The boys behind the barks

Let’s face it: you might think I’m ok, but you’re really here for pictures of my pups. It’s ok. I get it. They’re precious!

Thor and Barkley are full of fun and personality

Here's Thor

I didn’t realize how lucky I was when I met my now husband. I was getting a twofer — a sweet, but naughty dog and, of course, Thor — for the price of one. Thor is a furry bundle of personality in a small package. He is the perfect mix of silly and sweet.

Our first apartment together was in the suburbs of DC. What it lacked in downtown feel, it made up for in a huge L-shaped balcony and much cheaper rent!. We built Thor a swimming pool to enjoy during that hot and steamy East Coast summer.

That fall we moved to Oregon and bought this sweetie a house with a backyard to play in. A lot of my husband’s blood, sweat, and my tears over dirty floors later, we’ve mostly managed to removed the sources of mud that made this guy a very dirty puppy.

We finally had a backyard reception a year after we got married at the courthouse and this pup was our ring bearer.

Soon after that, we bought our first teeny tiny camper. We wanted to be able to travel around Oregon to explore the beautiful state where we live. We didn't have a lot of extra money and finding dog friendly hotels was an expensive and frustrating endeavor, so this vacation home on wheels was our solution. Luckily, this pup loves to travel!

Life was really great for Thor until we decided to get a puppy…

Baby Barkley

Life AB

Drooly baby Barkley the cavalier

We picked up Barkley on a drizzly Saturday in December, and were a little nervous about how this little bundle of fur would affect our household. We were instant buds and he drooled on my arm all the way home.

Baby Barkley the Cavalier

Bringing Barkley home immediately ushered in six months of angry Thor.

Not happy.

Up to snow good.

Slowly, but surely, Thor began warming up

Barkley and Thor separated by a fence

One day I put up a fence to give Thor some space from Barkley and quickly discovered that the only thing he hated more than having a puppy chasing him was not having a puppy chasing him!

Slowly becoming buddies

Did we just become best friends?

How can you resist this face?

It’s impossible to resist this face.

Barkley's doggie t-shirt

I bought a few doggie t-shirts to try to cut down on Bark’s shedding… they did not last long

Slooowly they became besties!

Barkley the book lover

My little shadow is always near

My little gardening helpers! Thor looks cute even with the cone of shame on and I love how Barkley lips look like he’s been sneaking from the strawberry patch!
