Winston's Tribute

The day started like any other real estate photo shoot.  After a brief introduction with Julie the realtor and June the homeowner,  I am given the usual tour of the home.  Upon reaching the kitchen I meet Winston, the family dog.  As if you couldn't tell,  I am a dog lover.  As I kneel down to greet this happy little pooch, Julie informs me that today was the unfortunate day that Winston was going to be put to sleep  :(  


For the next three hours as I did my business photographing the house,  all I could think of was how sad the situation was.  After finishing up I realized I had extra time before my next shoot.  So I asked June if it would be ok if I could use that time to take a few photos of Winston.  And with that for the next 40 minutes Winston became the star of the show!


I felt honored to be able to capture some of Winston's last moments of his life.  He even got to sit up on the couch for the first time!  This one's for you buddy!
