I took Riley by the vet today to weigh her as I was starting to think she was looking a little porky… I was right! She’s hasn’t just gotten a little porky–she’s gained 6 pounds since we were there about 3 months ago!! 6!!! Sheesh. She’s up to a whopping 58 pounds now, although she doesn’t look all that fat, just a little rotund.
So now we’re doing a big diet and exercise regimen with her! We went to a local park this morning and walked around the lake there and Riley got to get a little wet. Then, since it was hot, we came home and filled up the kiddie pool for the dogs in the backyard. They had a blast with both things. Chloe doesn’t like to share the kiddie pool with Riley, so we had to hold Chloe outside of the pool every so often so Riley could get in and cool off some.

Walking with Chloe and Grandma trailing behind us. Chloe caught up quickly though and pretty much trotted the whole way!
A loverly butt shot.
Cooling off a bit in the lake. There’s a little sandy “beach” area that you can wade in.
Chloe likes to try to bite at the water that you splash at her. She was the one that spent the majority of the time in the pool, but we did give her little breaks so Riley could cool off some.
Riley liked to lie down in it and cool off her belly.
And of course she went to the dirtiest spot in the yard and rolled around, getting filthy! Isn’t that how it always works?
I love this picture of her…she looks so happy!! 🙂
We hope you all get to do something fun today with your humans!
I realize it’s been over a week since I updated this blog. The problem is nothing really exciting has happened this week. Riley’s been pretty good, surprisingly. She’s been on a couple of walks this week, one today at Sandy Bottom (which should be renamed “Soggy” Bottom). Now I’m sure since I’m writing that she’s been good, she’ll do something bad about 5 minutes after I post this. Well, at least I’ll have something exciting to post!!
