On Christmas eve, our dog, Riley died. He was hit by a car and did not make it. I am thankful that he did not have to suffer in pain and he went quickly. Life was a little crazy at Christmas with a full house and a lot going on. It wasn't until everyone left and I started coming home to an empty house thatI really realized he was gone. I miss that d*%# dog. He had a good life and was such a great protector of us and our home.
Below is a photo of him as my navigator. He was king of the passenger seat.
Dog heaven is a better place with Riley there.
We have the image of him playing with the children who died in the Sandy Hook school shootings. Those kids got a great dog for Christmas. I am sure he was happy to play with them and they were happy to have him join them in heaven.
