The Life of a Harri

As stated in her bio, Harri came to our family as a 3-day old puppy in 1997. Harri, her mother Missy, and her sister/littermate Hortense came to live with us after Missy was found months earlier, pregnant with 12 puppies, on the winter streets of Detroit.

Now living in the suburbs, they were able to run freely in THEIR backyard, knowing that there was always food (sometimes TOO much food), shelter, and most importantly love.

Harri always had the same demeanor - playful and full of energy. She was always our little ray of sunshine; she had a tendency to light up a room with her "smile".

As she grew older, her light never faded, but she grew weaker as all of our bodies tend to do with age. Unfortunately, her body was unwilling to keep up with her mind and we were left with no other choice but to send her to the Rainbow Bridge.

I take comfort in the fact that she is no longer in any pain and although she's no longer with us, her light lives on through our memories and stories and her "smile" will never fade from our hearts.
