letters Dog Days of Winter. Surf’s Up, Dawg.


My mother’s dog, DuBay and I can not get on the same page. DuBay wants to stay in Wisconsin and now that I’m retired, I want to come live in Florida fulltime. My mom’s answer is, “leave her alone.” Dee and Bob Ryan Lake DuBay, WI.


Rockstars, Drago & Zeus. Photograph of Mr. Barkley by Tina VaLant. Je suis désolé.


I just wanted to let you know that on page 99 of your winter issue, you had my little baby’s name and age wrong. Her name is Precious and she is four years old. Also I LOVE the magazines and everything you all do with and about the dogs. Thankyou. Trudy Elmore Tampa, FL


We love the painting of our boys. The artist you selected did a fantastic job. The only thing I can say that expresses how much we love it is: “If the house catches on fire this is what I am grabbing on my way out.” We love our boys so much and this painting captures the love in their eyes and both their attentiveness as well as their “snuggy” personalities. Perfect. Dave and Kennetha Eikelberg Orlando, FL


Editor’s Note: Grand Champion Drago and his housemate, Zeus are gorgeous Black Russian Terriers. This portrait of them was painted by Florida artist Karren Garces, exclusively for the 2013 winter issue cover of The New Barker.

I just wanted to say thank you for the great picture of my dog Mr. Barkley in the surfing article. Everyone in Brevard who saw it kept telling me about it. You have a great magazine and a very talented photographer. I am part of Golden Retriever Rescue of Mid Florida and we will be visiting Tampa during the annual reunion in February. Hope to see you there. Reggie Correll & Mr. Barkley-Surfdog Cocoa Beach, FL
