I love to pamper my fourteen-year-old mixed-breed terrier, Barkley. Companionship doesn’t cost anything– Barkley likes to go on walks, and we do that twice a day around the neighborhood. He also likes to help me garden, sniffing everything including flowers. After the loss of his life companion Daffodil (who died a month and a half ago) Barkey tries harder on walks to make friends with other dogs. Before he had a snobby dog attitude.
