A year in the life of our Miss Riley

Oh, the Indignity!

Miss Riley got her nails trimmed today. This is an activity she most emphatically Does Not Like. If there are any Penguins of Madagascar fans out there, Riley is totally King Julien when it comes to her feet.

I don’t know how this happened; she used to be pretty good about getting her nails trimmed. Then Xander came along and it took both of us to hold him down to trim his nails, so maybe Miss Smartypants realized then that she didn’t have to lie back and think of England. Whatever spurred it on, now my husband has to hide the clippers and act like everything is normal before pinning her down. She endures it, but if looks could kill…
