Gilded Puppy

The sun still shines golden on a black dog…

Sun Dog

Riley spends a little time basking before she leaves the back porch.

Summer Begins

Riley may not be crazy about the heat, but every now and then, she stops to soak up the sun all the same.

Beltane Basking

Happy May Day, everyone! Riley joined me in my sunporch office today to enjoy the sun. She paid no attention to the bluejays on the birdbath right outside the window, but when two deer trotted through the back woods, she went on high alert. Homestead safely defended.

Throwback Thursday: The Ides of March

An unusually sunny day — a sunporch day! — last March 15th.

Sunny Saturday

It was windier today than it was the entire month of March, but it was sunny and warm, so the whole pack took advantage of the sunporch — Riley included.

Sun Dog

It turned out to be a beautiful day today, and Princess Miss Riley went on walkabout to survey her land. She graciously let the two deer she spotted graze in her turf, but only after one heck of a staring contest.

Another Frame-worthy Moment

Windy but sunny and warm today, so when I got home from the office, I opened the sunporch so Riley and I could bask in the sunshine-y goodness. Which resulted in another photo that I plan to print out and frame.




December 4, 2014

A rare sunny day this week. Miss Riley seemed to really soak it in during her walk.

More Basking

After yesterday, the sun was very welcome today. Miss Riley headed out to the sunporch to bask in the warmth — she was quite the warm puppy when she came back in!
