Naming Tribute For Riley


Riley was a “9/11″ puppy and on September 19, 2010 we very unexpectedly lost him. We are members of GRRR, but he was not a rescue dog. Riley was a gentle giant, who was always by your side waiting for a pat on the head or food (in case any would accidentally fall his way). He was full of life up to the moment he died, but he was never one to waste energy. If he and his brother would be playing catch, Riley would decide that running back and forth was a waste of his time. Rather he would trot out, sit, and wait for the ball to come to him. We have a yard full of squirrels that never interested him, but if a cat crossed his path, he was off. And on many of our walks he was indifferent to other dogs that we passed. He only cared just for the people, who would stop and pet him. We had hoped that he wold be around for many more years. Riley will be greatly missed. Jane, John & Emily
