"I enrolled Barney in obedience school. If I had known how being ‘bad’ would be part of his charm and would add to his success on camera, I might have given this more thought." — Dick Wolfsie

Television reporter Dick Wolfsie was walking out his front door on the way to the studio one wintry morning when he found a shivering beagle pup on his fr

"Oh no," you must be thinking, "not ANOTHER dog book?!" Yes, heartwarming tales (see what I did there?) about canines are not in short supply (I've even been tempted to write one of my own), but Dick Wolfsie's "Mornings with Barney" connected with me on a number of levels:

1.) I'm a proud beagle-daddy to two representatives of this howling breed (one of who looks remarkably like Barney).

2.) I, too, work the local morning news shift, and sympathize/empathize with many of the observations the autho
Having found a stray beagle on the side of the road shortly before reading this book, I could relate to the author's tales of mayhem on the part of his beagle. Funny book that dog lovers must read.

love this book!! I especially love the pizza incident! that beagles love food is a given but Barney took it a notch higher by also eating the pizza box!! now THATS impressive!!
A wonderful story about a celebrity beagle and the people who loved him. My pup looks a lot like him (although, thank heaven, my guy is not nearly as mischievous).
Barney is truly a beagle!

If you loved "Marley and Me",and who did'nt,you'll love Barney's story!Like Marley,Barney was a mischeif maker.Like John GRogan,Mr. Wolfe works with the media.You'll find many similarities about both dogs!I recommend this book highly!!Go read Barney's story.You'll be glad you did!!!
Neat story of the bond between man and dog. Barney was a stray that was sitting on Dick Wolfsie's porch one moring when he went to work. Barney's big brown eyes found him a best friend and business partner as he and Dick went on to do news anchor spots for over a decade in Indianapolis.
nook book. A mildly entertaining story of a beagle found by a TV reporter who took the dog almost everywhere with him on location. The dog became immensely popular in central Indiana. There are some cute stories of the dog's shenanigans, typical of most untrained beagles.
Great book, reminded me of Dewey at times, but I really liked it. Very light easy read.

Mind you, it has not made me want to own a beagle for a pet, as much as I love Dogs. This book basically confirms all that I've ever heard about owning a beagle.
A Christmas present from Matt & Keri. Interesting story of local celebrity Dick Wolfsie & canine partner Barney. Brings home the one thing I always say about pets, They don't live long enough!
Enjoyed reading about adventures on the air & at the State Fair.
I found this to be a great story of Dick and his best friend and co-worker Barney. I think Barney really deserved to be called an extraordinary beagle. He truly touched so many people lives and seemed to enjoy every minute of it.

Mildly amusing, but not very well written. The writing style is choppy. I wonder if Dick Wolfsie just compiled and edited some of his columns to create this book. At least it's short, so you won't waste too much time reading it.
Lake County Public Library Indiana
"Who knew WISH TV in Indy has a canine star on it's morning show for 12 years. He warmed the hearts of his public and gave them something to look forward to when they had to get up in the morning."
Enjoyed this account of the life of a quirky beagle and his TV newsman owner. Not as good as Marley and Me but definitely a well written humorous saga of life with a mischievous,independent hound.

This was a sweet book and a must read for dog lovers!
A must read for all dog lovers!
