This was a photo I took of my best friend in the world, Riley. This was a couple years back. We were testing the new camera at the time and he was tired of me taking photos of him. I got this one and it just hit me so hard on so many levels. He looks sad... he looks alone... he looks lonely. He had two friends all the time with him. And he always made sure to keep the peace whenever they started to get on one anothers nerves. He was the alpha male if I ever saw one.
He had such charisma and personality. he lived up to his name for sure. And he was always a joy to see as you walk through a room.
He died with family and those he loved and loved him back. He's now elsewhere... running in fields of gold and green, standing on hills with wind in his face, always on a new adventure with friends once long gone.
I will see you again my best friend, very very soon. And I will be able to be with you for so much longer and we can play together once again... I miss you Riley. I love you and I'll see you again very soon buddy. Like I said, I hope you're really enjoying being where you are and I can't wait to hug you again.
