Hopefully this will work. Pictures are in no particular order. They vary from 7 weeks of age to 10 months of age. The very last pic is the last picture I took of him the day before he died with my cell phone all covered in mud.



April 8, 2011 to February 20, 2012

Can't stop thinking about this today, it's so incredibly sad. I'm sorry that he wasn't destined to spend a longer time on this earth, but I'm sure he couldn't have spent that time any better or been any more loved. Those pictures of him running free through the palmettos with a big pack of buddies–what a life! All dogs should be so lucky.

What a handsome, happy boy, living the good life. No one could have given him a better home or more love in his time here on Earth. I am so sorry for the loss of Riddick, but you have made such wonderful memories in a short time.

Godspeed, Riddick. You are loved greytly.

I occasionally get a little teary-eyed, but I'm not a "crier".


Well, now I'm sobbing. I could have handled the pics (i think), but the music did me in :(


I'm torn by the absolute joy displayed in the pictures and the tragedy of a young life cut far too short.


He couldn't have spent the time he had with a better family, that's for sure.

You could not have chosen a more appropriate song to accompany your tribute to Riddick. Your dogs all seem to be such good friends. Every day a new adventure. Hold tight to those memories you created, they will help to heal that Riddick-sized hole in your heart. I am so very sorry. :grouphug


Godspeed Riddick. The boy who danced every single day of his life. :gh_run

he was an extrordinarily handsome boy :) :)


I am so sorry he had to leave you so very soon :cry1 That boy packed more happiness into his 10 months with you than so many of these guys get in one lifetime. He was truly blessed to have been with you.


sending you many, many hugs. :grouphug

Riddick reminds us how precious life is, no matter the number of days.

A life spectacularly well lived and well loved.

Riddick was so, so lucky to spend his life with you. Every dog should be so fortunate to live his life as he did. Being a dog.

He had a very happy life with you and his friends. I'm so very sorry it was cut short.
