Barney has some exciting news about a fun feature coming soon to the Killbarney blog … Barney’s tour is about to begin!
Stay tuned for guest posts featuring one of Jerry’s favorite Barney dolls in photos with Tripawds members around the world. Barney’s first stop was a recent visit with Caira Sue. And we hear those two had some fun on the beach. Stay tuned for details!
Where will Barney end up next? Only Caira Sue knows! But once he gets there, we’ll be sure to let you know here. Here’s how it works… whoever receives Barney must send us a photo of him together with their tripawd. Include a few words about the visit, and we’ll publish a Killbarney post about the adventure. Tripawds Bloggers can then follow up with more photos and details about the visit in their own blog.
They must then forward Barney onto another Tripawds member, in a timely manner. Simply send someone a PM (Private Message) in the forums to see if they’re interested and get their mailing address. Inside the box is a journal for keeping track of where Barney has been.
Over time, we will all get to see Barney with Tripawds members everywhere. And we’ll see how he holds up! If Barney loses a limb – or two– it’s noting a little needle and thread can’t fix before he gets back in the box.
Once we post the photos here in the Killbarney blog, members with their own blogs should post a follow-up with additional details and more photos, linking back to the original Killbarney post. Any questions?
OK. For clarification then, we present…
The KillBarney Tour Rules of Engagement:
- The Killbarney Tour is a stealth operation
- Recipients of Barney should email Jerry or asend PM to Admin with a few words about their visit along with a photo.
- Killbarney will then update his Tour Map and publish a post here announcing the latest stop.
- After that, members can then follow up with more details and photos in their own blog. (Non-blogging members can feel free to submit up to three photos.)
- PM the member of your choice to receive Barney next to get their mailing address, and send him on his way in a timely manner.
- Be sure to sign the trip journal included with Barney, and feel free to add a memento from your home town.*
- The host Tripawd to draw first blood shall have his/her people mend Barney, and add a needle with a spool of heavy duty thread to the box.
- Other than that, anything goes!
- Get creative with your KillBarney photo opportunities, or make a video.
- Play by the rules and no one gets hurt … except maybe Barney!
*Once a few trinkets are in the box, we could treat this like a geo cache with each new host keeping an item and replacing it with something of their own. We don’t want that box getting too heavy!

Oh! I’d love to participate in the Killbarney tour… but Jake is no longer here with us… Does it still count if his baby brother Wolfie gets it??
Angel Jake’s Mom
Of course!Jake will always be with you in spirit. And whoever receives Barney can pass him along to any Tripawds member of their choosing.
This sounds so cool! Nova would LOVE to get her jowls on Barney!
Barney is probably as big as Maggie, but she is always game to take on the big boys.
Does he make noise? If so little sister Tani would probably add some teeth marks.
Karen and the pug girls
What a cool idea!!! I’m anxious to see where Barney’s travels take him/her/it.
jack, the chauffeur.
Barney does not make any noise (except maybe screams of terror-haha). Caira didn’t really understand stuffed animals, until my father-in-law moved in with his terrier. Now all she knows is that you are supposed to punch it with your nose to make it squeak! So she kept punching it and looking at us every 5 or 6 punches to see why it wouldn’t squeak! After awhile she totally got into the spirit of KillBarney. It was awesome. I’m packing Barney (all washed and dried due to the type of adventure he had-don’t want to spoil the story as it isn’t “up” yet) tonight to go on to his next adventure. Who will it be? Where will he go? Muah hahahaha-I’m not telling!
Oh how fun!! I can’t wait to see all of the photos.
That’s the Killbarney spirit! Your post is online now. Thanks for kicking off the tour in such a fun way. Can’t wait to see where Barney is headed.
grrrrrrr. let me at ’em! Opie
This is so great! I absolutely loooove the idea of putting my own tooth marks on that ugly purple creature (and then making mom sew it up)!
Ohhh, I’d love to get a piece of that purple action, I am partiel to the tiny bean filling, the poly fill just doesn’t taste the same and my mom likes to try to vacume millions of tiny “beans” out of the carpet. My pawdawan senses tell me that a puppy tripawd could defeat darth Barney and bring peace to the tripawd community!
Can our Hunter get in on this action?! Let a chocolate lab have a crack at good ole Barney! He lives in Hartland, WI.
Please post in the I Want Barney forum topic to let future hosts know Hunter would like to sink his teeth into the little purple guy!
OMG – this is so awesome!!! I love this idea! Can’t wait to follow all the adventures!!!
