Life with Riley: 10 months old

IMG_5017Riley is growing up! He likes to chew things and has a particular love for putting holes in area rugs. Not little throw rugs, mind you…the room sized variety. My husband is not pleased.

The breeder told us he would be about 60 lbs. full grown, which would be when he was about two years old. Well guess who’s 60 lbs already? Our very large Collie! Yay! The vet has predicted he’ll be about 75 lbs when he completely fills out.  Again, the husband is not amused.

Oh, and Riley thinks he’s a lap dog. I’ll just leave that thought with you.

Have any tips for the chewing? A dog story? Cat story? I’m all ears.

      I love these knid of dogs, my older brothers and sister had one I was about 2 at the time they named him Laddie, I know when I was 4 I do remember laying on the sofa and Laddie would lay next to me. I miss him and always wanted to get another one.

      If you find a toy he likes that he can chew and when ever you find him chewing something that he shouldn’t just say no in a firm voice take it away and give him the toy he can chew. I raised Great danes for 10 years, then do to cronick pain had to let them go, the Dane lean can kill ya. I then socialized Chihuahua pups for a breeder for 10 years. Now I just enjoy the pup I have and the 3 grandpups that live with me. Good luck.
