Sadness

has settled over the Sands household as we had to say goodbye to Riley.  Pets bring hours of joy and entertainment.  They provide companionship and unconditional love.  They bring so much happiness to our lives, but saying goodbye is always so difficult.  Matthew and I still talk about the day we picked Riley up and how stinkin’ cute he was.

Riley was a frisky little dog with endless energy!  He loved to chase rabbits and make a mess.  We could count on him to be rocking while he waited for us to come home.  He expected to be petted whenever someone when in or out of the house.  He cleaned up all the leftovers and never quite knew what to think of the pool.  He would go a little crazy when let out in the mornings and HaTeD getting a bath.  He was a wonderful pet and will forever be missed.  Riley was a part of our family and we learned a lot from him…

Riley you taught us...
You should always keep a look out…

Sometimes you have to put people in their place…

Once in awhile you have to offer hints…


Stay on top of things…

Sometimes you have to stay in the background…IMG_5308

Sometimes you have to cut loose…

When you make a mess of things, own it!

Sometimes you need to just stop, stretch out and take a break…

Sometimes you need to stick your tongue out at the world…

Sometimes you just need to be there…

Other times people just need a little laugh…

We will remember all the love and laughs you gave us Riley!
