Almost 7 months + Nail Length

My baby is almost 7 months old! Only 3 days left... I can't believe how quickly she's growing up. She stayed at my sister's house over the weekend because the hubby and I were in a wedding. My sister's friend and her 15 month old baby are staying at her house and Riley did SO well with them! My sis said she gave lots of gentle kisses on the baby's face and hands and when it became a little overwhelming a simple "leave it" made her back off immediately. She never knocked the girl over or scared her in any way. I am SO proud of my girly! I came to pick her up on Sunday morning and the little baby was in her highchair eating grapes. Riley was standing on the back of the couch next to the chair staring intently at the grapes. We said "leave it" and she laid down and didn't even try to take one. :D Chelsea gave Ri a frozen yogurt in her bowl on the back of the couch and had the baby pet Ri's ear as she ate. Her tail wagged the entire time and she showed absolutely no signs of aggression. To top it all off, my sister said she was very well-behaved and followed all the commands they gave her. She enjoyed having Ri at the house so much that she didn't want me to leave with her! Needless to say, I am really looking forward to having children now that I know Ri does so well with them. :D

Okay, enough blabbering... here are some new pics from our park trip yesterday. I love how she is starting to fill out. She had another big growth spurt over the weekend.

I'm amazed at how far she can lean!


She really is filling in beautifully.

Looking less and less like a puppy every day!

Stick?!?

Say cheese!

One last pointing picture.

I also wanted to post some pictures of her nail length. A lot of other V owners have been asking me about what length I keep her nails at, so here are some pics that show her current nail length. I would prefer her front nails were a little shorter. We will be dremeling them this week. :)

Front nails... *almost* touching the ground.

Back nails... perfect length right now.

Front paw when not flexed.
