I sit tonight and write this with a heavy heart. I miss him so much and I feel this is good for my soul and his memory. Words of Thanks will never be enough for those who have prayed for us, sent their thoughts and kind words to Myself and Brandon through this time. As a photographer I know the importance of images but each time I would photograph any of my dogs I did not want to miss any detail, for one day I knew I would miss every little detail, his ears, his feet that I could hear hit the floor in a deep sleep, his sweet face that he would rub on me every morning as he was waking up, then to lick his feet as if they got sooo dirty through the night. His smile that would make my day so bright. Just one look at his face brought me so much joy & laughter, the look, teeth in, teeth out, Bulldogs have so many looks always ever changing but yet the same dog.
I used to Love to watch him roll on his back down the hill through the yard, He LOVED it and I would always wonder does it really feel that good? Then I stopped to think yes it does…we used to do it as kids. I used to get so angry at him for eating grass all the time oh man what I would do to see him do that again. I spent the last hours with my nose to his face (and feet) because I never wanted to forget that smell. I could never put into words what he gave to me other then the purest LOVE that I could ever feel, deep into my soul. I’m so Blessed to have had him in my life and so Thankful that I never put the camera down so I have so many wonderful images of him. Thank You so much Dr. Bingham and the staff of Southridge Vet for everything you did to make this an easier time for us. Many THANKS to Tara Molles for capturing such wonderful images of us. Thank You!
Your Story…you laugh…you wait…you cry…you remember…you Love…FOREVER!
Rest In Peace My Sweet Boy, Baxter.
