A Lesson in Love and Heart

One year ago today, we said goodbye to Kekoa. After a month of bucket list indulgences going from kale to turkey and then, that day, chocolate chip bacon ice cream, I said I love you one last time.

We pet owners talk a lot about heart dogs, that dog who just ‘got’ you, the dog who changed you and will never, ever be replaced (you can substitute dog for any pet, of course.) And once you have a heart dog, once you lose a heart dog, you may wonder if you will ever have another one again.

I’m here to say yes, you can.

Emmett was my heart dog, the dog who taught me fierce love and how to be a family and how even the best of us were allowed our jealous moments but we’d get over them eventually. He taught me forgiveness. I loved the other dogs I had before him just as much, Taffy and Mulan and Nuke, but he was the dog who spoke to my soul.

Kekoa was brought into our lives furtively, a sneak adoption if you will. We were supposed to adopt a different lab, a younger one, one glossier and with better teeth, but as I didn’t realize until after she was gone, she spoke to my daughter’s soul, and there it was. She was the shoe that fit. That was a February as well. This is her month, the month of heart.

Kekoa lived without a spiteful bone in her body. I think she growled once in her life, when Apollo tried to steal a bite of her food, and even then it was more indignant than menacing. She loved food, almost as much as she loved us.

When she died, when I made the decision to euthanize her when her bone cancer was causing her pain I couldn’t control, I wrestled with the same emotions every pet owner struggles with: uncertainty. Is it the right time? Guilt. I’m acting too soon. Pain. I don’t like seeing this. She was bothered by none of this internal turmoil, choosing instead to just trust us and sleep in my daughter’s room at night. I was so busy thinking of my own distress I really missed the boat on thinking about how the kids would be affected, but Kekoa stepped in- completely unaware she was even doing it- to be there for them.

Many things happened afterwards as a direct result of her death. I began working with Paws into Grace. In the midst of my mourning, her story wrote itself into the book proposal I was working on, which will be a forever monument to her. I committed to getting certified in pet loss counseling, which I completed last week, in order to give a voice to those who are sad and suffering so they know: NO, you are not alone and your grief is real. They don’t call them heart pets for no reason. They take some of it with them.

She was a heart dog too, and I never even gave her credit for it until long after she was gone. This sad, head hanging little black dog with terrible head/chest proportions and bad gas taught me how to take care of others just by being true to yourself. If that isn’t love, I don’t know what is.

Miss ya, girl. Thank you for everything.

SCARLET // A Photo Series For A Good Cause

SCARLET: A Photo Series For A Good Cause // Bubby and Bean

Back in 2012, a very talented photographer named Kelsey Goodwin submitted a gorgeous warehouse photo shoot to me.  I was quite impressed, and went on to feature another of her shoots last year.  Today, I’m thrilled to be sharing more of her work (and hoping to make it a more regular thing around here in 2014.) Kelsey shot and complied this particular series- which is focused on redheads and their freckles – as a fundraiser for the MS Society of Canada, which automatically makes it even more rad in my book.  As always, I’m smitten with her use of light and color, her attention to raw details, and the eerie, ethereal quality of her editing work.

I asked Kelsey to share a little about this project and the inspiration behind it.  “My favourite colour is orange,” she said.  “It’s in my business logo, it’s on my car and my boyfriend is orange. For those of you who know me, you know that I have had a long affair with gingers. I especially love photographing freckles so I have been wanting to do a photography exhibit as an ode to this special breed among us.”  (Love that!)

Kelsey also explained a little about the fundraiser.  “Every year, I volunteer at The Mistletoe Gala – a fundraiser for the MS Society of Canada. It’s taking a break this year, so I thought I would incorporate a silent auction as part of the exhibit to raise some funds for the cause.  I was blown away by the community response, especially at short notice – over 5k in product and services were donated!”
