Harlea 5/4/13 - 8/25/22
Yesterday afternoon my beloved snot rocket Halrea passed away unexpectedly. It had been a normal day for the most part except she threw up a bit of her breakfast as she has done many times in the past. We did our usual playing before work, going potty and then she settled in for her morning nap across from my desk as she always does. Lunch time came and all appeared well as she followed me to the couch to cuddle up for a power nap. Even after lunch she went potty ate a cookie and then settled in next to the couch as my wife had just got home and was playing with our grandson. She went potty two more times and after the second time she plopped down in one of her usual spots on one of her favorite blankets and passed peacefully. No struggles, no gasping or choking, no warning signs at all. We have been stressing our brains trying to think of what happened as she had just been to the vet for her check up and was given a clean bill of health except for two small lipomas that she had so we have no idea why she passed so sudden.

We are beyond devastated and I am especially lost as she was a partner in crime and outside of traveling from time to time Harlea was by my side all day every day that we have had her. We even had a specific routine and if it got interrupted she would make sure I knew about it. I couldn't sleep last night as I didn't hear her snoring and this morning has been tough as I am lost without that routine. I know in time it will get easier but right now it is just too much. However, I just keep telling myself that Harlea is still with us in our hearts and that she left us on her own terms.

Rest easy sweet girl. Mommy and daddy love you very much and will miss you dearly. Run free with all of your brothers, sisters and bully friends that crossed the bridge before you. Please keep Wallygator and Harveyspector company and check in on us from time to time.

This is awful news. 3 of our longtime buddies recently passed away. I am so very sorry. The only comfort I can offer is that she passed away in the most peaceful way possible. Heartbreaking.

I am very sorry about Harlea passing to the rainbow bridge. I know how much you love her, and Bulldogs grab your heart like no other. I know she was a Daddy's girl . God help heal your heart.

Absolutely gutted... I literally came on here to talk about Wallygator, and here I read about Harveyspector and now precious Harley :cry: Although we are truly heartbroken, all three of us were blessed!!! They went on their own, on their terms... not putting us thru all the pain of making those dreaded decisions.

I'm SO very sorry... you & I both came on here at EBN the same timeframe. And then you were there for me when I lost Winston SO suddenly, and of course all the adventures w/Wallygator & Willow. I've been blessed w/your friendship... and of course all the adventures w/our bullies over the years.

Sending lots of love & prayers to you and your family... I know our precious babies are cutting it up on the bridge. They will be waiting for us when it's our time!!! :angelheart:

Yesterday afternoon my beloved snot rocket Halrea passed away unexpectedly. It had been a normal day for the most part except she threw up a bit of her breakfast as she has done many times in the past. We did our usual playing before work, going potty and then she settled in for her morning nap across from my desk as she always does. Lunch time came and all appeared well as she followed me to the couch to cuddle up for a power nap. Even after lunch she went potty ate a cookie and then settled in next to the couch as my wife had just got home and was playing with our grandson. She went potty two more times and after the second time she plopped down in one of her usual spots on one of her favorite blankets and passed peacefully. No struggles, no gasping or choking, no warning signs at all. We have been stressing our brains trying to think of what happened as she had just been to the vet for her check up and was given a clean bill of health except for two small lipomas that she had so we have no idea why she passed so sudden.

We are beyond devastated and I am especially lost as she was a partner in crime and outside of traveling from time to time Harlea was by my side all day every day that we have had her. We even had a specific routine and if it got interrupted she would make sure I knew about it. I couldn't sleep last night as I didn't hear her snoring and this morning has been tough as I am lost without that routine. I know in time it will get easier but right now it is just too much. However, I just keep telling myself that Harlea is still with us in our hearts and that she left us on her own terms.

Oh dear no, this is unbelievable, I am beyond sorry!!! Just now reading about all three losses here, each one as devastating as the next. So, so many times I would read posts about Harlea and notice so many similarities with Joey. I am heartsick for you and your family. Keeping you in our hearts and prayers friend.

Sue and Joey
