Martha Monday--and Barley's anniversary

Recently, Martha adopted a new dog.  Ghengis Khan (GK for short) is a descendent of Paw-Paw, Martha's beloved Chow Chow who passed away some time ago.  Still a puppy, GK has been featured on The Martha Stewart Show, the Martha Blog and on the Daily Wag, a blog "written" by Francesca and Sharkey, Martha's two Frenchies.

GK is super cute, but I have to say I prefer my own loveable hound, Barley. 

Barley has been with us for six years now.  To celebrate this anniversary, we got him a new pet bed.  He seems to enjoy it. 

As I've mentioned before, we got Barley from Chicago Animal Control.  If you have room in your heart, home and budget, please consider adopting an animal from a shelter.  Every happy home should include a happy pet!

your dog looks huge! how big is he?

90 pounds. He needs to lose 10 or so, and we're working on that. ;)

Barley is adorable! I'm the Pets editor of I just wanted to let you and your readers know about what we're doing to help adoptable animals like Barley. Right now, we're participating in the Purina ONE Tour for Heroes, which is crossing the country with donated food at 11 shelters. Also, every time you share an adoptable pet's profile from on your Facebook page, Purina ONE will donate $1 to help feed pets in need. Thanks for all the great work! -Mark Ganem, Pets Editor,
