Riley is a very happy go lucky boy who is a little shy around strangers but warms up really quick when "lovin" and snuggles are involved...he can't resist. He is somewhat reserved, will let his sister run over to people first and will hang back by me until he feels up to saying "hello". Afterwards he will roll and tumble with his sister Erin, to show off to everyone, nipping her ears, running and playing! They are both such happy puppies!
I have set up an Xpen (I call it the play pen!) in my kitchen…it has a swinging door which I leave partially ajar. When I am in the kitchen and Riley is playing he has learned to open the door of the playpen with his nose and goes inside…this is a clue to me that he needs to go out and nine times out of 10 that is exactly what he needs to do! Other times Riley and Erin run and jump the 4 inch part of the pen...jumping to and fro, in and out of the pen after each other...wish I had a video!
Riley is very smart and more patient than his sister. As soon as I begin making their breakfast or dinner, Riley sits patiently while his sister is jumping around like a jumping bean. They both have to settle down and sit nicely before I will serve them their food. They have also learned to sit with a hand signal and wait to get a treat...not to jump all over each other trying to get it! He is very smart and learning quickly! He is an awesome pup...he is on a schedule and very easy to take care of....perfect in his crate and crate is always dry...no accidents there! I am sure he will not be around long! Stay tuned for more updates and pictures too!
