Riley LOVES to fetch, especially his favorite squeaky fish. His fish can be anywhere in the house and you just have to mention his name and Riley runs to go get him and see what game you will play with him. He actually loves his fish so much that he carries him into dinner sometimes and leaves him next to his dinner dish. We play hide and seek and fetch with him and also ask him to wait to go fetch and he can only go when you give him the 'okay'. He has really good restraint. You can even say 'good boy' or 'do you want to fetch fish' etc and he won't go until he hears the 'okay'. In the video he is waiting for me to throw fish. He sometimes gets his tail whipping around in a circle so hard that he drums his tail on his back.

Sunny days are great for a nice leashed walk in Steveston. Riley gets out in front and leads the way through a crowd. He is quite sensitive to the slightest leash movement and helps guide him left and right so he knows which way to go. People smile when they see him walking along as he looks like he has somewhere to be, like a dog with a job. He has a cute strut and his little ears flop up and down.

Funny little Riley fact: Riley is completely unconcerned about the vacuum cleaner...he will fetch fish to my and drop it next to the moving vacuum and wait for me to throw him. I also discovered that he likes the hair dryer. He puts his paws up on my leg and lets me run the dryer over him and he closes his eyes and tucks his head down in enjoyment. Funny dog! This is a foster first for me.
