“The price we pay for love”
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.

Thanks Cynthia! And thank you for the quote.
They are part of who we are, and the truly unconditional love that you talk about is a feeling that can pick us up out of any funk we are might be in…Doggie love. Love reading your blog, keep at it.
Thanks! Yes, the unconditional love and enthusiasm of being near you never fails to make a dark day better and a great day brighter!

My first blogpost. Still missing Riley and considering the idea of another dog.
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.
