A year in the life of our Miss Riley


on July 5, 2015

Riley sings us the song of her people as we prepare her food. Her new habit, which annoys the hell out of me, is to ecstatically hail the food prep, then walk away from the food itself. Tonight, my husband made her scrambled eggs for the first time in weeks and thankfully she ate it. AFTER we picked out all of the one type of kibble for her.

The life of a super-picky canine royal…

    I got lazy yesterday so instead of chopping her cooked chicken breast finely I threw a bunch of roughly cut bits into the handheld chopper. Minced meat mixes very well with kibble, spreading the stuff around so well that instead of spitting out the kibble and leaving it scattered around her dish, Stella ate everything in her bowl.
    Yes, she’s spoiled but she’s 16+ and will be spoiled forever.

      I’ve been feeding Riley by the literal spoonful — I’ll put some canned on a spoon for her to lick off, then dredge each subsequent spoonful in kibble to get her to eat more. She seems to like using a spoon like a person. Which she totally is, in her mind.
