Riley: "Riley was our baby girl. We adopted her from a rescue group when she was about 10 weeks old. We had been looking for a pup for awhile, and when we saw Riley, we just knew she was our girl. She picked us really. She had been abandoned with her siblings out on a mesa.
She brought so much joy to our lives. Her Papa wasn’t a “dog person” before he met her, but she stole his heart instantly. She enabled him to feel an unconditional love that he had never felt before, and she taught me so much. She loved to go to the park and play with her friends. She never met a stranger, and she was so good with new dogs.
I have to laugh at all of the loaves of bread she ate while counter surfing. We lost our sweet girl last September. She was 15 ½ years old. It was so tough to let her go. As I look back now, I am so grateful that she had so much love in her life. I hoped and prayed that she would live a long life, and she did. We were truly blessed. I miss you my sweet RiRi."

 Lilly: "Our sweet Lilly became a member of the family eight years ago. Peanut, the family miniature poodle, welcomed her with great excitement but let her know who was boss.  Lilly loved and respected her "sister" and always looked after her!  Lilly's favorite pastimes are chasing squirrels and keeping them up the tree.  She enjoys watching TV with us, always on the lookout for animals to chase and bark at.  She loves to travel, staying in hotels and meeting new friends. 
Lilly is such a joy and important member of our family. We love and cherish her very much! 
She's such a good girl too. Dogs are the best!!!" Judy
