Gunner and Riley

One Last Adventure

More: Riley, or Riley Bug as we called him, was one part sweet and the other part sour. A sour patch kid mixed with a caterpillar. He was a 90-pound cocoon filled with more charisma and americana than Steve Rogers could handle. He was the glue that held our family together, and just like a caterpillar, Riley managed to spin our hearts into his silk cocoon. Put shortly, he was our world. Riley Bug crossed the rainbow bridge just two weeks after his 7th birthday. Lymphoma. Lymphoma took our best friend away from us far too soon. Lymphoma took Riley away from Gunner. They were best friends and adventure buddies to the very end. Gunner is almost 10 now and still lives everyday to the fullest, for Riley Bug.
