A year in the life of our Miss Riley

Zen Dog

on September 5, 2014

Today is one of those days I need to learn to be more like Riley. I was trying to work from home with chainsaws and wood chippers going outside. Though I had retreated to the kitchen with my laptop, I was still feeling on the edge of my sanity. Then I considered Riley: she was sitting calmly in the living room, super-close to all the noise, and was completely Zen. I took a few deep breaths and went back to work. With headphones.

Miss Riley, life coach.

    I know exactly how you felt about trying to work with all the noise — and then you noticed Riley, and learned a lesson. I learn that lesson almost every day when I get stressed out and then just happen to see our 3 cats or 2 dogs simply living in the moment. Animals are great teachers! Enjoyed your post!
