A year in the life of our Miss Riley

Order Restored?

on February 6, 2015

Sort of. Early today, Riley settled into her accustomed space in my office — her first time since her accident in the same spot the other day. But when I got her up to go out, she experienced a moment of floor panic — sliding on the wood and tile and freaking out — so she didn’t want to go back to the office when we came back in. I got her settled in the living room, but she was deeply unhappy to be there while I was in my office.

Have laptop, will travel — I went to the living room with her.

Have I mentioned Riley’s a wee bit spoiled?

    That sounds like my lab. His joints got so creaky he started having a lot of issues coordinating walking across the wood floor. Same sort of sliding and freaking out reaction.

    No, he curled his back toes under, though, and so when he walked he dragged the tops of them.

    I have a rubber backed carpet runner we got at Home Depot. It might help her walking over that foyer tile. I can bring it over tomorrow of you want it.

    Nice to spoil someone who cares so much about you………….we just went away for one night on Jane’s birthday ( Terrance McNally Play in Center City, Bliss Restaurant and a great Hotel ) and our cats greeted us at the door when we returned as if we had been away for a month. Keep spoiling Riley and she will spoil you back
