Meet our South East Canine Critic

Ruth 25 July 2019

Barney | South East

I’m not your average canine from Berkshire - I have exceptionally high standards and am always down for a pawsome time! My hoomans tell me I have the best bum shake in the world that I even give Beyoncé a run for her money! I must say I do enjoy the finer things in life, so if you want to win my heart just give me ham or cheese and I’ll be your best cuddly friend! I’m clean, tidy and very well house trained, sometimes I even put my toys away after myself! So if you want a fine mind, exceptional eye for detail and an awesome booty shake - I'm your dog!

Barney Bear

Frequently barked questions about Barney

My nickname is...

Barney Bear Chow

My breed is...

Chow Chow

What makes me special...

Some say it's my dashing good looks but I think it's my sassy personality!

When I met my human:

Barney and his hooman Sophie

I summoned my hoomans to Wales on 20th January 2018 to pick me up and return me to their home (MY CASTLE!).

Favourite playtime activity:

Roly polying down the field with my pawpals!

Best party trick:

I like to shake it like a Polaroid picture!

I bark at...

Mean people who don't share cheese!

Favourite place to sleep:

On the balcony

Spreadeagled on the balcony so I can look over my minions.

Naughtiest/cheekiest habit:

Stealing the tea towel from the oven, I don't understand why my hooman keeps putting it there!

Favourite walk:

My favourite walk would be in the big forest near me as I love to sniff EVERYTHING! There are so many different smells and lots of other pawpals so I have the best time ever, every time I go!

My best day would be…

I'd wake up in a house made of cheese, my slaves (hoomans) would bring me a three-course breakfast in bed - of course, this would consist of cheese and ham.. maybe some chicken, dependent on my mood! I'd then take a wander up to the park (nothing too strenuous after my big breakfast!) have a lie down in the sun and catch some rays. Once I've caught the rays and napped, I'd invite all my pawpals over, making sure the hoomans are cooking a BBQ for us to feast on, then we would play all different pawty games! I get quite tired so I would have some more cheese then wander back to the hoomans' bed and relax!

My best friend is...

Bella, she is my girlfriend too!

One other thing you should know about me...

I like cheese... I don't think I've mentioned it before.

Going for a run

We can't wait to see what Barney sniffs out on his dog-friendly cottage break - until then, you can pick up your dog and bone and hit 'follow' on his Instagram page

You'd be barking mad not to meet our other winners, too!
