My Riley, my best friend!

My Riley, my best friend!

Riley is a 6 month old Cocker Spaniel Maltese mix and is a very playful puppy. We are still working on potty training but I do believe that we are almost there.!

He looks like a little teddy bear and when I sent pictures to my friends when I first got him they all thought he was a stuffed animal.

This is a very loving breed and very smart too!

Riley is a terrific dog. He is a happy Cocker Maltese mix and loves everyone and everything.

Doggy Beach is his favorite place and we go 3 or 4 times a week. Like all Maltese he won't go in the water except up to his knees. He can walk and play on the beach without a leash and he loves the other dogs and all the people there. After the beach he likes to go to Starbucks for a water and enjoys sitting out front and watching the people and traffic on main street.

He is even good friends with Puss the cat. Riley likes children and will stand patiently while they 'pet' him. My Cocker Spaniel Maltese minds well and is my constant companion when ever I'm not working - he's always at my side, never more than about 4 or 5 feet away at the most.

He loves to ride in "his" car a 1966 Olds 88 convertible. He only complains if we take a car with bucket seats - he likes a bench seat so he can ride in my lap or with his head out the window. He also seems to like riding in the basket on my bike when we ride by the beach. Riley was born October 20th 2006 and I got him Christmas eve 2006. Riley weighs about 19 pounds and is about 14" at the shoulder.

In the summer especially I have him trimmed about every 60 days. Riley is my best friend and just a terrific dog!

Here's a update on how our Cocker Maltese Mix Riley is doing.

Cocker Maltese Mix - Riley Update

Cocker Maltese Mix Riley Update

I was concerned that Riley was home alone all day when I'm at work. Because Riley seems to interact with other dogs so well when we go to the beach or the dog park I thought a friend might be good for him. I wanted a dog about his size and hoped the temperament would be even 1/2 as great as his. Riley is an easy going and loving dog. Well behaved and a great companion.

After interviewing several dogs we found a little gal named Princes who's owner was forced to give her up because he was being transferred back to Afghanistan. Princes was a 9 month old pure Cocker (Riley will be 3 this October 20). We invited her into the house and within a couple days she and my Cocker Maltese mix Riley became great friends. They play with each other a lot, Princes is just as well tempered and loving as Riley is.

Now both love to walk the beach - only difference is Princes will actually go in the water and romp around, while Riley is only happy if he only gets his feet wet. Both dogs get along great with all the other dogs and love any attention from people - especially kids.

Riley and I are still best "buds" but now I know he's not alone all day. Princes was a great addition to our pack.
