Dogs are members of the family too: Leo gone but not forgotten

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

I have always believed that our pets are furry members of the family.  We have a story in our family that my dad was approached by a condo manager when we were on vacation who asked “Do you have a pet in there?” as we were not supposed to .  My dad confidently said “We don’t consider her a pet, she is a member of the family”.  And so it goes that I believe they should be in our documented portraits….especially in this case.

My friend mentioned to me that her dog was very ill and they did not know how much time he would have.  I immediately asked if they had thought of family photos with him.

As it turns out their time was much shorter than they had anticipated and he passed away exactly 1 week after these were taken.

Thankfully he was well enough to go on a walk this day and their family could enjoy him and include him in their Holiday card photos!
