The (True) Story of Riddick





I met Riddick for the first and last time on Jan 25, 2008. It was a cold 13 degrees, clear, starry night. I looked up at the sky, seeing the all familiar constellation Orion. I was thinking how cold the night air was. I walked down a gently sloping lawn towards a dark and lifeless trailer. There, not ten feet from the front door, was a makeshift dog house painted a bright blue. The first thing the beam from my flashlight caught was a huge, heavy gauged chain leading into the dog house. The chain was on a stake at one end, and the other was wrapped around Riddicks neck. This was my first encounter with this boy. He did not greet me with a wagging tail, nor did his soft, brown eyes look at me pleadingly for help to escape this man made hell. He had a soft white coat sprinkled with tan. His pads on his feet were pink. He was young, less than a year old. He had committed a crime through no fault of his own, he was born. He did not choose his owners, they chose him. Why? Did they fall in love with a cute puppy? Was it their intention to make him a family member? Riddicks demise came when his owners could no longer commit to each other, much less him, and both left the trailer and him behind. These two people were at the residence sporadically picking up belongings they thought to be important to them. Passing within two feet of a dog wagging his tail, begging for attention, and yet unseen. How does this happen? Riddick will never know the warmth of a home on a cold night, nor the love of a family, or what a full tummy feels like after a meal. His lifeless body lay there. Frozen to the ground, inside the small, blue, makeshift dog house. Emaciated to the point you could count every rib and notch on his backbone.





How insignificant he had become in the lives of his owners. To walk by a starving dog to pick up personal belongings makes me wonder if these two people even feel remorse. Tears came to my eyes for Riddick. His life should have been so much more than what it was. I thought of my own dogs. How loved they are and how they bring me so much joy. Riddick was never given that chance. As I walked away from the site of his death, I vowed that he would never be forgotten and everyone I know would know Riddick
