Riley (aka Drake)

On July 9th we suddenly lost our wonderful black Lab, Riley, whom we adopted in 2017, and we are writing this with heavy hearts. It was thought that he was about 4 years old at the time so we have lost him much too soon at about 9 years old. He was our 3rd Lab from CILRA, coming to us with separation anxiety. We spent that first summer with a professional trainer to help him conquer it, and many times we were ready to give up. After spending about 28 days on a strict regimen with him, we were successful, and we have loved these last 5 years that we shared with him. When I got on the CILRA website and happened to look through the news articles, the picture you have used for your 25 years article is our Riley (named Drake at the time) as you can see by the picture I have included. Thank you CILRA for once again providing us with another Lab to love. Maybe there just might be a 4th one out there for us to provide a home.  — Art and Fran K.
