Harley's Story......joining the family.

Here we are in the garden on my first day. I am the good looking one standing on the deck (ha ha Ellie - got ya back)
I was very nervous at first, but Ellie was being really nice to me. I did get upset when my other people left, and I kept waiting at the gate for them to come back but they never did.
The new pinkies were ok, they were being very good, and giving me lots of attention.
I wasn't too sure about coming inside the house at first. The new pinkies were very considerate and left every single door open, so I could get back outside if I wanted to.
I was a little bit scared in this strange new place.
They got me a brand new bed, but I decided I would rather sleep on Ellie's bed. She was ok with that becasue she was sleeping on the pinkies big bed.
Oh my god! I never knew Dales were allowed on the BIG BED??????
See here is proof that knucklehead Ellie gets up on the pinkies bed. I was never allowed on the furniture in my last home, so I still don't get up on the beig bed, even when the pinkies call me in the morning and invite me up with them......oh no! I might get in trouble! We are not allowed on any other furniture either - just Ellie on the big bed.
I spent the first 8 years of my life living with my breeders at Yorkpark. I was a show girl and did quite well too. My offical name is Yorkpark Harley Isastar. I was born on January 25th 1998.
I was also a breeding bitch, and had 3 litters of Dale babies.
This is my daughter Yorkpark Meg-a-Star from my last litter. She was waiting to go into the Show Ring at Royal Melbourne Show when my pinkie took this photo last year.

I have settled into my new home now and am very happy. My new pinkies give me loads of cuddles, I get far more attention now, as Ellie doesn't like to cuddle - so I get them all (yay).

We get to go walkies everyday, and even have special Dales Day Out on Sunday's, then we ride in the car and go somewhere nice. I love being in the car. I do a funny littel dance that mum calls my "Harley Happy Dance" as soon as I think we might be going out.....I get so excited, I just love being out with the pinkies.
So life is good now. My old people wanted me to have a nice retirement, that is why they brought me here. Ellie is my little sister, we have the same parents - Ch Yorkpark Pinto Iceastar is our mum and Yorkpark Compuchip Elvis is our dad. I still get to see my old people sometimes, we visited them last christmas and had a lovely time. And the pinkies often go to the Airedale terrier Club days out, so then i get to see lots of my relatives, that's nice too!
So, now you know all about me - Harley Bear.
or TWO!

Harley it is lovely to read all about your introduction to your family.

You must be very proud to have a lovely daughter going into shows.

Bet it is lovely leading a nice quiet life with your sister Ellie.

Hi Harley,
Great story, we love hearing about our doggy friends. Our pinkies thought you were lovely when they met you last year.
