One Lucky Dog “Spotlight” – Barney

 Meet Barney!


Barney is a Labradoodle who started with One Lucky Dog back in August 2014 with puppy visits twice daily.


He was only a 5 weeks old and loved to play with toys in his backyard. Especially ones that squeak!


Every week he grew bigger and bigger and his goofy lovable personality grew too


After a few months he had graduated from puppy visits and moved into group walks so he could make new friends! Addie, who was also a puppy and Barney became best pals immediately


The park was a little intimidating at first especially when there was such big dogs all around him!


But with some positive reinforcement and with his best friend Addie by his side the dog park started to feel more like home.


Over a few weeks his shyness began to decline and more of Barney’s lovable and goofy personality started to shine through at the park.


Now Barney is over six months old and all that insecurity has disappeared! He is a happy, confident and is never shy to make new friends. (Although Addie will always be his best friend)

Kitten Meets Dog On First Day Home

The filmmaker of “Ricky” has a dog, Romy, who is afraid of other dogs, but she loves cats. Last year he adopted a friend for her: a cat named Ricky. This film is narrated – but unscripted – by his 7-year-old neighbor, Willa, and follows Ricky and Romy as they get to know each other. Willa simply describes what she thinks the kitten is feeling on its first day home. It’s so sweet and cute and captures the innocence of a new pet so well!
Share the cuteness with your family and friends!
