Too much of Barklee

Sorry to put more pictures of the dog, but after months of trying to figure out how to do this, I had to repeat the process quickly, so I did not forget how to "upload" pictures to any site. This is a basic task for many, but I have had a computer for 2 years and this is the first time I understood "how to do it". Just think, because of this site and my need to "show you my hound", the FR Forum contributors taught this retired teacher
how to do it". Good all get smiley faces.Click image for larger version

well thank you. His story is a sad one. He was taken away by county officers due to neglect and abuse. He had been beaten and had an ingrown collar around his neck. If there was a dog that had the right to not trust people it was him yet all he ever wanted was love. I found him at the rescue group that took care of him and tried to get him on a healthy road again. We have had our fair share of ups and downs with him. He had horrible mange (from the stress of life), no hair on his neck or underside, huge nasty scabs and wounds all over his neck. He was terrified of collars but with time, love and a VERY expensive custom collar, he wears one with pride now. He is also a bit shy of "objects" like brooms, bats, big inflated balls, soccer balls. Took our kids some time to understand that he thought those things would hurt him. He is better with it now but will probably never fully trust a person holding an object like that while being near him.

Again, thank you. I have worked so very hard with him. He is crate trained, lead/leash trained, waits to be released for food, loves other dogs and cats, is gentle with my kids, knows how to crawl on cue, dances when asked...he is a spoiled baby and like I said - such a special dog. Sounds like you understand that "soul dog" thing with your elder yourself...well he is my soul dog. I am sorry you are missing your dog and hope that with time the new pup makes a special place in your heart as well.
It breaks my heart to see an animal mistreated. They rely on you for everything and give unconditional love. THANK YOU for rescuing him and giving him a great home. Mean dogs are taught to be that way by uncaring owners or owners with an ulterior motive. We need more pet parents like you!

Eloise loves to swim! She always gets very worried when we're getting ready to go camping. She is so afraid she's not going with us; we could never go without her!

This is our spoiled hound Jessie. She is getting older and a lot more grey. She loves to go anywhere, even to the vet since a ride is involved.
