07/16/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Everyone has that one friend who’s kind of a dingus. You know, the one who inadvertently photobombs the group picture, or isn’t looking at the camera, or gets overly excited in public about the most mundane things. If you don’t know what kind of person I am talking about, then you need one in your life! And, Harley could be that one! She’s such a silly girl: tall and lanky, she doesn’t have the body awareness that some dogs have and when she gets excited, she kind of flops all around. She does zoomies around the yard for absolutely no reason, with absolutely no shame. As it should be! She will entertain both you and herself for hours, running after the ball, sometimes retrieving it, more often than not, just setting her into motion for another epic zoomie. She’s the friend you know will always greet you with a big smile, funny anecdote or even a hug and a kiss. She’s sociable toward all, including dogs, seems housetrained and has all the makings for a lifelong companion. Ask to meet her today-I promise you won’t be disappointed!
