Lemmikloomad on nagu pereliikmed. Koos nendega moodustab pere ühtse terviku ja nende kaotamine on äärmiselt valus. Isegi valusam kui jäsemest ilma jäämine.

«Last Moments» ehk «Viimased hetked» on südantlõhestav fotoseeria Pulizeri auhinnale nomineeritud fotograaf Ross Taylorilt. Mees kutsuti mitmete perede juurde jäädvustamaks nende viimast hetke armastatud lemmikuga enne kui loom magama pandi. Piltidele on jäädvustatud inimeste ehe südamevalu ning pisarad, mis juba nii kergesti mööda ei lähe.

Tayloril tuli mõte seda temaatikat jäädvustada pärast seda, kui tema hea sõber tegi vananeva ja haige looma magamapanemisega selle valulise protsessi läbi.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Vanessa Gangadyal consoles her son, Ian, 8 while her husband Michael Gangadyal pets their dog, Ally, shortly it’s passing. • “Last Moments,” is a photo essay that explores the intimacy of the human-animal bond - specifically, the last moments before, and after, the passing of a pet at home with their owner. It is a somber, and intense, testimony to the bond and the pain that comes when it is broken. • This series looks at the intense connection shared between people and their pets. The decision to have at-home pet euthanasia is part of an emerging trend (to have end of life care in the home, instead of in a clinic). Nationally, scores of pet owners go through this painful experience each year. It’s important to note the immense care and compassion that the veterinarian community demonstrates towards the families going through this. • It's also important for people going through this to know they're not alone in their grief, and importantly, that their grief is not to be taken lightly. #love #pets #lastmoments •

«Kui keegi ütleb mulle, et nende süda on lemmiklooma surma pärast murtud, siis ma tunnen seda valu,» sõnas Taylor Washington Postile. «Ma olin löödud, kui ma olin tunnistajaks sõbra kannatustele ning armastusest oma koera vastu.»
