Riley


Hello, my dear blogging friends.  I am so sad to be posting this, with tears in my eyes,  but I want to let you know that our beloved Riley has died.  He died on Thursday, May 2.  We had his wonderful presence for 12 years and loved him dearly.  You can't imagine how much I miss him.  

He was a good companion, he made us laugh, he was friendly and obedient and was always by his brother's (Otis) side.  They were inseparable.  Otis misses him.  

We will now cherish the wonderful memories of him in our hearts, always.  
I love you, little Riley.  
I love you and miss you.  
You will be forever in my heart.

Oh Donna, I am so very sorry. I can imagine what a huge loss this is to you, Galen and Otis. Gentle hugs all around.

Oh dang it. That's rough. Hope this helps:

He will always be in my heart too, Donna---he was my little Badger incarnate---hugs to you and Galen and sweet little Otis.

I can only imagine how lonely Otis must be. We lost our little Schatzie last year and we still miss her every day.
Hugs to all of you.

Donna said...

I'm so sorry Donna. My heart breaks for you and for Otis too. Our pets are our family members and it certainly is a hard thing when we lose them. My thoughts are with you.

Take care.

Riley is chasing butterflies on the other side of the rainbow bridge. It is so hard to lose a part of your heart.

Donna I'm so sorry to hear about Riley. Our dachshund is 16 now and I know we're lucky for each day we continue to have her here. I had purchased one of your dachshund pictures a while back since it looks so much like our Molly and I feel I'll always have a bit of her around that way.

Hugs to you (and Otis),
Chris

I love you, mom. I'm hoping you're okay. You gave Riley such a wonderful life; I think of him happily running in the park and his ears flapping in the wind when he went for car rides. And how playful he was with his stuffed toys (that he would "unstuff" and carry around the garden.) He was lucky to have you and he's still smiling. Love you, love you, love you. --Amy
