our dog, harley

November 13, 2011.. That’s the day our lives changed.  We went to look at dogs, and came home with our girl, Harley.  She was about 10 weeks old (her birthday is September 4) and was a rescue from Georgia – a real Southern Belle.  She was already such a smart dog, basically potty trained herself (only 1 accident the day we brought her home, not bad!).  She is a very cautious and smart dog.  Harley is a fun, very loving addition to our family.  She knows when you are down and need some love (or hugs and kisses xo).  She loves to play outside with her toys, inside with her BFF – Miss Lamb Chop, and go for walks.  After having her for a little over a year, we were eager to find out what she was.  We decided to get the test WisdomPanel and found out she is Boxer, Rat Terrier, with a whole lot of Plotthound in her.  If you have a rescue or are unsure of what breed your dog is, I would highly recommend this test.  Not only does it tell you the breed, it sheds some light into behavior and helps out with training.

One of our latest finds (and we are HUGE fans of) is chewy.com.  Not only is the customer service PHENOMENAL, it has just about everything you would need for your pet.  Here’s the kicker.. You can place your order and have it shipped right to your door (ours comes in about a day or 2), OR you can start an Autoship order.  If you add something to an Autoship order, you get it at a discounted rate and you can decide how many weeks you want to regularly receive.  If you run out of dog food before your next Autoship, no worries.. You can just log in and change your Autoship date to Ship Now!  Honestly, its been a while since I found a company with such great customer service and an exceptional experience each time, that I feel like I am at a disservice to you if I do not tell you about it.  Try it out, I promise you will not be disappointed!

Some accessories we have for Harley and I would highly recommend are listed below, check them out!

Comfy Couch Pet Bed
This bed is a little costly, but so worth it.  Especially if you are trying to train your dog into not going on the furniture.  When we got a new sofa for the living room, we didn’t want Harley to get on, so after buying this bed, she would actually prefer to just be in her bed all day long (and at night too!)

Car Seat Liner
We bought a cheap one and we definitely got what we paid for, it just started to fall apart and shed pieces of fabric all over our car seat.  This one we love and it looks pretty comfy too!

Travel Pop Up Food Bowls
These are great when travelling.  We have 2, one for food and one for water.  They barely take up any room and they are dishwasher safe!

On the Go Water Bottle
We got this for Harley especially for when we go on long walks, she can have a drink.  This water bottle is fantastic!  It fits in a normal water bottle pocket on a backpack and it even has a clip so you can clip it onto your pants, etc. if you don’t feel like carrying it.  Harley loves this and is always bumping her nose to it when she is ready for a drink.  Definitely a must have!

Food
Harley has skin allergies so we have tested A LOT of different food.  We are on this food right now and she seems to love it and we think it is helping out with her skin.  It is a little pricey but on chewy.com we get it for a discounted rate (the same we were paying for Blue Buffalo previously).

Treats
Just tried these biscuit treats out recently (Salmon, Bayou and Denali) and Harley loves all of those flavors!  Definitely her new favorites!
