Our poor little cocker spaniel Finnegan died suddenly last Friday. I’m still in shock as he was seemingly very healthy but contracted Leptospirosis and went downhill in 3 days fast. He was such a huge part of our family. He was the sweetest snuggle bug and our house is deathly quiet without him.
My daughter is graduating from high school this year, sniff sniff. After my mother died I took possession of her prom dress that she wore in 1957. I thought it would be a fitting tribute and a lovely senior photo if I had my daughter model it. Our cocker Finnegan had to get in on the action too.
My favourite field to do family photos in Stittsville is now a construction zone. As we were downtown Ottawa one day a few months ago, I noticed how beautiful the stairs were on the East Block of the Parliament Buildings and that they would make a great backdrop for this year’s photos. We parked at the National Arts Centre and saw a cool new art installation “Cloud” where I had to take a picture of my daughter with it. The lighting was not great for a whole family photo with it though.
My youngest child turned 14 yesterday. Since we have no family around he was lucky that both his aunt and grandmother visited and were able to celebrate with him.
