Riley, the "Angel Dog"

No worries, Riley has not died or anything…I’m calling her the “angel dog” because her aunt, Chloe, is being “Lucifur, the devil dog” while she’s on crate rest and Riley’s been soooo good throughout this two week ordeal.  Hopefully today is the last day of crate rest.  Chloe’s follow-up appointment and staple removal is tomorrow at 8:45 AM and we’re hoping that she gets cleared to stay out of the crate, climb stairs, jump on the furniture, and can run around like a dog again.

We have been giving Chloe “Busy Bones” while she’s in the crate and she hasn’t touched them…we gave her a stuffed Kong today and she didn’t touch it either.  Then she had the nerve to go into the crate and get it out while she was tethered to the table during dinner.  It kept her occupied during dinner, so I guess that’s one good thing that came out of it!

I have no pictures of Chloe today, just of Riley.  We’re banished upstairs to my bedroom and Chloe is on the couch with my mom.

Lying in the sunshine…which actually surprises me because usually she likes to lie in the shade because she gets too hot when she’s lying in the sunshine.  I guess since we’re inside with the fan on and it’s not very hot outside she can handle it.

I have the blinds to one of my windows open so she can still keep watch of the cul-de-sac and she has been enjoying that.

She was actually lying up on my stomach and I had to put the camera right up to my face (touching it) to even get most of her head in the shot.  This girl LOVES her mama!
Riley’s been fine with having to stay upstairs.  She’s happy doing anything (or not doing anything) as long as she’s with me.  She’ll just sleep on the bed the whole day with me as long as that’s where I am.

  5. Ours will lay in the sunshine, too, almost to the point where I think they must be roasting, but they seem to love it. It's one of those mysteries we'll never understand, I guess!

Hmmmm, will Riley ever want to be off that bed again? ;-)When Mom saw your post title on her phone, her heart skipped a beat, glad it was just Riley being an Earth Angel:)We think Chloe was making a huge statement by refusing to eat those tasty treats in the crate.Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  13. Riley, it's awfully nice of you to be such a wonderful dog. I'm sure it helps bunches, given the situation. Hopefully Chloe will be off restriction soon.
