I was either going to capture the personality of an animal for this or the essence. Being that we just put our old dog down just 2 weeks ago, this felt most appropriate.
Animals serve as great comfort to many. And our young cats are no exception. Our old dog had become a huge burden; causing extreme stress (and sometimes unpredictable biting) and not having any life of her own. It was just a matter of arranging to have it done - never an easy decision.

Many thanks for the bling John!

one of my top picks - almost more essence than essence, if that makes any sense. (sorry about your dog; good that you did not have to decide this on your own.

I see what you're going for and I like it. Slightly too grainy tho, I must say and it could have had a bit more contrast.
