DOLLY PAWCIRCLE Please hold hands and paws to form a powerful, virtual chain of love to honour my buddy Barnie. Barnie is a blissful angel in Heaven now, but life isn’t the same without him here on earth. He was my big teddy bear, my protector, and we loved to hang around together.
His mommy Louise requested a Dolly PawCircle and asked me to post her buddhaful tribute. She wanted everyone to know how special Barnie was.
Sadly, Louise has since passed away, following a tragic accident. She was one of mom’s dearest friends.
Louise and Barnie will never be forgotten. They have a special place in our hearts.

I told him every day that he was the most beautiful and intelligent dog. He had many other qualities: a gentle nature, a keen awareness of everything that was going on around him, and he was friendly with every canine – big or small – and human he met. Barnie was loved by all; he had no enemies. He even won over people who feared big dogs.
Barnie was part of my day-to-day life for 13 years and that of Claude and Chica. We were like a family. I considered myself Barnie’s mom and Claude called him “my big boy”. The elegant Chica, also a Golden Retriever, became his “little sister”.
Barnie had a rug that was just large enough for him to sleep on. When Chica saw that he was going downhill, she displayed extraordinary affection. She took great pains to fit on the edge of the rug and they spent his last night together side by side. What a wonderful expression of empathy and compassion.
Buddhaful Chica stayed by Barnie’s side during his last days.
