I streamed the first State of the State address given by Gov. Doug Ducey. In general, it was a very vanilla kick off to the new session. Rhetoric on taxes, education and administrative agenda; all intended to guide the Legislature on where to focus their bill-making powers.

At 5 years old, Riley the Terrier Mix has grown into a well-mannered gentleman. This sweet, mellow, friendly guy has an honest face you can read like a book. Scratch his ears and the adoring look on Riley’s face will make you blush. Give Riley the belly rubs he enjoys so much and you’ll witness a dog turning into putty right before your eyes. Riley is an incredibly snuggly dog — all he wants in life is to be as close to his people. He likes being held, hugged, and kissed and will return the favor. He loves to curl up in the curve of your stomach to snuggle. Riley likes sitting on your lap. He enjoys outings with his people and rides well in the car. Riley would also be more than satisfied with a 20-minute daily walk. He walks great on a leash as long as you don’t mind giving him opportunities to roll around on the grass.
