A year in the life of our Miss Riley

August 2, 2014: 14th Birthday

Today is Riley’s 14th birthday. She’s a lot slower than she used to be, but has pretty much the same zest for life she had as a puppy.¬†One of her favorite things to do is go fishing around in my lilies (this year also a hybrid mint patch). She doesn’t dig, per se, she just roots around enough to get down to the ground and get in a good sniff, ripping down stalks as she goes. Who knows what she finds down there, but she sure seems to like it.
