Happy Bark-Day, Riley!

August 4, 2016



Dogs & birthdays are a funny thing. You may think why celebrate a pet's birthday-like they can really tell today is different than any other day...maybe they can maybe they can't.

Bark-Days are not only celebrations for your best friend, but for you too knowing that each day or certain moments in a day you feel special like you do on your birthday. After all, not everyone has someone to welcome them home the moment they walk through the door--no matter the time. Not everyone has someone to love them whether they're a vision of health or sick with the flu.

If you have a dog then you have this special someone.

August 8th marks Riley's Third Bark-Day. & Looking at Riley you may think he was an expensive purchase from a breeder--Riley is a Yorkshire Terrier & a rescue.

Riley is not my first dog-but he is my/my family's first rescue. At 4 months, Riley was seized by animal charity along with 105 other dogs {various ages} from deplorable conditions of a home operated puppy mill.


The older dogs that were seized had more health issues than those of the younger ones--It was during the record-breaking coldest January of all time when were able to bring Riley into our homes...

Flash forward three years & here we are/Riley is...Adopting a shelter pet is probably one of the most rewarding & empowering things you can do.

Okay, Riley has gone from a Rags to Riches type of tale-he's a little spoiled {Obviously, he has his own blog post}, but I am okay with that.

  1. Riley's adoption story is so heartwarming; my family and I adopted our first rescue corgi in February, and it's safe to say that it was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Happy Bark-day, Riley (and here's to many more)!

  3. This is absolutely precious! My dog is a rescue dog as well, and my family always says he rescued us, haha. We just celebrated his 10th birthday, and we go big just as much as you do for Riley!
