SPECIAL BULLETIN-The Death of Barney

We have just learned there has been a tragic accident that you may want to gather the children until you are ready to break the news to them.  Barney, that lovable children's dinosaur is dead.  We are getting a live report from the scene at the 24 Paws of Love and from what we understand involves a certain pair known as the Front Dogs. 

Jean, are you there?

Tom, I'm here with the Front Dogs from the 24 Paws of Love where it looks as if Barney was buried alive.  If you look closely you will see his feet sticking out from the dirt along with Chance and Blaze who in their digging frenzy say they "accidentally" buried Barney in the process.  Here's what the Front Dogs have to say:  

Jean: "Chance and Blaze, can you tell us what happen here?"
Chance:  "I love you, You love me, We're a happy family.  I love you, You love me..."
Blaze:  "Chance, SHUT UP!!"
Jean:  "It seems Chance is in some sort of Barney trance.  Blaze, can you tell us what happened?" 

Blaze:  "Well, we were trying to dig for squirrels and Barney opposed the idea, being the "loving fool" he is.  He started singing that stupid song over and over, trying to stop us, until Chance joined in with him and well, that's when the milkbone crumbled.  I just kept digging and looking for squirrels.  I don't know how Barney got under all the dirt...!" 
Jean:  "And there you have it Tom, right from the dog's mouth.  All Barney wanted to do was share his love with all of the woodland creatures only to come to his own demise trying to express that love.  Children everywhere will be heartbroken as they remember this sad day for the rest of their lives.  

Blaze do you have any last words?"

 Mission accomplished!

What a funny post! Thanks for the Saturday Smiles. But we do have to tell you that somehow Barney has been regenerated and he is alive and well in a toy box here along with BJ and Baby Bop.

Happy Saturday.

This made my weekend! I HATED that stupid Dinosaur or whatever he was. My brother would watch that show growing up and trust me, it didn't do him any favors!

Oh, this was just too funny! I just read it to my daughter and we are laughing so hard! I have to share this with my friends on the FiveSibes Facebook page. Love it! Love it! As a photojournalist by trade, I just love the interview! Kudos to the Front Dogs (for finally disposing of every parent's nightmare purple dinosaur!) and kudos to Jean and Tom for their reporting style! "Paw"some post!

Oh no looks like some fun was had at your house. Hope no one is going to be missing their Barney too much. Davinia and Indiana only dig stuff up. Mostly disgusting stuff too.

Bailey Be Good! said...

Oh my goodness... you had me so nervous that I went to get a tissue before I continued reading!

I'm glad it was just a toy and not a real furry! Good thing -- we've never liked Barney at our house. :)

Woofs & Happy Mommy Day hugs,

I was a little scared at first there! But, then as I kept reading the story, all I could think of was "Thank goodness!!!"

Oh My this is the most hilarious post!!! Thank you Blaze! That song grates on my last nerve almost as much at "It's a small world." does!
