Great day - Riley's home and Winston got a ribbon!

Riley came home last night!! Woohoo!! My friend was a couple days late returning to Pittsburgh because his dad was in the hospital. His dad is feeling much better now and I have my baby back with me!

I was so happy to see him and it warmed my heart to see how happy Winston and Riley were to see each other. They have been so good last night and this morning - wrestling a little but also sharing toys and laying down next to each other while chewing on bones.

I'm so happy! My home didn't feel full until I got my second furball back!

This morning Winston took his basic obedience test and he passed with flying colors and got a nice blue ribbon! He passed all nine exercises - sit/down on command, sit maintain for 60 seconds, down maintain for 60 seconds, polite walking, recall, "go visit" (running to a stranger and lying at their feet instead of jumping), offered focus, and grooming/handling. Yay Winston!!

Good job, Winston !

Everybody sounds very very happy to be reunited. There is nothing better than a full house.
