Woofing a great big welcome!!!

I am back and I'm so excited -- this means I'll be learning lots of new stuff again and making new friends!!

When I think back on all I learned in the past two years from other bloggers, I'm amazed! They helped me learn to write a persuasive essay. When I wrote about making maple syrup and answered their questions, I learned to be very careful explaining. It made me feel so good, I even shared my homemade dog biscuits.

I can't wait to start reading again especially the blogs of the very special students at JH House who made these great comments here! I hope when I read your blogs and comment and ask you good questions, then you'll come here to read mine and comment to me. We can learn so much from each other when we collaborate and make connections!

to the wonderful world of blogging.

I'm ready to blog, are you?!

Love,
Rina

Nydaziah said...

But to me she is a lovley dog well i have to go now and i will talk to Harly later on

Christopher said...

I wonder why a dog would write a blog about him/her. Harley,did you really write your own blog? If you did,I thought it was a creative blog.

I found my selfe wondering if you Harlie were writing this wonderful blog.But it kind of is fun imagenating.

Landy said...

All this makes me think of is the way Harley expresses her thoughts. I still wonder if Harley is a girl or a boy but if the dog is a boy, my bad!

Ty said...

Harley I think you would be the most famous dog writer in the whole universe!!!!!

Elijah said...

Dear Harley,

Do you think dogs can realy learn to write blogs? I liked this blog because you can imagine a dog writing a blog. That is fun.

Kentashia said...

Thank you for welcoming me. I am ready to come into the blogging world. Tell Harley I said hi and if I were there I would give him a dog biscuit.

Harley said...

Hi Rina,

You wondered what I am like in real life? I'm a great guy; I love my Mom and Dad; I like going to the park; I like to walk but I can't go as far as I used to (I'm getting older and my hind legs don't work as well as they used to) and I love dog biscuits!!! Does Max have a fav dog treat?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Nydaziah,

The only time I get a little mad is when I can't go with Mom and Dad. I love riding in the car with them where ever they go--

I like the idea of a treat two times a day and I'm telling Mom you said to!!

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Destiny,

Here's the recipe for my favorite homemade dog biscuits!

1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
1 ½ cups rye flour
1 ½ cups brown rice flour
1 cup wheat germs
4 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 ¼ cups beef or chicken broth or stock

Bake at 350 until golden brown

Sift the dry ingredients together. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Roll out the dough. Use a dog biscuit cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits.

Enjoy,
Harley

Rina said...

You sound awesome!!!!! He loves meat flavored biscuits. He would love to meet you, too. But he might get in really bad condition because he has a tumor in his ear.... :( What's your favorite? I love your writing. Thanks for writing me back...

KENTASHIA said...

Anne said...

Anne said...

I think my dog will love the biscuit recipe. I copied it down. Max will make a super loud woof! Thank you for writing the recipe, Harley.

Rina

Anne said...

Hey Harley!

Please excuse all the anne's on this blogs. The kids are the ones writing to you. The students had to use Mrs. Davis's email account to respond to the New Zealand bloggers and today was a little confusing as to which one needed what information. We will get better!

Your blog is the best!

Mrs. Davis

Harley said...

Hi Graciela and Caleb,

Thanks so much for your comments!!

I'm sorry I'm a bit late in replying but typing takes me a while since I go one paw, one key at a time. Did you see me at my computer in this post?

I'm wondering now that you've had a chance to comment, how are you feeling about this kind of communication?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Hunter and Daniel,

My favorite treat -- bites of pumpernickel bagels! They are oooh soo good and my dad shares his with me a lot when I sit in my space.

Now my homemade dog biscuits taste really good, especially because Mom puts garlic and chicken broth in them! Yum!

Do you like chicken or pumpernickel bagels?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Thalia and Elijah,

I know dogs can blog!!! I'm the proof!!

What's hard for me to imagine is a cat as a blogger!! What do you think?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Landy,

I'm an older guy!!! Can you guess what I'm named after? They have two wheels and humans ride them. If you don't know the answer, click here. Long ago my dad used to have one.

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Ty and Kentashia,

Kentashia, I caught the "virtual" biscuit you sent; it was delicious!!! Thank you!!!!

Are you excited to be able to share your thoughts too?

Paws,

Harley said...

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Ivan,

Making maple syrup is cool isn't it!!

Shaah said...

Hunter said...

I really and truly wanted to say that I apreciate all that you send me because it can help me and others in our everyday ife. I also read a blog that tought me that when you write or type somthing make sure that you see the words because in one of the blogs I read this gurl wrote somthing that said words over and over again.W

Graciela said...

Hey Harley! How are you doing? I heard you like those baked coockies. Can you tell me about yourself? Tell me about your mom. Or what about your dad? Do you have any sisters or brothers? I wish I could meet you. Tell your mom I said hi to her. Good luck on writing.

Graciela

Thalia said...

Hi Harley,
Did you have a good weekend? Today in Mrs.Davis' class we were looking at other kids blogs. I went to Angel's. I thought it was neat. You should check it out. His two favorite wrestlers are also my two favorite!

Landy said...

Hi Harley,

Have you read Angel's post? Well, I didn't finish reading but I think it was interesting. (I think Angel was in last year's class.) O.k, I have to go.-( I really think it was interesting and awesome!!!!!!!)

Landy

Hector said...

Harley,
I wish I could know even more about blogging. I have been wondering how did you know about blogs? I have been looking at many blogs and I think that I am going to be a great blogger.

Kentashia said...

New Zealand is South East of Australi. No it is not near me. So how is the weather in Ohio and Michigan? Write back.

Daniel said...

Yes I love chickin! I love it because I eat meat every day. What is your favorite meat?

Ty said...

Harley you should write for a living because, you are so magnificent. You should make alot more blogs.Do you think I would be a good blogger?

Ashton said...

Hi Harly

We look at your blog every Tuesday.
The whole class is having a fun time bloging. I saw the comment you sent to Destiny.

Destiny said...

Thank you for the dog biscuit recipe. I really hope my dogs love it. Do you think they will turn out right?

Rina said...

Thanks for thinking of him! I think he would love peanut butter flavored because he likes the real thing. Where do you find them or the cheese flavored ones? Thanks for complementing me, too. I love writing to you. You're an awesome commenter yourself! Do you eat the dog biscuits when their hot or cooled? My other dog, Dooby-Doo, likes hot things. I don't know why. At the beginning of summer when the hottest days were here he STILL looked for the heat from the vents. Then, he gets so hot on the light breezy day! He's so weird but so cute like you, Harley! The cute part.......(:<3

Elijah said...

I think dogs are better pets than cats. Once my cousin's dog chased a cat up a tall tree.


Elijah

Harley said...

Hi Destiny and Hunter!

Hunter, you are quite welcome! You didn't know dog biscuits could be like people food did you?

Destiny, I'm sure the biscuits will be just right; it's hard to make a mistake with them unless you burn them. Just check them out every so often to see if they are hard yet. I happen to like my biscuits very crunchy! How about your dog?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Ivan,

I'm glad you get to use syrup! Enjoy it for me! Some of my medicine has honey in it and I love that!

Do you use syrup on anything but pancakes?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Nydaziah,

I am so glad we have this chance to communicate too!

Of course, I'll share my biscuits!! Have a virtual bite right now!!

Did you get it?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Graciela,

You can find out more about me here. I'm just over 10 years old now.

And you can read my Mom's blog here; she used to go to school everyday to teach and now she works from home on her computer!!

Now you know about me, do you have someone like me in your house?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Caleb, Christopher, Hector and Shaw,

Blogging is such great fun isn't it? It makes my tail wag when I blog! Does that give you a hint how I feel?

I listened to my Mom when she blogged and she kept telling me about talking to students far away. I begged and begged to have my own blog (I sat lots; I get stuff when I sit) and it worked!! And here I am in the blogosphere!

When you start blogging tomorrow, is there a part of your body that will show your happiness and excitement?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Thalia and Landy,

I haven't read Angel's blog but reading what other people write is so much fun isn't it? I learn lots when I read! I like writing and commenting too.

Is there one part of blogging you like more than another?

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Kentashia, Daniel, Ty and Ashton!!

Kentashia, the weather here is starting to look and feel like fall! What happened to summer? The days are so much shorter and I sleep more now it's dark longer!

Daniel, my mom and dad are vegetarian so the only meat we see in our house is my canned dog food and it's chicken! Do you think they should be providing me other choices?

Ty, you are going to be just as magnificent a blogger!!! I can't wait to read your blog!!!!

Ashton, I'm looking forward to reading your blog too!!! and I hope to comment to you like you did to me!!!

Paws,
Harley

Harley said...

Hi Rina and Elijah,

Mom finds my peanut butter biscuits at Pet Supplies Plus--I always watch when they go into the store!!

And I prefer my food cooler except when my Dad toasts pumpernickel bagels; they are soooo good when they're warm! Do you like them??

Thanks for the "cute part" compliment; that's the first time I've been called "cute"!!!

And Elijah, I prefer chasing turkeys and rabbits. I'm pretty good at chasing turkeys up in the trees even though my legs aren't as good as they used to be!! Do you have someone like me at home?

Paws,
Harley

Ivan said...

I only eat it on my panckakes. If I eat it with something else I might get sick.

Rina said...

I highly doubt that that's the first time anyone has called you cute. Are you sure? I really never tried peppernickel bagels. But I'll be sure to try them. I'm going to make those biscuits. My friend Destiny is going to give me the recipe. Destiny and I are really gret friends! I love being friends with her. We always talk to each other. So getting the recipe will take seconds. We're always together.

destiny said...

Hey I got to make the dog biscites I made over 5 trays

Shaah said...

Yes,and that part of my body is my whole body I'm going to be very to be very excited when we start blogging.Just to ask did you ever meet my teachers dog?

kentashia said...

I really wish I was there to snuggle up with you because it is getting cool in Georgia.

Hunter said...

No I did not know that. I'll get my little cousin to try that.

Christopher said...

Well, I'm not starting my blog today but I'm going to next Tuesday. I know you don't know where I live. I live in Conyers, Georgia. I was born in Gualajahara, Mexico. It is fun commenting to you. Go to my blog if you ever have a chance.

Daniel said...

I think they should give you more meat.Because my dogs eat meat.Do you eat bones? My dogs do.

Hector said...

Well Harley we didn't start our blog today but I still read some information. I like blogging because it is very fun blogging to you.I think we are going to have a very good time blogging.

Hunter said...

I did not know that. I'll get my little cusin to try that.

Graciela said...

Hello Harley,
Nice meeting you. How is your mom doing? Is she doing fine? What about your dad?

Ashton said...

Hi

caleb said...

Filemon said...

Landy said...

Hello Harley,

Thalia said...

Filemon said...

Harley, what a great I am poemI like it. It was cool when you said you pretend to be a human and when you said that dogs can comment students on their blogs.

Filemon said...

Graciela said...
