A year in the life of our Miss Riley

Return of an Old Habit

on October 22, 2014

A welcome return, really — one that made my day.

Riley and Xander both had the common perception of their humans having a secret door in the bathroom by which we could slip away from them. They totally didn’t get the whole concept of a bathroom door to begin with — after all, we watched them do their business, why not the reverse? Xander used to power through the door before it could click shut. Riley, on the other hand, was infinitely more patient, and would park herself outside the bathroom. Like Sheldon Cooper, she had a spot, and the carpet bore an imprint of her frame.

But it’s been at least a year since she’s held vigil at the bathroom door. I don’t know why she stopped; she just did. So imagine my surprise this morning when I was getting ready for work. I heard a thump, and I stuck my head out into the hall to see what it was, and lo and behold, there she was, laying down outside the door.

I was so happy, I had to make it her Picture of the Day.
