Butch lived longer than expected.
His mom, Nancy, contacted me days before this past Christmas. Butch had cancer throughout his body. His Veterinarian predicted that Butch would not live past the New Year. I had intended to shut down for the Holidays, but I couldn’t and wouldn’t miss Butch.
On a beautiful morning, in a Kailua Park, we met Butch, Kasey (his doggy sister), and Nancy. Butch was old and sick, but he was strong. We played tug. He was still playful… still digging for treats.
Not long after that shoot, Nancy and her furry family moved to California. Butch made the move and for a time, he seemed to be doing better… but cancer is cancer, and on March 27th, with mom, Nancy, and sister, Kasey, by his side, Butch died.
Kasey keeps looking for him. She keeps going to the places that Butch would go. Wow, do we know that feeling.
