Some posts are harder to write than others. This would be one of those posts. Several weeks ago my brother called to tell me that his dog, Ashton, had tumor on his spine. After hearing the news I was moved to call my brother back and ask if he would be interested in taking some photos with Ashton. My brother agreed and we set up a time to meet. On a beautiful warm afternoon we met at his house. Ashton was excited to get out and take a walk around the lake located near the house. He love being outside just as much as my brother. It was a wonderful evening. Sadly, one week later Ashton passed away. Ashton was my brother's boy. They had been the best of buddies for eleven years. He was the sweetest dog. He loved to talk to you when you walked in the front door. I know my brother's heart is hurting and he misses Ashton greatly. But as my son so wisely put, "You don't have to be sad... you're just going to see him again in heaven."
Rest in peace Ashton.
