Nicknames: Harley-Barley, Harley-Bear, Coco-Puff, Under Dog, & his rapper name from his furend Sid is Coco Puff Beany
Birthday: February 28th 2002
Likes: He loves playing with his stuffies, kongs, balls and swimming in the pool
Pet-Peeves: Wearing his anti-jumperoo harness! :O
Favorite Toy: Stuffies, squeekies, or anything the other 2 dorks are playing with.
Favorite Food: He's the only dog in this house that's not food driven... but he really likes baby carrots
Favorite Walk: Anywhere we want to go, he's ready and doesn't NEED a leash, but has one anyway.
Best Tricks: He's been professionally trained and has a resume' of tricks a mile long. My favorite one is putting a treat on his nose and he leaves it there until you release the command- amazing concentration!
Arrival Story: The family that he lived with since he was 8 weeks old decided they didn't have time for him anymore so they surrendered him to the Mid-FL Retriever Rescue. I volunteer for the rescue so I picked him up after a visit with my Mom and Dad because he lived in the same town as they do. I immediately fell in love with him, he's such a love sponge and I felt so sorry for him being surrendered to a rescue with 30+ other dogs when he's used to being the only one. We fostered him for only 2 days but he became a part of our hearts. My other dogs love him, Chris loves him and he bonded with all of us the day he walked in the door.
Bio: He's adapted really well into a house with 3 other big dogs and a small little weiner dog. Harley loves the water and he, Jake and Harmony have a grande ol' time in the pool keeping their cool this summer.
Mom came home yesterday after being gone for 2 days only to find me with a hematoma on my ear... no clue why... so Mom gets her best friend on the phone (she's a vet tech) and gets the low-down skinny on what to do for me. Even though Mom's a nurse, she teared up while piercing my ear with a needle and sucking the blood out with a syringe! I was really good though and didn't even flinch just to make it easier for her and also hoping I'd be rewarded with a great big treatie!!!!
Unfortunately, she rewarded my perfect behavior with humilation!!!! She's got this tacky stuff wrapped around my ear and then tacked my ear to my head and wrapped me up like a dogger mummy so I can't shake my ear and make things worse!!!! I told her I was a lab and not an Eygptian mummy but it didn't matter cause Mom mummy-fied me anyway!!!
While laughing at me, Mom took some pictures but I'm begging her not to post them on my page cause I don't want proof that I LOOK LIKE A DORK!!!!
p.s. I'm fine, my ear is fine, but my ego has been deflated into dork-dom!
p.s.s. Mom DID post a humiliation picture, but she gave me a great big homemade treatie so I guess I can forgive her! ;)
