Riot has figured out how to “work the system “.   He got a good massage, a car trip, a visit to Petsmart, and didnt have to do a thing to gett all his!!   You have a good therapist whi knew not to push him through  a y stuff that he wasn’t  up for.  That can cause more harm  than good.

Glad he had a good walk the other day, as well as a good time yesterday.  That’s  really all it’s  about, Riot having a good time!  He doesn’t  care how long the walk is, he just wants the opportunity  to be outside, sniffing the air, taking time to “stop and smell the Rose’s, and being with you😊

Picture, we need another picture fix of this handsome boy!!!

Thanks for another smile making video of Riot.  Such a happy boy!😀   And quite a good catcher too!  

I know I say this over and over, but he is soooo handsome!  It’s  hard to believe he’s  a senior, much less one who went through  major surgery not too long ago.😎

Thank you all again. Yes, big balls are important. He swallowed two when he was a bit over a year old. He took them from other dogs at the park. One needed surgery. 

That squeaky blue ball should last a while. I hope, anyway.

He always lives up to his name.

Yes. It’s very scary. Thankfully he wasn’t hurt. He grew out of it, thankfully.

Yeah definitely, it’s amazing it wasn’t any  more serious. Our Wyatt ate a towel once (he dines on inappropriate objects occasionally) that landed him in the hospital for several days! He’s eaten a number of weird things over the years but thankfully seems to have outgrown his taste for non-food objects.

Oh no. That’s awful. My mom had a Dane many years ago that ate so many dish towels.

Riot jumped on the couch today! We haven’t even tried to do that assisted yet. We'[re almost 4 month post amputation. I didn’t see, but I heard about it. Now I need to be there, and get a picture. I’m glad he still has two weeks until his next chemo round. We can keep building his muscles up.
