Harley joined others in heaven.  He died as a result of poisoning due to the intake of blue-green lake algae. We are heartbroken beyond belief.

We thank you all for your thoughts and prayers while we try and find peace in this tragedy.  Harley was our joy, abundantly loved and filled with a wonderful personality.  We will always remember him.

Harley joined our family in March 2007.  He was our third Aussie.  He was a perfect match for our family and our Aussie girls.  He was very sweet, funny and gorgeous!  He was always happy and in an upbeat mood.  

 He loved to play outside and splash around in the baby swimming pool.  He loved to go on walks and loved to fetch sticks in the lake.  He was great with kids and adults. 

 

 Lydia showed him in Open Conformation at local AKC dog shows and he had done well.

 

Harley is the father of our first litter born March 8, 2009. 

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
