Riley... a memorial of sorts by alphamalezulu4 Riley... a memorial of sorts by alphamalezulu4
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.

Yeah I still think about him constantly. I love him so much and although I have a new dog to fill a small void, it doesn't replace him obviously wasn't meant to. But I still miss and wish I could see him again by my side like he used to be all the time. :hugs: I'm sorry for your loss hon. Rainbow Bridge. We'll see them both there one day.

I don't remember who told me to read it but I started bawling. What made me calm down was the day after this happened, my Mom told me of a dream she had, of Riley standing on this hill top with the wind blowing in his face. He was smiling and looking at her, as tho he was saying "I'm OK and I'm going to be alright and have some fun." After a little bit, he turned and disappeared. It's funny you should comment on this when you did. Yesterday I was really really depressed and I was thinking about him all day.

I really miss him. People don't understand just how much of an impact and how important he is to me. Honestly, I want him back. One way or another however, I want to be with him again as soon as possible. I'm not entirely happy with him not around.

All I can believe is he'll be waiting for me at that bridge when I show up. :lonely:
