goodbyes



I guess I'm just now understanding how hard it is to say goodbye to old friends. As I go through old photos I see that this dog, Chumpy, had a pretty good life, though above she appears to be having one of her melancholy moments. This was from my first day with a new camera. I have frequently resisted the temptation to photograph the same convenient subjects over and over, but now I think that there are some things you can never have too many pictures of.

Phil, did you lose Chumpy? If so, I'm very sorry to hear that. My sincere condolences.

Thanks - yes, Chumpy succumbed to a level of cancer I didn't know she had.

This is a very sweet photo of Champ (how she started--and ended). You've been a good dad, and she had a great life.

She'll be missed.
