Riley Rutherford
2/8/2006 - 9/4/2019Our sweet Pom Pom, Riley, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this week. He truly brought so much joy & happiness to our lives everyday and leaves a huge void in our home now. He was our first baby...with us for 13 AMAZING years! Lived in Raleigh with us for our 1st year of teaching, lived in our 1st house in NT, was the 1st "grandbaby" for my parents, was around for our wedding, was there for all 3 kids being born and growing up with then, got to go on many family vacations with us...and throughout it all he was the most loving, happy and silly boy! I'll never forget him always greeting everyone at the door by barking & wagging his pom pom tail until he was pet, giving lots of doggie kisses, always rolling around in the snow, stealing anyone's unattended food or beer (including chicken wings and pies), licking any and all crumbs up off the floor (especially from the kids lol), getting the zoomies after baths and so much more....We were so lucky to have each other. He will forever be in our hearts and so glad that we have so many great memories together that I will always cherish!North Tonawanda, New YorkSeptember 8, 2019

Riley was with his loving family through so many life transitions and his bond was evident. Though his fluffy body is gone, his energy still exists, perhaps most evidently through the memories of his family and friends. He loved and was very well loved in return.Julie Zalenka - September 25, 2019
