Riot took a turn today, and was suffering. Thank you for the support. Love wasn’t enough. I don’t believe in any afterlife. I hope I’m wrong.

Noooooo!  Cannot believe it!!!   Can only echo Jerry shocked and stunned and balling like a baby.  Shaking my head in disvelief!!!! Jate thos effing disease!  Hate it!!!

I have no words right now either.  Just sick on my stomach to hear this.  There isn’t a person on this enntire site who is crying right now as they read this.  I wish that would help.  I wish our tears could help lessen yours 

For now, I can only utter out the words that you did EVERYTHING,  EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING POSSIBLE  FOR RIOT AND HE KNEW IT!

He was so happy yesterday in that picture   Hold onto that.

Very sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing everything you did about Riot with us here. I hear you on the afterlife thing but I hold out hope that all dogs go to heaven, they certainly earn it with everything they do for us.

So sorry for the loss of Riot….I’ve been following your story, and am totally shocked and saddened to hear this. Wishing you peace in the coming days.

Of course it does, that’s totally to be expected, especially because this is the time of year when you’re “supposed” to be happy. I can’t think of a harder time of year to lose a loved one. My heart aches for you.

Snuggle up with Czar, know that you did your absolute best for Riot, and that in time, your heart will feel less pain. But for now, just allow yourself to grieve. Czar is right there with you in the heartache, and together you can hold each other up. We will be with you every day, every step of the way as you heal.

I am so sorry about Riot! He was A true fighter, and you did everything you could. My belief is I don’t think we would receive such a wonderful and beautiful gift just to be taken away and never seen again. So I do believe we will see each other on the other side.

I have read all your post and know how much you loved Riot and In return how much he loved you. I know you hear this a lot, but he was truly fortune to have You!

So sorry for your loss….

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

I’m so sorry.

Riot knew only love and you gave him every chance. Take some time to mourn Riot and find some time for yourself.  I know you still have a lot on your plate…

Sending strength and peace to you.

Holding you in our hearts💖    Still shakng our heads in disbelief, even though we all k ow dar too well how abruptly  things can change with this disease. 

We know the void and change in routine  seems unbearable.  We know just when you think you can’t  cry anymore, the grief will hit you like a ton of bricks.  This is a rough time, and them this time of year and Czar’s situation on top of everything else….our hearts  just break for you.

As hard as it is, p,ease know thst Riot wants to know you will be okay.  And, with time, you will be.  But right now he needs to know that you will celebrate  his wonderful life that he had with you. The two of you ,are soooo many glorious memories.  You made every day magical for Riot.  He would not change one si goe thing in his life, just as long as you two shared your earth life together.❤

Pay attention.   Riot WILL connect  with you in his own way and in his own time. He will do it in ways specific to you….specific.to him………pay attention.

My Happy Hannah. transitioned outof jer earthclothes in the month of April,,along with several other beloved members.  We called them “April’s Angel’s.💖 On some level, we each found comfort knowing those that traveled their tripawd joirney as “family” here, reconnected healthy and whole at the Bridge.

When several passed in the Fall this year, Roane’s mom made a connection that helped us formulate “Autumn’s Angels”.💖

Ziggy, Eider and now handsome Riot all headed to the Bridge in close proximity.   I hope you and the others can find comfort in knowing  that they will never be forgotten here and shall furever ve oit beloved Winter Warriors.  When the first snowfall  comes and the snowflakes  brush  across your cheeks, I hope you will think of it as Riot giving  you a great big kiss.

With love

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too

Grieving at the holidays makes you a leper. I can’t even walk Czar now, as I have pneumonia. I just miss my boy so much.
