A social media memory popped up on my timeline this morning about getting to sleep in until 7am. Nowadays I am lucky to drag this crew out of bed by 11am…I am always the first one up with Riley, but those big dogs have quickly adapted to “house dogs” in the past year.
Our week has been hectic with work and community events. Riley has some kind of “summer rash” and is taking steroids and antibiotics. Riley on steroids is just loads of fun! He eats three times his normal amount of food and is ten times louder than usual. Just in case you weren’t aware that he needs something he will pound his feet on the ground howling until you acknowledge his need. On Friday evening I dropped him off with Big Ed to give the Big Dogs a break. He helped paint the deck and then curled up on the floor to take a nap disproving my discussion about how wild he is!
This morning he has played outside, eaten multiple bones, woke up the two legged, and announced to the neighborhood that he is awake and looking for activities. And it’s not even lunchtime…
