In my line of work, I do get these notes from time to time but in these last two weeks there has just been so much sad news. Sophie, Bandit and Chewie are beautiful dogs I had the honor to meet and photograph in the last few years and each passed away from cancer this month. Please keep their families in your thoughts. Bandit, Sophie, and Bailey (her memorial was on the blog a few weeks ago as well) have Rainbow Bridge memorials with Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption if you’d like to leave a flower in their memory.
I shared this quote a couple years ago, but of anything I’ve ever read I think it brings the most comfort:
“It came to me that every time I lose a dog, they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.” (Cheryl Zuccaro)
Rest in peace, dear ones. You are sorely missed.
