A year in the life of our Miss Riley

August 2, 2014: Fortune Cookies

on August 3, 2014

There is nothing in the world Riley likes more than fortune cookies. As a puppy, she’d snatch them out of our hands if we weren’t careful — so we starting giving her ours. She knows when we bring home Chinese food that there is a fortune cookie in her future.

Of the fortune cookies she’s had over the years, none were more prophetic than this, her very first “solo” cookie:


It was so funny at the time that we saved it. And here she is at 14, still enjoying fortune cookies.

I gave her one tonight for her birthday. She gobbled it up so fast I didn’t get much of a photo. Here she is, scouring the kitchen floor for crumbs:


So today Riley got to poke around in my flowers AND have a fortune cookie. Not a bad day, not a bad day at all.

    Happy Birthday to the Pup! Jane often brings me treats after one of her outings the world of humans. Sometimes she lets me go out to poke in the flowers too…she feels more confident about this ever since she had that chip implanted in my neck that can be scanned so they know what address to return me to should I wander off…(John)

    John, chipping you was probably the best thing Jane did — after marrying you, of course. 😉
