It is with tremendous sadness that I inform you that our wonderful Barney passed away this evening. It happened so quickly. We so adored him and our hearts are broken. He brought us pure joy and we loved him so much. We rescued him, but in truth, he was a blessing; he rescued us every day when we’d get down about the events whirling around us — smiling, running, cuddling, and making us laugh and so happy. Bless you, my Barney.
