Barney was Abby's son. Born in Fairmont in 1988, he was sired by our next door neighbor's Cocker Spaniel. Barney was very timid but that was natural as he had two dominant females over him - Muffy and Abby. He made the trip from Fairmont to the Outer Banks and then finally to Richwood. When Muffy left us he was befriended by Peaches who as a pup would attack and play with the old man showing no mercy. He would ignore her and often would look at us for help. Barney left us in 2004.
