Back in August my dad, our dog Ruby and I all traveled to Ohio for a visit with family. The trip was sort of necessary. My dad really wanted to go back to Ohio and see his friends, I needed the break from full time caring for dad and of course Jesse needed a break from all of it. It turned out to be a pretty good trip for the most part. I had a bit of trouble with dad on the plane on our return flight but overall we all had a good time. I took a ton of personal photos of Ruby and my brother’s two dogs.
I promise to elaborate more in another post about the in’s and out’s of traveling with my dad and his dementia but this post is about my friend Susy and her puppy Dexter. I did a couple of sessions while I was in Ohio and Susy hired me to photograph her new puppy. I took my sister in law with me so we could visit and check out Susy’s new house. It’s always so hard to see everyone when I come to visit and a lot of the time I can’t make it happen to see everyone. It leaves me feeling guilty but my hope is that my friends understand.
This was the only time I had with Susy while we were in town but I am glad we were able to touch base and catch up. Some friends you have for a short while and others you have for life. I have had both and I am fortunate to have a few that have stuck around all these years.
