She likes chest rubs, playing ball and stealing socks
The back up beeper on delivery vehicles are the most annoying to her.
She likes her tennis ball and anything that she can squeak.
Blue~small breed is my main diet...For treats I like Natural Balance Roll-A-Rounds/Crunchy Lamb with Rice, Mini Greenies and Grandma Lucy's Tidbits.♥
She loves to walk everywhere we go because she has a very curious nose for investigating anything new.
I like to Fetch~Sit~Down~Stay~Leave it~Shake~High fives~Please~Place~Kisses~Pray~Hugs~Back flips, Dance, and stealing socks.
I had two best buddies before my gurl Harley Diva.
My Prince Frosty was nearly 16 yrs.
old when he developed Cushings Disease that eventually took his life.
His buddy Kody was nine and missed him so much,
the stress shut down his pancreas, and he died a month later of a broken heart.
I got Harley Diva-Girl to be the new buddy for Kody,
but he died two weeks after we brought her home.
She is is very athletic and a high jumper.
I can also say, she is a very high maintance paw
because she craves the need for lots of physical exercise.
Her favorite sport is playing fetch the ball,and She can out-run the ball.
Deep chest massages are her favorite. She can be quite the tease with her toys,
but she is also loving,gentle,dependable,very smart and confident.
She is non-barker.Her main goal is to please.
Due to her merle genes, her eyes are sunlight and camera flash sensitive.
Harley Diva has the personality of being highly tuned in to the needs of others,
and this is the reason she is a trained Therapy Dog.
She graduated second in her Obedience class with 195 points out of 200.
She passed her CGC and is a certified Therapy Dog with TDI.
Thank you Dogster for having this site to help me to learn how to
love and care for my pets even more!
I am a Blue Merle Pomeranian.

ATTENTION TDI MEMBERS:
A Word on MRSA
We are re-sending this information to you, since we just learned that two of our TDI dogs had contracted MRSA two years ago. After speaking with hospital representatives they assured me that it could not have been contracted in their hospital. Anyway, there is no way we can trace it, especially since so much time has elapsed. By the way, both dogs are fine after some extensive treatment with antibiotics.
A number of TDI Members and facilities have become concerned about the possible transmission of MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) from therapy dogs or to therapy dogs visiting Health Care Facilities, schools, or other institutions.
We have consulted various sources in the Veterinary community, and the one thing that they can all agree on is that MRSA in dogs is not well understood at this point. What we do know is MRSA is a drug resistant infection that does not respond to normal treatment. It may be possible for MRSA to be passed from a dog to a human, and vice versa, but luckily, Staphylococcus bacteria are usually not hazardous to most humans or dogs, because healthy individuals of both species can usually fight the bacteria without medication or other help. If MRSA does affect you or your pet, the fact that the infection is unresponsive to drugs makes it difficult to treat.
Some symptoms of MRSA include soft tissue infections and respiratory problems in humans, and a skin infection in dogs. If you or your dog display these symptoms, it would be wise to consult a doctor or your veterinarian promptly. The best way to combat MRSA is proper hygiene for both you and your dog. You should wash your hands before and after leaving a facility, and keep your dog clean and well-groomed. In addition, when in a health care facility, use a towel or blanket provided by the facility to cover the bed or lap of the patient if your dog goes up on the patient’s bed or lap. Also, a quick review of TDI’s sanitary practices outlined in the Associate Member’s Rules and Regulations (Page 6) and “Grooming Your Therapy Dog for Visitations” (Page 15) is a good idea. Another resource you can utilize is your State Department of Health, and you may also consult the NASPHV (National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians) “Animals in Public Setting” Compendium. It is
available online at http://www.nasphv.org/documentsCompendiaAnimals.html.
If you keep yourself and your TDI dog as clean and hygienic as possible, you will minimize the chance of you or your dog acquiring or transmitting MRSA bacteria to or from those you visit.
Good to be careful!!
We nevfur knew for sure this could happen.
We always get our paws wiped clean befur we enter
any hospital or facility, and after we leave.

Jazzi and I had our Dental sugeries earlier than planned on May 21st,
but could not use
our Diary entree till today.
I had the molar extracted that had the
root canal procedure done 2 years ago.
The tooth cracked in half during the procedure....YEP!!!...
you guesed it!!!...
My Oral surgery cost more than Jazzi's....
....I am such a Diva!!!
In this tooth I developed an absence so bad
it traveled out another canal and came
through my face right under my left eye.
It was constanly seeping because of the infection.
Momma was thinking I got a snake bite.
Neverfur heard of this befur.
She is extremely mad at my other Docfur for his PROCRASTINATION!!
So we have a new Docfur now.
Momma tells us although the other Docfur was furry nice....we need a Docfur of action.
The NEW Docfur found lots of infection in that canal during the
Momma had them do a complete blood workup to be totally safe,
and also to make sure the infection did not cause any organ damage.
.....Not to worry I will be fine now.
I am taking additional antibiotics.
The Docfur told Momma before the seeping,
I was in alot of pain, but I never
did tell my pawrents.
I never complain about anything.
We generally eat Blue small breed bites dry...so..
Momma was cooking soft foods for us for a few days.
We are both doing well,
and I am back to my COMPLETE DIVA SELF!!!
The Docfur and all the staff told momma what good gurls we are...
They told momma we are best behaved pups they have ever seen.

Two years ago I had a root canal done on one of my molars.
Recently I discovered a tiny hole on my face the size of a toothpick.
Momma tought I got bit by a snake or a bee, but it
turns out a tooth root is growing out through my face causing that tiny hole.
The Doggie Dentist tells us this is quite common,
but we neverfur heard of it befur.
I go in June to get this taken care of,
and none of us is looking forward to this procedure
.....or the cost.
The cost for my root canal was $1200.00...after discount.
Jazzi is experiencing the same problem with the exact same tooth as I did.
It must be a genetic thing since we share the same fur-momma.
She will get her procedure done when I do.
Since we are young pups, the consideration is to safe the tooth.
Our Molars are one of the main teeth we use daily.
The doggie dentist is furry nice gurl.
Her daddy is a human Dentist.
She started her carrer the same way, but decided to switch
to doogies instead of humans.
She thinks we have cleaner mouths than humans!...WOOF!!
We will be having our tooth procedures done at the....
Pittsburgh Veterinary Emergency Clinic by Dr. Krista Mendoza.
Pawrayers from all our furry furiends is greatly appreciated
Momma is afraid for us with the use of the anesthetic.
