Harvey came from a Rescue Society. These dogs need a lot of exercise. They are very active and very stubborn, but once trained are very loyal. Harvey used to run 2 miles through the Estate each morning and evening. Like all male Weimeraners he tried to dominate other male dogs. In the beginning Harvey had a nasty tendency to bite .. so he lost his testicles and much to my surprise it cured the problem. I was much against the operation (being a bloke myself) .. but would advise anyone to consider it if you have a problem dog. Thanks are due to Frances for stopping me from having him put down on the spot. I am glad to say that Harvey became much less aggressive and no longer bit people, although I always had to keep an eye on him. Thanks are due to the policemen he tried to chew and who waited for him to behave. Thanks even to the "locals" he did chew. (Sorry about the chest-wadders Adam, and to Easty if he stopped you from coming into the pub!). At the "Dog and Chicken" Harvey learned to live with others dogs like Bruno, Scooby et alii. Latterly he lived in Dorset enjoying walks around Poundbury and occasionally sniffing the odd rabbit warren around Weymouth, watching our every move and sleeping in a chaise longue.

 

It is with much regret that I have to report that Harvey passed away quietly amongst loving family in October 2009. He will be much missed by all, having been a loyal and devoted ally in times of joy and great adversity. He kept me warm when times were cold, raised my spirits when others were sought and showed a joy of life at every twitch of tail and turn, even to the very end. A loyal friend in a foreign land.

Harvey at home

When's my next walk? Still keen.

Sleeping in a chaise longue..can't be bad!

Ok so my teeth are no longer up to it, but just let me suck it for a while. Then I will show you.

Just a twig.
