Rylee’s family sent us some updated pictures, along with this nice update:
So I am sending you an update on my my beautiful baby Rylee. She is still the utmost amazing young woman! Still defiant and full of charm. Very very smart and knows it too but her temperament is so amazing. When she gets growled at or barked at from another dog, she comes running to me or shies away if she doesn’t see me right away. She loves to run and play… 3 hours before I took her home! Lol
If I have to leave town for an extended period of time she goes and stays with my mom and dad who just love her (and yes call to have me put them on speaker phone so Rylee can hear my Dad).
She has been spayed and they did such a great job you can’t see any mark on her at all. She is such a happy puppy but if she doesn’t get her walk or run… All hell breaks loose and she will wait until I put my head down to sleep and then grab something with in reach wait exactly 2 minutes of staring at me… Then start chewing. Yes I have taken her at 330 am for a walk as I should have done it earlier. Lol
She does have me wrapped around her finger.
Her first contact with a baby she sniffed it’s feet grabbed a toy and put it near the baby and then wouldn’t move for the remainder of the night. Licking the feet every so often. She is 72 pounds… Yup and the vet thinks she will get bigger.
I have her on a raw diet and it seemed to calm her down. She is on perfectly raw. Chicken and turkey and sometimes bison/elk/ rabbit when I can afford it ( she hates fish btw). Just thought I’d give you an update since it has been a while.
I’m considering looking for another puppy as Rylee is looking for a play mate. Needs one really. But I do not make as much money as I did up north. What do you think about that? Is it wise? Do you have one that might work well for her?
By the way her legs are silver on the front and in the winter time she gets black on her back.

This is Rylee, one of Hannah’s pups that went to Calgary. When her owners sent us the video above, they also wrote:
Update on Rylee.
When we got home I opened her kennel door and laid outside it till she wondered out. She wondered the house then came and laid in front of me letting me pet her. She has an amazing temperament, very very smart. Mastered stairs and a treat ball (see the video I sent along) as soon as she was presented with them. I have high suspicions that she chewed my kitchen chair…. Yet can’t prove it… If only the chair could talk….
She loves yams.( I made her yam and honey cookies) which I also love….
She will have nothing to do with her leash but will walk with me out side watching me as we walk. Not going far from me. (We are working on leash skills) She comes most times when called and waits patiently to come out of her play pen.
I am free feeding her and she has no accidents in her playpen, but reminded me that my first job when I get home is to take her right outside even if my bladder is about to burst….
She is very quiet. Doesn’t beg. Really isn’t food motivated. But listens and loves praise. She barks when she plays hops and rolls. And is starting to fetch. She will go get the ball and brings it back about 40% of the time.
When I give her a kiss I tell her I kiss her she doesn’t kiss me… So she takes her nose and puts it on my cheek.
