Meet Harley!

Originally uploaded by Cara's Scrap 'N Stamp Art
As if I wasn't busy enough already, add a 2 year old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever to the mix and forget it, there's just no time left.

We found Harley five weeks ago at a local shelter. Despite being filthy, he stole our hearts. We're all adjusting but it's exhausting training him. Thankfully, he's a smart dog and catching on quickly.
The shelter told us he was five years old but it turns out he's probably around two. That would explain the high energy and bright white teeth. Quite a change from our lazy 11 year old golden retriever who died suddenly in March.

My boys are done school tomorrow. Andrew has a graduation ceremony but he still has another year of preschool. Alex is almost a 4th grader. They worked so hard this year and we're so proud of them. I'm hoping for a relaxing summer but I know the kids and Harley will keep me busy. Maybe I can sneek in reading a book at the pool but that might be pushing it.

He is so cute. He looks smart or is that possitive thinking. Enjoy your time with him. Timber my english setter, is still having the time of her life chasing critters. He is so lucky to have you.
