The Harlow Reunion

Friday, December 4, 2015

Have I even told you about the reunion I had with this guy when I got home from Cabo last week?

Oh, it was marvelous. One for the books, really.

Harlow was waiting on his bench in the window as usual, and then he caught a glance of Chris and I lugging our suitcases up the street before we even got inside. And as soon as he saw us his eyes lit up and his bark went crazy.

I call it his "oh my gosh I'm so excited I'm going to die" bark. When you spend every waking hour with your dog you can distinguish between their barks.

So anyway, he's barking like a maniac and as he hears us come through the front door the bark turns into a whimper and then when walked inside it was a full on scream. I wanted to record it, but I was too busy living it.

So then he proceeded to whine and scream and jump from Chris to me for the next hour. He made more noises than I've ever heard before. And when we finally sat down he plopped himself right on my lap and almost passed out immediately- with a big old happy Harlow grin on his face. It was the best.

I really need to figure out how to bring him on our honeymoon.

Anyway, I'm in the process of holiday shopping for Harlow, as well as buying gifts for Chris that have to do with Harlow (because when you're crazy this is what you do) and wanted to share a few of my favorite pet related gifts with you.

First and foremost:

1. This custom pet print. 
I love it so much. So does Harlow. It's hanging proudly in my living room just to ensure everyone knows how obsessed I am.
Snag your own right here. 

2. A membership to Chewy. 
Chewy sends top of the line treats, food, and toys to Harlow every month. And he goes absolutely nuts whenever a new Chewy box arrives the first week of the month. Shipping is fast and their prices are amazing.

3. The Cozy Cave. AKA the bed before the bed.
Have I "jokingly" fallen asleep in here before? No, that would be weird. But yes, yes I have. It's SO cozy and warm, get in it for yourself and then you can judge me.

4. Coffee and mugs from Grounds and Hounds. 
Because 20% goes back to the pups. What's better than that?

5. Natural pet treats from ZUKES!
Harlow is a total Zuke fan. If you want healthy all natural treats for your dog, you have to go to Zukes. Harlow suggests their pumpkin treats because he's so basic.

6. This shirt.
You didn't really think I was going to write a pet post without plugging my own shirt, did you? Of course not. Order this shirt for every person in your life who loves their pup. It's the perfect holiday gift, if I do say so myself. But do me a favor and order soon so I can make sure you get it in time.

What did I miss for pet presents? I'm still on the hunt for the perfect dog ornament. If you know of a good one, please share!

Also Goldendoodle lovers, check out this shirt. 

And that's that for now. Christmas Eve is 20 days away!!! Watch all the holiday movies you can this weekend. Then follow me on snapchat @thedailytay so you can check out more 4 second videos of Harlow sure to change your life.


  1. I totally just found a wine that supports no kill shelters and I obviously bought an insane amount of it. I think the cozy cave is on my dog's list for Christmas.

  2. I love going on trips and vacay with the hubs, but the saddest part of all is just thinking about leaving our 2 pups :( I hate the thought of them not sleeping with us or waking up with us... so I totally get the screams and barks when you guys reunited! Love it!

  3. Oh my gosh, that's just so sweet. Harlow is so cute!

  4. This is precious! My little guy, Roper, is the same way when I come home from being gone. It's over the moon excitement!

    I love your shirt, I'm going to have to order one!

  5. I don't know what I'm going to do the next time I go away. It was tough with one dog now that I drug home another dog? It's impossible. Especially since the new dog is my shadow and we sleep together every.single.night. Like she has a side and I have a side and there is no room for men in my life because my bed is occupied by a 15 lb dog.

  6. So so sweet! Gotta love some puppy love. And can we talk about how gorgeous your Christmas tree is?! I love the tinsel!!

  7. Dog gift guides are the best! I'm slightly biased, but I think Moon & Lola makes a snazzy ornament. I'm also obsessed with my friend's business Cards for Canines. She does custom pet drawings and gives proceeds to a local shelter!
