A cool picture of Harley and Joel.  Harley starred in a song written by Joel.  And they worked on an album together.  Harley and Joel were tight.

Harley was always present for all the most important moments. Here is Harley hanging out with me while we record my first record.

You can hear the jingle jangle of Harley’s collar on many many recordings.

Dear Alissa,

I am so deeply sorry. I have been emotionally reeling since I first read the sad, sad news late Saturday night. Now, with eyes raw and red, I lift my glass to the memory of a dear friend. But I feel such joy in having been honored with a real bond with the furry little fellow. I liked to refer to him as “my vicarious dog” but there was nothing vicarious about how much affection we had for each other. Through the good times and the emergency rooms, Harley’s character always made it interesting. How blessed you are, Alissa, to have shared such a wonderful relationship. He is a prince of a dog who made a mark in this world and will no doubt await you in the next. I will carry Harley’s memory in my heart my whole life. And I will never stop missing him. I truly feel that I have lost a friend.

“Harlequin Romance in the morning,
Harlequin Romance in the evening…”

With great Love and sorrow,

Tom Herbers

Hi Alissa,When I went running today at the club, I took my ipod and the first song that came on was this…

Robert Plant wrote it about his dog, Strider. (Here is a VIDEO of the song)

Led Zeppelin – Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp


Ah caught you smiling at me, That’s the way it should be,

Like a leaf is to a tree, so fine.


Ah all the good times we had, I sang love songs so glad

Always smiling, never sad, so fine.


*As we walk down the country lanes, I’ll be singing a song,

Hear me calling your name.

Hear the wind within the trees, Telling Mother Nature ’bout you and me.


Well if the sun shines so bright, Or on our way it’s darkest night

The road we choose is always right, so fine.


Ah can your love be so strong When so many loves go wrong

Will our love go on and on…


My, my la de la come on now it ain’t too far,

Tell your friends all around the world,

Ain’t no companion like a blue eyed merle.

Come on now well let me tell you,

What you’re missing, missing, ’round them brick walls.


So of one thing I am sure, It’s a friendship so pure,

Angels singing all around my door, so fine.

Yeah, ain’t but one thing to do Spend my natural life with you,

You’re the finest dog I knew, so fine.


When you’re old and your eyes are dim, There ain’t no old Shep gonna happen again,

We’ll still go walking down country lanes, I’ll sing the same old songs,

Hear me call your name.


(Tom didn’t know this at the time, but one of the last things Harley and I did together was listen to a live Led Zeppelin CD in the car. Strange)

Someone Else’s Dog

Someone Else’s Dog
by J. Lederer

I was stoned out in the afternoon
singing songs to someone else’s dog
Caught in the spaces in-between
my best intentions and my dreams
A space so small
I could not breach it

If you want to see something
take a look outside
a look outside your window
all those people
they’re not you
they’re not me
no, their medicine is unique
take a look outside yourself

All those places that I knew
when I was little
got smaller as I grew
or so it seemed
When in fact they never changed at all
that iron gate out in the schoolyard
I could fit in-between it


I was stoned out in the afternoon
singing songs to someone else’s dog…
