Sunday we added a new family with two special dogs. Harley just had 16 puppies last week - 4 did not survive. Harley was a referral from the good people at Agawam Animal Control. James, Harley's companion, loves her very much. Harley originally came from an ad on Craigslist. Her original owner's kept her tied to a pole in the basement for the first 7 months of her life. James has done a great job giving Harley a good life to the best of his ability. We will help him with the puppies and today brought food and treats for Harley to help her while she is nursing. She also is very itchy and has some hair loss so we will be bringing her to the vet this week to check out her skin issues. We are excited to let you know that one of the first things James asked us about was getting Harley spayed and of course we are happy to oblige!

The puppies' daddy is Thor - a Shar Pei/Mastiff mix. He is a super sweet dog. Unfortunately, he has an ongoing issue with his eyes which we suspect is entropian - an abnormal condition of the eyelids. We are going to see what we can do to help Thor, as well. Stay tuned for updates!
