Our animals are often like part of the family. Some people even go so far as to call them “furbabies”. Sadly, their lifespan is shorter than ours – so having keepsake images to remember them by is always nice. The upside to this is that we get to have more animals in our lives over the years. Right now we have an aging 13 year old dog who gets carried up the stairs everyday. He is hanging in there through the ice and cold. I cherish my photos of my horse and my first dog, I had such intense affection for those creatures!
