Harley was born Dec 28,2012, Bobby took her everywhere with him from the time she came to live with us. He took her to work with him to stores, friends, family, and neighbors houses. .When she was home she would bark to let everyone know he was approaching home before we could hear his truck pull in the driveway. She slept in the bed with us until she couldn’t jump up anymore, but she slept beside us on the floor or on the rug in our room. Bobby always walked Harley in the back and front yard playing fetch with her. She had two chocolate lab sisters who loaded our bed down every night until they passed. Cheyenne died in Dec. of 2018 and Dakota in April of 2019.Soon after she acquired a mixed lab brother, Micah and mixed breed sister, Summer. Seven months later came her English cream doodle sister puppy. They were the best of buds, playing tug of war to fetch and digging holes in the yard. They were all spoiled, loved, and never left our side. Harley lost her favorite human, her daddy, Bobby in Sept. of 2022. She grieved him, looking for him at his truck and in the yard everyday. I continued caring for her after and began walking her in the front yard to meet the neighbors. She would sit by my side while I sat on the front porch and walked by my side without a leash. In Oct. 2022 she had her well check-up and appeared fine except for minor back issues. She had lost 20lbs. By Jan. 6, 2023 she saw the vet and had lost another 16 lbs. After lab work and x-rays she was diagnosed with lung cancer and severe hip and spine abnormalities. On Jan. 14, 2023 she was taken tot he New River Animal hospital in severe pain and she couldn’t lift herself. I had been walking her and lifting her with a sling to get her to her feet to walk. On Jan. 15th our vet changed her meds to help her, but the next day she was eating half her food and collapsing in the yard. By Monday, the 16th the vet said to bring her in to evaluate her. She died there peacefully. She joined her daddy, Bobby, so now they can be together fishing at a pond or do whatever they want to do and are pain free.
