First off...Riley is doing ok. Of course, "ok" is somewhat fluid with him, and relative to the current situation, but he's home still, and nothing seems WORSE. His belly is still bothering him, but the oozing area on his incision looks better on the outside to us. He has ate decently (although very picky) and has been decently active. But cranky. Much more cranky than my usual Rileybear. He goes to Duke this week, so we will see what they have to say also. So that is an update on him. Everyone wants answers (including us!), but that's all I got. Welcome to our world with Riley :o)
Next up....Miss Misty
She is about 4 months old now.
She is kinda crazy.
She seems to be over her biting everything phase, although she still loves to tug on Travis' pants (think there is some dominance issues going on there).
She loves to play on the playset outside.
And she slides down the slide, without coaxing, its her preferred exit method
She is still a little thing (about 11 pounds) which is so different for us former big dog owners.
She is never too far away from us (although we did have to put her on the underground fence collar)
She adores my boys! (speaking of adoring...notice Travis pushing Riley? :o) )
And every boy should have a dog, right?
Riley had a little fun outside today in Travis' old powerwheel racecar. It is meant for toddlers (read...it is very, verrrrrry slow), but couldn't quite get the hang of the button to make it go, so as you can see above, Travis just pushed him around. Jay modified it a little tonight, to make it easier for Riley to push.
Eitherway, he loved riding in it!
And today, was (is?) my birthday, and birthday's mean cake right? My mom made me my favorite...strawberry cake with white icing and fresh strawberries on top (and some chopped up too with sugar...YUM)
And welcome to our after-dinner world! If it's not obvious, click on this picture to see the details better!
When Riley is done eating, and ready to get down, he gets frustrated. (the crankiness of his sore belly didn't help either) Frustration means tugging at his hair/ears. Whatever is on his hands transfers to hair. See?
Travis' baseball season begins this week. He is very VERY excited. Jay is planning to be an assistant coach, and I volunteered to be the team mom. So that makes Scouts/Baseball/Golf that Travis has going on! He's going to be a busy little guy!
