Harley is a German Shepherd-Basenji. Basenjis are barkless dogs, so when we got Harley, he didn't know how to bark. However, he can climb ladders, perch on your shoulder, give high fives, and after a lot of hard work, he can now speak on command! He is a very sweet and loving dog, always happy and wagging. Harley was born in June of 1996 and was the first dog to join our family. My nieces and nephews refer to Harley as "the little brown dog," and he's all the kids' favorite dog. I guess a 70 lb. german shepherd mix is small compared to a great dane or mastiff. You can follow Harley on Twitter at @the_dogs.
Update: Harley passed away on May 5, 2010. The house feels very empty without his smiley little face and wagging tail. We miss you, Harley.
Swimming...well, mostly wading in the Salt River
Interesting Fact: Harley's tail was black when he was a puppy, but it changed to tan as he grew.
