In 2004, I went to the Durham APS looking to adopt a new member of our family. Looking down the row, almost near the back, I saw this scrappy little black dog tap dancing and smiling and sneezing. I was totally in love from first sight. I asked to see him, and he ran into the room, crawled into my lap, and flipped over for a belly rub. I named him Barnabee and brought him home.
He has been such a wonderful addition to my life. Always eager to please, his initial smile got more and more cheesy over the years as he learned that it made me happy. I love coming home from a day of pet sitting to see this funny face. He makes us smile all the time, and I hope you get a kick out of seeing Barnabee smile at you.
