Remembering Sherman, what a handsome pup.

“Someone asked me what the most difficult thing about having a dog was. I replied – the goodbye” – Unknown

I remember taking this photo of Sherman back in 2019. It was late February and the yard was piled with leaves with touches of green weeds here and there. I had left my camera on the kitchen table after a portrait session and went over to the kitchen sink for something. I looked out the window and saw Sherman laying in a shady spot by the studio, a place I had never seen him lay before. He usually loved laying in the sun and following its path as it moved across the yard during the afternoons. I was struck by the variety and intensity of the different colors in his fur and how the leaves seemed to accentuate just how handsome he was. His beautiful round brown eyes were the biggest eyes I had ever seen on any of my dogs. I grabbed the camera and stood on my tippy toes not to get the window frame in the photo. I had to zoom in a bit to capture what has turned out to be one of my favorite photos of him, only topped by the photo of him in the snow just weeks before he passed. Today is the one-year anniversary of losing him so he has been on my mind for several days. Sure miss him.
