I've been reading for about a month now and decided to take the plunge! We adopted our black lab Riley from a family with 3 kids under the age of 5 (including a newborn), with a tiny house and even smaller back yard. They just had no time for an active dog. We'd been looking for a family pet since our lab/border collieX passed away last fall at the age of 9.
Riley 3 yrs old and he's fit wonderfully into our family. We have 2 young kids (6yrs and 3yrs) and we all love Riley. We quickly learned that Riley is an expert kitchen counter surfer and we lost a few loaves of bread! He also is loving all the exercise as I walk 3km every night after the kids go to bed. Here's a picture of Riley:
We live in Ontario, near London. Thanks for reading!
