This Barley (#3329), a quiet (relatively) and obedient (relatively), six year old golden girl. She arrived in the United States on February 1, 2020. Before coming to the US, GBR knew she had one, perhaps two, bad hips. Near the end of February, she had surgery on her left to remove a piece of the femur head that was rubbing on the inside of her hip joint. She is scheduled for surgery on her right hip in June.
Barley loves her toys but should not be given fluffy stuffies unsupervised – she will rip them apart and begin eating them. Stuffies with no stuffing is fine as are balls and kongs. She is a good fetcher. We know she is feeling better because she has discovered that she can now raise up on her rear legs and counter-surf.
