Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day and I thought I would make this one special. I am so lucky to have all of my animals with me at work EVERY day. My pack is pictured above. I cherish them more than ever since they have been diagnosed with major health problems. The dog is the chair is Molly. Molly is from Sheltie Rescue. She is 14 and has renal failure. The dog on the floor is Sophie. Sophie is a Whippet and is 11 years old. She just had a soft tissue sarcoma (cancer) removed. We are hoping it has not metastasized. The cat is Lucy. Lucy is a delight we adopted a few months ago from Dallas Animal Services and she is about a year old. No health problems there!
This portrait was made quite recently. I knew that the two dogs were ill and I wanted to photograph them while they were still feeling fine. Too many people wait until it is too late to photograph their sick dogs. I didn’t want to be one of those people. I am so blessed to be able to have my pets with me at work and so every day for me is “Take Your Dog to Work Day”. I intend to make the most of each day with my dogs and savor every moment they have left.
