Riley’s birthday

I’m celebrating Riley’s 15th birthday without him. He isn’t here …. except in my Facebook memories, as my screensaver, the picture on my refrigerator, in my heart, and the tears rolling down my cheeks. This picture was part of a charity event at a shelter. I didn’t normally dress him up but I recently came across this picture and to me it says, “I’m ready for a party!” 🎁🎂❤️ Love you little man.

Missing Riley

“The price we pay for love”

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.
