Rio (wildrose river dance
4/5/2001 - 5/26/2015Rio and I developed a once in a lifetime bond. He was my best friend and we were inseparable, on the weekends especially. Although he was 14, he was so so healthy and I thought we would have him for a while longer. His suffering was short at the end. He taught me so much, and as Laura, his Lap of Love vet at the end said, "Rio wouldn't want me to be sad or feel regret. He would say thank you, see you again one day, and don't forget to embrace each day with joy and abandon, just like I taught you." He was such a handsome buddy, and I used to joke about how he makes the place look better. I am going to miss him so much! Just ironic that Diamond RIO released this song the same year RIO was born, but in honor and memory of the terrorist attack on the WTC:
Lyrics by Diamond ❤️RIO❤️:

Last night I had a crazy dream
A wish was granted just for me,
It could be for anything
I didn't ask for money
Or a mansion in malibu
I simply wished, for one more day with you

One more day
One more time
One more sunset, maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again
I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still, for one more day with you

First thing I'd do, is pray for time to crawl
Then I'd unplug the telephone
And keep the tv off
I'd hold you every second
Say a million I love you's
That's what I'd do. With one more day with you

Rest in peace little buddy. You were an amazing dog, and companion to my parents. You were there baby, and made them so happy. You will truly be missed. We always enjoyed seeing you when we came to visit. You certainly kept things exciting as you were always fighting for the attention :). We loved you RIO. We know you are playing with Murphy now.
