The Life of Riley

We received the sad news on Sunday that our close friend Riley passed away that morning. Actually, Riley was more a friend of older bros Tsamba and Buko, so we feel their losses again, too. Riley and Buko were adopted from the same SPCA and were obedience trial buddies way back when. They used to commiserate over their ridiculous humans who could never get it quite right. Riley and Buko could never understand what was wrong with just staying home and hanging out on the couch (which is not to say they didn't earn their share of ribbons).

Here's Riley with his brothers Bullet and Solo.

We'll miss you, buddy. Run free.

RIP, Riley. I hope that it's exciting up on the Bridge seeing your old friends and watching bones & balls rain from the sky.

Your pal,
Fenway

PS: A cattle dog named Babe moved into my neighborhood. I think I'm in love...she has angel eyes, too.
