If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably noticed my 10lb fur child, Howard. I come by this Puppy Love honestly, as I was raised with incredible canine companions. They've always been part of our life, so when they leave us, it's heartbreaking. You miss their unwavering love and it truly feels like your family is incomplete.
Sadly, my Mom and Stepmother both had to bid farewell to pets recently. It's hard to figure out the right way to remember them, but when I saw Kim Vargo's Pet Shop portraits, I knew they would be perfect. Needless to say, many tears were shed on Christmas morning. Happy tears and memories.
She expertly captured Abbey and Smudge's personalities through their pup smiles. And at just a few inches, the portraits are a nice way to show off your pets without an enormous dog portrait in your home...awkward.
If you're a dog lover or buying for one, definitely be sure to check out the Pet Shop.
