Meet Harley Quinn – Our Golden Pup!


Last summer we adopted a puppy. As the comic-loving family we are we decided to name our little girl Harley Quinn. We brought her home with a trunk full of toys, food, treats, collars, tags and everything else the pet store associate ‘suggested’ a new pup could need. We brought her home and knew – this golden pup was meant to be in our family!

Love At First Sniff

The story of how Harley came to be the newest member of our Team is a bit funny on it’s own. Like I said she was a shelter pup rescued from our local county shelter. The Hubby and I were riding around town one day and decided we wanted to ‘just look‘ at a few pups to see if we were ready to add one to our family.

We were lead back to the kennel area but before we could get there I spotted this small golden color pup staring at me from through a steel windowed door. I asked could we see ‘that one’ and was told she wasn’t available for another week. I guess I looked a bit disappointed because after a bit of hushed tones we were given access and I told my Hubby if we decided to do this I thought she was the right pup for us.

The shelter guy said that she had been rescued from wandering somewhere in the county and had to be cleared for adoption. The only thing we could do was add our name to a Waiting List up front. Okay!

Top of The List

At the front desk, the woman told us we were at the top of the list since we were actually the first family to show an interest in her. I’m guessing this may have had something to do with the secret access we were given but hey – I just said great and signed our name on the line.

The woman indicated we could come back in one week. Of the next seven days I went back and forth on whether we even needed a puppy.

It’s just one more butt for me to clean

What about the poo?

I don’t think I wanna walk a dog everyday.

Will it mess on my floor?

Yeah, you can tell I’m not big on messes. After my Hubby and oldest assured me they would take care of all the pup’s ‘business‘ we decided to go forward with the adoption. . .until that last day. I couldn’t do it. It was too much. Well thankfully my Hubby knew it was just last minute cold feet and went to pick up our little golden pup without me.

I’m Here For Her

Now here’s where the story gets a bit interesting. I’m retelling it as told by my Hubby. He said he arrived at the shelter and saw that there was a family in the ‘get acquainted‘ area loving all over a pup – our pup! He walked right past them to the front desk and told her as he pointed over to the family “I’m here for her”.

The woman looked a bit confused since this family had been there nearly 15 minutes and he clearly just walked in. He told her to check the Waiting List because his name was first. She did and after filling out the paperwork and signing the last form my Hubby walked over to that family and said, “Hi, I need to take her home now“.

Chiweenie My Tail!

Now just to reverse a bit int he story. When we signed our names at the top of that waiting list we did so after being told that the golden pup we fell in love with was a mixed breed called a Chiweenie – a combination of a Chihuahua and Dachshund .

 

 

Let’s just say someone got that wrong! 9 months later Harley has not only grown well beyond the length for either of those breeds but the height as well and she still seems to be growing! So despite thinking we were getting a pup who would stay a certain size – she’s already won our hearts and we know she’s here to stay!

 

 

That’s it. That’s the story of how Harley Quinn became a part of our family be sure to keep an eye our for a some of her adventures as she gets used to us and how we get used to her!!

    Oh my goodness! Talk about cuteness overload! She is adorable. we have 3 pups and they are everything to us so I’m sure you guys will just adore her! So sweet.

      She won me over instantly! Thanks so much!! Oh wow – 3 – you’re brave! I’m still learning how to deal with the one 🙂 Thanks so much for coming by!

  • Rebecca Brianne

    How cute! And I love that name. I miss having a dog so much but they are certainly a handful! My old labradoodle got pregnant twice (!!) from neighborhood dogs entering our backyard. We could handle two but 11 puppies was a WHOLE other thing!

    Best,
    Rebecca

      Thanks Rebecca!! Thanks goodness she has been fixed so no worries about that part because we have dogs all throughout our neighborhood. The state actually requires we have them fixed upon adoption. I can’t even imaging 11 . . .

    What a beautiful puppy and I love the name! Going to look at puppies at the rescue always results in one coming home. Kudos for doing such a great thing and giving a home to a doggie in need.

      Thanks Jocelyn!! My Kiddies love it and we always say her whole name Harley Quinn when she goes somewhere…LOL Thanks again and thanks so much for coming by!

  • Amanda Love

    Now isn’t she a cutie pie? It’s tough to let go once you’ve fallen in love with a fur baby! I’m glad you continued with the adoption. She’s definitely adding more love in your home.

  • Lex

    I love this story about getting Harley Quinn! She is sooo cute 🙂
    Looks like she might be mixed with doberman from your pics, but what do I know about dogs!? lol
    I am also really hesitant to get a pup even though we’d love to one day…so much work and a bit tougher to travel.
    Love the part about your hubby going without you and then having to grab her and run lol!
    See you on Instagram/FB!

      Thanks so much Lex!! She’s our little baby … Someone else said that! It’s like a guessing game now. Everyone we meet wants to figure out what she is 😉 Oh yes, the travel! I nearly forgot we had to think about that during our recent vacation. We ended up boarding her at a local place. It is so much to think about. Yes – the Hubby is a mess!! LOL . . . thanks so much for coming by!!
