Barkley with her new brother, one week-old Ryland, in September 2016. (Emily Ridjaneck)

Name: Barkley
Breed: Staffordshire Terrier

How was your pet’s name chosen?

We joke that she’s named after Charles Barkley but honestly, we just thought it suited her!

What is a fun or quirky fact about your pup?

Two things! She sounds like a dinosaur when she ‘talks’ for treats AND all four legs stick straight out when she lays down on her side to sleep, everyone always points out how funny she looks!

Do you have a favorite walking route, etc.? What is it and why?

Freedom Park! It’s right in town but feels like a world away. We love that it has some elevation change making it a good hike for both human and dog!

If your pet was a famous human, who would they be?

Not applicable – she’s so hilariously unique I just can’t think of anyone
