Our boy is five years old! November 2 is the official date but I forgot to post...but today is really Perry's birthday. He is 5 plus a one on the other side.
We brought home a black and white puppy with a ring of silver around his eyes, and at nine months he was completely silver and white...and prancing around Sue Nelson's training ring doing all sorts of tricks. When he was ten months we brought home Daisy who remained black and white, and wow...the time has gone by so fast.
His initial name was Noa, but Sue thought it sounded too much like no and every time we called him he would think he was doing something wrong! LOL
Alana named him Riki Noa Wesley when she was seven years old...Riki means strength in Japanese, as Noa does in Hawaiian, and Wesley is from her stuffed animal coyote of the same name.
We have a few names for our birthday boy as well...Rick, Riki, Cardo, Riki Cardo, Riki Tiki Tavi, Tavi, Rikkers, Rickmeister, and a few more.

and the first one is Riki after running through the mud, his favorite thing to do in the world besides rolling in it. Or any other skunky thing he can find!
