My neighbour called me over to say that Abby, their Golden Retriever, had been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer and she might not have long. I went over and photographed her but she was very bouncy and full of excitement as she often was, thrilled to see a new person, to greet them with boundless enthusiasm. I always called her the Greeter Dog. The next day I had planned to go back to see if I could get a close-up of her eyes but my neighbour told me she had passed.
One always thinks there will be one more day but it was not to be. I am always reminded by loss that we must be kind to one another, forgive quickly, apologize more rapidly and love one another.
