Though much too short, Harvard, or just "Harv", had a wonderful life as a CP Kid!
Harvard was born January 2, 2005 and spent his first 17 months in a puppymill. He came to Valerie as a foster. Harvard could not handle crating at all, I remember Valerie loosing a lot of sleep the first few nights due to Harv's letting her know how unhappy he was in his crate!
Some of us had the pleasure of meeting Harvard just recently at WI POOP. He was a very sweet, happy boy, one that you couldn't help but be drawn to; a handsome black brindle, more black than brindle.
He had many, many interests on him while in foster care. The first four matches all would have required him to be flown in a crate. Knowing he could not handle this, they were not approved. When the fifth match came, Valerie told John, Harvard's Dad, and John replied "I'll have to kill them". Valerie asked who he was talking about, and he replied "Anyone who tries to take Harvard". So the decision was made that Valerie and John could not let Harvard leave, and he was made a permanent forever furkid. Harvard could not have had a more perfect match!! He found his bit of heaven in the WI Dells.
Harvard made his way to the rainbow bridge after bravely fighting a short battle with pancreatitis.
Harvard is gone far too soon, far too quickly, and leaves a huge hole in Valerie's heart. Valerie adores her boy. Please hold Valerie and Harvard in your hearts while they take this journey. Please light a candle for Harv so he can find his way to the Rainbow Bridge, and in honor of his short life. Please always remember him, and the joy he brought to Valerie and John, and all who met him. He will be deeply missed.
