A year in the life of our Miss Riley

You Have FOOD, Don’t You?

on February 24, 2015

Riley has an unbeatable instinct for food. If she’s sound asleep when you get up to go to the kitchen, by the time you get there, she’s up, just in case food is in her immediate future. I’m sure she’s mostly deaf these days, but I swear she can hear the fridge door being opened from a room away.

Tonight, she was quite sure that I wanted to share my French macarons with her; she turned her nose towards me, and tried to get right up in my face — which made me decide to grab my camera with my other hand. As I was snapping her photo, she almost got her nose on the lemon one. Alas, macarons are the furthest thing from her current vet-approved diet — or even on her normal diet!

Big glowing eyes of persuasion were in vain.

  1. Such a sweet face. Reminds me so much of our Maggie. She use to try and sneak my cinnamon toast and lick my coffee mug! I think hearing, or lack of, does not matter when it comes to a pup and human food!

    If they are Vet approved, maybe Riley could have some of the Old Mother Hubbard cookies like you gave Pepper for Christmas. Pepper sure likes them.
