|Apache Chief Krueger|
"Dog's are color blind." I have a hard time believing this. Since Riley was a puppy he has gravitated towards items which were blue or red. Mostly red. So we got him a collar, a harness, a leash, a chew bone, and a myriad of other items in red. We refer to his toys by their color too. You'll hear "Go get Red Guy" a lot in our house, and Riley knows just what we are talking about. "Red Guy" is Riley's favorite toy. They have been inseperable since we'd cleaned out Justin's Dad's truck and found him in there. So technically "Red Guy" is Apache's (Jay's parent's dog's) but Apache doesn't mind. Apache is a mild mannered Golden Retriever who is three times the size of Riley, but lets Riley boss him around anyway.
|Napping with "Red Guy"|
So, back to "Red Guy." Where ever Riley is, "Red Guy" is not far from reach. If Riley is hiding out in his fort, aka under the dining room table, "Red Guy" is there too. If Riley is taking a nap... you guessed it, "Red Guy" is napping too. And when I say to Riley "ready for bed?" he immediately picks up "Red Guy" and goes running for the bedroom. It's adorable really. "Red Guy" however is beginning to smell so he's going to be going through the wash shortly and no doubt Riley will be sitting in the back room waiting until he comes out of the dryer.
