so goodbye my friend,
i know i'll never see you again.
but the time together through all the years,
will take away these tears
it's okay now, goodbye my friend.
sadly, my dear friends chris + tracey had to say goodbye to their beloved java. i was honored to be able to photograph this sweet pup in her final days. we all love our pets, but this little chocolate lab was special. she had the finest disposition of any dog i ever knew. she was a delight to all and when her world suddenly changed with the arrival of her "sister" kylie, she gladly stood in the background to adore the baby. and even when another "sister" josie arrived she knew she had two special girls to watch over. we would always joke that java was here first. many of my memories of living here in newburyport involve this family, their two daughters and their little pup java. i know there is an empty hole in their hearts today and i hope in time they will heal and know how truly lucky they all were for knowing this incredible dog and for the ability to give her the love they did. she is right there by their sides, even though they can't see her, java would never let them be alone because they are a family.
