Two dogs, @riley_thecockapoo and @riley.pup, both joined Instagram in the Fall of 2015 and become fast friends over their shared name and love of pizza. Riley and Riley wanted to take their online relationship to the next level for Valentine’s Day 2016 and decided it was time for their moms, Mariana and Allison, to get acquainted too.
Following their “Meet the Parents” moment, the Riley’s had a series of virtual dates since @riley_thecockapoo lives in Ontario, Canada and @riley.pup lives in Washington, DC. They even exchanged some dog-approved holiday and birthday gifts through the mail.
Riley and Riley have now been besties for over 2.5 years and wanted to share 5 fun facts about their friendship.
@riley_thecockapoo’s parents bought us the same TMNT t-shirt, and @riley.pup’s mom got us awesome Ninja Turtle bandanas as gifts. What can we say, the Riley’s are two stylish dogs.
We love to eat popcorn during TGIT and can’t believe that there aren’t more dog doctors and pup gladiators on these shows.
Like a typical dood, @riley.pup fell asleep during one of the dates! He made up for it by sending a giftof treats and a squeaky donut.
4. We hosted a "Pups Love Spring" photo contest on Instagram and met so many new dog friends.
Who doesn't love Spring?
5. It's not just a Riley thing, but we're both addicted to stuffed animals.
@riley_thecockapoo’s favorite friends are Mr. Bear and Panda, and @riley.pup can’t sleep without Bun Bun and his monkey.
These are just some of our greatest moments, and we’re looking forward to many more. Our parents even said that we may get to meet in real life this year!
