Has anyone here ever noticed that you never realize how few pictures of your fur babies you have until it's too late for taking pictures? This is the dilemma I've been facing for the last few days. My wonderful dog Madison departed for the rainbow bridge on Saturday November 6, 2010. Yesterday, the 10th I started looking for pictures of my beloved only to find that I don't have very many. Sure I have one from my senior-year photo shoot, a few shots from my cell phone backgrounds over the last few years and one or two from her younger days that I know I have but have yet to scrounge up.
This seems devastating because this was my constant companion, my dog, my girl, my baby who had been around for twelve years of my life since I was 8 til I was 20 and now I can hardly find a decent picture? I guess I figured there would always be time for taking pictures...she wasn't going anywhere right? Now it's heartbreaking that I want to have pictures of her, things to remind me of her because I love her and there's hardly any around. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's gone though this and I think this is a good place for any of you who have felt this same thing to talk about it too. While I'm here, here's my one favorite picture I have of her, taken with a real camera.

She's beautiful and my heart breaks for you. My Phoebe passed on Nov. 6, too. I started looking for pics on Sunday (my horrible birthday) and could only find a few here and there, a couple out of focus ones that I had taken with my phone. I too thought she would always be there. I am sorry for your loss, please hold onto the fact taht we all will be reunited again. God Bless x0x0x

Madison is beautiful! And you're right! I didn't take enough pictures of my bunny either. We think we have all the time in the world, and suddenly our world as we know it is gone. I am very sorry for your loss. Life changes too much when our sweeties leave.

Thanks everyone, remember that you can post pictures that you've found of your loved ones here as well, I'd love to see them! :) Here's another I found today.
She always had great facial expressions and she could tell you anything with her eyes.

Oh my gosh...Madison is so cute! I'm going to start going through pictures tomorrow...but I too am worried I haven't taken enough.

What a beautiful girl. My birthday was Nov 6, 5 weeks after we put our Buffy down....worst birthday I ever had.
I know what you mean on the pictures....I am going through the same ordeal, I know I have to have more than what I am finding. I have friends who have taken pictures and they are sending me copies...you might have the same results if you start checking with friends and family. My heart goes out to you..it's difficult, but memorializing the talking and posting on this site your thoughts and feelings really does help. Lois
