Today this gentle soul joined the angels. River was one of the sweetest dogs you could ever meet. He took his last ride to McDonald’s for a delicious ice cream cone that he enjoyed until the last lick. Waiting with open arms at the bridge is his human Dad, fur-siblings Roxy, Hammy, Nutmeg, Oso, and Geronimo, as well as feathered-brothers Kiwi, Chico, Robbie, and Omar. Last but not least, butterfly sister, Mariposa.
He leaves behind his human family: his mom (Ann), big sister (Emily) and two older brothers (Aaron & Joey). He also leaves behind two special fur-cousins, Bella and Zena, his loving aunt, Aunt Gail. As well as little sister Josie, and feathered-brother, Rupaul. He will also be missed by feline friend Bella Cornick, and his fence buddy, Meeko Fitzgerald. We are sure they will miss their morning chats. He will also be missed by the city garbageman and the Irving propane man, we are sure the barking was nothing personal! He was just confident they were stealing our stuff. Live like River, don’t take life too seriously. Kick some grass over the rough spots and keep moving.
Cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers, River requests that everybody take some time to hug their fur babies extra close tonight.
As a retired CKC Champion, River will be competing in the big dog show in the sky tonight.
