This week I got the opportunity to meet Emmett a 13 year-old red smooth dachshund recently diagnosed with severe heart problems. His mother fears that his prognoses will probably prematurely end his life with congestive heart failure. So, I did my best to immortalize the beautiful soul of Emmett in these photos. Today let’s celebrate Emmett, his life past, present and future.  May the days to come be more than they predict.

    Johnny, I just love the photos you took. You really did capture so many of his expressions and his spirit. Couldn’t believe he actually posed for you a few times. I will cherish the photos forever. Many thanks. Xo

    Emmett held on 8 months. He went to the bridge Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at around 12:20am. Thank you Johnny for the photos. I am forever grateful for them. ❤ Nothing can bring him back, but your photos, with the rest of the 14 years of photos and adventures together will keep his spirit alive for me.
