Keep Your Face To The Sunshine


The above image is of a beautifully handcrafted card which was sent to us from Jan & Julie. On the back it reads: Made with love in memory of Harley. The card always sits on my desk and I read it every single day.

“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It’s what the sunflowers do.” … and it’s what Harley did.

  4. I found Harley one day just browsing through my phone read his story and it was love at first sight I’ve adopted 2 more dogs 3cats now I have 4 dogs total 3 cats oh and 2 lizards lol but Harley was such an inspiration when I hadn’t seen his photo for a while I wondered why then the next few day I found out I cried so much told my boy friend my kids dad they told me he is ok now and assured me that all dogs go to heaven I cried even more I’ve never had the chance to meet him but he made an impact in my life so I just wanted you to know I am against puppy mills I do not support them and I will always adopt I love u Harley you will never be forgotten and you will for ever be loved and missed I will wear my hoodie with even more pride we love you The Castillo Family
