Wheelie Wednesday - Meet Hector-Farley

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!

Farley arrived here on Saturday afternoon! Mom cut the tape on the box and out popped Hector-Farley's head! Mitch was right there to witness the whole thing!

Mitch asked him right off the bat what his real name was! He told Mitch that his name was Farley, not Hector!

We have spent hours getting to know each other!

Farley is one cool guy! He says that he is not a clone of our wheelie friend, Hector! He says that he's a HUGE admirer of Hector's and wants to be just like him in every way, shape and form! So that's why he looks exactly like him and has a bandana exactly like Hector's! Our conversation continued over tea......

Farley said that he's from a small town in Texas and his owner knew that Hurricane Ike was coming and wanted to get Farley as far away as possible as soon as possible! He told me that he was lonely and didn't have a loving home and that's one reason why he looked up to Hector and considered him his hero! He also told me that Ike was just the excuse his owner needed to list him on ebay and send him on his way!
Farley has the most beautiful eyes! They just sparkle!

Then it was Maggie's turn to meet Farley! She told him that he'd wouldn't have to worry about not being loved and cared for at our house! He's got his forever home right here!

Mr. Goofy Rooster overheard the conversation and came over to welcome Farley! They liked each other instantly!

Farley told us that one of his greatest wishes was to be a wheelie! So we gave him wheels!

We're so glad that Farley has come to live with us! We're going to get along just fine!

See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn


  1. Welcome to your furever home, Farley! We're really glad you escaped that awful storm and we know Maggie & Mitch will love you furever! We like your new wheels too!

  2. Farley, you've landed on your wheels that's for sure. You couldn't be at a better home!!!!

    ps. come to our blog maties. We've got something for you!!!

  3. Cool. Hi Farley! Can't wait to hear about your adventures too!

  4. Hi everyone!

    I'm so glad Autumn now has a brother, just like Maggie having Mitch for her baby brother.

    Sorry I've been so quiet lately. That barn raising is amazing! Much nicer than any of the construction in our neighborhood!

    Your pal,


  5. How lovely to have tea with your new friend! Thank you for rescuing Farley! I look forward to hearing about your adventures together

  6. Isn't Farley a sweetie!! And a Texan too. Welcome Farley. You're going to love your new home. Everbody is so very nice from the wheelies, to the doggies, to the humans! We can't wait to see how a Texas doggie does up in the cold country! Remember your manners now, Farley!
    Hugs from 2 other Texas dogs,

  7. Autumn! I am crushed! Crushed! I thought I was your one and true wheelie and now you are living with that Farley! How could you?

    I am so over you. I am heading to My Space right now to find a wheelie gal who won't throw me over for the first pretty face she finds on eBay.

    Sad Hector

  8. Farley really looks like Hector! It's amazing!!! I think he must be Hector's long lost brudder or something...

  9. Uh, if you need any private investigations to explore Farley/Hector's backstory -- we are accepting assignments now that we are hapily ensconced in our new digs.

  10. Farley is on his way. What better place to blow in from Ike than your house. He will be able to live in the lap of luxury for the rest of his life. Autumn will have him out in the garden in no time.

  11. Autumn, my love, sorry I overreacted. I just went kind of berserk. I've been under a lot of stress lately with the boys at camp and all the wild stuff going on around here.


    BTW - Do you happen to know how tall Farley is because he looks kind of short next to you.

  12. He looks like a nice kid!! You are very lucky!! ANd now he has whells too!! Love A+A
