A year in the life of our Miss Riley

Pill Time!

on September 29, 2014

Riley was asleep in the den when I got up to take care of the dinner dishes. Then I pulled out her pills — the rattle of the bottles brought her right into the kitchen!

One of the reasons I’ve always counted myself lucky when it comes to Riley is she’s one dog who actually likes taking pills. I don’t have to wrap them in cheese or slather them in peanut butter (of course, she’d love it if I did!) — all I have to do is pop open her mouth and down the hatch. She will even remind us that it’s pill time — she was even more on track with pill time when she was on antibiotics, coming to us and barking when it was time for the next dose.

For those of you who are now writhing in envy over what a smart, perfect dog we have: if it makes you feel better, according to my husband, she did poo on the floor this morning.
