It is with a heavy heart that the DWM bring news of the Rainbow Bridge's newest resident- our next door neighbor Barney. He was only 11 years old, but he had injured his right front paw a week ago resulting in permanent nerve damage. While he would have been a candidate for surgery, the weakness in his rear legs precluded it. This morning he fell over while outside and could not get up, and his vet decided that he was suffering. Chip, Tasha and Anna Rose miss him even though we only knew him for six weeks- He liked to come to the fence to say hello and WHN always had a treat for him. While he did not blog, he was our neighbor and we had grown to like him as much as he obviously liked us- he was always friendly and ooking for us to come and play and talk with him. RIP Barney.
