Harley’s Special Touring Edition

07/15/2007 - 01/29/2018

Memorial created 07/13/2020 by Wendy.

Our Handsome Harley

Harley was oversized but had the most gentle, caring and protective demeanour ever.

When only 6 months old, he put himself in front of me and his sister Mercedes to protect us from a very large black bear. Luckily the bear turned and left. Whenever around other dogs, he would always push aggressors away from victims. And heaven help any dog that was aggressive to his beloved sister Mercedes. We witnessed him stare down a large black lab who just wouldn’t leave Mercedes alone. Eyeball to eyeball, not a sound, but obviously telling the lab to “back off”, which he did.

When his sister became ill, he would sit with her outside doing a lion king kind of protective pose, just in case. He was devastated when we had to let her go, and almost immediately became ill himself. Although he may have suffered, you would never have known it. We were going to take him into the vet on Monday morning to see what was wrong. I stayed up with him Sunday night and as we both fell asleep on our front room sofa, he passed in his sleep, with his head in my lap. That was our beloved Harley, always doing things his way.

We will see you, my dear friend at the Rainbow bridge.

Candles left in memory of Harley’s Special Touring Edition

  1. John Harmon says:

    I know what it feels like to lose a beloved friend and companion. I lost my most cherished friend and companion; Champ in July of 2021. He was my true four legged son. Just remember:
    No longer by my side; but, forever in my heart.

    Someday your heart will open for another “Wonderful Sheltie”. Though you will never forget Harley, the new Sheltie will help ease the pain.
    Thanking of you!

  2. Darren says:

    What a beautiful tribute Wendy. Harley sounds like such a special, caring and protective dog! I’m so sorry for your loss and I hope you can find comfort in the special memories you shared. I hope he’s playing with my Harley at the rainbow bridge, I could think of no better friend!

    I’m so sorry for your loss, Harley is still with you in spirit and will meet you at The Rainbow Bridge where he is whole again.
    I have a saying and it goes like this: “You have touched the face of God when he Blesses you with a pet”
    May you have peace, comfort and happy memories of your baby.
