20 QUESTIONS WITH: Harley & Julie from Reading Without Restraint

1.     What breed(s) are you? 
I am half dachshund and half shih tzu
2.     Favorite place to sleep? 
At night I love to climb under the covers and sleep by my people's feet
3.     Favorite food?  
Yes, food is a favorite of mine
4.     How did you find your home?  
My people mom was walking by the pet store in the mall and all I had to do was look up at her with my sad puppy dog eyes.
5.     Favorite thing to chew?  
Stuffed animals--tearing the stuffing out of them is my specialty
6.     Indoors or Outdoors?  
Anywhere my people are
7.     Are you embarrassed by dog outfits? 
I hate the giraffe costume my people mom got me for Halloween.  I'm a dog, not a giraffe!  C'mon!
8.   Dog Trainers: Friend or Foe?  
Everyone is a foe (and worthy of a good bark) except for my people family
8.     Hair cuts or the natural look? 
Keep those scissors away from me!  I hate it when my people mom takes me to the groomers.
9.     Do you like baths? 
What is the point?  I am just going to roll around on the ground as soon as I get home anyway?
10.Favorite place to watch your territory from? 
The back of the couch--I can keep an eye on my entire street from there
11.What cute thing do you do for a treat?  
Treats aren't part of an every day diet?  I just have to look cute (which comes naturally to me).  If I MUST entertain someone, I will sit on my hind legs or roll over.
12.What most do you like to bark at? 
Everything that moves is worthy of a good bark
13.Cats:  Take them or leave them?  
Tolerate them.  I don't know what my people were thinking of when they got a cat
14.Would you chase a squirrel right now if you could? 
I swear I am going to catch one some day
15.If you catch something, what do you do with it?  
Bark it into submission!
16.World domination or too much work? 
I will leave that to my people.  I am happy with "My House" domination.
17.Do you prefer to walk or go for a car ride? 
Both (preferably in the same day, all day)
18.If you could do one thing right now, what would it be? 
Sleep, bark, eat, go for a ride--what else is there??
20.    What book would like to chew the cover off?  
Anything with a cat on the cover--isn't it enough that I have to live with live cats??
Anything else to bark about? 
I have a big brother named Malo.  He is a 135 pound German Shepherd.  He thinks he is cool, but I am really the one in charge!

  3. Julie has a great blog. I've been following for awhile. I love this post. What a great idea.

  4. What a delightful post and a gorgeous little dog!

  5. I just became a new follower of Julie's. I really liked her blog, thanks for the intro to it! And I love the 20 questions with Harley--he really is quite well spoken isn't he? My dog has kind of given up on squirrels, but seems to think she may be able to catch a bird.

  6. Thanks for the nice compliments everyone! And yes, Harley is a cute dog isn't she? But then again, I'm prejudiced!

  7. What a cute little dog. The answers are priceless but my cat disagrees with one or two of them.

    Thanks for following my blog, I look forward to reading more of yours.

  8. Harley does great interviews! She's a natural! Such a lovely natural beauty too!

    Julie's doggie is too cute, I can totally understand why she would want to pet her all the time, she is adorable!! :-D

    Great questions, loved the answers! lol :-)

  12. Hi a follower of Julie's and also of BookHounds. Harley is a cutie. With her picture portfolio and interview, what is next? lol


  13. No need to enter me. I think Harley is so darn cute. The only thing is that I hope the pet store was a rescue pet store adoption. Most regular pet stores get their puppies from puppy mills.

    Find out about puppy mills here.

  14. I have to say...that is 2 cute!!!!! I have 2 dogs an akita english bulldog mix and a beagle and I have to say the beagle is in charge

  15. He is so cute. DOGS RULE!!!!!!
    At least that is what my 5 chihuahuas say. They have me trained really well. My little girl (Gidget) makes me pack her from the bedroom to the livingroom or from the livingroom to the bedroom. My hubby says her legs are broke. But I have seen him pack her also.

  16. i love your blog, the idea is fantastic, im dog lover myself and a dog is in my wishlist right now. =)thanks for adding me.

  17. Mash has won the cute little puppy notepad!
