You know you’re a true dog-lover when you find yourself scrolling through social media in search for cute dog pictures and videos. I don't know about you, but watching dog videos is a stress reliever, time passer, and source of little happy moments throughout my day. It is really my main reason for using Facebook at all. (Besides keeping up with you guys, of course.) I just love watching compilations of guilty dogs or huge dogs that think they are lap dogs. Paul would say that my dog scrolling is a "problem" I have, but I just say, “Look at this dog blowing bubbles!” or “How can you not watch this dog licking a glass door for 5 minutes?!" I'll show you some good ones if you keep reading.
As Riley and I have grown up together, we’ve learned a lot about each other. Riley is the only dog I’ve ever owned. Before I had a dog I knew that they were “a man’s best friend”, but as we grew up together, I learned just how much we can communicate with one another. Riley has a lot of ways to tell me what is on his mind and I talk to him human-style basically all the time. Let me clue you in on some of Riley’s expressions and tell me if your dog does anything like this.
Since Riley, Paul, and I moved in together, we have tried to include the pup in most things that we do. I don’t mean that he was ignored when we lived with my family, but there was almost always someone at home for him to hang out with. That way, we didn’t feel bad to go do things without him because he had a companion. Now that Paul, Rye and I are the three best friends that anyone could have, we take him everywhere with us. I think that he enjoys it. Let me share some of Riley's favorite places to go.
Good morning and thank you for reading my blog! Today I want to share with you something that comes from deep within my heart, and that is names that I call Riley. I remember the day we went to pick out a puppy. We chose the runt of the litter who had black eyeliner markings around his eyes and floppy ears. We would come back in a few weeks to take him home once he was a little more grown up. I came home, picked up a pad of paper, and started writing down a list of potential names for my new fur ball. It was so challenging! A dog’s name is permanent. You only call them one name and that is all the dog will know...or so I thought.
Good afternoon, my friends! Today marks the second full day of my men (Paul and Riley) and me living in our new apartment in Pennsylvania. We have been very busy, but I wanted to catch up with you guys and tell you how Riley did with the move and give you a little advice from what we learned.
