Linda, John, and their dog, Mama, met with Jennifer from Emerald Moon Photography for some family photos in Beverly, Massachusetts, last fall. Sadly, Mama passed away in the spring. Although their loss is immeasurable, I’m sure that these photos help remind them of happier times.
From Jennifer: “The love for our dogs is unconditional. We should celebrate dogs often.”
From Linda: “I adopted Mama about five years ago from my nephew. He was in the military and serving overseas. I would take care of her when he was gone, and she and I developed an instant bond. When my nephew was going overseas with his wife at the time, she also had dogs. Unfortunately, their dogs did not get along. I was thrilled when my nephew asked if I wanted her, and naturally, I jumped at the chance.
Mama and I went everywhere together. She loved the beach and walking in the woods. My husband and I would take her out to dinner with us (outdoor seating, of course); she was a huge hit. People would walk out of their way to say hi and give her loves, and Mama loved people. She loved all the attention. I would let her run off lead, and Mama would never go farther than 15-25 feet from me and always check to see where I was. She loved riding in my jeep with the top and doors off, the wind in her face. Mama was a cancer survivor of five years.
Words can’t convey how loved she was. I tell people that Mama is my heart, and I miss her every day. I miss her smile. Mama used to ‘talk’ to me when I walked through the door after work. I would put my things down, sit on the couch and listen to her telling me about her day. I would say hi to her and listen to her before I said hi to my husband. She will always be in my heart and soul.”
