“Blessed are those who have the love of an old dog.”
It’s Pet Week at I Heart Faces. This is our 13 year old yellow lab, Peacemaker’s Misty Autumn. Autumn…to us.
Autumn and I had a photoshoot during the last snowfall this year. I spent 20 minutes trying to get her to look at the camera but it never worked! There’s a sadness to this photo for me because my thought process was, “I’d better get some photos of Autumn, while we have the chance.” It breaks my heart to even type that. She’s really went downhill in the last several months. Her back legs won’t cooperate when she wants to walk. She’s starting to have accidents in the house and I know that mortifies her. I can’t even begin to figure out how to prepare the kids for Autumn’s inevitable passing. Why can’t our pets have a longer lifespan? =(
