UPDATE: It is with a heavy heart that I write we are a dog-free home now. We lost Harley to a stroke in May 2013 and Jack to Pancreatitis in August 2013.
Nick and I had only been married 6 weeks when I decided we needed a dog. So we brought home Harley, a 6 week old Golden Retriever. She was our first child. She was a difficult puppy and destroyed our first apartment.
After a few months we felt that Harley was lonely so we got 8 week old Jackson. They were instant best friends.
After a year long courtship they became proud parents to nine puppies. A year later they had a second litter of eleven puppies.
Their puppy making days are over now. These days they spend their days sleeping, eating and playing in the yard.
FUN DOG FACTS:
Harley will eat ANYTHING and I mean ANYTHING
Harley will play fetch with a tennis ball until she falls over
Harley loves to swim
Harley is the definition of persistence, I wish I had an ounce of her determination
Jack loves to chew on sticks and dig holes to no where
Jack is a skilled escape artist, but luckily he always runs away to the park down the street
Jack is a great running partner! We do 3 to 7 miles a week.
Jack only has eyes for Harley, he is a one woman dog. All others we warned!
