Riley's Summer Vacation Pictures

So, we just came back from two weeks of camping through North Western Washington State and the BC Okanagan area. Had a great time, and Riley thoroughly enjoyed himself as well.

A hike we did near Lake Wenatchee UP to a beautiful mountain lake.

Last ones .

Modelling his new "cooling" bandana. It actually did seem to make him more comfy on those super hot days (we hit 106F a few days).

Hehe, you are right about looking like a bear . I get that so often that I try to keep a bright collar on him cause he is always freaking people out when we are hiking on the local mountains.

I thought the exact same thing . Is he ever big and beefy !

Did you have as good of a time as Riley did? The thing I don't like about camping is going home :sad:.

I like the "lake monster" one best. Just makes me want to plant a kiss on his snout .

He sure is a gorgeous boy! I especially like the bandana shot...such a striking portrait!

He does look like he enjoyed his vacation. Was he disappointed to get home?

Yep, he gets to stay off leash most times when we are hiking or swimming. When we had him in swimming near more busy areas we kept a 30ft line on him just in case.

I don't think so, he was very mellow and kinda tired for the first few days back. My mom brought back Lucy and Sam came as well and poor Sam was trying to get Riley to play but he just wanted to relax and hang out .
