Hi, my name is Harper; I am a 2-year-old coonhound mix and I love to get all the attention I can get! I enjoy going outside to play and I am on the hunt for a glorious place to call home with lots of room. I have a giant personality so I need a home that is willing to work with me and my quirky behaviors. Come meet me; I may be the dog of your dreams.

The first recipe I tried needed a bit of amending and ended up being a cross between my old standby and a "spicy" meatloaf. It originally called for sriracha hot chili sauce, which I did not have on hand. So I replaced it with hot sauce and it ended up having a nice spicy flavor without being overpowering or extremely hot.
