I got this message from the family that adopted Riley. As usual, all last names and email addresses have been edited out.

I just wanted to let you know that we put Rileys crate in Ryans room last night. About 10:45 Ryan and Riley went to bed. I put a blanket in his crate, his rope toy and his bone. He never made a peep. I checked on them both this morning and they were both still out cold. Scott is home today with the kids so he’ll be there to referee… We were playing with Casey last night, throwing her ball. She would chase the ball into the kitchen and Riley would chase casey into the kitchen….
They two of them may have some minor scuffles here and there until they come to an agreement of who is who and what is what but I think they will be fine.
We’ll work with Riley and Harry….I was really surprised Harry was afraid…he hasn’t acted that way with anyone he’s met yet. Hopefully they will come to terms as well.
We are really happy you decided to let us keep Riley, he’s a sweet baby. And don’t worry he’ll get plenty of love.
We meant what we said. If you come to town and want to come by give us a call. I can’t always promise the house will be as clean as it was last night, but you’re always welcome.
Question….does Riley like baths? How have you been bathing him…tub….hose….what??? Casey tolerates either…and she gets a bath about once a month…if not she’s beige instead of black and white….not a good look.
Take care, keep in touch….you have our numbers and my e-mail address…
