Meet Harley

This is Harley. (sleeping in the cats' bed!) We got her a little over a week ago, from a girl who posted an ad on Craigslist. I was actually on there looking for Boston Terriers, and came across her. Her description sounded perfect and there was something about her picture that gave me a feeling that she was meant to be our dog. I e-mailed the owner, and here she is! She was originally dropped off as a little puppy on a farm in TN. The people kept her, but had to keep her outside because they had several small dogs in the house. Their daughter eventually took her up here to Louisville because she had a lot of land, but got a divorce soon after and had to move into a 1 bedroom apt.

Our original plan was to get a Boston Terrier now, from a BT rescue, and then in a few years when the kids are older, get a bigger dog from the Humane Society. I guess we're doing things a little backwards, but Harley is a great dog, so it was fate. She's around 9 months old we are told, is already spayed, up-to-date on her shots, on heart-worm and flea control, and HOUSEBROKEN. I'm so happy that I don't have to housebreak a puppy. I imagine that potty-training a 2-year old and a puppy at the same time do not go together well.

She's well-behaved, and only torments the cats a little. She's great with the kids too, which is very important. We're not sure what she's mixed with, but we think that because of her markings and coat, she may be a Lab/AmStaff mix.

She loves to be around us, and follows us around the house. If we leave, she tries to run out the door to go with us, and when we get home, it's amazing how excited she is! She loves to sleep in our bed, too. Last night, I tossed and turned because Harley was laying in between Joe and I in our queen sized bed all night, with her head on my pillow.

We are so excited about this addition to our family, so I had to share her with you all. I'll be back soon with Halloween pictures of our pirate and sugar plum fairy!
