Dog Poetry: The Naming
Cute Dog Face
 The Naming
Give me something strong
Give me something powerful
Give me something noble 
Give me something memorable
Give me something
To carry through all my years
With back straight and chin held high
But then you ask your three year old daughter
"Why don't you name the new puppy?"
And I'm so screwed that I could cry

Dog Poetry: Bored
Dog laying in chair
I get so bored
So very bored
Being all alone
Stuck inside this house
Which explains why
I shoved my head inside this jar
And everything has an echo
Now does anyone have any Vaseline?

Dog of the Month: Peggy

We at Barley Bones are big believers in adoption when looking for a dog to join our families. We are teaming up with the Chattanooga Humane Educational Society for a Dog of the Month feature to share some of the area's most eligible dogs for adoption!


 March Dog of the Month

Peggy McPeggerson is a loving 2 year old terrier mix. This gal is one smart pupper: she knows numerous command and LOVES to show off what she's learned. Gal loves treats, which makes training easy! Peg has never been able to fully relax and be a 'pet'. She was a stray and has spent the entirety of her life off the streets, in a shelter. The kennel life is getting old......she's ready to prove what a fantastic pet she can be!

Peggy spent some time at a volunteer's home and we learned she loves to lounge on a soft surface and while the time away with a squeaky toy. Peg likes kids and she had no accidents during her stay and even played with the neighbor's dog. Peggy is crate trained and will happily pass the time in it while you are at work.....don't worry!! She'd MUCH rather spend 9 hours in a crate then 24 hours in a kennel, day after week after month. If you are looking for a sweet, loyal, kind and smart dog for your family, you've found her.

Dog Poetry: Treat

How long do you
Expect me
To keep
I can
Oh, my bad
Guess we better try this trick a twelfth time
