Missing Riley

“The price we pay for love”

IMG_0003                                                 Today marks the one year anniversary of losing my sweet Riley.

If you have ever been greeted with a tail wagging so hard, you feel like you should harness the energy as a renewable resource.

If you have had the affection and cuddles that only a canine can provide, you understand.                                                                                                                                             If you have ever talked to your dog and answered back for him, you understand.

If you still look for him when you wake up, or think you hear him even though you know he is gone, you understand.

If you’ve ever been lucky  enough to know what unconditional love feels like, you understand.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.

  1. I know very well your emotions. In memory of my beloved dog Liam I wrote and drawing a project called “the Dog and the Baby”. My English is poor and is difficult to explain you my feeling. I’m inviting you to read the post in my blog and maybe I can explain my nearness to you.

    The post is called “the Dog and the Baby” pdf in English version too.
    all my best, from Italy.
