Riley was my foundation girl. She is out of some of the first English lines that my mom imported from Morning Valley Kennel in The Netherlands when she started making the switch from American to English pedigrees. I had Riley picked out as my pick from just a few weeks old. Starting at 6/7 weeks old I would have her separate from the litter spending most of the day with me. By 8 weeks old I had her already house trained and had started teaching her basic commands which she caught onto in no time. In fact, I taught her to sit, lay down, and roll over within a week... to the point where I told her to sit she would automatically lay down and roll over! After keeping a puppy from Riley, I had retired her and found her a wonderful home to be a companion/therapy dog for an older gentleman.
