This handsome, beautiful boy was Theodore, my nine year old German shepherd whom we bred and lost suddenly to cancer only a week ago,
Losing Theo was losing a family member. I put just as much time, effort and work into raising him as I do my own children and Theo gave so much back, he was amazing.
I am grieving for him and from experience of losing previous dogs, that grieving process never actually stops, the feelings diminish and reduce but they never fully leave you because he meant so much to us all.
We deal with grief in different ways. My wife, whom Theo absolutely adored was very distressed that she didn’t have a photograph of her and Theodore together and now he is gone, she never would.
A month or so ago, we visited friends in Wales and took the dogs with us and my wife was unaware I had taken several photographs of her and Theo together so she was even more emotional as we viewed those together shortly after we lost him. The photographs gave my wife a great deal of comfort as she has a visible image of her with Theo.
We all have lots of photographs os our dogs, probably its of selfies as well but have you got any of you and your dog just being happy together, just having fun?
I would strongly recommend you do, I would be very happy to work with you to capture those special moments in time that will never be repeated in the same way.
We had Theo cremated and he is back with us now and the pain is a little less because he is back with us. Our dogs mean so much to us and nine years old was far too soon to lose Theo, we really treasure the photographs we have of him and most importantly, the photographs we have of him with us.
Love you Theo xxx
