Riley's favorite toy is a tennis ball, and her favorite game is keep-away. She'll take the ball by the fuzz in her front teeth (as shown) and she'll growl ferociously as we chase her around and around the coffee table. Karen, this shot is for you (sorry about the crazy eyes).
Our darling pup has been working on a hole. We fill it, she digs it. When I took this picture yesterday, the hole was about one tennis ball deep. I figured if we just left it unfilled it would take the fun out of digging (no soft dirt), but now it is about two tennis balls deep and mama is not happy. Riley is really sneaky, so I rarely catch her in the act even though she has only been outside a few hours a day in this heat.
