Here is Riley posing with her framed portrait. I think she likes it!
Riley is my companion while I’m painting. She’s a great reminder to get up and move around. She always appreciates a potty break or a few minutes of tug-of-war. Riley inspires or (nags) me to take my daily walks or to head out to the park for an hour. She also reminds me to step away from a painting for a while when I’m feeling challenged. I love the days we get to paint and hang out together!
This girl is a very special pup! Her ears don't match and they don’t work. She was born deaf and when I gave her a home no one realized she couldn’t hear. But fast forward, with some training and lots of time, she has become a spunky, sassy, full of energy, spoiled, sign language responding dog! My life is better because of her!
