The other week I got a message from a good friend telling me that their dear friend Chevy had been diagnosed with leukaemia. My heart broke for her as I thought back to the several times I have gone through the loss of a pet. A pet isn’t just a pet. The pet is often a member of the family. I know in our house, we had dogs before there were children and now to watch the kids interact with the dogs, and watch the dogs protect and play with the kids is unbelievable. They know when you aren’t feeling well, when you are excited, when you are just happy to be there. Perhaps the best part about a dear friend like Chevy, is that he gives unconditional love. Dogs don’t care if you’re fat, thin, brown, white, tall, short. They just love you for who you are and because you chose to make them a part of your family.
So, one week later, after having the honour of photographing this fantastic dog and his family, we say goodbye dear friend. You will be missed.
