Sadly, Riley, my cavalier with SM who somehow managed to make it to the age of 15 and 2 days, died today. She was the most courageous dog, the sweetest, the most lovable. The only way I knew she was in pain or any kind of discomfort was when I would find her hiding under a table to get away from my other dogs. A light has gone out from my heart today, never to be replaced. I know time will heal my grief, but it's raw right now, even though I've been expecting it for quite some time now. I just loved my girl.
