My [official] name is Riley Kujo. However, I also go by Kujo, Kuko, Kujings, Riles, Yo Dude, STOP! and many more. I was born in Lake Steven, WA on January 6th, 2015 also known as Three Kings Day in Puerto Rico. Did I mention I am Boricua? I met my parents for the first time on February 7th, 2015. My parents had already picked my name, but I certainly was the one who picked them. Just to make sure I would not be switched with another pup; my mother ran to the nearest pet store to buy me a collar. I had her in my paws!
I would say I am an international dog. Last winter, I traveled to Canada to play in the snow. We visited the Whistler Olympic Park; you know where the 2010 Winter Olympics Games took place. Like my parents, I am a daredevil. I love to meet people, rarely things scare me and I love to try new things. I even crossed the Capilano Suspension Bridge, a 460-ft. suspension bridge that is 230-ft. above a river, TWICE! Don’t get me wrong, I like the normal stuff too. You know, like walks, hiking, swimming (I LOOOOOOVE swimming), going on daytrips, going to wineries and breweries, and specially going to Zoom Room.
My parents took me to Zoom Room looking to learn how to teach me the basics. Like I mentioned before, I love attention and I could be a little bit of a handful. Obedience 1 was a long – sometimes uphill – journey; I struggled to be consistent in class and at home even though I knew the craft. Neither my parents nor Cheryl gave up on me, and thanks to their love and encouragement I am in Obedience 3 and Agility 3. Not bad, right?! My mom thinks that since I love people and their attention and cuddles that it would be awesome for me to learn how to be a therapy dog. That way I get the love and share the love. Win-win.
In conclusion, I have a very long name but call me Riley Kujo for short. Yes, my father named me after the movie but I am the opposite of Cujo. I am a bilingual black Labrador, with Puerto Rican roots. I love to travel and love treats (I give my pops the sad eyes and he falls for it every time). If you see me, don’t be a stranger. I would love to say hi! And if you have a treat I’ll say hi again, no questions asked.
