RIP Riley

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Riley was a 7 year old Neopolitan Mastiff who passed away suddenly last week. He originally belonged to my friend, but when her neighbours complained about being afraid of Riley, he was given to some of her close friends who owned a 100 acre farm. Riley was a gentle giant with a heart as big as he was. When his owners went away for a 2 week vacation they left him in the care of friends along with some kibble and a case of wet food. Sadly they didn't know anything about the recall till after they got back and realized that Riley was very sick. Riley died from kidney failure in their arms. They are feeling overwhelmed with guilt and anger at the moment. I would ask your prayers for Riley and all the other animals that have passed or are still fighting for life after being poisoned by the tainted pet food.

I wish Riley peace, and may he play happily over the Rainbow Bridge. May his family find comfort in knowing that Riley lived a full and well loved 7 years. And may the industry learn an important lesson from this, and help to prevent this from ever happening again.

Oh no!! That is so sad. I am praying for Rileys family, and friends as well.

Play happily Riley...go find Skeeter, I am sure he would be glad to play ball or tug of war with you.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of this wonderful animal. I know that Riley is over the Bridge, and playing happily with his friends.

I'm very sorry to hear about this. This is a very difficult time, but here's a reminder that any and all deaths or illness related to tainted pet food need to be reported to the FDA. I hope his family or their vet will take time to do this.
