I was asked by some friends to take some photographs of their family dog because he was getting so old, they didn't know how long he would be around. What I didn't know, is that they may actually be needing to put him to sleep. Seeing this sweet old dog just tore my heart out. We went outside to get some shots, and this poor ol guy stumbled and struggled just to get down one stair. All of a sudden, a quick afternoon shoot for a friend became much more important. This was going to be documenting a "family member" for possibly the last time. I'm now possibly responsible for how he was to be remembered. Pictures are said to be worth a thousand words, but after taking these, only one comes to mind. . . goodbye.
