A year in the life of our Miss Riley

The Closet

on August 26, 2014

(Please don’t judge me for this disaster of a closet.)

This is a closet in our laundry room where we keep a lot of stray crap — plastic bags collected for recycling, re-usable bags, spare Cones of Shame, dog towels, blankets for dog travel — most people probably have a closet like this. One of the most important things we keep in it, at least from Miss Riley’s perspective, is dog toys.

Now, Riley hasn’t played with a toy in years, and barely shows passing interest in her favorites (plush pig and plush soccer ball) that we leave out all the time. But she knows this is where we stash the dog toys that aren’t in use, and even though she doesn’t play with them any more, she hasn’t forgotten that they’re there — and she is compelled to check on them. So whenever this closet is open, she shoves her way in to check things out.


There’s something interesting in here — I just know it!
