I got another one 4 days after Riley passed due to severe health issues. Riley and I had a very special bond and I did not deal with his passing well or at all. My husband was very concerned about me and getting another puppy was mentioned. I was very taken aback by the thought of that. I had just lost a dog why would I want another one, but I warmed up to the idea. I went to look at puppies and came back with a 3 month old. He did not ease my pain or feeling of loss, but having another puppy helped me function again. He is a great dog and I love him, but the pain of losing Riley is still there's hard to explain, but that was my situation.

He will always be in my heart.
