A year in the life of our Miss Riley

The Bovine Canine

I know dogs occasionally get the urge to eat grass, but Riley’s urges always come completely out of the blue and border on obsession. Case in point, today she slept most of the day (so did I, home with migraine rather than working from home). Took her out in the afternoon and she was fine. About an hour later, she’s at the back door doing the “urgent, out!” bark, but when I rushed to let her out, she headed right for the grass and wouldn’t let up.

Since eating grass usually heralds vomiting, I shut her in the laundry room for a while. She definitely wasn’t pleased with that, but put up with it for about 30 minutes. Then she came a couple imperious yips — Princess Miss Riley had spoken. I let her out and she’s been fine ever since (*raponwood*). Maybe she just wanted a salad.
