Thank you, everyone, for your blog comments, emails, and texts expressing your concern and offering advise for me in regards to Riley and his chocolate-eating escapade last evening.
I am happy to report that he is fine.
In fact, this morning, when he got up, the first thing he did was race into the guest bedroom, where he never goes. I wondered what he was up to, so quietly followed him. There he was, with his nose in the corner of the room, behind the door.. and guess what he was going after…. a piece of stashed See’s. I picked it up and carried it downstairs to the trash. He didn’t follow me.. which he usually does. When I came back upstairs, I found him in the corner of my office, going after another piece of his stash….This happened FIVE times. FIVE different rooms. Yes, folks, it’s true. I have a smart (and sneaky) dog. 😉 When I picked up one piece of candy, Riley waited until I was out of the room, then raced off to find his next stashed piece.
Once he realized that I had found all his stashed pieces, Riley was rather depressed. It didn’t help matters that I made him sit under the Christmas tree so I could get a picture of him so you will know that he is well. He doesn’t look too happy, does he? I think he is grumbling and thinking.. “Not only did I get caught, now I have to sit here for a silly picture! Next time I will just find better hiding places! ” (Notice the little chocolate stains around his mouth?)
Okay, enough about Riley for now! 🙂
