A year in the life of our Miss Riley

What’s This?

I have never been the sort who dressed up her dogs. I think I may have tried bandanas Riley’s first Christmas, but no reindeer ears or Santa hats, no Halloween costumes. Since I’m doing this photo project with Riley, I thought I’d see if she’d at least pose with something seasonal. So I got my Macy’s Snoopy, a gift from my dad when I was a kid, out of storage in the basement.

I set Snoopy down in the crook of Riley’s body. She couldn’t get up fast enough. She lay down across the room. I tried again with the same result. She did deign to nose at him a bit, though.


Maybe I’ll manage it yet.
