Adventures With Harvey ~

I can't believe a whole year has gone by since I was here in Depoe Bay. It's still just as beautiful. The deck may be a little more weathered but it's awesome to sit on. The climate has been mild and it's great for walking all my grand pups.
Harvey is the newest addition. He is the totally all black pug. Harvey got out and we had quite the adventure trying to find him. I climbed fences and chopped my way through many thickets of black berry brushes. (Not fun) This took about three hours of time. Jake also was searching and he certainly didn't want a repeat of the last time Harvey disappeared. It was during a storm with pouring rain and wind. Both he and Julie search but they couldn't find him anywhere and with the wind blowing as it was, they wouldn't have heard him if he'd been crying. So Harvey spent the night out by himself. So we prayed and believed God for the return. Next day, Jake went out and searched again. Finally Jake said he (Jake) started to yell out his name, there he appeared like out of nowhere. He was dirty and still had his bells on from Halloween. Anyway, he was sitting at a neighbors house, (Jake calls the preacher man). He ended up there the second time after searching. I kept prayed to the Lord to keep him safe and that we'd find him soon. There he was sitting and waiting at the preacher man's house. Julie said maybe he's trying to tell us something.
Harvey was lost and then found. He had a safe haven till he was reunited with loved ones. We all were so happy to see him again.
God is awesome. Below are some pictures around the house.

It's so good to see Harvey after I had heard the story from you a few weeks ago. They are adorable dogs!!!! God even watches over the pups.
