Our Wonderful Miss Harley....

Miss Harley, our smallest dog.
She is a toy fox terrier, weighing around 14lbs.
Of our 5 dogs she is the smallest and meanest.
She takes on cats larger than her.
And she is the best mouser than any cat.

She loves to sleep and cuddle.
And follow you around everywhere.

Please don't take my picture!

We got Harley when Little Man was 7 mnths old.
She was so smalls she fit into both of my hands.
She only weighed around 1 1/2 lbs.

Her and Little Man hung out and got into trouble together as they both grew.

And of course being a small dog, she loves to sleep with you and be on blankets.

Miss Harley became ill a few weeks ago.  So i took her to the vet.  After a few tests we learned many things.
She had anemia, she had finally become diabetic and her liver was shutting down.
We decided to medicate her for a weeks time to get her all better and get the fluids off her body.
Unfortunately, the meds did not effect anything. 
A week ago today we decided we didn't want her to suffer or get worse, so we helped her cross over the rainbow bridge.
It was one of the hardest things I have had to do, but I did it for her.

Our family has a piece of it missing, And her sister Kimber misses her.
We had almost 12 years with her. And she gave us love, laughs and her trust.
We love and miss you Harley.

I am so sorry. A dog is an amazing pet. They love unconditionally. You did the right thing, though I know it doesn't make it any eaiser.

The love of a faithful dog is a cherished part of one's life -- for those lucky enough to experience it. Be joyful that you had one of the best in Harley and enjoy your many memories.
