New name for Harley?

First off, sorry for my lack of posts recently, nothing has come up worth blogging about! I do keep up the wordless Wednesday's though!

Basically, we have had Harley now about 1 or 2 months, settled in great and is becoming a firm friend with Tango, the problem is...

Harley .... the name Harley, when you read this you more than likely thought im on about two boy grey's, no no no! Harley is infact a girl! She came with this name from her racing name 'Playboy Harley', we kept it because we like the name Harley. However everybody classes her as a boy, even though she has a pink collar, pink tassle, purple harness, considerably smaller than most boy dogs and (this is a big and!!) has no boy 'parts'!!

Bless her we've thought about changing her name, she would get use to a new name quick, she's very alert and intelligent, we've had suggestions like Hayley, Carly, e.t.c.

None seem to fit her though, she is to us a Harley, maybe she will have to live out the rest of her life as a boy! lol

Hope everybody is having a great weekend!


  1. Sweet Harley, she's a beautiful girl! I think the pink collar should tip people off to the fact that she is a girl- but some people insist on being clueless.
    Personally, I was not that surprised when you said Harley was a girl because there was a character named Harley Quinn in the Batman comics (maybe she just needs some diamonds- lol)

  2. Poor Harley!1 Sorry if I've ever made the mistake of using the wrong pronouns. It's frustrating - they always call my dog a boy, too.

  3. Playboy harley...oh dear... There is a puggy that lives by us. Her name is Otto BOL
    momma said Harley is a girls name too.
    Have a fun day

  4. I had a hard time naming the last one. I needed a Tom Boy girl name. Just promise me you won't name her Gracie (over used Greyhound name :-) or Blue. :-)


  5. I suppose you could spell it "Harlie", but then again that won't exactly make it any less confusing when you speak her name! Have to admit, I do believe that we have wrongly addressed her as a him!! BOL

    And don't feel to bad; we've had a hard time keeping up with posts lately too. Darn work getting in the way of our blogging!!

  6. LOL Don't worry Brutus everybody calls Harley a boy, its almost natural now to think of her as a boy LOL. She lives up to a boyish reputation going around burping and letting off foul gas! hehe xx
