While Mom’s Away…Riley Will PLAY!

So before I get to my next post about the BlogPaws conference, I thought I’d do a post about what Riley did while I was gone.  Riley stayed home with Grandma, Grandpa, and Chloe…and Baby Bailey stayed with them the first two days since Uncle Jimmy goes into work really early (Grandma didn’t want to have to wake up early to go pick Bailey up from her house, so she just spent the night with Grandma and Grandpa).

First, let me say, excuse Grandma’s crappy camera!  She doesn’t quite know how to work it either, so I picked out the best pictures of the bunch…the ones that weren’t fuzzy or blurry.

Here is Riley looking longingly up at her rope toy that I put on top of the grill…since she’s had her back sprain two weeks ago, I haven’t let her play with it.  Obviously SHE thinks she needs to play outside!

Since she can’t have her rope toy, she had to settle on trying to pull up tree roots!

This looks like something that would come from our Newfie friends Sherman and Leroy!

Riley and Chloe decided they needed to play bitey face…except, Riley bites Chloe’s face and dumb Chloe bites Riley’s tags on her collar!  Umm, hello?!?

The start of zoomies!

Okay, Riley, Chloe’s telling you she’s done playing…do you get the hint??

This is our raised garden that we put in a few weeks ago.  Riley and Chloe both can’t resist staying out of it!  Grandpa is going to put some chicken wire around it, but who knows when…!  So far, we’ve found three plants dug up and scattered in the yard–RILEY!!!

Riley was most interested in the watering of the garden.

 

Riley REALLY wanted Grandpa to throw something…ANYTHING…for her to chase in the yard!  She’s so bored without toys outside.

Here she’s trying to give him a two inch-long scrap of a stick…ain’t gonna work!

Passed out.

“Me, muddy?  Noooo!”
And, finally, because Grandma seems to have a real talent for snapping pictures while dogs are peeing…I include these two gems:

 Now you all know that Riley’s bladder is healthy and that she’s housebroken…
And here’s Chloe finishing up peeing…Riley, you’re going to get pee on your nose!
Speaking of peeing and housebreaking…Grandma said Chloe peed in the house every single day I was gone!  (I was gone from Thursday through Sunday).
Funny story about bad Chloe peeing in the house–we got her from the VA Beach SPCA when she was about a year old.  The first day we brought her home, we sat down to dinner and prayed.  During prayer, she peed on our floor!  We look back on that now and say that should have been a sign that we should have taken her back!!  Haha!  She gets bladder infections a lot and it makes her pee in the house…although, she also does it when her bladder is perfectly healthy!  She also has her favorite indoor pooping spot which just happens to be upstairs in my room in front of my dresser!  We always say she’s doing it because she’s mad I brought bad Riley to live with her four years ago.
Anyway, so I think Grandpa is going to try to take Chloe to the vet some time this week to get her urine checked.  Good thing we just got a new Bissell SpotBot Pet!  We had the older version for several years and used it so much that it kind of fell apart on us.  So the week before I left for BlogPaws, we bought the newer version off of Amazon.  The Bissell people were at a booth at BlogPaws and on Saturday afternoon, they gave a SpotBot Pet away.  I said, “With my luck, I would win it…since we JUST bought a new one!”  Who was I kidding, I didn’t win jack squat at BlogPaws!
So that’s what Riley was up to while I was gone…doesn’t look like she missed me…AT ALL!  Stay tuned for more posts about the BlogPaws Conference!

  1. I think Riley was really looking at the grill in that first shot, hoping for a steak. And you might just try laying chicken wire over the top of the dirt before the plants grow. Dogs can't dig through chicken wire. It keeps my chickens from scratching out the dirt, too.www.dogtreatweb.com

  3. LOL we think Riley was fine. All those zoomies and the raised garden planting bed, dog heaven. When you said Riley wanted Grand Pa to throw something and the next pic was him and Baby Bailey we did chuckle. Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly.

  5. Lol – so glad Grandpa didn't chuck Bailey out in the yard for Riley to fetch! I had to fence off my garden too – dogs just cannot resist all those garden-y smells, ya know?! Who can blame them? Glad you made it back safe and can't wait to hear more about it!

  7. Looks like Riley had as much fun at Camp Grandma/Grandpa's as Bella did at Camp Nana's! Love all the pictures.But can I just say, I can't believe we were sitting at the same table Saturday night and never formally introduced!?!?! Oh the missed opportunity! Next time, I promise because our pups have mucho in common.

  9. Glad to see that Riley was well taken care of in your absence! Of course that raised garden would be exciting to get in and dig. We use chicken wire for garden fencing and imagine my surprise the first time the blind dogs went over it. Looking forward to hearing about Blog Paws!

Riley loves hearing from her friends!
