Roan is so happy to have her best buddy back to snuggle with.  When he was at his worst she laid quietly beside him and rested her head on his belly.  Riley has always been so good with the little ones.  He was the same with Emma, patient and gentle.  He's such a big boy, pure muscle and sinew, but the most gentle dog I've ever known.

Riley is nine-years-old, but I swear he looks like such a puppy here.  He's just got that innocent kind of face, full of wonder and trust, the only thing giving away his age, his bit of white beard.

We are just overjoyed at how well he's doing since his surgery.  The vets at the University of Minnesota are our heroes.

  1. I love these pictures! Give Riley a scratch behind the ears (and smell them) and tell Roan, "Give me that face!" (While grabbing her sweet muzzle) ok?
