There are some blogs that I look at everyday. One of those is from Claudia of MOCKINGBIRD HILL COTTAGE. Claudia, like me, has two sweet dogs that were around the same age as our Duffy and Penny, who we lost this year and the end of last year.

Scout and Riley are her babies. They are in so many of her posts that I, like many of her followers, felt we knew them.

Both have had some health issues, Riley more. Whenever I saw a picture of one of them on my sidebar I would hold my breath hoping they were okay. Today, Riley's picture popped up and when I visited Claudia she told us they had lost sweet Riley yesterday.

My heart breaks for her, Don and Scout.

Goodbye Riley, we will all miss you.


  1. How very sad. We know all about how this feels. We just need to focus on all the happy times we shared.

  2. Blessings to all. Anyone with fur babies knows the hardship this brings.
