on the carpet shaking like a leaf. I went out for a walk just before it got dark and it was fine. An hour later was horrible all I can hear are loud scary bangs. My sister brought my dinner in and I’m that sacred right now I can’t get up to eat it. I can’t stop shaking, my sister but some nice calming music on and it helped a bit it don’t stop the loud bangs. I just want them too stop!!!

Having the same problem with Milly. Have so far worked through the ringing doorbell and food thing but now she is wise to the whole thing! Taking her out just before it gets dark but think we are now resigned to either staying up later/getting up in early hours of morning to let her out when fireworks have stopped.

Barney is scared of the dark because of the fireworks. The fun and games trying to get him out at night. He lies down and will not shift. Ringing the doorbell worked for a couple of days then he realised it was a trick, going out and coming back a couple of mins later worked for a couple of days then we tried plan C food it worked for quite a while but it ended up a waiting game. So tried plan D tip is bed up thought great got him on his feet but worked a couple of times. Do it now and he falls down like he has been shot. Plan E pick him up after he has been shot and give him a big hug he loves that at the moment then put him down on his feet and grab the coat and lead before he lies back down.

Today I returned to my home and I am loved again by my family! I don’t know if I should forgive them for leaving me with my auntie and going on a cruise but it was really nice to spend time with Florence and get spoiled! It was a nice mini holiday of my own. At Auntie Klaire’s I learnt how to open the pet gate, sleep in a bedroom, take the whole roll of poop bags and run off with them. It was a fun holiday and I want to thank Aunite Klaire for looking after me well and giving me so much fun! When my daddy and sister arrived to pick me up I haven’t been so happy in my life! I was still sad they left me in first place so at first I backed off to show I was angry and then jump all over the place afterwards. While my family was away they brought me a t-shirt that says “daddy’s boy” I guess I am in a way! When we got in the car and about to drive away my family realised they forgot my brother Bert the hamster! They were too busy fussing over me that they completely forgot to pick him up! Hehe at least I know I had a lot of attention. Thank you Florence for the fun and have a good time in Wales I will miss you! Barney xx

I met some whippets and I saw some really big shiny birds flying over while the felt the sun was shining on my back.... I have also mastered opening the pet gate to Auntie Klaire's kitchen, for those of you who haven't, all you have to do is put your head through the cat flap bit, pull the gate back, remove you head quickly and stick your paw in to pull it open!

Having a luxury holiday here at Raymond Towers, no idea why mom, dad and Samantha wanted to go on a boring cruise! Have a place for my bed in the master bedroom and the whole house has en suite facilities. Not too keen on today's morning excursion - to Fivelands - but things improved massively once we reached the park. Had a session in the salon this afternoon. The food is of the highest quality and my cousin Florence the perfect companion! Barney xx

Barney not a lover of fireworks. Just has we were getting somewhere with Barney the firework season comes around and he refuses to go out. So we have decided to take him out before the fireworks and i take in the early hours of the morning and just get him in the garden with a little bribe in between. He loves his food and ours and he shows lots of love to us all. A really amazing and much loved greyhound.

I was up there for some time and scared my mommy when she woke up. I don’t know why but she was quite shocked when she saw me.my sister wanted me to go back down but I was too scared. She tried to get me to come down for 30 minutes but I didn’t so she went and did my breakfast! As soon as I smelt it I just leaped down their before I could think about the scary parts! What an adventure this morning! hehe

Barney where do i start. I think Barney wants to run the house for us all and he is doing a great job because he now knows how to climb the stairs and wants to sleep in the bed with me. He creeps up when you have your back turned. He don't like being ignored if you do expect your stuff on the floor. He is not a very patient dog and will climb all over me when i get up to go straight out before i am even dressed. Now tell me Barney who is in charge? ????

So today, as you know, I saw auntie Klaire and cousin Florence. It was a great day but now I’m exhausted. We did a lot of walking and all I am doing now is lying down. After a long walk around a lovley lake we all went to a pub that was dog friendly and had lunch. I got some wonderful tasting sausages while I was there but I could see that Florence was eyeing them so I ate them really quickly! I also think she is still annoyed at me foe taking her things, I took her lead today and she took mine. My mummy had a lot of meat left over from dinner so she gave it to me so I could finish it.it didn’t last long! After a very long day I didn’t get up very much but when my sister gave me my dinner I was jumping so much she couldn’t put the bowl down.

When my dad got back he was eating a very tasty looking sandwich. I stole half of it haha! He asked me if I took it, I just stared at him while he was also gave me really weird looks. For dinner I’m haveing battered sausage and chips! My favourite! Tomorrow I am going to see auntie Klaire and Cousin Florence. So excited. I’ll tell you how it goes tomorrow!

I have daddy just where I want him! I've made him walk me at 1 am each morning! I don't think he is too pleased about that! He tried to training me using a bone but that didn't go very well! I had to wait so long just for a treat. He just didn't get the message I was staring at the bone for 10 minutes and I still didn't get it so I decided I'll just stuff idea and walk off. At dinner time my sister gave me my food before she started eating but I think human food looks a lot better so I tried to pinch my dads dinner. I didn't get it! Earlier today my family came home from Tesco which has a pet shop next to it. They brought me back some bones and a car seat protecter/hammock so I don't fall of the seat. The bones smelt really nice so I decided to pick the bag up and take them to my bed. Unfortunately my sister caught me and ran after me to get them back. At least she gave me one bone! I also just wanted to say it's very nice to see that all my friends back at the kennels are getting red signs and being rehomed! Good luck to them in their new lives!

I think Barney has got me wrapped around his little paws because he gets walks at 1am before i set off to work and as soon as I walk in the door about 11am he likes me to take him out. He even has Samantha take him in between in the garden. He has tried knicking my sandwiches and dinner. He is eating well and have started training him to wait but if you take to long to give him the item he says stuff you I don't want it then. When he made a puddle in Aunty Klaire's house I told him he would get no treat and a very long stare.

Today was a very scary day! Well for me anyway. I got my daddy to take me out for a walk at 1am. Normally my dad wouldn't mind but in this case it was raining and was very windy. I didn't mind the rain and the wind but I could tell my dad was freezing and soaked by the time we went around the park. I am still a bit disappointed about him keeping all my the dog food to himself yesterday so I suppose I could call that payback. Later on I went to Klaire house and made a nice puddle for her even though I went out just before we arrived. But she didn't mind, I hope... I also went to the vets for my injections. As soon as we arrived there I knew exactly where I was. I didn't want go in so I decided to stand in front of the door hoping my dad would give up waiting and take me back home but he didn't. So that meant I had to go in and have the injections that I was scared of. I could feel the needle go inside me but it didn't hurt that bad. After I had my injections the vet gave me a treat. Of course I didn't take it so my daddy gave it to me when we got home. More exciting days to come!

Today has been very exciting! However in the morning I was busting for a wee. So I decided to make a lovely puddle while my sister was about to put the lead on me. I ran to my bed after because I was scared I was going to get in trouble. I thought my mummy and sister was going to shout at me but surprisingly they didn't. They just sprayed the floor and stroked me. I don't know why but they never shout at me. A couple of minutes later my sister went to school I thought she left because she was angry, I was watching through the window then she smiled at me and walked off. Around 10am my dad arrived from work, I was the most excited I've ever been. I tell I lie I was just excited because I knew I was finally able to go out and do a poo that I was busting for. Then my dad went out again I was very confused because he just took me out and then left. I saw his car go so I just layed down in my bed and slept. An hour later I heard a car door. It was daddy, he was carrying lots of dog food. He came in and put the food down I went up to it because I thought he was going to feed me but instead he picked it back up and took it upstairs. I thought that was a bit unfair and very greedy of him to have that food to himself. I also saw Florence and Klaire today that was very exciting. Couldn't wait to get out of the car.
What an exciting day!

Today I went to Melbicks! Before I went inside I stood in front of the entrance for 10 minutes then finally got the momentum to go inside. A while later I met wolfy and his new owners they really nice and gave me a fuss. Then we went to the pet corner where they have so many toys! I got doggy peanut butter and a food bin. To be honest I was actually hoping to come out with a toy as well but never mind I still got a lot of attention! When we went to pay the lady behind the counter gave me a bone biscuit which I didn't want to eat. She then gave the bone to my daddy and they gave it to me when I got home. It's been a very good day and I will speak soon!

Eventually he caught up when I stopped for a fuss. Later on in the evening we had some visitors they gave me some presents which I love. I could smell that the visitors also had a dog. I really liked getting a fuss off them and I was sad when they left. After I went night walk before I went to bed. When I got home I was shattered, I feel straight to sleep.

Today I am going to Melbix and I am looking forward to it. I am a bit nervous because there will be lots of people but when I get to the doggy isle I will be very happy! I let you guys know how it went later

Barney has really brought a lot more happiness in our house since his arrival. He has his own bed that he loves to sleep on at night in the living room and he has not shown any interest in anything that don't belong to him although the tuna sandwiches were closely watched last night and my tea was almost taken. We can leave him on his own a little while without any worries and without his crate (That is going by the way) we always get a lovely greeting when we return and a waggy tail. If anyone ever thought about owning a do dog then a greyhound is the perfect companion.

We had Barney in is crate at night for 3 nights because he was so nervous and then he came out on Thursday and made him self at home. We put him back in Thursday night although he was not that keen and was quite happy on the living room carpet next to us. We have left him out since and he is feeling really quite at home. He will lie down for a bit then come to me for a big love and fuss and then go back to sleep. He is fantastic in the house and let's you know when he wants to go out. He is not quite so nervous when out for his run now like he used to be and seems to know where is house is. He loves plenty of fuss and he is a true winner in our hearts.

Well my first few days with my new family have gone really well! Couldn't ask for a better home. I'm relaxing after a few nervous days. My cousin Florence has been visiting me a lot and I am really pleased to still have her and klaire in my life. After my sister got back from school we went for a nice evening walk in a park nearby. It was really fun. When we got back I accidentally knocked over my mummy's water. I thought I was going to get told off but my sister and mummy just looked at me and said 'oh dear Barney' and cleaned up. And after I got a nice bone biscuit! Not so bad after all.

Barney did not want us to go for a walk with him last night because he would not move for quite a while but in the end after begging him for quite a while to let us go with him he gave in. Fantastic dog and we are honoured he chose us.

Lots of love to Barney tonight. It was great to meet his new Dad today when he came to the kennels to officially adopt him. Wishing him a very happy new life. :) Thanks so much to Klaire, Trevor and Florence for fostering Barney until his new family could take him home. Xxx

Today has been one of the most nervous days of my life. I went to the kennels to have a picture, I'm must be famous. I was greeted by all my fellow kennel friends and I was very loved. When I arrived at my new home I was very unsure of what was happening. A few minutes after the arrival my sister returned from school. I was happy to see another familiar face. When I saw Florence my face lit up with excitement. When auntie Klaire and cousin Florence had the leave I didn't know what was happening and I was very nervous. Later on in the evening my dad and sister wanted me to have a walk. I really had to go but I was too scared to leave the house. They had practically drag me out of my crate. At least I got a treat for it!

Burglar Barney has struck again.... I had put together a bag of dog biscuits for him to take to his new home, although they were contained within 3 bags BB managed to sniff them out and pinch them. He thought he had got away with by stashing them at the back of his crate but gave himself away rustling as he got into them! Glad nobody filmed me crawling into the crate to retrieve them.... Xxx

Tomorrow I move into my forever home. I'm really excited to stay with my new family. Auntie Klaire has looked after me really well and I will miss her. She has being called me weird names recently. It might have something to do with me pinching things. They looked interesting that's why I pinch them. I will also miss having fun with cousin Florence, she has been good company and she is a good roommate. I did try to pinch her cushion though I don't think she was happy about that!

Barney has had a lovely birthday. This morning he went for a walk with his new mom, dad and sister before visiting his new forever home for a while. He had sausages for tea and has started to venture into the lounge to join us. Florence was not impressed when he went to sit on her cushion and dived in first. He thought about giving the sofa a go but I think the daggers been sent in his direction as Florence realised it was her end he was thinking of using were suffiencient to stop him! Coco alternated between hissing at him and vaulting him and Barney gave Mr Darcy a friendly lick on the head. Xxx

Today I went for a morning work with my new mum, Dad and sister! I was nervous to start with but I started to feel very happy towards the end! My cousin Florence came a long too its very nice a mate to hang out with but sometimes I feel she is annoyed at me for taking her bed! After my long walk I was tired. My daddy took me to my new home and I loved it. I had a big explore and the rug in the living room is so comfortable. Can't wait to move in next week.

Walked Barney yesterday while he was back at Daybreaks. He got off his bed and came to me with a waggy tail - so much better than the previous week when he stayed huddled up on his bed. I thought he may be a bit nervous of the traffic after his adventures last week, but no, he trotted along with no problems. He's a really lovely boy - I'm so happy he will soon be off to his new sofa. xx

Barney is back with us again having spent last night back at Daybreaks as we had to go out early this morning for the whole day. On Sunday we took him for a late night walk with Florence, Monday he looked at us as if we were mad and refused to leave his crate, this evening we decided to leave him be. Florence and TC got togged out and were about to leave when a waggy tailed boy appeared from the depths of a crate saying "me too, me too". So despite the fact I needed the loo and had just made a cup of tea I harnessed Barney, shoved my feet into shoes and headed out too. My reward, a boy with a relaxed tail which by the time we were nearly home was turning up at the tip. Bliss! Xxx

Barney will have plenty of love and care in our house from next week and really looking forward to him being part of the family. He deserves to enjoy his retirement and have a good time with people who will give him all the love in the world.

This fantastic lad has a red sign! I couldn't be happier, I wanted to keep him and although TC fell in love with him he didn't think we could manage two long term.... But my brother in law fell in love too and Barney is being fostered by us until the paperwork is complete before finding his new forever sofa early next week. He is an amazing boy, bright and intelligent he personality is starting to come out of him even recognising our house on only his third walk. Xxx

Barney, we're glad to hear you are ok and don't seem any the worse for your adventure. Reading Ruths post below, it is just amazing how you managed to survive - her heart must have plummeted when she saw you lying there. Friday night was so horribly wet and cold and searching under wet bushes is no fun! All worth it though to know you're safe now. Lots of hugs to you. xx

Once he realised what was happening Batney was happy to go for his walk. He did not pull on his lead. He was a little concerned by the main road but who wouldn't be after Friday! He meet 3 non greys and showed no aggression. With hesitation he let them greet him and greeted them back. He is now enjoying a tub of doggy ice cream. Xxx

This lovely lad slept through the night without a whimper. Was happy to see us this morning and has started venturing out of the front room for short periods. Having done his business and eaten a hearty breakfast he decided to christen the lounge rug and my sewing table! Never mind it was soon cleaned up. He is still taking little notice of the cats but the look on Coco's face when he realised there were two greyhounds in the house was priceless, he looked back and forth between them as if to say "I don't believe it", neither he or Mr Darcy seem bothered by the new arrival though.

Barney is spending the night with us, he behaved in the car - well he took over the whole back seat and Florence had to stand up and unlike yesterday was reluctant to get out! He has decided the front room is his 'safe space' and immediately goes back there when he has been in the garden. He has pinched Florence's bed in there, when he got up she pinched it back so he decided to join her, she ceded it back to him! He has eaten a hearty tea and been impeccably behaved. Coco has biffed his nose and Barney took us all be surprise by licking Mr Darcy's ear as he walked past. He shows no real interest in them. He will make a wonderful pet in his forever home. Xx

Words cannot describe how wonderful it was to see Barney alive and well in the back of Ruth's van this morning! Despite our best efforts yesterday, it seemed we were always a step behind in finding him and it was so hard to have to eventually give up the search for the night. Everyone we spoke to was so helpful and desperate for us to find him, it's great to know there are still people in the world who care. Lots and lots of love to Barney. Xxx

Thank you to everyone for their kind comments and support on here or social media. Most of you know that poor Barney was picked up from Fivelands vets following his castrate by one of our volunteers and on getting him home, he escaped from the car. Six and a half hours later, with the help of many wonderful people, it became too dark to continue searching.

We set off as soon as it was light this morning, back towards where he was last spotted - by the collector road in Castle Bromwich and as we were driving there, I had a call from a local vets to say they had a driver report a dog at the side of the road that had possibly been hit. Moments later we drove past the lifeless looking boy half laying half in the road on the central reservation. My initial thoughts were that he wasn't alive due to how he was laying but as we screeched to a halt and I legged it across the dual carriageway, he miraculously leapt to his feet, crossed the central reservation and ran off up the middle of the collector road in the opposite direction..... I promptly followed, waving every car down telling them to slow down or help catch him. By the time I had caught up with him he was cornered by three vehicles and the relief to have him was indescribable.

He has been checked over by the vets and other than being very shaky as he is so worn out and scuffs to his pads, he is a very lucky boy. I am grateful for the immense support of everyone - these precious lives are very precious!

I do declare it is now wine time - when we have finished at the kennels!!!!!! ;-)

This boy is so lovely, he really wants to be friends with you but is still a little unsure about it all. On Tuesday when I went to take him out on his walk he was a lot more comfortable and his tail came from out of his legs. I'm sure it wont be long before he is a happy boy! xxxx
