Our Furry Friends: Emergency Dog Portraits

Our Furry Friends: Emergency Dog Portraits

There have been a few occasions when I have been called, asked to do some emergency doggie portraits when dog owners find out that their animal has a disease, like cancer.

I got a call last week with the sad news that one of my family photo customers had found out that their dog has cancer all of a sudden. And an aggressive form, and have been told that this dog might only be around for maybe a week! As a desperate attempt to keep the dog around for maybe another year, this family is considering an amputation of the dog’s arm which is where the cancer is located and putting it through some chemotherapy, which could buy the dog another year.

Whatever the case may be, anyone who knows me, knows I am a lover of dogs and I hope everything goes well for their furry little family member.

I believe we got some great shots.  Dogs are amazing animals – all smiles.

For all of you people who are “not a dog person”, you’ll never understand.  Dogs are very much like family members.  They are these little furry packages of constant positive energy that follow us around like shadows, providing us with a daily source of happiness, a lovable distraction from the stresses of everyday life.  When their short lives end, it’s probably one of the hardest things to swallow.  I am definitely feeling for this family.  I hope the treatment options work for this dog!

They have some other dogs, too with a lot of personality.  This one doesn’t go anywhere without his frisbee.

And this little one is a little timid.  And very camera shy.

Thanks for calling me up!  I hope for the best for all of your dogs!

    Mark, we can’t thank you enough for taking the time to support the Aslin family. You are absolutely correct saying a dog to an animal lover is much more than a pet, they are a member of the family. Thank you for your kindness and wonderful work.
