Gary,
Very sorry to hear of River's passing. What a great tribute to a hunting partner that meant so much to you. You gave her a lifetime of happiness doing what she loved to do and she gave the same to you. What the two of you shared can never be replaced but I'm sure your new IWS will give you another lifetime of memories. God Bless!

Gary,
As you already know, I am very sorry for your loss. I love the first and third pictures. River was a VERY nice dog . I still laugh when I think of the picture of you training her to retrieve from the water.........

Well said, Gary. Your fine tribute to this wonderful gal tells me all I need to know. The two of you are so much like Chili and me----where we hunt alone, and sometimes only a scratch behind the ear is what happens.
She will always be remembered. I know your heart is heavy but with time we are graced with Peace.
Thanks for taking the time to show us these beautiful pictures. I know it is difficult to write about and even look at pictures when you are reflecting upon a hunting companion who never complained. It seems that the tears always get in the way----
Good luck with your new pup.

Every contibutor to this fourm knows how much you loved River. I haven't been on much lately but just saw this post and was like Oh My God. I actually got goose bumps.

Sorry for your loss.
Cheers,

That was such a special relationship you had and so many cherished memories created from it. I know this loss is something that will stay on your mind for a long time but trust me it does get better. My heart goes out to you and know that as the weeks pass you will feel a huge satisfaction for the great times you shared and all the things you and River did for each other.
