Riley came to us by way of our son and daughter-in-law. They adopted him from a Sacramento, Ca. animal shelter. He had been found in a sorry condition wandering in downtown Sacramento. He had been badly abused with rifle pellets in his back leg and ear. He suffered the results of a broken front leg that had never been set. After being brought to the shelter, he was given the name "Tex"----important to remember. Lisa and Kevin adopted him as our son had been raised with Irish Setters and "Tex" was an Irish/Golden Retriever mix. They renamed him Riley. When our beloved Lab died a year later, Kevin asked if we would like Riley as he and Lisa both now worked and couldn't give him the attention they felt he needed. We emphatically said YES. Kevin and Riley made the long drive to our home, and now, six years later, we ;feel very lucky to have such a good and loving dog. And where does our California Tex now call home---- where else but Texas.
