Harley is a sweet girl and she is slowly continuing to settle into her foster home. She is a little skittish but hopefully she will begin trusting her foster family. Harley loves to sit on the couch and sleep with her foster parents at night. Like most labs, Harley is a cuddle bunny! We’ve noticed that Harley seems to prefer the temperature to be on the cooler side, rather than the warm. The past few nights she was panting in bed, but once the heat was off and the fan was on, she began sleeping like a baby!Black Labrador RetrieverOne characteristic of Harley which is unlike most labs is that she takes her food very gentle. Most labs swallow their food without barely tasting it, but Harley likes to chew her food. Tonight we had roast beef and it was cooked nice and tender but she chewed it several times before swallowing!

Harley continues to be accident free, doing her business outside!

More to come, tomorrow.

Today was Harley’s first full day at the Irwin house. She is quite shy! Harley has gone up and down the outside deck steps (12) like a pro! She loves to relax on the couch and the extra comfy dog bed.Black Labrador RetrieverHarley was getting along with the resident dogs and then when she came in to house she stepped up to the water dish while the resident dog Babe was getting a drink and he growled at her.Black Labrador RetrieverHarley has been apprehensive with Babe ever since, but we are hoping that they will soon be good friends. Although she is a chubby puppy, she doesn’t seem to have much of an appetite. We think this is due to Harley being in a new environment.
