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!
