Default Gone but never forgotten

This is a portrait of my dear 12 year old American Staffordshire Terrier who we had to put down recently due to an illness. She will be missed beyond belief but I'm comforted to know we enjoyed her love. She enriched our lives and brought nothing but joy. She was a kind soul with a giving spirit. May she rest in peace.

Shot with a 5D3 50 1.4 lens and edited in PS. I wanted the photo to appear like a painting and have it seem Lexy was coming out of it. I'm not sure I was able to pull it off, but I like it just the same.

Thank you for looking....

Shutterbug, I'd say you pulled it off very nicely. A portrait worthy of her memory. Beautiful dog. We all get to love our animals far too briefly. It doesn't seem fair. God bless.

Thank you for taking the time to make a comment as I appreciate it. Your words are all so true....They are here all too brief but we're enriched for having them.

Sorry for your lost, dogs are just as much a part of the family as anyone. Your portrait of her looks wonderful, very well shot and processed.

Very sorry, I know how difficult it can be. I really like what you have created, should be in a frame.

Thank you all for your kind words of sympathy and for the photo. Losing her, 14 months after our boy dog, has been more difficult than I thought. I was recently given a gift certificate for a website that does prints, canvas, etc and I had thought I'd get Lexy's picture done so that it could be hung in our livingroom wall.

Again, thank you for your comments as they mean a great deal to me.

Thats a lovely shot of a very happy and well looked after pup.

Im so sorry to hear about your loss shutterbug, I lost my little bro Scampy (a jack russel) just over a year ago & i still choke up when i think about him.

Have comfort in the fact that you gave her the chance to be everything that she was.

Hi Shutterbug - that is a gorgeous photo. Oh, I am so so sorry to hear the news. I know exactly how you feel and words cannont express how much we love our dogs. They are always there for us and happy to see us, and when they depart for doggie heaven it is heartbreaking and the empty void is difficult to fill. At least you know that she is at peace and had a wonderful, long, and happy life with you. I still miss George after 6 months, so you take it easy and remember all the good times you had together. Thinking of you x x x
