Hello Everyone, Silver here. I am writing this blog post because I just lost my best and most special friend, Riley.
I gave him a Christmas gift and his mum and dad just came over to say he died in a traffic accident just before Santa came.
He was rushed to the vet and was rallying but his heart gave out. Riley and I were roughly the same age. Mum, Dad and I are heartbroken, and we grieve with his Mum and Dad who are the loveliest of people.
Riley and I were best friends, we played together, and I visited his house so much I am like one of their family. We had such fun and great times together exploring the letterbox mounted on the wall and making mischief.
My heart is broken, I can’t find my friend. Please, join me in wishing Riley a safe passage across the Rainbow Bridge to wait for his Mum and Dad. Please, you don’t need to respond, you are not obliged – I wanted to record just how important Riley was to me and to my family.
Thank you for reading and your support. I can’t bring myself to add Riley to our In Memoriam page just yet. Forgive me, this is his memorial as Mum’s planted Nikau palm is a memorial for Dash.
