Today sucked. I mean on an epic scale. Thats how bad it sucked. Saying goodbye to sick animals, SURE. That still sucks but saying goodbye to your first dog that you and your husband have had together while your husband is deployed... seriously, I can't think of anything that sucks more at this point. As much as Riley drove me crazy, I will miss him a great deal. Came home tonight after an obviously much needed night out after the day I've had and almost fell apart when I didnt get that tail thumping in a crate excited annoy mommy cuz she's home and we missed her whine. Shasta did her usual hello of MOM MOM MOM MOM MOM MOM.... Hi mom! but no Riley. There's always been Riley. It's going to be strangely quiet around here from now on. If he'd been mentally healthy this never would have happened. He would have left us from old age instead of slowly going crazy in front of us. Don't know what I'm going to do with his collar and leash. His collar is HIS collar and has his name engraved on it but thats not the point. I'd never reuse a collar on another dog like that. It was HIS collar. It'll never belong to anyone else. Maybe when I get his ashes back, I'll wrap his collar around the urn. I think that would work nicely. Miss my big barking idiot. Didnt always like him but you know you'll always love them.
