Black Rock Life of Reilly CDX RN JH WC CC CGC Can CD
10/17/00 - 4/1/08
Reilly was my first Labrador and the one who made me fall in love with the breed. He was a sweet mellow boy who was often compared to "Ferdinand the Bull" - he always took time to stop and smell the roses. He loved a good game of tug and was not above begging for a belly rub. His favorite season was Fall, when the apples (his favorite treat) seemed to rain from the sky. He gave me my start in obedience competition and introduced me to the world of dogs. Above all else, Reilly was my beloved "Heart Dog" and cherished once-in-a-lifetime friend who could usually be found at my side. Reilly crossed over the Rainbow Bridge far too soon and is terribly missed. See a Tribute to Reilly in the Labrador Quarterly.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. ~Anonymous
