Good bye old friend

I have often said that a good dog is a loving child that just doesnt grow up. It is forever totally dependent upon you and returns unparalleled love in return. Well tonight we are finding out that for the forth time we are at the end of a great life for yet another wonderful Golden Retreiver, Riley. They may never grow up but their life is far too short and finite. Riley was a great familly member who was game to go everywhere we went. the cottage hunting chipmunks, to camping with his brother Eddie, Riley was the best.
In my short experiance with our Airstream and camping, I have noted the strong correlationship of campers and dogs. As such I wanted to reach out to folks with dogs, or any pet and remind them to appreciate them when you can. Their time in our lives is a wink of an eye, but an eye and mind opening time well shared.
Good buy, my dear old friend.

After many decades of pet ownership and loss, your observation holds true. Take heart, there is another good buddy just over the horizon if you so choose.

They are here for such a short time but give us their whole life and devotion. I hug and love my Sophie every day. May you keep his memory alive and in your heart as with all that have passed on before Him.

I'm so sorry for your loss. We had 2 Golden Retrievers, brother & sister, & I still miss them. Dogs are just great friends, companions, & family.
