Dakota As He Was, And Now Has Passed by 


This image is of one gorgeous and beautiful Golden Retriever. I bought him 10 years ago, and have loved him ever since. Unfortunately after 10 years of love, loyalty and unending faithfulness, he passed away Thursday from cancer.. a tumor attached to his spleen that was inoperable. He has left behind a multitude of family members who are in a state of sadness right now, but know he has his wings to heaven.

Photography is an interest I have developed over the last few years, now It has become much more. I spend many hours on photo shoots, enjoying the outdoors and what Mother Nature provides for each and every one of us.

My moto is: You don’t take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it.

  • Thank you so much Pamela for your thoughtfulness and awesome words. the situation is very raw right now and the tears are still flowing amongst us all. After 10 years of devotion, loving and endearment within the family, this beautiful animal is now suffering with cancer. He has shown bravery during this sad time and now he is at peace with himself. He has earned his wings to heaven, and hopefully he is happy and remember his good times. Thank you so much for your wonderful words Pamela, they mean a great deal. Love Susan xoxoxo
