Sir Harley has manners. We were worried he had an infection when he didn't pee his first 24 hours with us. As it turns out, he simply prefers not to urinate in the presence of a lady. We also learned he has a bladder of steel. Sir Harley is tolerant. After appreciating the beauty and smells of the outdoors yesterday, Sir Harley brought a few undesirable scents back with him. He acknowledged his fate when we closed the bathroom door behind him and he accepted it with grace. Sir Harley does not complain. He never told us about his knees. Only X-rays informed us of the pain he felt. Sir Harley has since received multiple corrective surgeries, compliments of Shadow's Fund, and has remained a ray of smiley sunshine throughout rehabilitation and crate rest.•À%BD%A0 Sir Harley is the strong silent type. He snores like a bear but hasn't barked or whined once since claiming our living room as his study. (Amended: Skateboarders befuddle him and he will bork at them to explain themselves). Sir Harley is grateful. He is so expressive in his gratitude; in fact, he has an injury called 'happy tail.' Breakfast? GRATEFUL. Pets? GRATEFUL. Walkies? GRATEFUL. Nap time? GRATEFUL. Eye contact? GRATEFUL. (In Harley's everlasting gratitude, his happy tail was unable to heal so Shadow's Fund addressed it. Harley now displays his gratitude with a happy wiggle butt). Sir Harley is polite. Yesterday morning at roughly•À%BD%A06am, Sir Harley's steel bladder needed a release. He didn't bark, whine, jump or lick - he just sat down at the head of the bed and smiled until the message was received (he knows we got new carpet this year). Sir Harley makes friends wherever he goes. People? Yes please. Dogs? Better say hi. Cats? The more the merrier. Sir Harley makes everyone feel welcome. As a one-dog welcoming committee, there is no door greeter as wiggly as Sir Harley. If retail stores had Sir Harley mascots, the American economy would be repaired in a matter of days. Sir Harley is monogamous. He finds joy in all human interaction but what he really wants is a warm bed and his one true love (that's you - and maybe a small pup or some kitty cat sidekicks). Sir Harley is charismatic - I ran a few errands today and came home to see EVAN being escorted down the sidewalk by SIR HARLEY. This is a first. Evan does not leash dogs and take them outside. Harley is officially the first to persuade him to do so. Sir Harley does not beg. He understands that 'no means no' and he will not push the issue on that pint of Ben N Jerry's. Bonus: He won't shame you for eating it all in one sitting either. He knows you are beautiful at any size. Sir Harley rolls with the flow. You wanna sleep all day? So does he. You wanna party outside? So does he. You wanna have an existential crisis because life is an illusion? Sir Harley knows you will calm down if you rub his belly and he will offer it to you gladly. Sir Harley will make some man or woman very lucky when they welcome this class act gentle giant into their home.
