The first time that Rusty and Ross's "mom" emailed me, my heart sunk. As I read the words about cancer and she wanted portraits taken before his surgery, I was nervous. Both for Ross and for her. I can't imagine the fear that her heart was consumed in. Ross is a super cute dachshund that had a mass removed so off course before pictures were needed. Fortunately, Ross went through surgery and is doing great. His doctors took great care of him.
