A year in the life of our Miss Riley

One Year

on July 22, 2016

 

I can’t believe it’s been a year. In some ways, it feels like a long time ago, and in others, like yesterday. I miss you, my Riley puppy-girl. I miss booping your nose, watching you root in my garden and tear up wrapping paper in a frenzy, snuggling with you, laughing with you…just all the things that made you Princess Miss Riley.

Facebook and their On This Day feature is a mixed blessing. Every day, I’d get to see photos of Riley and Xander…but when they started showing me photos and status posts from when the dogs were in decline, I tried the option to hide certain dates. It worked for a while, then last night my “share this memory” reminded me that 4 years ago, Xander was diagnosed with cancer, and then the first thing I saw today was the last photo I ever took of Riley. It’s like Facebook wants me to be depressed! Still, having Riley show up in photos every day this year was nice, for the most part.

BTW, if you want to see Riley in action rooting through my lilies (a favorite activity of hers, though I never figured out why), click here. (I think this should work!)
