Riley’s first adventure outdoors

Riley had an exciting weekend!  On Saturday we took Riley to a place nearby that has a couple of hiking trails.  What we didn’t know was that there is a HUGE off leash dog park at the beginning of all the hiking trails!  (She had also gone on a hike with Jamie on Friday, so technically this was her second hike).

We kept Riley on the leash because she’s still so young and would never respond to us calling her name with all that excitement!  Plus she gets her third round of vaccinations this week, and the vet said no dog parks until she gets her third series.  A few dogs came over and sniffed, but we continued on our way to the hike.

She did great on the hike and was a sniffing machine.  On our way back to the car we had a little mishap with a big dog.. he came trampling over to Riley and somehow Riley ended up on her back and howling!  I picked her right up and within 5 seconds she was fine.  I think it was more traumatic for me than her.

After we got home, we decided to give her a bath and brush her.  She bites a lot less when we put her on a table..  I think this face says exactly how she feels about getting baths and brushed.

She also had her first sleepover!  She stayed at my parents on Sunday night while we were away for our 1st anniversary.  They said she did great!   They both noticed a decrease with her biting!  On the car ride home she sat on my lap and crashed for the next couple of hours from her busy weekend.  Her 16 week appointment is tomorrow, she is getting so big!!
