Mornings with Barney: The True Story of an Extraordinary Beagle is Wolfsie’s eighth book. He introduces the books saying, “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. I was impressed with the legendary school’s sale’s pitch, including their money-back guarantee. But when I said my dog was a beagle, there was dead silence on her end of the phone… then a good-natured laugh: ‘I was just kidding about the guarantee.'”
