Riley Speaks…

Someone is having withdrawals from his blog mascot fame.

I told him NorEaster asked for photos of him in the comment section today and he seemed to perk up a bit…

Then he started barking orders.

Obviously he’s been thinking a lot while we’ve been laying around, because he had some big ideas for me…

Let it be known that when the alpha speaks, I listen… so here’s another song I recorded back in the day:

04 Turn and Love  by  gitzengirl

Thanks for being so patient with me, guys. I’ll work on a post to update you on life in general… I’m just realizing while putting this little one together that it’ll have to be done in spurts instead of my normal way of writing [which usually consists of me sitting down and babbling until I’m done, otherwise known as rambling], but I’ll do my best to get one up by Monday.

In the meantime, enjoy the song and I hope you have a GREAT weekend…

Miss you all!

    Love this song! such an UP beat!!! (Great message too)
    Okay, I'm so interested in you right where you are. I want to know how in the world you are doing. Was this caused by the brief Dr. visit? I have a million questions...
    I'm praying, and holding you in my head and my heart...hugs for you, smooches for Riley...

  7. Yes, I was wondering the same thing...if the Dr's visit brought this on.
    Riley always looks so "well-kept." How often do you have to have him groomed? I love his big black eyes.

  15. I can only imagine the joy that Riley brings to your life because he sure makes us all smile! Praying for you sweet sister! Praying!

    Hey, have you thought of publishing a book of all those funny photo's of Riley and his alpha-dog quirks? It would be great ... "The Life of Riley." :)

    Have a restful day sweet friend!

    I remember the days sitting in St. Stephen's with you singing this song. It gave me chills then, and it still does. We miss you darling! Hope you feel better soon!

  22. Miss you, too. Sorry I couldn't answer the phone the other day but it was great to get your message!

  23. Thanks for the prayers... I think he's getting a smidge calmer with age, too, which might be making him cuter in my book... :-P

  24. Hey, girl... I've been trying to put a post together all week to update you guys and will hopefully get it up today, so maybe 1/2 million of your questions will be answered. :* Thanks for checking in.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I actually groom him myself, so he gets brushed and trimmed often. He also stays pretty clean since he never leaves the house either! :)

  26. Thanks, Candy. It's funny, when he was a puppy I sang him to sleep at night... can you say child-replacement?!?!?

  27. Thanks, Susan... I really appreciate it so much. I'll hopefully have a post finished later today to put up and explain things for you.

  35. I did them quite a few years ago when I was working at the magazine. I was hired to do a radio jingle and traded for a little bit of studio time. [It was the corniest jingle EVER.]

  36. Hey, Carla... I miss those days so much... there's nothing like singing at St. Steve's.
