Dear Harley

Dear Harley,

I sure have been missing you snuggled up against me at night, even when you had to get your nose right up to mine. It was always a pleasure to indulge your insistent ways. You always made sure you got everything just how you wanted it. Even at the end it had to be your way. I’m so glad about that. I really want to thank you for helping me open my eyes to see there are so many good people in this world. It’s so easy to become blinded sometimes. You truly are a magic dog. I know you realize what a huge hole your passing left in my heart – because you always knew how much I loved you. I have, however, found something that really helps a lot. I think of you running full blast in perfect health without a care in the world and a silly smile on your face. This makes me happy.

Love Always,

Harley and dad (2)


  1. Harley , I know that you are in God’s presence enjoying this Heavenly Day.Happy Easter Harley I love you so much.


  2. My eyes fill with tears..♥.
    Love and light to you and Rudi…♥
    I love HARLEY so very much..♥

    And I so know the feeling of the deep hole when a precious dog dies…♥
    My (rescued) sweet Rosie went to the bridge one month after my beloved husband died in 2014..♥

    My grief is forever…
    It represents the deep love..
    There is a comfort in it..
    and a strength in the tears ♥

    So I send empathy..
    and I read this blog with *bittersweet-ness* and appreciation every day ♥

    Thank you for sharing your heart with us ♥


  3. What a great letter. I’m so sorry you are dealing with the loss of your little boy, Harley. I hope it comforts you to know how very loved he was and will always be. We have two new family members – all because of Harley. By finding him and Mill Dog Rescue and learning about Harley’s mission, we went from TX to Colorado last weekend and found Trixie and Boskey. My hope was to meet Harley. Teresa was trying to help us do this but Harley passed while we were there. We were all so sad…and still are. I know in my heart he led us there for special reasons. Thank you for the very special life you gave Harley. Through that, you touched so many people all around the world.
