A Night With Grandpa!

My birthday is next Tuesday (June 7th) and my mom’s (Riley’s Grandma’s) birthday is the next Tuesday, June 14th.  My sister (Riley’s Aunt Baddy) started this “tradition” a few years ago where she likes for all of us girls to go stay at a hotel to celebrate our birthdays.  So we typically go to either Williamsburg, Chesapeake, or VA Beach in June for my mom and my birthdays and we always go to Richmond in October for Aunt Baddy’s birthday.

Tonight is our girls’ birthday trip and unfortunately, dogs aren’t allowed.  Sooo…Grandpa is going to take care of Riley while I’m gone.  So Riley will get to sleep in my parents’ room on their big bed with him and Chloe.  She’ll be super excited because they keep some good treats in their room!  πŸ™‚  Plus, she adores her Grandpa.

Hmm…who will be watching who?  This picture is of Riley watching Grandpa take a nap the other Sunday afternoon…creepy?  Yes.
Riley and I were supposed to visit the nursing home today, but I was up with some kind of stomach bug in the night (it seems to be better now) and I don’t want to go spread my germs to all of the residents.
Remember how Riley was so good when Chloe was on crate rest?  And how I didn’t just kill Chloe for driving me nuts all day long?  Well, as a thank you to me for taking care of Chloe after her surgery (and not removing her voice box…!), Grandma and Grandpa are paying for Riley to get some professional pictures taken by a local photographer.  So our session is on Monday at 11 AM and I’m excited to get some good shots of my girl!  I am being forced into one or two pictures with Riley (by Grandma and Grandpa), but it should be all good.  I’m packing all of her Therapy Dog gear and her different bandannas (one for each season!), and of course a squeaky Wubba to get her attention and some treats.  Oh yeah, and her BELOVED orange balls…gotta get a shot of her with her “babies!”
Hopefully I’ll get some great pics from our Birthday Trip tonight and tomorrow and I’ll be sure to post them up here!  Have a great weekend!!

  1. Neat! Your parents must be amazing! I think it would be frightening to take Riley and Remus to get pictures… I'll have to use your Riley as a role model!

  3. I found your blog off of Pet Blogs United and have to admit I am a little overwhelmed at the quality and quantity of the offering. I have recently started a blog devoted to pets. It is a little different in that what I do is search daily through 30 to 40 on line publications to find interesting articles related to pets in several areas. I try to post at least 6 to 8 per day with a description of the article and link to it. If you visit the site you will see a several day sampling of it and a statement at http://www.bestpetblog.blogspot.com he beginning of what I hope to do. If you would care to look and let me know I would be honored. Thank You
