Arrival Story: Sophie was going to doggie daycare one day and the owner had 2 miniature schnauzers for sale. That afternoon we brought Harley D home with us and the rest is history. He loves to be the center of attention and the faces he makes are unbelievable. He is a certified Therapy Dog and he is amazing to watch him with patients, family, staff and students. He is a very loving boy.

We all know that when Say Media bought Dogster/Catster that things began to change and not in a good way, but we all hung in there because of all the wonderful friends we have made through the years and all over the world. We know and understand the great love we have for our furry friends and have always had the support and understanding from everyone. We have all laughed and cried together through good times and bad and for this I am so very thankful to all of you. Where will be all go? I know that a lot of you are on FB and we will be able to stay in touch with each other but for those of you who choose not to go to FB, I would love to have your emails so that these friendships will continue. There is no other network that I have found where we can continue this type of being together. Sorry Say Media, but I really don't give a rip about your magazine!
I know that some of you may know that I visit at a convent with 2 nuns. I always visit them on Mondays before I visit the hospital. I love my 2 sisters because I sit in their laps and enjoy their loving. Last Monday Sister always has a slice or two of banana for me and we walk in the convent garden too. Well, one of my Sisters had to make her trip to the Human Rainbow Bridge. Her funeral was yesterday and Mom and I got to go. My other favorite nun took mom and I up to the casket and as mom held me I went and sniff her hand. Mom said I look at her, then back an mom and I seemed to understand that she was really gone. I was a good boy and sat in a pew for the mass. Afterwards I got to meet some of her family and friends. Everyone said I was a really good boy and that I needed to go and see the pictures that were on display. There were 3 pictures of me and that's how come so many people knew me. I'm gonna miss her a whole bunch. Fly free Sister dePorres and watch over me please.
Well yesterday afternoon mom and a neighbor were standing in the driveway talking and they both look up and here came a Westie and a Schnauzer walking up to them! Mom picked up the Westie and Gayla picked up the Schnauzer. I just knew that the Zaidie from Toronto had come to visit me and brought a friend! Well, mom checked the tag and it said Peggy on the Westie and boy was I disappointed. The tags said they lived over on the next block so mom and Gayla popped them in her car and off they went to the house. The people were cleaning their garage and the pups got out and they didn't even know it. So mom and Gayla walked around the house and said "are you missing two dogs"? They thanked them very much and mom came home. I sure was disappointed cause I know that if it had been the Z-Pup he woulda brought me some haggis and scotch! BOL
