Tears on my pillow....

Dear Riley:

You were one of the best dogs God ever created. You loved everybody, human or creature. You were so, so sweet and so funny, and sometime so stubborn. You did not deserve to die so young. You were only three, and such a sweet, gentle soul. I am so glad I picked you at the shelter. You were a real keeper. You blessed us with your unconditional love, sweet devotion and gentle spirit for three years. God bless you and your sweet, kind soul. I'll never forget your loving, big brown eyes, and how you would lay your head on my shoulder for some loving. I'll never forget you and you will be forever missed.

Your mom, Pattie

You were the cutest puppy!

You loved to jump up and give big hugs!


  1. I am so sorry Pattie from 1 dog lover to another. I know how much it hurts.

  2. These fury members of our family are so loved. You made Riley's short life happy.
    Take care-I'm sorry for your sadness.

  3. I am so sad for you Pattie! You are in my prayers tonight. xxo

  4. My heart is so broken for you and your family Pattie... Sending lot of hugs your way!!

  5. I am so sorry for you loss Pattie, you are in my prayers.

  6. My heart is broken for you as well. I can hear the pain through your words. He was lucky to have you as his Mom. Hugs to you.

  7. Dear Pattie,
    I am one of your blog (stalkers.) Read your posts every day that you enter one and feel like I know you. I am a huge dog lover. My hubby and I love our four legged girls more than most people. We lost three dogs within 8 short months so my heart is hurting right along with you right now. I know how it feels oh too well. We lost our last one at only barely two years old. She was fine one day and then had horrible diarrhea that never reconciled itself. We had her to our vet weekly. If we weren't at her office we were on the phone with her. We tried everything humanly possible. Emergency surgery was a last resort. She had something terribly wrong with her colon that was unrepairable. The vet said it was something that she was born with. Not our fault at all but you always think that maybe we could have done something more. Anyway, just wanted for you to know that I truly believe that God gave Riley to your family because He knew that even though his life would be short, he would have the best life ever with you because you loved him SO much. God Bless you Pattie and your family. You will be in my prayers.
    *Big Hugs*
