A year in the life of our Miss Riley

In the Not-So-Still of the Night

on August 4, 2014

The hork. Every dog parent is familiar with the sound. That gurgling, gagging, gacking noise that wakes even the soundest sleeper in the dead of night when it’s their dog making the noise. Riley gifted me with this experience at 4 am today. I lucked out in that she didn’t have anything to bring up but a small amount of normal spit, but we still made the trip to the yard for grass-eating, then I kept her downstairs in the case of subsequent real vomiting (there wasn’t any, thankfully).

The net result? I’m exhausted and half brain-dead for work, and the canine princess snoozes blissfully in the den.

Sure, Riley gets to sleep...

Sure, Riley gets to sleep…

Next on my agenda now that my work day is over? Vacuum the house, since I think the root cause of the incident was the fact that she probably snorted some hair the wrong way, since we haven’t had time to vacuum it up for over a week. *facepalm*

It’s my bad, but I’m still jealous. In my next life, I want to be a dog.
