As of the publication date for this first KillBarney Tour Guidebook, the Tripawds Traveling Barney had visited the homes of 44 Tripawds members all around the world. This book documents the first 32 visits.


Be prepared to laugh and cry as you read the hand-written notes from Tripawds members who have had some play time with Barney and their pups. Barney visited a number of dogs just in time to say goodbye, while many others showed him a good time – making videos and taking photos at local attractions.


Learn about Barney’s  visit with the Queen and his poop patrol duties with Gayle. Read about his his spa day with Abby and his narrow escape from the hurt locker. From lazy days with tri-pug Maggie to final days with Alexander the Great Dane, dogs of all sizes have left their smells on Barney and put their paw prints in this book.


Once the original trip journal published in these pages had filled up with notes from all of Barney’s previous hosts, Rizzo sent the box back to Jerry’s pack. The Tripawds team then made two copies of the book, split up all the mementos, and sent two Barneys back out on the road.

Julia Is Not Impressed With Barney

This just in from Tripawds member lovejake:

Well… the box has arrived! I have attached a photo of (unimpressed) Julia (Princess Poo Poo pants).


So much to take in! I look forward to exploring the box’s contents over the next few days. Wish Jake and Finley could have been a part of this, but I know they are the reason we are part of the Tripawds community.

A Big Day in Barney History

Tripawds Traveling Barney visits Jill in the Big Apple for a New York City stop on the KillBarney Tour and the first stay with a three legged cat.

Not only has the KillBarney Tour just made its first stop in the Big Apple, Jerry’s little purple friend is now visiting Tripawds kitty blogger Jill

Oh boy Oh boy Oh boy! It’s Barney’s first trip to the Big Apple and his FIRST TIME visiting a Tripawd Kitty Cat!! Good think there is a dawg here too or he might not get played with!

Barney and Jill

Jill seems to think he is here to give her belly rubs and Jack seems to be more interested in the box Barney came in, while Jill’s Aunt Belle has been busy destroying Barney from the second he got out of the box. Barney got a costume change as soon as he got here. Do you like his new digs?

Barney and Jill

Stay tuned to Jill’s Journey for more photos and details about Barney’s adventures in the Big Apple.
