Riley's (CP's Tramp) 2nd Gotcha Day!

Contributed by her Forever Mom

Riley fka CP's Tramp loves her Forever Yard!
Today is Riley's 2nd Gotcha Day!  She was CP's Tramp, part of the "Working Class No More" group.  She is a very sweet girl and we love her very much.

We drove to meet her Foster Mom in Nag's Head to pick her up.  Riley was partial to women and bonded right away with me.  Dad has worked hard to win her over, and she now runs to the door when he comes home.  Treats helped greatly in this effort!  Maybe one day her fur sister, Mollie, will warm up to her too.  It seems that Mollie preferred to be an only dog!

Riley loves to be outside, and she will chase anything - squirrels, birds, rabbits, leaves, and bits of trash blowing in the wind.  She even chased a fox which was luckily on the other side of the fence!  She often forgets what she is really outside for!

We adopted Riley when one daughter was planning her wedding and the other was getting ready to go off to college.  She has filled a big empty spot in our home and we can't imagine life without her.  She and Mollie make us laugh at least once a day!  She came to us as a timid girl who had just had her last litter, and she has turned into a true Cairn Princess.  

She loves to play with balls, but not if anyone is watching.  While I am making dinner, I will hear her growling at the ball, thump as she pushes it off the sofa and jumps after it, and then back onto the sofa.  If she sees me peeking, she stops right away!

Thank you to everyone at Col. Potter who helped to save this little girl, especially Sharon J., her Foster Mom, Barbara, and especially our Matchmaker, Lisa B.  You have all made our lives much fuller by bringing Riley into our home!
