You may recall Barney.
Rescued by the DSPCA in January after slipping into the
river a water tributary (top) at Kylemore Road in South Dublin.
So badly injured was Barney they only discovered he was a she days later and quickly renamed her Bernie.
It was touch and go for a while but…
From the DSPCA this morning…
We are delighted to announce the arrival of Barney (Bernie’s) foal who was born during the night.
Previously: This Was Barney On Monday
Or, you know, a temporary home.
A mixture of both would be ideal.

Ruby Johnston with Linus the Irish Wolfhound this morning helping to launch the DSPCA Great Irish Dog Walk this September which will see the LARGEST number of dogs ever gathered together in one location in Ireland.
Organisers hope up to 5,000 dogs will attend the 3km stroll in the Phoenix Park, Dublin, on September 28.
We’d take Chompsky, but he hates crowds, other dogs, the Phoenix Park and walking.
A mere something of his former self.
I arrived to the Dublin SPCA with an injured back leg. It was very bad so the only thing to do was to turn me into a 3 legged kitty!! As you can see from my photo I’be been upgraded from a cone of shame and I’m wearing a very fetching inflatable collar but it’s only while my injuries heal. I will be able to live a happy & full life even though I only have 3 legs and I can’t wait to find a home where I can rule the roost!
Shadow, this morning (via DSPCA handler).
Handy for the stills photographer.
