Lindsey Jeremiah & Harley

Who is in the photo at right?

I’m Lindsey Jeremiah, a Freelance writer with Cottage Life Magazine and an Educational Program Coordinator with a Boating Safety Company. My dog Harley is a 6-year old cross between a redbound coon hound and a yellow lab. I rescued him from Toronto when he was a puppy without a home and we moved to B.C., Canada together shortly after to run along the ocean!

What's the occasion for Coffee with a Canine?

Harley is often featured in my articles about living the cottage life, getting outside with your dog, dogs and boating, etc. He is a great friend and source of creative inspiration for this writer!

What's brewing?

I usually stop by Starbucks for an Earl Grey Tea Latte. Grande. Soy.

Any treats for you or Harley on this occasion?

A rice crispy square for us both.

How were you and Harley united?

I saw a rescue ad online and drove down right away to bring him home.

How did Harley get his name? Any aliases?

He's just a Harley. Big, goofy, loveable, red. A real boy’s boy. A real Harley.

Cat, postman, squirrel...?

Squirrel!!! The hound instinct never fades!

Ball, squeaky-toy, stick...?

Stick!!!! Harley loves to wrestle sticks away from his doggy friends in the neighbourhood.

Does Harley have a favorite place to go for outings?

He loves to meander down to the lake where he can swim or roll all over a dead fish. It’s just the best thing in the world to old Harl’s.

Who is Harley's best pet-pal?

His brother Gus the pug! BFFs for life! They make an odd pair but they are perfect together!

What is Harley's best quality?

He’s a gentle giant. 80 pounds of love.

If Harley could change one thing about you, what would it be?

He would like me to get more exercise with him.

If Harley could answer only one question in English, what would you ask him?

I would ask him if his epilepsy medication makes him feel better.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life in which Harley could speak, who should voice him?

Eeyore, from Winnie the Pooh.

  1. Enjoyed your post and especially the cool relationship between the two dogs.
    My dog had idiopathic seizures for 10 years till I accidentally discovered he was gluten intolerance. I changed his diet to grain free food several years ago and he has remained seizure free. Here is the post where I wrote about it.
    Hope this helps.

  2. Beautiful dogs! They look like such a charming pair and what great role models for diversity and getting along :)
