Christmas in MIchigan

Hey pals,

We're back from our Christmas trip to Michigan.

I hope all my pals had a very nice Christmas, me and Caileigh had a good time. There's lots of snow in Michigan. We went on several big walks in the fields by my Auntie's house. Caileigh even got to run free.

Dad put me in charge of her, so I had to keep my eyes on the rascal. She stayed real close and was a good girl.

We also got to meet my cousin, Bailey. He's a Boykin Spaniel. There were four dogs in total: me, Caileigh, Bailey and Clarise. All of us got along really well. Bailey was real nice to open up his house to us.

Guess what else? Dad and I drove to visit Demon Flash Bandit and Angel Zoom Smokey!!!

I have to be honest, I was a little mean and I feel terrible about it. I think I was overwhelmed a little by DFB and his sister. Dad was disappointed in me and I had to listen to him tell me so during the ride home. Dad got to spend time with them and said they were very sweet. Dad brought DFB his favourite--Burger King.

Dad had a really nice time talking with DFB's Mom. They gave me and Caileigh some Christmas gifts. A stuffed racoon and skunk. I think the skunk sprayed Caileigh on the way home. BOL!!!

I also got to spend time with DFB's Mom. We cuddled on the couch while she and Dad talked.

Well, Caileigh and I were happy to get home on Monday. We like our routine and I'm happy to get back into it.

I hope everyone had a very nice time with their families. Oh, I'd like to wish my pal, Wesley a happy birthday today.

Bark at you later, pals.

Hey pals!!!

Caileigh and I would like to wish all our pup pals a very happy new year.

We love all of you and your families.

Be safe tonight.

If any of you are looking for me, I'm picking up the Z-Pup and we're heading to Demon Flash Bandit's for a big bash. Luckily his address is still in the GSP.

Your pals, Riley and Caileigh

 

Staycation for me and Caileigh

Hey pals!!!!

Mom and Dad went on vacation to Costa Rica. Although I was standing next to the door and ready to join them when they left, sadly I had to stay behind and take care of Caileigh.

Dad told me to look out for her, since this was the first time Mom and Dad would be away from her.

No worries, I took great care of her. Oh, there was also a friend of Mom's staying with us, but most of the caregiving was done by me.

Luckily, Caileigh listens to me and follows all of my orders. She was a good girl and we enjoyed Mom's friend as well.

But let me tell you, I was so happy when Mom and Dad walked through the door. I was jumping around, making cries of joy and delivering big hugs. Caileigh was also happy to see Mom and Dad, but she didn't miss them like I missed them.

Life is great again--my family is together.

Hey pals,

My sweet friend Doo is dog of the week.

Congrats Doo, we're so happy for you. What a great week you're going to have.

If you're not pals with Doo, go by and say hi.

Also, my pal Tanner is dog of the day.

I can't believe I'm pals with such celebrities.

 

Sometimes . . .

I can be mad at Dad.

On Saturday, little miss Caileigh happily joined Dad in the ensuite bathroom where the water was running in the big soaker tub. I took one look and headed down stairs.

Caileigh on the other hand got into the tub and let Dad give her a bath. She didn't love it, or at least that's what she told me. Nonetheless she went along with it.

When Dad was done with her, he came looking for me.

I was in my doghouse, under the dining room table. Dad approached from one side and I backed up. Then he went around to the back and I moved forward. No way! No bath for the Rye Rye!

Dad then started to reposition the chairs, blocking me off. I saw an opening and took off to the kitchen. That wasn't the best move. I backed myself into a corner. Dad took me by the collar and led me upstairs.

I went happily, I am a good boy . . . until we were just outside of the ensuite. Then I put the brakes on and planted myself. Like a statue, deeply set into the ground. Dad tried and tried, but I wasn't going anywhere. Then Dad picked me up. "No fair!" I barked.

Dad was nice and kissed my head and told me I was a good boy, but I still had my sad face on. The entire time Caileigh ran around the tub, jumped up and sniffed my face and was the happiest little girl ever. I guess she was taking great pleasure in my sadness.

Finally it was over and ran around the house and rubbed myself on the carpet.

I'm quick to forgive, so Dad was back to being number 1 (behind Mom) in my books after he gave me a bunch of treats.

Why the baths, you may ask?

Well, Caileigh and I went to visit our family. It was awesome fun. Caileigh's two brothers, Tank and Ty, were there and her sister, Gretchen. Her Mom, and my sister, Miyah, was a little grumpy and not all that happy to see us. My Dad, Theo was trilled to have me visit. The two of us really had a great time. Dad recently had the "operation", so I was able to give him some good advice.

Last we got to see my grandma, Fiona. She's getting up in age (12) and doesn't move as well as she used to. We shared pleasantries and for most of the night she slept.

We have some photos of all of us running and playing. Dad will post them soon.

Today is a day of romance and I want to wish all my lady friends a very happy Valentine's Day!! If I could, I'd plant a big smooch on all of your noses.

With all this love, also comes some sadness. My Mastiff pal, Moses is going to the Bridge today. His family will miss him dearly, especially Roudy. I know that Moe will make great friends at the Bridge. I think the gang could use a big boy like Moe.

We'll miss you, Buddy.

Wyoming

On Sunday night our friend Wyoming made her journey to the Bridge.

I know that she was greeted by her Mom, Cheyenne, and many wonderful pups and cats; Cookie and Rosie just being two of them.

It's been a really hard six months or so. We've seen many wonderful friends go to the Bridge, such as Ernie George, Sandra Marie, Rinky, Wyoming's Mom, Cheyenne, my good pal, Quincy, Louie, Boudy, Moe and Gabby, Ben, my Dalmation friend, Remington, and Ulli.

I consider myself lucky to have known each of these wonderful pups. To have been able to share their triumphs, adventures and love.

Wyoming was a cancer survivor. Her strength and determination resonated throughout her diaries. Her Mom will miss her dearly, as will I.

 

Happy St. Paddy's Day

Hey pals,

Both Caileigh and I have Irish names, thanks to Mom being Irish.

So today is a big deal for us. Both Mom and Dad are heading out tonight, but Dad has promised to bring back special treats for me and Caileigh. I know it'll be some tasty MEATZ.

So, happy St. Paddy's Day to all our pals.

I'd like to give a special bark-out to Huey. Some of you are friends with him, while others of you will remember me writing about my dear friend, Quincy. The lovable golden went to the Bridge back in December and we miss him very much.

Like many super cool pups at the Bridge, Quincy helped guide his family to a special bundle of joy. His name is Huey and he's a GoldenDoodle. Aside from being super cute, Huey has been on a roll of late. He has three diary of days under his young belt and today he's dog of the day. Caileigh and I would like to give a special congrats to Huey.

On a sad note, our German Shorthair Pointer friend, Remington, is making his journey to the Bridge today. Our thoughts are with him and his family. We know that he will be welcomed by wonderful pups at the Bridge. We'll miss you Remington. Run, play and love at the Bridge.

 

My horse sister celebrated her birthday

Hey pals,

On Sunday, my horse sister, Daune (Dawn), celebrated her 27th birthday!!!!

Can you believe that?

She got lots of special treats that are just for horses, but that didn't stop me from wanting to give them a try.

Caileigh and I went to the barn to celebrate with Daune, but the two of us were more interested in exploring. I wanted to show Caileigh all of the good stinks.

Dad was going crazy with our pulling. I heard him say, "If the two of you keep pulling me, we're going home!" Next thing we know, we're heading back home. I think it was something Caileigh did, it couldn't have been me. I go to the barn all the time.

When we got home Dad had some cake. Mom stayed at the barn and continued to celebrate.

Daune's birthday marks the start of the birthday season. Next month, both Caileigh and I will be celebrating our days and in June and then in August, Dad and Mom will have their days.

All I can say is that there better be special dog treats for our birthdays and I'm not sharing with Daune.

 

The Rosinator, Easter Egg Hunt and my Cuz Bailey

Hey pals,

Yesterday would have been sweet Rosie's 12th birthday. Dad and I sat together and shared some nice memories of The Rosinator.

Although Caileigh isn't a relative of Rosie's, Dad sees a lot in her that reminds him of Rosie. She was ten when she went to the Bridge but behaved just like a puppy.

We know that she's having a great time at the Bridge. She has Cookie looking out for her. She also has some of the greatest pals.

Those pups know how to have fun, but most importantly they know how to love.

Thanks to all our pals who sent us beautiful messages. It means a lot to us that you were thinking of Rosie.


Easter Egg Hunt!!!!

That's right pals. Today we're going on a hunt. This will be my third year in a row, but Caileigh's first. I've been telling her how much fun it is. It's for a great cause--Dogs for Autism.

I hope Dad is able to get some photos.

My Cuz Bailey is also coming to stay with us this weekend. Caileigh is really excited. I have to find my Sheriff Badge because I know I will have to set some rules and lay down the law. It's always a crazy time when two puppies are together.

Thanks pals for the Easter messages. We're going to have a busy weekend with family from Michigan and Ireland.

I would like to wish all of my pals and their packs the very best Easter. We cherish all our friendships and although we aren't together over this holiday, you are in our thoughts and hearts.

Be nice to your neighbourhood bunnies this weekend.
