Celebration of the heart

Fawn greyhound


He is our boy, we flew him home straight from the track in Florida. He was probably one of the best dogs… ever.

Today, we said good-bye. With a heavy heart and tears streaming down our faces we said good-bye to our boy Moose.

It wasn’t an easy call to make, but we promise each and every pet that we bring into our lives that their life would always be about quality, not quantity.

On Monday we knew that our time together with Moose was growing shorter. I wanted a few really good photos of him. Taking him out to the back yard wasn’t going to happen, so I set up the lighting in our bedroom where he would be the most comfortable. I wanted pictures of his ears that went this way and that way. I wanted pictures of his bright brown eyes, pictures of his paws and pictures of him laying on his side and lifting his head looking up like he did so many times.

I will miss his kisses tonight and tomorrow. I will miss his groans of pleasure when I rubbed his ears just right. And I took 100 photos so that we will be able to celebrate him forever in our hearts.
