Lately, Riley’s favorite thing to do is sit at the bottom of trees and wait for a squirrel to come down. He has so much patience; waiting up to an hour without moving. When he’s not stalking squirrels, Riley loves to squeak toys and rip the squeakers out, play soccer, and play with other dogs at the dog park. 4. How do you keep your pet active and still mange to get things done?
Although my life is extremely busy, I always make time for exercising Riley. I want him to be happy and healthy. On weekends, after a photoshoot, I take Riley for a 1-2 hour walk– usually to the dog park. During the week, I walk him as soon as I come home from school for at least a half hour before rushing to dance class or studying and doing homework. And, of course, I always squeeze in a fun play session with a soccer ball or squeaky PrideBites toys. 5. What are a few of your favorite pet products and why?
BarkBox and PrideBites paws down. BarkBox is a monthly subscription box that sends really awesome items and treats. BarkBox also donates a large percentage to shelters across the nation and has started many campaigns to find shelter dogs homes. PrideBites also giving back to the shelter dogs. For every toy sold, ProdeBites donates $1 to animal shelters and organizations that help dogs in need. The toy is durable, great for fetch, squeaks, and even floats! How cool is that?! PrideBites was named “Best Dog Toy” in 2012. 6. If your pet could be one super hero who would it be and why?
Hmmm. I don’t know much about superheroes, but Riley is definitely my knight in furry armor. 🙂 After a stressful day, just seeing his face light up when I walk through the door is enough to make me smile. He has unconditional love for everyone he meets. 7. What are a few of your favorite things about your pet?
Once in a while I forget Riley is a dog. He acts and looks so human sometimes by the way he shows his emotions through facial expressions, and when he groans and whines when he doesn’t want to be woken up. He’s like a hairy child. I like how Riley can sense my mood. If I’m stressed, he’ll prance over with a goofy face and lick me half to death. If I’m happy, he’ll greet me with kisses before running to get his PrideBite toys. If I’m sad or tired, he’ll lay beside me. I don’t know what it is about him, but Riley encourages me to work hard, get good grades, and be more social. 8. An Extra tidbit; Without Riley, I don’t think I would be where I am today– happy, healthy, hardworking, and friendly. Without Riley, I wouldn’t have picked up a camera and realized how much I love photography.(@rileybeann IG)So there you have it! Isn’t Riley adorable?
