Little Harley Revisited

A Few days after I did my post on little Harley, you can imagine my surprise when I picked up the local newspaper to see THIS!! The paper had stolen copied my blog post!! O.K., seriously, they did take their own pictures and a reporter wrote the story, so it's not exactly a legal matter yet, but I was the first one to break the story, ha ha!! So now here is the rest of the story. I know many of you were worried that Harley could fly off his owner's shoulder if he came to a quick stop. Not to worry. See in the picture, he is secured by a strong clip from his owner's collar to his harness, and has been completely checked out by an animal control officer, who then wanted his picture taken with Harley! Larry Groah is Harley's owner, and he rescued the seven pound Yorkie three years ago at birth. They have logged 3,000 miles since April. And with little Harleys's safety hook and the strong shoulder of his master, the roads are always smooth and never bumpy.


"A voice of one calling in the desert,
Prepare the way for the Lord,
Make straight paths for him.
Every valley shall be filled in,
every mountain and hill made low.
The crooked roads shall become straight,
the rough ways smooth.
And all mankind will see God's salvation."  Luke 3:4,6

Yup, I saw it here first! Thanks for the reassurance! Much appreciated! Such a cute little dog!

SquirrelQueen said...

Well, you scooped them. We are all witnesses that the story was here first.

Harley is so cute, I just love those goggles. I thought that was some type of harness when I saw your photos the other day. I had a feeling this guy would not risk letting Harley get hurt.

Ann said...

may be you ask them to give you a jib as a free lance reporter.

Darlene said...

I'll bet that made you do a double take! You had a front page story! Congrats on being the first to share it!!

I think your original story was way better, too ;-)

Harley has made himself famous!! cool dog..

Stephanie V said...

So, has the paper offered you a job yet? You obviously know how to scoop a story LOL

Regina said...

I agree with Lisa! Oh what a sweet companion..I figured he must of been secured.

Terra said...

Your photo shows such a charming scene, and cool that you got the story first.

Ann said...

Even if they did do the same story at least yours hit first :)
I was wondering about how he stayed up there so well. I was sure that the guy wouldn't ride around with the dog up there without him being protected. Looks like they make a great team

Shug said...

Harley is just precious...Glad to know that his owner has provided enough safety for him when they travel...
You might need to give that news paper office a little visit...Let them know who is tops when it comes to getting the news out!! lol

sarah said...

what a pair!

Rose said...

Maybe you should have been a journalist!

I like that verse in Luke, It reminds me of a verse in Isiah that I love as well. Such a cute little dog and who would have thought that the tough looking biker would have such a soft heart. Just goes to show that you don't judge a book by it's cover.

Lynn said...

Hmm I think you should have a byline in the paper and a picture of you and your blog showing it first! Only fair, right? Right now, I so envy Little Harley, I am chomping at the bit for a road trip which won't happen anytime soon. The Lord willing we will do it in the Fall again. I used to ride dirt bikes on an island in Lake George in the Adirondack region of NY state....a long time ago. Never was or wanted to do the motorcycle. Thank you for the update on Little Harvey. We are all witnesses that we saw it on your blog first. Blessings.
