So when Jim sets off into a tunnel without him, Barney is distraught. Luckily, another boat owner gives him a ride through the tunnel. When he gets to the other end Jim's boat is moored up - but Jim isn't on it! And in their efforts to be reunited, man and dog just keep missing each other until poor Barney is completely worn out. However, finally brave dog Barney has to overcome his fear and enter the nasty tunnel - alone.

Fairground Surprise

Barney the Boat Dog is fun, warm and a delight to read for boys and girls, alike. Jim's grandson Freddie has come to stay with Barney and Jim for a few days, but Freddie's parents think Jim's getting too old to live on a narrowboat and that he should sell Whistling Jack and buy a bungalow. Jim's not at all happy about this and gets very anxious. When Jim starts sleepwalking Barney knows he must keep a careful eye on Jim and when Jim falls and breaks his leg it's Barney who comes to the rescue. Luckily, Barney has made another dog friend and so Barney manages to raise this dog's owner who calls the ambulance. Despite Jim's leg being in plaster Freddie and Jim enjoy their few days together and Jim finds a way to carry on living the life he loves - on Whistling Jack with Barney.
