Sly by Vickie Emms

Photographic Prints

Small (8.0" x 9.3")

Available to buy on…

This is my beautiful old babe when he was an usher at my daughter’s outdoor wedding in our yard in 2005. He was so proud that day with his glossy coat and walked down the aisle with his lei around his neck just like you see here. Sadly one year later at the age of 13 he passed away while I was on a vacation. I haven’t gotten over that to this day. Sly was rescued as a puppy from under a house where his mother raised her pups. He was a Newfoundland/Springer Cross. I still love you Babe, see you at the Rainbow Bridge sweetheart, kisses.

    He was beautiful, Vickie…thanks for sharing his story. You should have made the motion background in rainbow colors for the rainbow bridge!

  • thanks hon, this image was made when he was still alive, I went into some old folders today and found some of my Webshots albums, so I picked him out of there with a few others I will upload here and there. That is a nice idea though, thanks for your visit xo

    Excellent work Vickie, so glad he had the opportunity to perfom his duties at the wedding, but so sorry he had to move on to Dog Heaven, I guess it was his time…but you still have your memories.

  • we are never ready to lose them Larry. I found this old photo from Webshots in one of my albums, so I thought it would be nice to share in here now. thanks so much for caring

    Oh Vickie!! He was such a beautiful fella!! I can tell he was well cared for and so loved. My dog Jack crossed the rainbow bridge in 1993 he was a Golden Retriever…I still cry over pictures of him and memories of him at times….they are family. Never blame yourself for not being there at the final stage, he new you loved him and he watches over you as we speak. xxxxx :]

  • I know he does hon, I wasn’t finished with him, and the story is personally tragic,,,,,,,he didn’t wait for me by half an hour (tears)
