Max, I was sad to read about your loss. Barkley was truly the perfect dog and clearly a gift in your life. Hopefully there's another little puppy in heaven waiting to be born in the future who will find his way to you and your heart.

How vivid you wrote about your first encounter with Barkley. It must have been one of the best & fortunate decision you gave in your life so that you have never forgotten about any detail . The next Barkley will be very fortunate aswell. I would not restrict my search to only a red short haired Golden Retriever as you did not know that you would end up with Barkley instead of a lab. The right dog will find you

A good friend said this very thing to me just today.

I have looked online at dogs that are available in shelters in my area. It's sort of depressing to see all these dogs that are the result of people's irresponsibility. Beagles crossed with Malamute's, Great Danes crossed with Pitbull's. It is a tragedy on an immense scale. Yet there are points of light. Many people, some of my friends among them, foster as many as three or four dogs at a time as part of a process to find loving homes for as many dogs as possible. Maybe I can do my part by taking on one of these shelter dogs. At this point, all options are on the table.

That would be loveliest thing thing you can do for Barkley. He will guide you to the dog that your soul needs.It may be tomorrow ,it may be next year. It will happen when you are ready both to receive & give. You will by that time maybe already foster a couple of dogs but when it is him or her you will both know
