Easy one in the 'Riley Riddle' tradition:

My prefix is unused. 

My suffix is a forest removed. 

My infix is a reunited analogue. 

I am all alone but for a dog.

    $\begingroup$ Just to make sure, analogue, not analog, right? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @PaigeMeinke, I waffled on which form to use but went with ue because I felt analog might be misleading to technical people. I personally use them in different ways, but technically they're supposed to be interchangeable. Good question. english.stackexchange.com/a/206959/185028 $\endgroup$

He is in

New-found-land

My prefix is unused.

Unused is new.

My suffix is a forest removed.

A forest removed is just land.

My infix is a reunited analogue.

An analogue of being reunited is found.

I am all alone but for a dog.

Newfoundland is all alone because it is an island, but does have its Labrador for company!

  • $\begingroup$ @Riley, hahaha. I hope you've been enjoying these. I enjoy this riddle type. When I'm reading now I tend to look more closely at word constructions because of them. Maybe now you'll have to visit Newfoundland and tell us how it is! $\endgroup$

I guess Riley has been to...

Newark, or Newark-on-Trent, England.

My prefix is unused.

We called an unused thing as "a new thing".

My suffix is a forest removed.

The flood is coming, cut down all the woods to make an ark!

My infix is a reunited analogue.

Unite all the manpower to engage a war.

I am all alone but for a dog.

Well, there is one new built ark, so it is alone.
However, there is a place that held a dog show not far from the downtown area.

  • $\begingroup$ I wished I could have said new was correct, but it feels like I'm giving too much of the puzzle away. Good answer. $\endgroup$
