With Love, Barkley

Today, July 9, 2010, was such a sad day for the Guthmiller Family. We lost our beloved dog Barkley. She was such a big part of our family and one of the best dogs we've ever been blessed to own. Zach and I bought Barkley before we were married and she even became part of our wedding ceremony...sort of. I was trying to cry and Zach whispered in my ear that there would be tons of dog poop to clean up when we got home and it made me laugh. Everyone asked us what sweet nothings he was whispering in my ear at the time. If only they knew...
Here is our first Christmas as a family
It's really hard to know if Barkley was pleased when we got her a little sister. She and Belle became fast friends and took over our house! They did end up loving each other. Unfortunately, both of these dogs have gone on to a better place.
Barkley was such a good sport!

Barkley and BB got along fairly well and snuggled quite often as Barkley got older. She was such a cuddler and loved every minute of attention that she could get.
Oh sweet we will miss your kisses, drools, yuck mouth, and the way you would shake your booty when you got excited. We have a huge hole in our heart without you here. Go find Belle in Heaven and finally show her who's boss!

I'm so sorry about you losing your dog, Jenn. Was Barkley a boxer? We have a boxer and I know how their personalities are so individual...they quickly win your heart!
