Riley June 2, 2007 - July 21,2008

This precious baby passed away yesterday


His owner (Steph's real dad) called me yesterday to say that Riley had died. He had him outside and when he went to check on him he was gone. Stephanie took it well but was very sad. Riley was her dog. He only got him because she wanted one of Sophie's puppies. He was a beautiful dog and had the promise of a great future. His owner was in the process of training him through a local training class and he was progressing very well.

It is a bit mysterious as to how he died. I know that it was so hot yesterday there would be no way I would have let my girls out for that long without checking on them. I am not saying that he did anything wrong per say, just that something doesn't seem right.

But the end result is the same. This precious life is gone and he will be missed by many people.

Rest In Peace Riley

Aw poor Riley. Boxers have some odd problems that you'd only sometimes see on autopsy, heart defects being the most common. That's why you are always supposed to have their hearts evaluated before breeding. I can't even imagine the stress of going through all of that to have a litter. So sorry for your loss!

He was adorable. It is always hard to lose a member of the family, I'm sure he will never be forgotten by all who loved him.
