Photographing a sick and old dog always brings memories of what we went through as a family with our Max. It's not always an easy time for a family because pets end up becoming part of our tribe because many of them live with us for many years. So I would like to introduce Fergus, who is part of the Howson Family.
Fergus is a 13 year and 8 month old Lab x Kelpie. Fergus was Veronica and Dave's first baby and has been a loyal, well mannered beautiful dog and has lived a great healthy life. At the end of May, he got diagnosed with a melanoma in his mouth and was told the cancer had quickly spread and he may not make it through that coming weekend. Since that diagnoses, he has had many ups and downs but 'he's been a strong boy and we're so lucky he's still with us.' The boys Ashley and Oliver have only known life with Fergus and love him dearly.
I am so happy they decided to get photos of the whole family. It is a timely reminder that these beautiful animals are not with us forever. I hope the photos produced on that day will become treasured memories for them to look back on. It was an absolute delight and I feel privileged to have been able to meet Fergus and his gorgeous hooman family.
