Arrival Story:
I was never really a dog person until this little cutie pie showed up in my office parking lot. She was so meek and cried and cried. I took her home and had her worms and fleas treated and got her spayed. She is a very happy girl now! She's had a tough time realizing she's not the boss but I think finally she's chilling out. She doesn't herd her mommy and daddy anymore!

Harper is the perfect example of a rescue dog gone right. When I got her she was really, really bad. She would bite all the time, whine non stop practically, go potty in the house, pull on the leash, bark and bark. She wasn't affectionate but had terrible separation anxiety. She was wild. Slowly but surely she has transformed into an amazing pet. She is more loving every day. She has stopped messing in the house. NO biting. Rarely whines and the barking has slowed way down. It's incredible. She still has problems (she snaps and barks at the other dogs at feeding time, jumps like a mad thing etc) but she's way, way better.

The Notorious Harper Lee

East Her

Mommy and Daddy keep talking about this thing called East Her. Do you guys know what this is? Something about a basket with candy? Daddy says he's going to hide an East Her basket for Mommy. Why? Was she bad? Why can't he just give her the basket? Mommy seems to like it. If it were me, I'd tell him to hand over the treats and no one gets hurt. I don't care if the East Her Bunny is gonna get me or not. They are trying to scare me, "Oh Harper Lee! The East Her Bunny is coming! You better be a good girl." If I were scared of a bunny then I wouldn't be a dog. I will eat that bunny if comes in my house. I'm just sayin'.
I think my stepsisters are coming soon. Mommy said I need my friends cuz I am SOOOO bored. But guess what? It's kinda warmer outside and that means I can play outside without being that cold. I love that. There are so many birds that need chasing. They got brave over the winter and I need to teach them who's boss.
Ok well someone should be coming home soon so I gotta practice looking cute so I can get extra treats. See ya!


Nap time

Well, well, well. Here I am. Alone again. I thought for sure Daddy was staying with me all day but nope. He's off to get a thing called a badge. It was so yucky out this morning. I was being bombarded by the thing I hate most in the world- rain! But Daddy made me go outside anyway. He won't let me go pee pee on the couch. But I really want to. Someday I will psyche them out again and I WILL pee on the couch. I'm just biding my time.
Anywho. Mommy left early and didn't even give me a treat. I got lots of hugs and kisses though. I walked her to the door and gently placed my paw on her arm like I do every morning. It's my way of saying "I don't want you to go cuz I love you, Mom, but I need some new clothes so get to work." When Mommy came home the other day Daddy had a surprise. He told Mommy that my sweater was too small on my arms but he fixed it! He told her he made it into a "wifebeater" whatever that is. You should have seen the look on Mommy's face!! He cut the arms off my nice sweater. It works but isn't too pretty. I don't care. It keeps me toasty warm.
Everytime I have to be home alone Mommy or Daddy puts my cozy bed with a fleece blankie next to the heater vent in the kitchen (which is my favorite place to be in the world!!). They give me my Nylabone and put NPR on so I can be an educated pup. I like it pretty good.
I guess I'll go nap now and wait for someone to come home and play with me.

I'm mad. And sad. Daddy took my little dog friends away again! Why does he do that? Mommy says they have another home and we only get them sometimes. She calls them "step dogs." I like to step on Lily but other than that I don't know what she's talking about.
Daddy was so sneaky and mean. He said "Harper Lee do you want to go outside and play???" I said "Yes! Yes please!" So I went and when I came back in Lily and Ruthie were gone. Long gone out the front door. I could smell where they went. At least I get both the Nylabones now. And all the attention. And all the treats. And more couch space. Nevermind! Sayonara suckers!
