My Little Lap Dog

Let me first say that Riley is overgrown (sorry to hurt your feelings, Riley!).  She’s about 22 inches at the withers (breed standard for a female is 17-19 inches) and she weighs in at 54 pounds.  According to the breed standard, females should weigh between 35-45 pounds.  Luckily her vet says she’s in “perfect shape” though.  I guess because she’s taller she can weigh more…who knows.  Anyway, I say all this to prep you for this picture…  Me and my “Australian Cuddle Dog:”

This is where she decided to position herself the other night…sigh.  She just can’t contain herself…she loves people too much!

  1. Riley you sure have the life. Cuddling with Mom.. Louie is Mom's snuggle boy. Gus is the enforcer and then there is Callie she is just a Pest.. Riley, you have all of us beat thought. Gus weighs in at about 43 pounds, Louie is like 37 and taller than Gus, sort of my gangly teenager. Callie is the shorter of all three but definitely the wide body. She probably is about 35 pounds and could stand to loose a bit.. Stay cool RileyBig Sloppy KissesGus, Louie and Callie

  2. I thought for sure your boys would weigh more than Riley. I guess she really is way bigger than the breed standard! I wonder how tall your guys are? I doubt they're still long enough for you to measure!

Riley loves hearing from her friends!
