Barney Helps Wyatt Heal

Tripawds spokesdawg GSD Wyatt heals from gastropexy surgery with Big Barney wearing e-collar cones.

While we wait for news about the next adventures of the KillBarney Tour, Spirit Jerry’s Big Barney just wanted to let followers know that he helped Wyatt recover from his recent gastropexy surgery by commiserating with the conehead while wearing his own cone of shame.

All Dressed Up and Everywhere to Go

KillBarney Tour announces changes, adds mini-Barney for the enjoyment of overseas Tripawds community members.

The KillBarney Tour is officially all dressed up and ready to go everywhere!

When we started the KillBarney Tour, we had no idea that it would become so popular and would touch the lives of so many Tripawds and their people. Over two years later, Barney and his giant suitcase have traveled throughout North America and even over to England.

You can see he’s already traveled far and wide, but we thought it would be great if even more Tripawds members around the globe could become a part of the KillBarney Tour experience.

Meet Travelin’ Barney

When Barney returned to Tripawds headquarters for a visit with Spokesdawg Wyatt Ray, he convinced Jerry’s pack to send off his smaller, singing cousin, “Travelin’ Barney.” We are hoppy to announce that now there are two of Spirit Jerry’s favorite Barney dolls traveling around the world, terrorizing Tripawds everywhere!

Wyatt and the Traveling Barneys

This Barney might be smaller in stature than the original, but he is also  covered in Jerry slobber too, and is perfectly suited for overseas travel. In his suitcase, we have packed 1/2 of all the goodies that previous hosts have added to the tour. Travelin’ Barney wants to visit foreign friends, like Tripawds UK members, so we made sure his suitcase is light enough to keep him affordably globetrotting to places outside North America.

Killbarney Tour Goodies

In addition to having Barney’s cousin join the tour, we also made two copies of the original KillBarney Tour journal – featuring the notes of all those Tripawds Barney has visited. We’ve also included a new Tripawds Journal in each box so future tour hosts can add their own experience to “The Barney Chronicles, Volume II.

Both Barneys are now on the way to their next stops on the KillBarney Tour, all dressed up in their Bret Michaels Pets Rock dresses and ready to pawty!

If you want to host either Barney, here are the rules. If you want Barney to pay a visit, post your request here in the Forums. Be sure to indicate where you are located and keep in mind these important notes:

  • Travelin’ Barney is intended for oveseas members
  • Upon receipt of the box, tour participants must keep one Barney tour item 
  • Recipients must replace the kept item with a small, lightweight memento
  • Help us keep the box the same size, to keep shipping costs down

We hope everyone will get to host these special little guys at some point. Reading about other folks’ Tripawds adventures is a warm-fuzzy experience not to be missed, and including your own Tripawds’ Barney adventures adds to the heartfelt journal that brings hoppy tears to the eyes of so many in this community.

And now, without further adieu, we bid the Barneys farewell again and look forward to following their adventures with three legged dogs around the world. Stay tuned to hear find out which Tripawds members will hosting Barney next!

Wyatt Welcomes Barney at the Ranch

Three legged German Shepherd Wyatt welcomes the Kill Barney Tour to Vickers Dude Ranch in Lake City Colorado.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

After several harrowing cross-country trips and long, lonely periods of isolation, Barney hitched himself up to a wagon train and headed out to Lake City, Colorado to spend some time at Spirit Jerry’s favorite dude ranch, where Tripawds Spokespup Wyatt Ray is currently employed as a ranch dawg.

Wyatt opens the KillBarney box

Wyatt wasn’t expecting a guest. But the box sure smelled good, so he dove right in! Suddenly, a stinky purple beast pops out and shouts, “Hello! I love you!”

“Really? Are you kidding me? He’s back?” said Wyatt.

Oh not again. “You really aren’t cut out for ranch life,” he told this raggedy traveler, “but I can show you the ropes, maybe make something out of your sorry butt.”

Wyatt greets Barney

Wyatt quickly showed Barney to his bunk, and stuffed his big nose down into the box. Suddenly, a scent arose from the depths, a scent that brought back memories of good times, and his favorite bitch, Codie Rae from the Oaktown Pack.

Wyatt sniffs Oaktown Pack

Back when the Oaktown Pack hosted the little beast, his fake cousin Floyd tried to steal the show. Codie’s gang did their best to decapitate the poseur, but they failed in their attempt. Now, what was left of Floyd was hiding in the box.

But he couldn’t escape the powerful nose of Wyatt Ray.  “Hey, it’s that creepy wanna-be Barney!” He could smell the Oaktown Pack’s drool all over his tattered remains.

So he dug in, and continued to shred his remnants to pieces, as Barney watched from the dark corner of the bunkhouse, and shuddered . . . .

Stay tuned for more adventures with Barney at Wyatt on the ranch before he hits the road again soon!

Be sure to post in the I Want Barney forum if you understand the meaning of this tour an want your Tripawd to host the KillBarney Tour!

Another Belated Barney Sighting

Rumor has it, Jerry’s little purple nemesis is making his way back stateside after his visit with Dizzy in the UK. But we are still awaiting word about his next destination.

In the meantime we did find this photo of Wyatt with one of Barney’s brethren, taken at the Animas Forks ghost town on the Alpine Loop during his stay at Vickers Ranch.
