It’s only January and we’ve had enough of the snow, sleet, freezing rain and polar vortexes of winter. One way to beat the dreaded winter doldrums is to live vicariously through @rileythegolden’s Instagram.

Riley the adorable Golden Retriever is always smiling, seems to have tons of equally adorable canine friends, and most importantly, lives in a place where it never snows: Oahu, Hawaii.

In almost every photo he’s posed in front of a gorgeous beach, glistening pool or breathtaking vista. Yes, we are just as envious of Riley's life in tropical paradise as you are.
