Snickers The Shih Tzu

Her family’s 13 year old Shih Tzu, named Snickers, had suffered a traumatic medical episode and she thought he had died. Luckily, her husband, a dentist and retired Army medic, was home at the time. Snickers was barely conscious but alive nonetheless. They rushed him to the vet and after a battery of tests, he was diagnosed with intestinal cancer. Since his time left on earth is rapidly ticking away, I decided to grab a few shots of him this past weekend. Here are some of my favorites.
