Harley on Vacation

Okay folks. Here are some Harley highlights from my Utah mountain vacation.

Lounging on the deck. This is his 3rd year to my parent's cabin.
The first year he literally belly crawled across the deck to get inside the cabin.
He has now progressed to walking normally on it, but he still will not walk over the snow grate you see in this picture.

Watching the kids target shooting with their bows

Creek that runs right below the cabin

Wading in the creek

Trying to coax Harley down the stairs. He has yet to do it. Which made me have to go outside and around downstairs with a flashnight each night to get to bed.
We found he loves Ginger Snaps, so we placed pieces on the stair steps, but would only creep to the first step and come back up.

He wants the Ginger Snap so bad.

He FINALLY conquered his fear over the steps on our last day.

Going fishing on the lake was another new event. He did not quite like the swaying dock.

My family fishing trip was something else. We called ourselves the dork family, because everything that could go wrong did. My nephew's job was to remember the worms and marshmallows for bait and guess what we showed up without? Yep the worms and marshmallows. The owner of the boat place gave us complimentary worms thank goodness. Then my niece hooked a fish but proceeded to get it caught up on the anchor, which involved literally 5 of us to help untangle. She We got the fish though!

That's all until Harley's next year!

  4. Oh my gosh, I am in love with Harley. Which I think I've told you before. I love how scared he is of everything! He's a gentle giant. What a sweet, sweet, sweet puppy!!!! I just wrote about my dog, too, but it's a bit different of story. :)
    Looks like you had a great time!!!!

  5. Harley looks just like my dog, Aspen. Only I wish my Aspen were as calm as Harley - LOL! Where were you in Utah? That's where I live.

    1. Susie,
      My parents cabin is in Mammoth Creek. The closest main city for shopping and such would be Cedar City.
