Thanking and Thinking Thursday

Here is the furst pikh Mom took of Khousin Harley's arrival - this was with her cell phone so she khould send it straightaway to Auntie Di
From part of our furst walk together
Resting after lots of fun
And ready fur more!
Goldens and their no strings attached ways
Show Off!
He's one happy Golden boy!
We gave him the kong we had gotten in our prize pakhkage from Jan's Funny Farm's khontest - he loved it
Hitting the road so Unkhle Paul khould take him to see Aunt Shannon - then it would be home to meet his new sisfur and my khousin Merdie - and then Merdie's beans Brandon and Jaden - and the neighbourhood beans - he was a hit with all!!!
Thinking of what fun his new life would be - and how thankful he was that his furst owner khared enough to let him go - I'll let Mom tell the rest of the story

Thanks Khyra - it was quite the exciting day - Paul emailed me at 11:11 - quite the appropriate time lucky and all - and the time the first miner in Chile reached the surface Tuesday night - saying 'get the blog camera ready - doing a dog rescue at noon - you'll be our first stop to meet him

Of course, this got us wondering - and quite curious - more exchanges ensued - with one being 'tell Khyra we'll take him for a walk - will call on way'

Hmmmmmm again - then another arrived 'he is awesome...any guesses?' - which of course we didn't!

Paul called from a few houses away so out I went - Khyra was already out enjoying a sunbath!

Well, the first picture of this post is the first one I took of him - and then Paul explained our close this rescue actually was - let's just say that if there were no trees on the golf course, we'd almost be able to see the house Harley had lived in - Google Maps shows it to be 0.8 miles - which in Khyra speed is no time at all - his owner had a proverbial Grand Slam of crap happen to him - and he wanted to see Harley get the life he deserved - so he gave Harley the gift of a better life - Harley was born on April 29, 2010- and that was his name - his first owner told Paul he was welcomed to change it but Paul said they'll keep it - I joked with that his next male dog will have to be Ducati -given that the females have been Lexus and Mercedes!

Puppy energy being what it is, he was very enthusiastic in meeting Khyra but he calmed quickly - and had lots of fun playing with her - of course, he didn't need no stinkin' string and made the best of that one!

Khyra did well with him as well - the walk was lots of fun - of course, the first few blocks were filled with him trying to inhale every smell there was - but he was a good walker -

Here is his Photobucket Album with videos; and here is the Photobucket Slideshow with pictures you've seen here AND lots more - we'll be sure to get some with Brandon, Jaden, and Merdie too - but they were sooooo happy with him!

He says thanks for the warm welcome - he's looking forward to spending time at Khamp Khyra and meeting all of you!

Now, I'll turn this back to Khyra - she has some special barkday wishes to share

Thanks Mom!

Well, we HAD a pikh of the barkday furiends but my paws managed to make it go away as I was finishing up my post - I mean, I was signing our names - and we so do NOT want to rekhreate all of this again - SOOOO, please stop by Dreamy Steve and Khool Kat's blog to wish them a HAPPY FOURTH BIRTHDAY!!!!

That's quite a story of how Harley came to be Merdie's little brofur! He sure is a cutie and we can't wait to see more of his adventures! We're glad your Unkhle Paul got him!

We're sure he's already figured it out by now ... but Harley has certainly landed in a Gold Mine of a new home. Congratulations to everyone! It's gonna be great getting to know him and seeing all the good times together.

Harley is such a show off. No strings, energetic and handsome. What's not to like. We are so glad he now has a happy Merdie home and gets to come to Khamp Khyra. Belly rubs for Paul cause he is an awesome rescue guy (ooo, does he like that?). OK, a sixpack then.....BOL

Tucker said...

Welcome, Harley!!!! You & I sound so much alike. I know we would be great pals... Khyra will show you the ropes and take good care of you! Tucker

WE loved reading all about young Harley! We know how happy he will be with his new family.

It's getting cooler here too but we don't have the heating on yet, and it's still sunny!


YD, sometimes with ♥June and ♥Angel Samantha said...

We are so glad that Harley's previous owner did the right thing. There are still good people out there who know they can't take care of their animals anymore and decided to do the right/best thing - let someone else love their animals.
That Harley is such a bundle of joy & energy!!!.
Sorry Khyra that you have to be "stringed".

Sam(Stringless)& June(Stringed)

The Furry Kids said...

Sychoberians said...

What is it with these dogs who dont need strings? Siberian house rules should be in effect for all newcomers ... Bah we are just jealous.

Have fun Harley but just remembers that even though you can be stringless Khyra is in charge.
