Remembering Riley

My Teddy Bear Faced Baby

My Teddy Bear Faced Baby

You passed away November 14 2016 at 3pm on a Monday. I knew we were on borrowed time but had hoped that your health might turn for the better. I got the call I was dreading, and raced home as quickly as I could, but it was too late.

Almost eleven years gone in the blink of an eye and now an eternity of heartache, loss and longing. I used to love Mondays, start of a new week, new prospect, challenges and perhaps even friendships but now it seems that every Monday is met with a sense of dread and emptiness.

Coming home isn't any better. My little Riley-poo is no longer there to greet me with such excitement and happiness. Mama didn't have time to take her shoes off and sit down on the floor for the endless kisses and belly rubbing. What I would give for just one more day like that.

For a small little pup, you were such a big part of our family. Our world revolved around you, your schedule, your needs. Now everything I do, every room I walk into, reminds me of you, and the tears start once again.

I know that in time my heart will mend but it will NEVER be whole again. I will miss you forever, my little baby, and forever is not enough.

Riley ... you have left my life but you will NEVER leave my heart. I Love You!
