I learnt a hard lesson recently when the family dog died unexpectedly after a short illness. When I started to look through the photos I found that I had some great memories but little in the way of good photos. I realised I had missed the chance to get that defining image that showed her true character and I had to make do with what I had. I now have a print hanging in the kitchen that goes part of the way but it really doesn't do her justice. It's a lesson for us all to capture those moments with and of the animals we love because we never know when they might be gone forever.
