Riley's got the blog again. What's not to like about a dog with blog? Who's that I see out of the corner of my eye? "Listen, buddy. You think you're tough? You ain't so tough. I'm not sure who invited you here, but bug off!" It's salmon, right? Or maybe a liver treat? Maybe if I sit real pretty . . .
Seriously? You think this toy is too big for me? I think that leg is just the right size. Let me take a bite of it. I think I'll bite it in the butt, now. Then I'll turn the other cheek. See? There's no toy that's too big for ME! ...and another thing... ...if you think I'm going to recline in . . .
This sign reminds me of kids having a long, lazy summer at a cabin, wearing swimsuits 24/7 and jumping into a lake to cool off from time to time. I can even hear the splashing. Our summer plans don't involve a cabin or a lake, but they do involve some long lazy breakfasts at the ocean, a couple of . . .
Do you recognize him? If you're a regular reader, you may remember that this is Rocky, one of my favorite dogs, otherwise known as GCH Fulla Bull Soulja Boy, Best of Breed at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club show a few months ago. This was taken a few days ago at a show in northern . . .
I take a lot of crap about being overly-attached to this cutie pie. Some people think I'm pathological about it, but of course, I don't buy it. I love my dog. Period. The other day we were at "nose class" with Riley--he's learning to find things by scent. I was talking with the trainers about some . . .
Did I say that I was tired of cute dog photos? I'm not. Not if they involve our Riley. So today, I'll share a few cute photos of the little rascal. There's no more iconic sight than that of a dog and a fire hydrant. Riley usually ignores them on his walks, but some really interesting canine must be . . .
Cute doggies, aren't they? We thought we'd be seeing quite a few of them this coming week as we went behind the scenes and watched dogs get primped and poufed for their big moment(s) at Westminster Dog Show 2015 in New York City. And it would have all been familiar because we attended last year to . . .
Riley was an only dog for a long time. Well, when I count, it's actually only about two years. But still. He was an only dog for the first part of his life. And then his world expanded by three dogs when M. came into the picture. It was a full doghouse. It was also about the time his litttle-dog . . .
You can only imagine how much I missed my Riley. But Sicily was full of dogs--and cats--that seemed to always find the cutest poses. This was one of two adorable puppies that turned up at the Gulfi Wine Estate and made themselves at home. The estate workers made them live outside, which broke my . . .
Nothing more fun than watching K-9 nose work dogs at class. Riley is learning nose work--how to locate things through scent. His command? "Find it"--find scents. Right now, it's his favorite treat food. Later, it'll be other scents. But all in good time. He's completed four of the six classes in . . .
