Tuesday Things from Rio

Tuesday things!

The cutest thing happened this morning. It was one of those ‘proud mama’ moments. I tend to have a few of those, along with a few face-palms (Lola eating half of a pack of gum) every week, haha.

As usual, we set Rio’s food down in front of him and tell him to “stay” or “wait” until we give him the signal by saying, “okay” for him to eat/inhale his food.

Well this morning in the hustle and bustle of everything, I set Rio’s food down…proceeded to fill the coffee pot with water, add the coffee filter and grounds, shuffle through some mail on the counter when Antonio taps me on the shoulder and signals towards Rio. Here he is, sitting. Waiting. Patiently. Head bowed, just staring at his food waiting for the magical words, “OKAY!” to come out of my mouth. What a good boy, Rio!

Rio Shaking - @lolathepittyFast forward 12 hours…here we are in the living room, we were planning on doing a little Christmas photo shoot in their sweaters that Amaya bought them.

“Mom! My sweater definitely doesn’t fit….”

Rio - outgrew his sweater! @lolathepitty

Instead, let’s just take some pictures. Or try to. Rio is not the most cooperative when taking photos. He must be a little camera shy. Lola on the other hand – easy peasy.

Here are a few outtakes of the Christmas sweater photos – sans Christmas sweater:

Overall, Rio is doing awesome since his leg surgery which was just five weeks ago (three more weeks of recovery to go)!  I can’t wait to see our baby RUN again – we’ll be sure to keep everyone posted and share another video of him soon!

Shine ON!

Meet Rio

This is Rio! Formerly “Leo” from Save-a-Bull rescue in Minnesota.

Rio was a “Craigslist puppy” who was pulled off of the site thanks to the wonderful people at the rescue. I don’t think I need to go into details about the horrific things that have happened from dogs listed on Craigslist…just glad he’s home with us now!

Rio is truly a great puppy! Smart, willing, and the perfect energy level. We won’t go into that with Lola, haha. Let’s just say her battery never died and it was basically like trying to contain a 10 lb tornado.

Here are the rescue photos of him, thanks to Angela Boone Photography.

What a cute little stinker.

Here was his “I’ve been adopted” post on Facebook!

These were pictures we took when Lola played with Rio for the second time…

Lola was doing her classic ‘stalk and pounce’ move, so he found a great place to hide!
