It’s hard for me to write this blog post without getting teary. I don’t like coming to terms with the fact that our furry loved ones leave us in what seems like a blink of an eye. This reality is especially hard as a pet photographer and even though I realize I am creating lasting memories for the owner, it still makes my heart ache.
At 15 1/2 Mocha lived a full life. You could see it in his eyes and in his occasional little grin. I knew this boy was well loved and I knew that he had given his mom, Lisa, as much love as he received. The bond between Mocha and Lisa was/is so very special. I feel honored to have been able to capture these last moments in their beautiful life. I also am very thankful to have met Anchor and find comfort in knowing that he will bring so much joy to Lisa in Mocha’s absence.
