Puppy Love

The Life of Riley
October 2007

My iTunes: Oh! Gravity. by Switchfoot

Our Checklist:
Get a house. Check
Get 2 cars. Check
Get puppy. Check

The transition is complete. We are back in the US folks.

Meet Riley. He is our new puppy. He loves licking faces and toes, football and hopping through monkey grass. He is such a sweetie. He is one of those so-called "designer dogs"...a Labradoodle. I didn't type it wrong....he is a lab/poodle mix. All of the great characteristics of a lab with the bonus of being smaller and he doesnt shed! Did I mention that he is very smart? He has fit right into our family, bonding with each of our children in his own sweet way.

I am positive that you will be seeing more of our newest additon on the blog. Here are a few starter pics of his first day in our family! Have a great week everyone!

I heard all about him today from your mom. He's so cute! I know he will be loved and give back much love in return.

Mark said...

Ah, a puppy. Soon to be the most cherished addition among that list.

Congratulations on settling back into the U.S. I'm sure a few things are hard to get used to again after a year in England.

Anna, he's so cute. Great shots of him with the family.
My son and his family will be getting a Labradoodle sometime in the near future. They did a lot of research and think this will be the perfect match for their family.

Too cute, Anna. We have some friends with a Labradoodle and she is the cutest thing. They have a silly name...but they're really wonderful dogs. Congratulations on the family edition
