   Leave a bone for harley

harley-pooch, ms. harley, the harlster,

Quick Bio:

food of any kind, the beach (digging in the sand), belly rubs (or any kind of special attention paid just to her), licking metal (especially keys), and herding things (people, children, leaves blowing in the wind)...

water, she hates to take a bath and leaps over puddles (great for living in Portland, OR), she doesn't care for loud engines (like buses or big trucks or ironically enough, harley davidson motorcycles), and skateboards are her nemisis...

Favorite Toy:
red ring and soccer ball

Favorite Food:
anything, really, as long as it doesn't have honey on it, she'll eat it!

Favorite Walk:
on the beach, wind blowing in her hair

Arrival Story:
i was in a Harley Davidson dealership in San Jose, CA and my mom was waiting for me outside with her Bouvier, Chardonnay, when along came this little fluff that fit in the palm of your hand. luckily, she loved Chardonnay and came right up to my mom. we took her to the Humane Society thinking someone must have lost her, but no one ever came, so I went back 3 days later and Harley became a part of our family!

everyone always asks what breed she is (they want one just like her!) and i have to say, i never met her parents, so i don't know...she definitley has sheltie in her, and my guess is dachshund, but it is simply a guess (she's stubborn as all get out, she has the same bark, and she is pretty long). she was diagnosed in 2002 with immune-mediated polyarthritis, and has been a real trooper as we work to make her better. harley is the best friend anyone could have!
