A Very First Birthday

Yesterday, May 21st, was a very special day.  Riley turned one year old, at least according to her records.  Since I adopted her from a rescue, her birthdate is probably a guess, but her vet records say May 21, 2012 and that's what I'm using.  So that means we had something to celebrate!

Last week a friend sent along a package with all sorts of goodies!  Riley got to taste test some of her treats and really enjoyed them (*after Mom forced me to sit nice for a picture, pfftt*).

Then yesterday came time to open her present.  There was investigating and sniffing and with a little help the package was open.  (*it's a bird, Mom... a bird with a mohawk...*)  The stuffie was a hit - she played with it, she ran from one end of the condo to the other with it, and she took it to her hiding place - under the guest bed. 

She still looks tiny, though she's more than doubled in weight since I brought her home. She still has the energy and craziness of a puppy, though she's grown to enjoy her quiet time. She's officially a dog, but she'll always be my puppy.  Happy very first Birthday, Riley!

Mom still calls us puppy sometimes, but she really wishes Lightning would become less of a puppy and more mature:)

Happy first Birthday, Riley - and many more to come.
