Home Our Pet Experts Riley the Golden’s Instagram Is the Perfect Cure for the Winter Blues by Laura Cross Published on January 10, 2014 Facebook Twitter Email Print Skip To 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.
