We all know that our pets won’t live forever. It’s one of the realities of life. We all get old and die. Pets have a much shorter life span than humans —and dogs shorter usually than cats. Thus it’s important to make sure you get a great portrait before it’s too late.
Pets, like humans can develop health issues and go before their normal time. Likewise they can get injured and die. We encourage our clients to make sure they have a recent portrait of their pet that they can remember them by. After all this is your companion and faithful friend. We’ve had clients who have meant to come in for a session and never got around to it then had their dog die suddenly.
When pets become old it becomes difficult for them to get a portrait created. They have trouble walking, seeing and hearing. So we urge you to come before it gets too difficult for you or your pet. You want to remember them when they are at least alert enough to look up, perk their ears and look somewhat happy.
We do give priority on scheduling sessions for people in emergency situations. We got a call last week from some distraught owners that just learned that their pup didn’t have long to live and they really wanted to get a nice portrait of her. Alyssa (pictured) was a sweetheart. She is eight but has a terminal lung condition that makes it very difficult for her to breathe. Though she tired easily as she struggled to breath she posed for use quite happily. Yes, it was a tearful time for us and the owners but they are so glad that they could get one last series of portraits created of their faithful friend. One of our most popular products is a multi image panel which they got to have on the walls of their home to remember her forever.
So please, don’t wait too long. Assess the health of your pet and get a portrait created before it’s too late. Call us today to schedule @719.475.0160.
