A year in the life of our Miss Riley

Words of Power

on April 10, 2015

All animal caretakers know about words of power. Say “walk” or “out” to a dog and their ears perk up. For our dogs, it was “out” and “play,” and even the spelled-out versions of those words, but also, especially for Riley, the phrase “feed the puppy” means something good is going to happen. Today, she was sound asleep when I crept across the floor to her, and asked softly, “Is it time to feed the puppy?”

Oh yes, it was.

"Yeah, I could eat."

“What?! Yeah, I could eat.”

    Oh yes, those words! We used to have to spell out “w-a-l-k” to Millie our she’d just about tear the leash off the wall! Riley’s ready to eat! Have a great weekend, 🙂
