Handsome Harley

Greetings.  My name is Harley Greyhound but you may call me Mr. Harley Greyhound like Karyn does. She also calls me Boyfriend because she says I am tall, dark and handsome – and I am.

I am a gentle giant weighing in at a solid 80 pounds. I have Valley Fever but my titer keeps improving because my mama takes good care of me.

I like taking long walks with Karyn and Daisy. I dislike loud, startling noises. I am very picky about what I eat and what kind of bowl the food is in. Ceramic, preferred.  I guess I am the hard to please type. Like most greyhounds, I have some quirks but I also have excellent manners.

My mama travels a lot so I like to stay here. Daisy and Girlfriend are my friends but my best friend is Karyn because she hugs me and massages me.

Karyn’s friend Cynthia calls me Rhett Butler. Yes, I am that hunky!

Love,

Handsome Harley
