Barry White's Story...
Hello there, my name is Barry White and I’m a really cool guy! I am a pack animal and I love my foster family; "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe". Did you know my namesake was born in Galveston, Texas? I wonder if that’s where I’m from originally? Anyhoo, I’m looking for a new home and would love to become your best friend and find my forever home soon.
I have gotten to do a lot with my foster family. I’ve been to the dog park- wow – bow – wow, what a treat. I loved running and herding the other dogs and boy were the girls sweet on me, they wanted autographs, pictures, the whole nine yards. At the park, I tried the obstacle course - the A ramps and tunnels. I love riding in the car and I don’t get sick or bark at the friendly folks outside; mostly, I just like to look or sleep. So far, I have helped my foster mom air up her tires, vacuum, wash dishes, blow dry her hair, do laundry and all sorts of stuff around the house; that domestic stuff and the accompanying noise don’t bother me a bit.
I do get going a little fast on the wood stairs sometimes, they are slick and I slide at the bottom, so you may need to remind me to slow, slow, slow Barry. One day, my foster day even let me ride in the elevator, no problem. Mom says I’m a brave dog and not afraid or skittish around new experiences/noises, whatever skittish means.
I have already learned to sit on command. Mom makes me sit for my food bowl, before going out all doors and when she puts on my leash. To surprise her, I’ve even started doing it without her asking. I’m working on down (as in lay down) and crate (I’m crate trained and get in on my own but you must close the door behind me). If you are leaving for an extended time, please give me a pig’s ear or kong bone filled with cheese, so I can occupy myself in my man cave.
Right now, I stay in my man cave (a.k.a. crate) during the day, play at lunch and then stay in my man cave until my family gets home. I am 100% potty trained. I usually start acting up, to get your attention, if I have an emergency and need to go outside. At night, it’s play time and I play outside, go on walks/jogs in the neighborhood and love my time at the park. If we are inside, I like to chill on the couch by your side. Won’t you rub my belly because I sure love it. I have my very own Barry bed on the floor next to my foster mom’s bed and I only have to be told once to get in bed and I stay, how cool is that! I don’t even try to jump up in her bed. She says I’m very well mannered and can easily be trained the basic commands. I’m even starting to come when you call me by name.
I eat twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. In between, I will work for treats. I practice my sits, downs, and roll over for treats and the big bonus pig ear – YUM!!!
I’m probably not perfect and will probably make a few mistakes, as I am still pretty young, but the love I have to give will be so worth it.
Look into my sweet brown eyes, rub the soft fur under my chin and tell me you want to take me home today and have a Barry Merry White Christmas!
Love – Barry
