A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
Those words speak volumes about our dear Kami. Kami was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer in October 2016. Four short weeks later, we had to say goodbye to our beloved, sweet, loyal pup. It was one of the hardest goodbyes we've ever faced.
Thankfully, our dear friend, Casie McCabe, with Casie McCabe Photography, captured these timeless, cherished photos.
After noticing a change in Kami's behavior, I took Kami to our veterinarian, Dr. Chuck Hewitt at Westside Animal Clinic in Florence, South Carolina. An ultrasound and X-ray revealed a tumor beneath Kami's colon. Dr. Chuck explained it was likely Kami's last days were nearing and encouraged us to make the most of them.
It was heartbreaking. How was I going to tell Steven?
When Steven and I met, we both had boxers. What a coincident!
Kami belonged to Steven and Georgia belonged to me. We often joke that I fell in love with Kami long before I ever fell for Steven.
Kami was a very special pup. She was extremely gentle, loving and relaxed. You could take her anywhere. She loved attention, going for rides and pleasing you. I could ask, "Who wants a treat?" and before I could open the pantry, there sat Kami with one paw in the air, waiting for me to say, "Paw."
She was truly hand-picked and we are so blessed to have had her.
Fortunately, my husband and I were able to make the best of Kami's last days.
If you have the same opportunity, I highly suggest getting professional pictures made with your pet.
So often, we snap a picture here and there, but it's almost always with the camera on our phone.
Before Kami's shoot, we had never experienced a pet photo session.
This shoot may have been our first, but it won't be our last.
Kami may not be with us, but our memories from that day will last forever.
