Rainy Day Post

Not a whole lot has been going on. With the tropical storm coming through, there's not much we can do outside :( Maybe I'll try to teach a new trick to Riley and post it later. Anyways, we had some fun last night, Riley and I went to another friends house for a BBQ/ another doggie play date. Riley loves to go over there because he gets a lot of attention and gets to play with is friend Skyler, who is about 6yrs old I think. 

Now, you would never know that when we first introduced these two, Skyler wanted nothing to do with Riley. He would growl and avoid Riley at all cost.

...Riley was a bouncing, bold, in-your-face, young kind of dog...

"Meeeee? Naaawwww"
...While Skyler was a older, quiet, use to smaller dog play, kind of dog...

"What you want, you youngen?"

But, with some rules set for Riley, learning to be calmer, and not pouncing on every dog you see, and some time/exposure/patience for Skyler, they are the best-est of friends now :) It's so warming to see dogs learn to play and really enjoy each others company :)

(ignore my friends haha they were talking about renting a RV to camp in)


  1. It is so wonderful that you take him for play dates. That is so important.

  2. They're like kids LOL! They have all those toys and all they want to do is roll around on the floor. I enjoyed that, as you say its good to see them playing like that.

  3. Thanks for sharing the video. It's so lovely to see two of them playing!
