Bear & His Family

This is Bear, a sweet 8 year old lab who loves his family very much. I met Bear in his home last week. We went out on the front porch as it sprinkled and took some of the quickest family photos I've ever taken. 

Our pets are with us for such a short amount of time of our lifetimes, but the way that they love us for those years will stay with us forever. Bear is sick. It was important to Andrea to get photos of him with the people he loves the most while he was still well enough to do it because they can't do anything for him. The future is unknown for all of us, of course, but I'm praying for the Tyson family that Bear has a lot more days of loving them like this. That smile says it all. He is loved. And he loves.
