Riley 1999 - 2011

We are very sad to announce that our sweet boy, Riley, has crossed the rainbow bridge and is now playing with Cooper and watching over us from on high. Riley was a fantastic dog who loved his family ... almost as much as he loved peanut butter. We were incredibly lucky to have had him as part of our family for almost 12 years. Eric and I have found comfort over the past few days thinking back on the tender and funny stories that involved Riley. We find ourselves waiting for him to come around the corner at any moment and feel and emotional sting when we remember he isn't here any longer. His old body just couldn't take any more and he told us it was time to go; as hard as it was, we had to let him.

Riley, we miss you so much, old man. Thank you for all of your companionship, funny antics, and unwaivering loyalty.

Sorry to hear about Riley - I'm sure he's chasing his tail in the hereafter!
